I do a taco-less taco too. Had one for lunch. Minus the cheese (low iodine). Sigh. I want CHEESE!

Dinner was BBQ Baby Back Ribs & white acre peas.

I had fresh okra that needed to be cooked, and I didn't feel like cooking. But I hate to waste food!

I boiled 2 cups of red lentils with 2 cups of water and a can of diced tomatos while I sauteed chopped onion, serrano pepper, red pepper, garlic and sliced okra over medium high heat for 7-10 minutes. The onions actually burnt (and turned sweet) and the okra was crisp and flavorful vs. being slimy. Added 1 tsp cumin, 1/2 tsp. tumeric, S&P & the juice of a whole lemon to the lentils and served the veggies over the lentils garnished with creme fraiche and fresh chopped flat leaf parsley. It was the bees knees...quick, easy, healty and full of flavor.

The creme frache isn't necessary, you could substitute with sour cream or plain or greek yogurt, or forego.

My friend and I made vietnamese spring rolls with rice paper, rice noodles, lettuce, shrimp, red pepper, cashews and shredded carrots with a gluten-free peanut sauce for dipping. It was time consuming but delicious.

I hope you get better quickly love2travel!

Had pot roast here.

Thanks! Sometimes when you have a bad cold you feel as though you deserve to be spoiled to bits and waited on. :P

Still sick today so made gluten-free crispy crust pizza with all sorts of delicious toppings. It was incredible.

I really enjoy making spring rolls. They are so easy yet taste complicated. I love that you can make hundreds of fillings and sauces. They are so versatile!

People would be amazed at how well those with celiac can eat. The meal you just mentioned is naturally gluten free but some do not think of it that way.

I also made Vegetable Wellington Redux with gluten Phyllo dough from Vegetarian times magazine for my vegetarian son yesterday. It's asparagus with red Bell pepper, onion, two cheeses, pesto and spinach baked in the Phyllo dough.

I would like to ask you guys for a homemade gluten free Phyllo recipe that you tried and it was good. Please!!!

I want to make this gluten free for myself.

I came home for lunch today and pan fried two of the leftovers in a little coconut oil to heat and crisp them up! To die for delicious.

No one's cooking tonight? I'm looking forward to meat tonight since my husband, the vegetarian, is away.

-pan-fried spinach & feta chicken sausage (they didn't make them like this when I was a kid)

-jalapeno applesauce

-sauteed broccoli rabe with crispy garlic pieces*

-polenta rounds

*I slice garlic thinly and fry it in some olive oil until it browns. Then, I'll add it to my greens once they're cooked. Better than breadcrumbs!

I've been sick with a cold and a cough for a few weeks and need to go to the doctor. It's been butternut squash soup and tonight a bacon and cheese baked potato. I feel lousy! I got CC this past weekend at my own hands. I have a shared household. I've had two great pain free months until this weekend, so that's a blessing!

I'm drooling at what you guys are having. I'm still having to watch the iodine intake otherwise I would be inhaling your meals straight off of my computer screen! Asparagus! Ohhhhhhhhhhhhhh. Drooling. High in iodine. Gouda cheese! Sigh. Same story.

Baby back ribs -- no BBQ sauce tonight.

Sweet Potatoes w/ melted marshmallows on top of the slices

Crookneck squash braised in coconut oil

Simple food but still very tasty!

I'm in the same boat as you, but I got more things to watch: all nuts, but I found sunflower butter that taste like nuts to me and I can manage 2-3 Tbsp. without major problem; kiwi, everything with honey, except clover honey in small amounts (I don't know why- probably pollen is the issue); new thing for me: casein allergy and I forgot something strange: orange aroma, or oil from orange peels, orange zest. All allergens that I have are causing my throat to shut, or uncontrolled cough.

Yesterday I also try to bake cake from potato dough. It was disaster. Dough tasted like burned potato and filling? OMG, yucky! I threw the all cake in garbage.

