where do u get the quinoa flat bread?

I make my own, almost everyday.

Quinoa Flat Bread

1 cup Quinoa flour ( you can switch it up with other flours)

1/2 teaspoon Xanthan gum

pinch of salt

3/4 cup water

Mix it up, it will be like thick porridge.

Use parchment paper on a cookie sheet and with wet fingers pat and spread dough into flat breads (1/4 inch).

I usually make four for burgers.

Top with salt or herbs and bake at 400 for about 15 to 20 minutes.

For burgers I add about a tablespoon baking soda and pat them about 1/2 inch thick and bake at 350 for about 20 to 30 minutes. When I take them out of the oven I cover them so they are not too crispy. Then I use a serrated tomato knife to slice them open.

It's been snowing like crazy since yesterday and I was out shoveling so wanted something to warm me up.

Oven Mac and Cheese and Broccoli

And I may make peanut butter cookies for later.

Hamburgers in lettuce "buns" and homemade oven fries. Bing cherries for dessert.

This was such a great idea I decided to have burgers tonight. It never dawned on me to just wrap it in lettuce. I paired it with some tater tots. I imagine when I'm craving my sugar fix later I'll have some of my canned peaches from last fall. (I have no fear of cc because I am insane about kitchen cleanliness, especially when canning.)

Since it's so cold out we decided to make chicken noodle soup. It's also one of our simple, don't have to stand in the kitchen meals.

I took the chicken and browned it in olive oil on the stove, then cut it up and added it to a pot with salt, pepper, garlic, onion and enough water to make the amount of broth we want. Let that simmer for about 20 min. until it tasted like chicken broth instead of water then added some chopped baby carrots and kept simmering it. Meanwhile made some pad thai rice noodles. When it was time to serve put the noodles in the bowl and then added the soup.

It really hit the spot tonight.

Soup does sound pretty good. I made stock from my leftover Thanksgiving turkey so all I have to do is pop that in a pot and add veggies and noodles. It's a great way to simplify winter soup.

That does look good! Can you get just the noodles? I always see kits to make a meal without the meat with the seasoning packet in it. Is that what you mean? Or do you buy just the rice noodles? I've never seen JUST THE NOODLES. Will have to look for that.

Yes you can get just the noodles. Mine were Annie Chun's brand.

I have seen rice noodles in the grocery store but if you have an Asian store near you, they will be downright cheap.

On our most recent visit to an Asian store we got eight different kinds of noodles including cellophane, green bean, sweet potato, mung bean, green pea - they are so inexpensive and lovely and, best of all, gluten free.

That makes our 16* F look like a heat wave.

Tonight was lamb gravy over rice, a total comfort meal with lots of carbs and calories :D

Yep! The MINUS 37 does not include windchill which can make it feel far worse. The coldest temperature we had was -51F and with windchill -65F. Not so good.

I know - sometimes we think we are quite insane. We cannot wait to move to Croatia! The Mediterranean climate is certainly a far cry from this frigid barren giant ice cube!

In northern Alberta. The funny thing is, nothing shuts down - everyone is expected to continue going to work, school, whatever. Our vehicle tires become square and thump when driving until they warm up; skin can freeze in 90 seconds. It can be downright dangerous! Blech. :angry:

    • Hi Could a mod please move this post:   and my reply below to a new thread when they get a chance? Thanks! Matt
    • Hello and welcome Firstly, don't worry about it but for ease your post (and hopefully my reply) will probably be moved to its own thread. That will make it easier for others to see it and reply and also help Galaxy's own thread here on track and making sense.  The antibodies that the celiac tests look for can drop very quickly, so... maybe? Celiac is difficult to test for, there are different tests and sometimes someone doesnt test on one but does on the other. If you can get a copy of the tests and post it here the community may be able to help explain the results.  It may have shown damage to the villi, the little tendrils in your intestine that help you extract nutrients from your food. Celiac is one, but not the only, way in which they can get damaged leading to a vast number of potential symptoms and further making diagnosis a tricky proposition. Definitely, there's a connection. Here's a page that explains it in detail: https://stomachachefree.wordpress.com/2012/03/21/liver-disease-in-celiacs/ Fantastic  It sounds as if your doctors were happy to diagnose you on the basis of the endoscopy? It may be then that you've found your answer. I hope so, you've clearly had a rotten and very scary time.  I'm sure with the positive reaction to the diet you want to go on and get healthy, but I would only add that you should discuss this with your doctors, because they may want to exclude other potential causes if they've not confirmed celiac at this point. Check out the advice for newly diagnosed here: To your family I'd simply say that celiac is a disease of the autoimmune system, the part of our body that fights diseases and keeps us safe. In celiac people the autoimmune system see's the gluten protein found in wheat, barley, or rye grains as a threat to the system and it produces antibodies to attack it and in doing so attacks it's own body as well. It's genetic in component so close family members should consider a test if they have any of the many symptoms. There's roughly 1 person in 100 with celiac but most of them don't know it and are risking getting or staying sick by not finding out.  There's further info for them and you here: https://www.celiac.com/gluten-free/announcement/3-frequently-asked-questions-about-celiac-disease/ I'm going to ask a mod to move your post and my reply to a new thread, but wanted to give you an answer first The good news is you've found a great site and there will be lots of support for you here. You've also got 'lucky' in that if you're going to have an autoimmune condition, celiac is a good one  Most react really well to the gluten free diet and you will hopefully have much more healing to come! Best wishes Matt
    • Please share what was so difficult about starting your account.
    • I'm new here so please forgive me if I'm in the wrong forum. But I could use some clarity and input.. So I'll try to make my story brief as possible😀 So about 8 months ago I began itching uncontrollably and after going to the Dr for labs she found my liver enzymes were 5x what they should be and was referred to a gastro Dr.  Gastrointestinal Dr ran multiple scans, blood work over the next 2 months and referred me to teaching hospital with a " tumor board" apparently I had a mass within my bile ducts that was blocking bile from liver. Was given a grim diagnosis of rare cancer and told would be dead within the year. Then had an endoscopy done to get tissue of the mass and for some reason it had partially resolved and was no longer blocking bile duct. At this point they could not find and cancerous cells. So fast forward 3 months I'm still in pain and had another endoscopy and the biopsy taken showed high possibility of celiacs.  The blood work was negative for celiac but after the grim cancerous diagnosis I had been unable to eat for 2 weeks or so and so I'm not sure if that would have skewed the labs?. How could the biopsy show high possibility of celiac?  And had anyone heard of celiac causing inflammation in the bile ducts?  I have been gluten-free for 6 weeks and have been feeling remarkably better pain in the upper right quadrant is less, and migraines ( I have had for my whole life) have lessened.  So all this to say I don't understand celiacs and how to explain it to family. Or how all of a sudden this happens. Ask if anyone can shed any insight I would appreciate it. Blessings   
    • Thank you for taking the time for sharing that info. Don't we have the best disease ever! There's got to be a better way to cut down the scarring. Yes, I've scratched till it bleed. Can't help it. It's like having a bunch of mosquito bites. Yes, only gluten free now. Still have bursts, so probably am being exposed to gluten. Will need to stop dapsone soon. Good luck with your situation.
