Fried chicken strips (sweet rice flour)

I guess The Kid liked them, he ate all but 3 pieces and told me I should make them more often!

Btw you need 2x the seasoning using rice flour v. Wheat.

Yes, I did fried chicken tenderloins last night dipped in egg and herbed breadcrumbs, to which I added lots of salt, pepper and some parmesan cheese and dried garlic, and it was just about right (and I am not a "hotted up food" kind of person.) Also made a pasta salad with garlic, feta, kalamata olive, red onion, parmesan and herbs, with some Armenian cucumber spears on the side.

Grilled T-bone, taters, and a leaf or tow of something green, just for show. :rolleyes:

Yum! I love steak...if only I could eat it every day.

We are having leftovers. Fortunately, leftovers are just BBQ pulled pork that was cooked in a slowcooker all day. I use the McCormick's pulled pork seasoning pack, then add a bit more brown sugar to put it on the sweet side. Then we're going to have honey-roasted baby carrots and a Caesar salad.

For dessert - purple cows. (Vanilla ice cream with Faygo grape pop)

We had much of the same tonight except I added steamed broccoli to the mix. The blueberry ketchup is amazing! It is almost like a savoury jam that would go so well with wild duck or venison, too.

:lol::lol::lol:

Funny! Sometimes I do have Chex for breakfast! We eat whatever we want but in moderation - that is the key. We eat on smaller plates and I cook things in a very healthy way whenever possible. We eat a lot of raw fruit and vegetables and an incredibly varied diet. I could easily cook three meals a day for an entire year (actually, longer) without doubling up on one single dish even once. But we love variety! :D And I think that is important. We never get stuck with boring meals except maybe the odd breakfast.

We both do need to lose about 20 lb admittedly and are working towards it. We both exercise daily and try to make wise choices throughout the day. That does not always happen as I am a professional recipe tester and make some pretty delectable things frequently in addition to what I cook for us.

I also took Nutrition in university so our meals are usually balanced (at least throughout the day).

We are in for a major treat Friday night - will post later. :)

Sunshine burgers (barbeque flavor), okinawa yams (purple) and brussel sprouts. The last 2 dishes were topped with Earth Balance dairy/soy free buttery spread. Actually the whole thing was a 'leftovers' frozen dinner from a few weeks ago. I'm running out of those leftovers frozen dinners. So I'll need to cook again soon.

We actually ended up having a discussion about how gluten-free flours had a better flavor than wheat flour and he commented that what we were eating now was so much better than before gluten-free.

Got brave enough to make some mac & cheese to go with my grilled chicken. If I didn't make it myself I wouldn't have guessed it was gluten free. Maybe this isn't so bad after all. :D