Even good cook can burn dinner sometimes.:lol: :lol: :lol:

To me it would be color...but that doesn't necessarily mean that's correct. ohmy.gif You wouldn't want black flecks in white sauce for example. tongue.gif

    • I've given up on all those processed gluten free foods out there and have stuck to eating a whole foods diet. I have noticed such a huge, massive, difference in my energy, mood, sleep, and well being. Needless to say I've been doing a lot of cooking but have been leaving sugar out because I don't know the safe brands. I tried using Stevia in the raw but keep getting horrible headaches when I use it. I saw that the first ingredient is Dextrose so it's not "raw". Anyway, what are the safe brands out there as far as white and brown sugars go? I made saurkraut and pork chops last night and would've loved potato salad. Also while I'm on here, what about Mayo? What's safe? I saw Sir Kennsington was gluten-free Certified.
    • My Celiac disease presented as yours did: anemia, unexplained weight loss, aches and pains (due to vitamin and mineral deficiencies from malabsorption), the abdominal burning (whether I ate or not), decreased appetite, itching, the works. Plus I had a mood like a gorgon, which wasn't helped by my friends telling me "how slender!" I looked. My bones were basically all that was holding me up. I've had the blood panel too, which has proven very informative. I had a follow-up celiac panel after I'd been on the diet for over a year and it showed the diet was working. I also went through an anger phase because my (now former) doc (who is also my dad's doc and knows he has celiac AND knows we're related...) just wrote me a prescription for antidepressants, whereas I might have been spared years of feeling crappy (my late 30s!) if he'd just ordered a CBC and found the anemia. I'm a woman and I feel like sometimes whatever you say to a doc (even female docs!), all they hear is "psych symptoms". It really made me mad. But I've always pooped like a champ so I didn't exactly have typical symptoms either. Then I thought about how long it took my poor dad to get diagnosed (decades), which was before there was all this awareness, and I feel grateful for the fact that it took comparatively far less time for me to get my diagnosis and start feeling better. Don't worry about not finding stuff you like to eat: since gluten-free has become "the new thing" there are so many choices and the price has come down considerably since my dad got diagnosed (over 12 years ago). If your doc confirms celiac, then you'll be back on the (albeit gluten-free!) mac and cheese in no time, this time actually absorbing some of the mac and cheesy goodness! Feel better and take care.
    • If you are worried about your glycemic levels, then you should test with a glucose meter.  I have diabetes (insulin resistance/TD2) and rice and potatoes spike me like crazy!  I might as well consume ice cream!  But if you do not have diabetes, no worries!  
    • Thanks to both of you for your replies. I wasn't so much concerned about the arsenic (although that is an additional consideration) as I was about the glycemic level. I don't bake enough to make blending my own flour blends worthwhile, so I will definitely check out the links you provided, Ennis_TX. So far I'm tolerating oats and my gastro doc says I can keep eating them as long as they're certified GT. I just looked at some crackers I have for hummus and noticed their main ingredient is rice. I should probably just eat the hummus with veggies!
    • I agree with Ennis.  It sounds like she is getting access to gluten way too often to expect healing.   I had some pretty severe patches of intestinal damage when I was diagnosed.  Anemia was my symptom and I had no gut issues then.  So, just because she injests gluten and does not have some major symptoms right away, does not mean she is not building up antibodies.  Have those antibodies been re-tested to see if they are in the normal ranges now?  Missing patches of damage in the small intestine is possible.  Heck, the small intestine is the size of a tennis court (goggle it).  So easy to miss.  Also, your GI should have taken more than four samples?  How many were taken? (Forgive me, if I have forgotten.) Cross contamination in your house is real, especially if you have kids in the house.  Member Jebby, a preemie doctor who has celiac disease, was not getting well.  Turns out her four small and adorable children were glutening her.  She made her house gluten free.  Just something to consider.   You mentioned she had access to gluten at a party.  So, does that mean she caves in and eats it?  She needs to become a stakeholder in this diet.
