Ewww, the brownies were horrible.

I made them from the El Peto mix. Any recommendations for a better brownie mix?

Have you tried the Betty Crocker gluten-free brownie mix? I really like it and even gluten eaters like it, too (like my son, who does not have celiac).

I agree the Betty Crocker gluten free brownie mix is really good. Unfortunately I had to stop using it when I when soy free.

How about Pamela's? I don't know what it contains though. I know the King Arthur gluten-free brownie mix doesn't have soy.

We are going over to my mom's house tonight and we are making chicken parm (the chicken is breaded with almond flour and we are using homemade sauce), salad and Annie Chun's pad thai noodles as the pasta.

For dessert I am trying Pamela's vanilla cake mix and I am making a peanut butter cream cheese frosting.

I had a 2 or 3 week old cabbage in the frig and decided today was the day, I had to cook that head of cabbagge! (I am a master procrastinator.) I finally dedcided on Hungarian cabbage casserole after persuing several recipes online and reading all the reviews. I added sauteed ground chicken, ground sirloin and ground Italian sausage so that it could be a lunch for several days. We need our protein!

It was good, but wasn't done until about 30 minutes after DP's charcoal grilled chicken was done. Happily, I called my neighbor and asked if she was up for another wierd lunch for work tomorrow. She's a good sport and said "Bring it on". She was actually very happy about it. At the end of the day, I'm happy, doubly so because I made dear neighbor happy. (I told her it wasn't especially good, but included all food groups except fruit. So I took her a pear too. I'm pretty sure she'll love the pear. :D

Spanish rice made with brown rice. It smells good! I just hope that my daughter will eat it. She doesn't really like brown rice. But she is on the South Beach diet so white rice is out. Also a side of zesty salsa refried beans.

I made ground chicken Hawaiain meatballs adapted from Pioner Woman's blog for Meatballs with Pineapple and Peppers.

My breadcrumbs were Udi's sandwich bread that has been in the freezer for over a year, whirled them up in my mini food procesor. I followed the :D rest of the recipe pretty closely. I stuck a piece of parchment paper on the cookie sheet before freezing those little balls. (They were prone to stick. Anyway, they came out great! :D

Hope everybody will wear purple this Friday, it's for Lupus awareness. I'll be sporting purple. I

    • Hi! I was officially diagnosed a couple of months ago now but I have been gluten free for about 4 months since my endoscopy. However, in the last month I have noticed some worrying post diagnosis and treatment symptoms. My appetite has shrunk enormously. I used to be able to eat bowls and bowls of food and still be hungry, I could consume food even when full and I was constantly snacking. I understand over eating is a big part of celiac disease before going on a gluten free diet but food is such a huge part of my lifestyle. This last month I feel as though I have lost myself a bit as huge parts of my character like my love for food, huge appetite and my non fussy nature have all been turned upside down. I could easily not eat any snacks in a day now and not have to have all my meals. I thought I might have lost weight so I weighed myself on the same scales I did a couple of months ago. I am a young tall girl and was 10 stone for the last year at least. In the last few weeks I have lost half a stone which is 7 pounds and am now 9.5 stone. This is not intentional and I did not aim or want this to happen so I am concerned about any continued lack of appetite and weight loss in relation to my health. Therefore, I am going to weigh myself each week and make sure I am eating all three meals. If it continues I'll visit the doctor. Also, I am noticing fatigue still which was a huge part of my pre diagnosis symptoms. I get to a certain point in the afternoon where I feel like I need to go home and rest because I can no longer continue. I have no stamina and it is restricting my freedom, which I feel has already been taken from me as a result of this diagnosis that came at a frustrating point in my life which was a huge nuisance. Finally, I am also finding it a bit of a struggle to get my head around the whole thing still and to understand what it means for me and my life. I am very worried and scared that it will impact me not just physically but mentally and socially and it scares me. I guess this was more me getting all this off my chest and into the open, if anyone has any advice or feedback I will be hugely grateful.
    • I've lost 3-4 pounds.   It surprises me, as I would have expected to lose more, considering how limited my diet has been,  how sick I was since early May, and now walking 35 to 45 min. after dinner.   I think it's the increased gluten-free bread and shortbread cookies.  I've eaten more of these as they settle my stomach and are safe when I'm not sure what else will work.   I think I may also be having more sodium, so there may be a bit of water weight. I am actually doing better.   I've been on Famotidine 20 mg., 2x daily for about 9 days, and added Vit D a few days ago.   I've been able to drop one of 4-5 stacked pillows at night, and will try dropping one more tonight.   I am down to Tums (1500 mg.)  around 3-4 a.m. for mild heartburn / upset stomach, and again when I get up.   Not much else, maybe occasional simethicone.     i tried returning to a salad at dinner, just lettuce, tomato, and onions, but seemed to have more trouble overnight, so quit.  I'm mostly eating an egg with toast, well cooked sweet potatoes/mixed veggies, tuna, some salmon, hamburger, chicken, Ian's fish sticks, bone broth, Schar's breadsticks and shortbread, some soy milk or macadamia milk, and the bakery gluten-free bread.  
    • Ebetta posted this 6 years ago ... not sure she/he will respond
    • Welp, according to the lady at the gastro's office, my tests were all "fine" and I don't have cancer or celiac. I asked for a copy of the report so hopefully that will happen. I guess I will follow up with my family practice doctor and see what they think I should do next, but I am not going to go back on gluten again. My eye doctor is concerned about an inflammatory condition in my retinas, that is rapidly advancing over the last year and thinks that anything I can do to decrease inflammation should be done. So to me, that means sticking with gluten free and lots of vegetables, especially the leafy greens. Also need to figure out why my liver enzymes are elevated. This is the third time in the last 9 years according to my old labs. I've gone over all my supplements and my one medication (compounded thyroid) to make sure they are all gluten-free. My plan is to live like I have celiac disease from here on out. My only dilemma is what to give people as a reason why I can't eat the food they make for me. For now, "Gluten makes me deathly ill" is going to have to be good enough. thank you all for the help and advice! I've found a wealth of information here and am currently reading Dr. Fassano's book and a couple of different threads on this forum that are incredibly helpful.
    • Hello ebetta! Can you tell me have you found any other or even better drugs to help you with gastroparesis?
