Was planning on burgers (I ended up buying beef today) but hubby had to work late and wasn't in the mood to grill. I didn't feel like cooking so I made some Tinkyada spaghetti and meat sauce with the beef.

Today I cooked stuffed peppers (turkey meat, veggies, brown rice, in a tomato-basil-and garlic sauce) with apple cider roasted vegetables on the side. It was delicious, and more important free of all eight allergens for my brother.

We're having grilled hog snapper thai style with basatmi rice and lemon drop martinis. Maybe a salad, maybe not. (Had salad for lunch, as usual.) So we're off to Thailand tonight. :D

I pulled a single serving of chili out of my freezer for dinner. So does that mean I took a trip to Mexico? :lol: :lol: :lol:

I'm hopeless! That's what happens when you live alone...who needs a table? I put shredded cheddar cheese on it...does that count? And the chili is homemade! I'll try not to spill it on my keyboard. :P

You're too funny. When my husband is away our kitchen table stands alone. :P

Is the cheese at least Mexican? If so, which region in Mexico? Was the chili powder homemade or did you..GASP...buy it?? :lol::lol: I'll let you get back to Mexico in peace... B)

Well, it's lunch as well as supper, but I'm proud of myself. I COOKED something and it came out really good! I roasted a large chicken breast (with both skin and bones), and when it was done I took the meat off the bones (after I stood at the counter and ate some of the cripay skin :) ). Then I added water to the drippings and cooked my brown rice in that water/drippings mixture. I added some parsley, and some rosemary. Now, I love the taste of rosemary, but I don't like chewing on those "twigs", so I put it in a tea ball and hung it over the side of the pan. It gave the rice a great flavor.

So then I mixed the shredded chicken with the rice and added some finely chopped broccoli. Not only does it taste good, but it's kind of pretty to look at too. That's the way I had it for lunch, but I've got a question: I have some gluten-free sour cream that I added some garlic to that I've been using as a vegetable dip. Would it be good if I added a touch of that to the mix? I'm thinking the sour cream part might be OK, but I don't know if the garlic will go good with the rosemary. What do you experienced cooks think?

Not sure what we're having tonight but tomorrow night it's my little girl's birthday so her choice is lentil rissoles with mashed potato, roast sweet potato, pumpkin and carrot and steame broccoli and zucchini so that's for tomorrow night. I think maybe a salad or something tonight, not sure yet.

Salmon Artichoke Patties (retro with a post-millenium twist)

Summer Smashed Red Potatoes

Peas (freezer, sadly, the garden was too wet to pick from)

Chocolate

First serious cooked meal in almost a week-- I've been furiously working on final edits on my cooking for one cookbook. It's almost there, but find it sort of ironic that I've been living on peanut butter and carrot sticks while finishing a cookbook on healthy eating for one.

I wish I knew...I had planned on having taco chicken, coat chicken with taco season and pan fry it then after it's mostly cook add salsa and let it soak up some flavor. We used to serve it with sour cream, but I'm not sure we will do that when we have it.

Grilled mini olive burgers, (no buns) cottage cheese and fresh black cherries. That probably sounds disgusting, but it was really god.

I think you sould go with your insticts. If you want to be cautious, just mix a bit of the chicken with the sour cream/garlic and taste it after if sits for a few hours or overnight.

If you want to stretch the chicken a bit farther, chop up grapes, celery, apples, toss in some nuts, and have that on a bed of lettuce or in a lettuce wrap. You could throw in some curry powder if you want to change it up a bit. My thinking is that rosemary is good with potatoes and sour cream is good with potatoes, so rosemary garlic sour cream is probably the bomb. I think that will be good with cold chicken.

P.S. Rosemary and grainy gluten-free mustard are really tasty as a sauce or marinade. Just add agave, honey or brown sugar. Unbelievably good, and who'd have thought?

Don't forget Germany (bratwurst). That was kind of a mishmash when you think about it (but a tasty mishmash). :P

    • In many cases no.....I consume heavy magnesium foods like pumpkin seeds, cocoa nibs etc....and still need 2-3x the dose of magnesium recommendations. Going on more of what poster boy said. You dose magnesium to tolerance with citrate like Natural Vitality Calm you start off small partial doses and slow ramp up....it can hit you hard causing gas and D if you go to quick into it. You dose citrate to tolerance meaning you slowly up your dose til you get loose stools...then back down a bit. You should have vivid dreams with a good dosing....also if it becomes to harsh or you can not handle citrate there is Doctors Best Glycinate...it does not have the gut effects at all...but the dreams and how much it makes you relax is more more felt.   ...with this disease you can have a food intolerance or allergy crop up out of the blue....like no where. You have a autoimmune disease....celiac it effects your immune system and can make it really wonky. Like it seems to always be on guard like a sleep deprived sentry on stim packs...jumps at everything and shoots it. If you get sick, eat something odd or harsh you system might red flag it as a issue for awhile and go bonkers....keep a food diary and try a food rotation in the mean time...OH as a example to this, I was fine with chia seeds last week...I got a cold over the weekend....same bag, same brand same way....withing 30mins I now puke if I eat them...new intolerance.....I also am finding jalapenos/paprika making it sleepy tired....so I am removing them both for a few months from my diet and changing to other sources for fats/fiber and vitamin A/C til I get over that issue.....these things just happen. https://www.mindbodygreen.com/articles/are-food-sensitivities-for-life
    • Hi Isabel, Your body needs nutrients to grow.  Nutrients not absorbed well when we have celiac disease damage in our guts.   But, if you do a good job of avoiding gluten, the gut damage should heal and you will be able to absorb nutrients again. The thing to remember is celiac disease is an immune system reaction.  Immune reactions are very sensitive and just a tiny amount of gluten can get them going.   And they can last for months.  So it;s very important to avoid all gluten all the time, to keep the immune reaction down.  Keeping the immune reaction down keeps the damage down, and the healing can keep up. You may start to grow more if you can absorb nutrients better.  Some extra vitamin pills might be a good idea.  Your doctor should know.  
    • Thank you Gail for your response. Of course one should be mindful of the possibility of food allergies but I don't think that's the case with my current situations. Save for gluten containing product, everything I eat now I used to eat before with no reaction whatsoever. I think my issue is more likely to be deficiency in minerals and such.
    • Posterboy, thank you for your response!    Regarding magnesium, do you think relying on food sources like fruits, bananas in particular, is not enough? Just out of curiosity, when you started taking Magnesiums Citrate supplements, did you already consume enough fruits?
    • I fix meal packs in a food prep kit I got online called a jax pack I can fix enough for 1-3 days depending on which pack I fill. I find fixing full on meals in advance...think something that looks great bento style and smells amazing to make others jealous and make it look pretty so you can smile when you pull it out and brag about it.....I had to go the ego route with it sometimes to comfort myself. This allows me to go out and eat sometimes with others. I learned to cook and offer to cook for others...perhaps you can practice and amaze your friends by fixing up some gluten-free dish like crock pot roast, or chicken shred it and have a nacho party? Think of something easy, naturally gluten-free and can bring everyone together and amaze them with your cooking skills. 

      I have comprehensive list of gluten free foods, while we do normally suggest a whole foods only diet, there are options now days for instant meals, and all those standard kids quick foods like hot pockets, cheese sticks, nuggets, tots, corn dogs, etc now from other companies so you can also look the part and not feel that different.

      You are indeed very lucky to have medical services...I have not been able to see a actual doctor since last fall when I lost insurance....I have some friends who are doctors who help out and a chiropractor that will work with me but I can not get blood or labs done.....imagine having to trouble shoot everything and go hit and miss all the time.....
