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.

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!

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

    • Apologies for my over-reaction.  As the shampoo exposure was only for a couple week or so, I doubt any lab tests would have indicated exposure. Unfortunately, since I didn't have the antibodies, I can only rely on my symptoms to tell me if I've been exposed. I'm fortunate enough that eliminating gluten (and dairy) from my diet completely fixed my problems. I have had no lingering systems, and now that I have been gluten free for a while, when I do get gluten I have a very clear reaction (and a distinct reaction to dairy) that follows a fairly predictable timeline. This has accidentally been tested a couple of times. For example, early on before I was better at reading labels I grabbed some cookies at the grocery store that I thought were gluten free (the company produces both a normal and gluten-free version, and this was before I learned to avoid shared facilities). I had grabbed the wrong bag but I didn't figure it out until about a week of feeling crappy had passed and I went searching for a culprit. Things like this have happened a couple of times, where I accidentally did a blinded experiment on myself. The symptoms are consistent, and resolve once I remove the offending item. So when I recognized my symptoms as the result of gluten, I went looking for a culprit and I found the shampoo and conditioner. I removed them and then I got better.  My problems are largely systemic. I wouldn't be surprised if I don't actually have celiac but some other immune mediated reaction that hasn't been defined, but calling it celiac is the best way to get people to take my needs seriously (which I'm sure you understand). Unfortunately, my problems don't seem to fit into any particular diagnostic bucket, so I've learned not to rely on the official medical terms and just go with what works. I'm lucky to have had doctors who think the same way, else they might have told me that I didn't need to go gluten free once I failed to show clear-cut celiac. Maybe I'm pre-celiac, maybe it's the much maligned NCGS, or it's all related to leaky gut (I am eagerly awaiting the FDA approval of larazotide so that I can get a doctor to give me some, I think it might do me a lot of good). All I know is that when I went gluten and dairy free it literally changed my life.  In general it seems that gluten exposure causes a generalized inflammatory response. I get some inflammation in my gut that manifests as reflux, acid indigestion (what I call "fake hunger"), and a little bit of urgency and unpredictability with regards to bathroom needs, but if that were the only problem, I think I could live with it. I also get headaches, brain fog, my depression/anxiety gets triggered to a scary degree, arthritis, muscle aches, and then, the clincher, muscles spasms in my upper back and neck that have been known to lay me out for a couple of days while I wait for the muscle relaxants to help me heal. The muscle spasms, arthritis and brain fog are the most recognizable and are usually what cue me in that I got glutened, especially the spasms.  Again, sorry for being oversensitive. I should have known better, since this is such a supportive community.  
    • I appreciate your point. However, constancy of my celiac symptoms indicates that I have had the disease for at least three years - while I have never experienced any food allergies in that time. Although I will keep an eye on any emerging allergies, I believe my current fatigue is due to nutritional deficiency, because the only exogenous change in my life style has been the transition to gluten free diet.   Yes, I certainly need to keep a food diary. Thanks again for the advice.
    • In many cases no.....I consume heavy magnesium foods like pumpkin seeds, cocoa nibs etc....and still need 2-3x the dose of magnesium recommendations. Going on more of what poster boy said. You dose magnesium to tolerance with citrate like Natural Vitality Calm you start off small partial doses and slow ramp up....it can hit you hard causing gas and D if you go to quick into it. You dose citrate to tolerance meaning you slowly up your dose til you get loose stools...then back down a bit. You should have vivid dreams with a good dosing....also if it becomes to harsh or you can not handle citrate there is Doctors Best Glycinate...it does not have the gut effects at all...but the dreams and how much it makes you relax is more more felt.   ...with this disease you can have a food intolerance or allergy crop up out of the blue....like no where. You have a autoimmune disease....celiac it effects your immune system and can make it really wonky. Like it seems to always be on guard like a sleep deprived sentry on stim packs...jumps at everything and shoots it. If you get sick, eat something odd or harsh you system might red flag it as a issue for awhile and go bonkers....keep a food diary and try a food rotation in the mean time...OH as a example to this, I was fine with chia seeds last week...I got a cold over the weekend....same bag, same brand same way....withing 30mins I now puke if I eat them...new intolerance.....I also am finding jalapenos/paprika making it sleepy tired....so I am removing them both for a few months from my diet and changing to other sources for fats/fiber and vitamin A/C til I get over that issue.....these things just happen. https://www.mindbodygreen.com/articles/are-food-sensitivities-for-life
    • Hi Isabel, Your body needs nutrients to grow.  Nutrients not absorbed well when we have celiac disease damage in our guts.   But, if you do a good job of avoiding gluten, the gut damage should heal and you will be able to absorb nutrients again. The thing to remember is celiac disease is an immune system reaction.  Immune reactions are very sensitive and just a tiny amount of gluten can get them going.   And they can last for months.  So it;s very important to avoid all gluten all the time, to keep the immune reaction down.  Keeping the immune reaction down keeps the damage down, and the healing can keep up. You may start to grow more if you can absorb nutrients better.  Some extra vitamin pills might be a good idea.  Your doctor should know.  
    • Thank you Gail for your response. Of course one should be mindful of the possibility of food allergies but I don't think that's the case with my current situations. Save for gluten containing product, everything I eat now I used to eat before with no reaction whatsoever. I think my issue is more likely to be deficiency in minerals and such.
