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.

What do you experienced cooks think?

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?

    • Before ordering the endoscopy, you would think they would order the complete celiac panel.  Not all celiacs (like me) ever get a positive TTG (I do test positive to the DGP, but negative to the EMA and TTG).  You would think that the additional blood tests would be way more cost effective than going directly to endoscopy.  The endoscopy usually is still considered necessary for a celiac diagnosis, but there does not seem to be strong evidence that she has celiac disease other than a family history.   Some celiacs are seronegative negative, but your daughter was only negative on just one of the celiac tests.  So, she MIGHT be seronegative.  More investigation is needed.  She is NOT IgA deficient, at least for celiac testing (for celiac disease this test is just a control test).   The DGP test seems to be better for small children.   I do not have the complete health history of your child, but I would seek a second opinion before going to an endoscopy at this time with only one test result.  Try to find a celiac-savvy GI -- one who follows what the American GI Association  recommendations for celiac disease and what the Mayo Clinic or a large celiac research center recommends for testing protocol. https://www.mayomedicallaboratories.com/it-mmfiles/Celiac_Disease_Diagnostic_Testing_Algorithm.pdf https://gi.org/guideline/diagnosis-and-management-of-celiac-disease/  
    •   Hello linzk8! I would suggest you to go with natural foods as you are allergic to latex. One of my friends had the same problem. She also had latex allergic. She used Indian nuts to lose weight purchased from the official site of Nuez Dela India and achieved a success. You can also check the same. Eating at the right time is also important. Avoid eating very late at night. It's fine to eat in between meals, but limit your proportions. Never starve yourself! Hope this could help you!
    • My family visited Peru (my 13 year old has celiac) last Christmas, and we found Peru rather gluten free friendly. Peru is the land of corn and potatoes, and they have lots of grill meats.   Their cooking ingredients tend to be naturally gluten-free.   We did the 4 day Inca trail hike to Machu Picchu, and our chef did a great job making gluten-free meals for my daughter.  
    • Most physicians follow the joint commission’s guidelines on prescribing HTN medications which usually begin with a diuretic and calcium channel blocker (the amlodipine) - see below. Is it possible that your bp was still not controlled on the CCB (amlodipine)? So the ARB was added? Again, I’d just like to say that just bc a drug does have certain adverse effects does not mean you will have them, but I understand if you would not even want to take the chance, given a previous history of celiac disease. http://www.aafp.org/afp/2014/1001/p503.html “In the general nonblack population, including those with diabetes, initial anti-hypertensive treatment should include a thiazide diuretic, calcium channel blocker, angiotensin-converting enzyme (ACE) inhibitor, or angiotensin receptor blocker (ARB). In the general black population, including those with diabetes, initial treatment should include a thiazide diuretic or calcium channel blocker. If the target blood pressure is not reached within one month after initiating therapy, the dosage of the initial medication should be increased or a second medication should be added (thiazide diuretic, calcium channel blocker, ACE inhibitor, or ARB; do not combine an ACE inhibitor with an ARB). Blood pressure should be monitored and the treatment regimen adjusted until the target blood pressure is reached. A third drug should be added if necessary; however, if the target blood pressure cannot be achieved using only the drug classes listed above, antihypertensive drugs from other classes can be used (e.g., beta blockers, aldosterone antagonists). Referral to a physician with expertise in treating hypertension may be necessary for patients who do not reach the target blood pressure using these strategies.” Drugs for BP in different classes work by different mechanisms. It may be worth it to print out those huge, long drug information sheets and go over them with a fine toothed comb. As for CoQ10, have you checked for coupons online? Can your doctor write you an Rx and get your insurance to pay? They might say it’s on OTC and you have to pay out of pocket, but it may be worth it to find a way around that - would a prior authorization do the trick? I don’t know, just bringing up the questions. In the report you cited, these concluding words were to me, chilling:
      “Therefore, we suggest the possibility of a class effect.” Losartan, olmeseartan - doesn’t matter. And I'll say it again, there must be a way to disseminate this information more widely as I had no idea about this adverse effect, and never heard any docs speaking about it either. It really warrants wider sharing. Finally, one person who is often an overlooked resource is your pharmacist. They have just tons of knowledge and should be able to talk to you in some depth if asked, in an articulate, easy to understand way. They may even be able to do some digging and research for you. Plumbago
    • Plumbago et al, Thanks for letting me know  about the "artan" drugs being ARBs. I think Cyclinglady was right the Losartan research is not free and thus not public. I saw the link with no abstract but wanted to read it to confirm as you noted in your ETA that it was another "Artan" drug Losartan causing the problem. I believe it is. I found a great (after more digging) review of all the "artans"/ARBs or most of them about whether they can contribute to sprue symptom's in addition to Benicar. here on wiley as studied by the alimentary pharmacology and therapeutic journal (AP&T) for short. http://onlinelibrary.wiley.com/doi/10.1111/apt.14176/full I wish I knew how to post the able alone it is very informative.  Please scroll over the table to the end of it since it even tells how long to expect before your sprue symptom's/conditions improve IF the "artan" drug is causing your symptom's which I find the most helpful thing about the table.  They also note histological feature (degree of villi blunting) to expect on biopsy. They note Losartan can cause "total atrophy of duodenal villi" by their reporting. I also recently had an issue with my potassium levels so I feel sure it is the Losartan. I remember reading a study about how losartan was better at the "chronic cough" I had developed using Lisinopril so I changed to Losartan a few years ago . . . now I find I could of been making my GI symptom's worse. But to answer  your other question since I began taking Folic Acid a few months ago my BP numbers went down to a healthy level of 120/80 or less sometimes . . . but with medicine. I had already been thinking I wanted to try get off the BP medicine (for good) so this is more motivation. C0q10 worked well but it is too expensive for me to take all the time! I called my doctor to have them put me back on Amlodipine/Norvasc and I can't remember why I changed off that medicine to begin with now.  I do remember needing two medicine's back then to control my BP so maybe we stopped the Norvasc instead of the Linsinopril. But now that they have put me back on Norvasc I hope my potassium levels will correct themselves. I just don't feel safe anymore taking Losartan after learning it could be making my GI symptom's worse or causing the to be unreliable. I first thought my touch of D. was from an antibiotic round but when kefir didn't get me back on track I suspected something else when my Vitamin D levels showed up low too again! Thanks everybody for ya'lls great suggestions and good research on my behalf. I also recommend this verywell article if you are still having GI problems and you suspect an "artan" like ARBs BP medicine and looking for a medicine that might have less severe  or more manageable symptom's for your lifestyle because it comprehensively list's the medicine's by drug types. https://www.verywell.com/hypertension-drugs-1745989 no medicine is without a side effect as (I) am learning but I never thought sprue would be one for my BP medicine and why I prefer Vitamins when I can find out which one too take. Now that I have the Norvasc approved as a replacement for the Losartan I might see if my BP goes up again if I stop my medicine all together as I was hoping the Folic Acid might help me with it (without medicine) and it explains why I was low in Folic Acid to begin with again. posterboy,
