Stir-fry! I probably eat stir-fries 4-5 days per week, and they're always different! Last night was broccoli, carrots, celery, onion, peanuts, chickpeas, quinoa and sweet chili sauce (the Thai kitchen brand). Tonight I'm going to experiment...chicken and pineapple with rice cooked in coconut milk (I've had this can forever and want to use it), veggies, hot peppers and maybe some curry? A sweet and spicy kind of deal? I'm always throwing everything I have in a pan, it's usually tasty :D

When I don't feel like cooking it's popcorn or bacon for me as well, sometimes my peanut butter cookies (which are dangerous, my boyfriend and I will eat a whole pan because they are so flippin' good!) :ph34r:

Dinner - Homemade chicken and rice soup, two slices of Udi's bread toasted and flourless peanut butter cookies. Maybe an apple or Clementine later.

Lunch was the same except I had some Glutino pretzels to go with the soup. I had a colonoscopy this morning so am taking it easy on food today, which sure beats yesterday's liquid diet...and the colon prep (we won't even go there)!!! ph34r.gif

YES!!! Actually I have printed out a lot of recipes, some of which are already in a 3-ring notebook. At the rate I'm going, I think I need to pick up a larger one. I bought dividers but, of course, haven't done a thing with them yet. That sounds like a good new year's project for the dead of winter. Sheesh, if feels like the dead of winter already here in Pennsylvania but I know I shouldn't complain too much compared to those of you in the upper Midwest and elsewhere.

Oldest picky son said make this veg more often. Younger, less picky one said it was fine as long as I didn't make him eat the red peps. I said "Yeah!"

Tonight for dinner I went gluten free AND Vegetarian. I sauteed some onions and fresh garlic in olive oil, added some sliced mushrooms, then a veggie mix I found in the freezer case (Broccoli, green beans sliced thin, carrot sticks, kidney beans, black beans and navy beans all in one) added about a cup or so of that and then some fresh spinach at the end. Some herbs and some chili flakes. I made brown rice pasta and mixed it in with this delish veggie mix and a wee bit of olive oil. Topped with grated parmesan reggiano cheese. Took 10 min to make too...!! :P Awesomeness in a bowl.

    • Called my GI doctor today to make sure he is going to look at my small intestine and do biopsy for Celiac for my EGD and he is. Thanks for the tip everyone about have to start eating gluten again. The office told me to break my gluten free diet and start eating gluten everyday until my EGD. Here's to being miserable again for a few weeks 🍻🍞😩
    • I can completely relate! The horrible mental effects that I have been living with for years is the absolute worst side effect of eating gluten, HANDS DOWN. Worse than the endless tummy aches, worse than the constant diarrhea, worse than the week long migraines, worse than the daily fatigue and body pain.... I honestly though there was something seriously wrong with me and hated my life because of how I felt mentally. I always felt like I was drowning, not in control of my thoughts, trapped in some unexplained misery. My head was always so cloudy, and I was mad because I always felt so slow and stupid. I would feel so lethargic and sad and empty while at the same time be raging inside, wanting to rip out of my own skin. I was mean, terrible, would snap at the people closest to me for no good reason and just felt like I hated everyone and everything. Think of how crappy you feel when you have a terrible cold and flu - I felt that crappy, but mentally. Some days were really bad, some were mild. I always thought it was because I was getting a migraine, or because I had a migraine, or because I had just overcome a migraine, because I didn't sleep well, because....always a random reason to justify why we have all these weird unrelated symptoms before we get diagnosed. I'm happy to say that I have been gluten-free for about 2 months now and though I am not symptom free, the first thing that improved was my mood. I no longer feel foggy and miserable. For the first time in years, my head is clear, I can actually think, and I feel positive and like I am in control of what's going on in my head. I don't hate the world. I don't spend every day bawled up on the corner of the couch depressed and angry. The release of these horrible symptoms is enough to never make me want to cheat, no matter what I have to miss out on. So insane how a little minuscule amount of a stupid protein can wreck such havoc. 
    • I wanted to collect some of the info on NCGI in one place so that visitors who test negative but may still have an issue with gluten can be directed there.

    • I was just diagnosed in March and I totally feel you. I'm having a hard enough time with determining which lip glosses are safe, let alone all my face products etc. I feel like this 'grey area' is the biggest annoyance with Celiac. So many foods/cosmetics I thought were safe after reading the ingredient list are actually not safe at all! One website says it's safe, one says its not. All these unfamiliar ingredients and even after googling term after term still so many grey areas!! I'm sure in time it gets easier and second nature and you learn by trial and error but holy this constant uncertainty is super annoying haha.
    • This place is great. Learning a lot. Honestly, I've known people with celiacs in the past, but it never occurred to me that that's what could be wrong with me. But the more I learn, the more it fits. One more thought, the articles I'm reading seem to say that we need to avoid gluten meticulously. I'm certain that I didn't accidentally eat gluten, because I've basically only eaten meat and veggies. But, my family has continued eating as normal. My kids making pancakes and it getting in the air,  toast with all the crumbs everywhere, etc. Could that exposure be enough to keep my blood antibodies high? Or does it need to be ingested?