    • Hey Joseph!   You might re-think that gluten-free oatmeal.   For years,  oatmeal was prohibited.  Researchers eventually determined that some celiacs could have oatmeal as long as it is pure (no possibility of cross contamination from field to factory).  But some 10% of celiacs  still react to oatmeal.  Plus, there is a new controversy over sorted vs. dedicated grown oats.  So, best to avoid oats for the first six months and then experiment.   When my GI tract is inflamed from celiac disease (flare-up) from accidentally being exposed to gluten, I stick to well-cooked foods (even fruit).  It makes it easier to digest.  Once better, I go back to my normal gluten-free diet.  
    • My son is 13 and we have been dealing with his unusual issues for years. By 3rd grade, he was The Hulk, breaking things, punching holes in walls and raging. He had depression, anxiety and panic attacks. His skin would have rashes or turn bright red and i didn't understand why (now i know it's salicylic acid added to conditioner, sunscreen, lotion, ect). We realized that dyes were a problem and cut those out. Little by little, we removed sulfur, sulfites, preservatives, salicylates (aspirin-we assume he will be allergic to this but he has never had it and we won't ever test it, most fruits, spices, veggies and honey), nitrates, soy sauce and many more. He lived on an all home made, special diet and he was better but not well. (We did the Feingold and Failsafe Diet but that wasn't enough). He was diagnosed with hypersensitivity to medication by 5th grade (tried anti-anxiety meds-big mistake). Consecutive doses of anything would get stuck in his body and then the real fun started, full body rash, suicidal thoughts, vomiting and my least favorite-hallucinations. He was in the ER for a fall from a tree and they gave ibuprofen and Vicodin. Within 30 minutes the rash spread up and down his whole body (including under the damn cast). The worst night of my life was trying to keep him from breaking his own cast off and talking him down from trying to hurt himself.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                             We tested my son for everything and anything, hormones, vitamin deficiency (later found out they don't test for nearly enough to really know) and thyroid. Everything was normal but a mildly low vitamin D level. He was very unhealthy, he was sick a LOT, allergies were bad, asthma and he developed food intolerances out of nowhere. We did a gluten/dairy free diet (because his sister is gluten/dairy free) but it made no difference and his diet was already so restricted. We did a year long food journal and also found an issue with pork, apples, citrus fruit, cinnamon, ect.  I researched my kid like it was my job. We tried many vitamins and supplements and he had bad reactions to many of them. I finally found a man with several of the same gene mutations (we tested with 23andme.com) who's Dr. thought it was a PST-Pathway issue. We decided to try the protocol of vitamins, supplements and amino acids to see if it made any difference and OMG, what a difference. At this point, we didn't have a pediatrician that actually listened so I asked several doctors about the specific vitamin/minerals/amino acids and kept all the does to a child size dose.  We had always used epsom salts as a response to a reaction in something, not as a preventative measure. We now soak his feet twice a day in Epsom salt water (or in the bath), it gives him a form of sulfur that his body was missing and now he can eat anything he wants (except soy sauce but we'll gladly leave that out). He takes molybdenum everyday with magnesium/calcium and vitamin D3 (and when we stop that, panic attacks come back. Weekly he takes milk thistle (we tried L-Glycine but too much gave him terrible insomnia (like 3 days of barely any sleep) and milk thistle works just as well to keep his liver open and working it's best), B vitamins, Cod liver oil capsules with Vitamins A and D and liquid Zinc.  His personality changed on the L-Glycine in a more outgoing way but then in a manic, not himself way so that scared us. Since the supplements started (6 months ago), his anxiety and depression is gone (and it was really controlling how we lived). He would never talk to people before...he was diagnosed with selective mutism but we felt that was incorrect and he was just very shy. He never liked talking with adults. Now, there is no problem, he is not super chatty with everyone but all he adults in our family noticed immediately. He is ready to stop home schooling and start high school next year. He has become a responsible, sweet, calm and caring child. No more daily fights, no more holes in the walls, no more rage. Our daughter has anorexia and we have been very busy dealing with her behaviors and missed the daily vitamins on occasion for several days....old son comes raging back. It doesn't take too long to figure out the mistake and gets him back where he needs to be. We did some genetic testing with a neurologist who specializes in metabolic function and while he tested for some helpful issues relating to hypersensitivity to medication, I still got the impression that he thought it was a placebo effect. We have burned through many therapists, pediatricians, a neuropsychologist, a psychiatrist, a gastroenterologist and possibly this neurologist. I hate not being taken seriously because while they may not agree with my ideas, they have nothing to offer in return.   
    • Yep no fruit, juice, sugar, or grains like oatmeal. The sugars glucose, fructose etc. Are common causes of flares in some. Sugar free fiber like nuts, but butters, cocanibs seem to be great for me. Keto diet sugar free high fat, mostly over cooked to mush or blended works great for me......heck as a baker I had to invent low carb, grain free, starch free bread. Sorta lead to a god like revelation and business took off with diabetics and my bakery.
    • Gastritis was my initial diagnoses before finding out I had celiac. The pains from the gastritis were terrible. I had to wake up in the middle of the night to eat cause I felt nauseous. The Doc prescribed me omeprozole and antacids. I took the meds for about a week but I cured it mostly by not drinking and eliminated caffeine intake. Alcohol was one of the main causes for mine 
    • The UC is a whole different beast. I’ve been eliminating tons of food. Meat is definitely good to me. I can eat all the steak, chicken, and pork without problems. I agree that paleo would be great for me. I’m gonna look more into their recipes.  Have you had any problems with fruits and veggies causing flare ups? I make smoothies with mixed berries, banana, gluten free oatmeal, spinach, and a splash of juice. It seems to be a cause. Maybe it’s the high fiber? I’m not sure. That and caffeine. I’m having a hard time eliminating caffeine though
