yummsss - actual measurements (just for the first time lolz!)  i will google around if yours is in your head  ;)  many of my recipes are not written down anywhere.  my friends call me 'the swedish chef' <like the muppet)  because when i cook, i just throw stuff in a pot with seemingly no rhyme or reason.  and i never give them my recipes because they are too lazy to write them down hahaha  :lol:

I had no idea what you guys were talking about. I had heard of welsh rarebit before but had no clue what it was so I googled it. Alton Brown has a recipe for it. You know... if you're going to go out looking on teh interwebz for a recipe. It sounds delicious!

Actually, Alton's is similar to what I use. Google Jamie Oliver's. His is sublime! In fact, that is what I am making today for lunch.

Mom's can be weird. Mine definitely had some, uh, unique ideas about cooking. But omg did she ever make a killer mac & cheese! Which, if she found out I was eating a single serve microwave kind from a box for lunch today she'd disown me. :ph34r:

 

I had a peanut butter and strawberry jelly sandwich. :wub:

 

Kinda jealous, I really miss strawberries. I love them lots but they don't love me back.

It was homemade as well... just strawberries, sugar, and the stuff to make the jelly. I recently (as of the last few months) got it back.

Every time I read "sandwich" or "bread" or "mac 'n cheese," I freak out a little bit. lol. Then, I remember that we ARE talking gluten-free. Must be my newbie status to gluten intolerance.

 

I went simple and quick with tuna fish with mayo and Almond Nut Thins. Now I wish I'd had a sandwich, instead. *sigh*

Although it is -20 outside, I craved a smoothie. So, I made a strawberry, banana and peach one - so thick it was akin to soft ice cream.

    • Thanks so much, Whitepaw.  I'm very interested to see what you are eating as my diet is becoming rather dull! I'm just beginning to try tapering the omeprazole as it really disagrees with me and I've been taking it for three weeks so far.  So today I haven't taken any but intend to take some tomorrow and the next day (doing maybe do two days of ompremazole, then one day without it for a while) and see how I go. So far not bad, but my whole GI tract just feels slightly out of sorts. Windy, the odd pain in all sorts of places.  It hurts to bend over too.  I haven't had my main meal yet and am rather dreading it - same old chicken casserole!  Yesterday I did have pasta and some bolognese and didn't feel good although no burning pain.   I continue to lose weight but I'm hoping it is OK as I just can't face the sort of food I normally eat which I have to be truthful contains more fat and sugar than is good for me. If anyone else is still following this, can you tell me if, when comes off a ppi, one has to eat carefully for a while.  Also,  is it normal to feel slightly uncomfortable for a while after coming off these meds? Thanks!  
    • People with fibromyalgia often experience symptoms similar to those seen in patients with gluten-related disorders. Could these patients have some kind of hidden gluten sensitivity? Could a gluten-free diet offer improvement in their condition? Is a gluten-free diet better than hypocaloric diet for these patients? A team of researchers recently set out to evaluate the effects of a gluten-free diet (GFD) compared with a hypocaloric diet (HCD) in a group of fibromyalgia patients. View the full article
    • I have been dealing with pain for thirty some years.  I have been diagnosed with RA (sed rate high) due to joint inflammation and nodules, OA due to xray, mri results, fibromyalgia at one point because they didn't want to tell me it was all in my head and, I have nodules on my thyroid.  Other than my sed rate being high, my blood work comes back "normal" so, other than the Methotrexate for RA, I am on no meds for pain.  I take Ibuprofen when needed.  I do not take "pain meds" because I have a low tolerance to medication and I just cant function even if I take 800mg of Ibuprofen.  Example . .. I get a cold and take children's cold medicine.  I take 1/2 the dose of a six year old and it knocks me out.  Some days the pain is so bad, I can barely walk.  My husband bought me a hot tub a few years back for my birthday and it is my go to on bad days.   I was tested for Celiac's and came back okay.  The only other blood work that comes back out of whack are MCHC, low . . . MCH, low . . . RDW, high, . . . ESR, anywhere from 20 to 85 but normally around 40ish . . . TSH, 2.0 or below.  But, the doctors say the first three are not so far out of range that we should worry about it, the ESR just means there is inflammation and the TSH is within normal range.  I have recently gone gluten, dairy, and sugar free in an effort to combat symptoms, pain and weight.  I have noticed a difference in the inflammation and in my general overall wellbeing.  I seem to be more attentive, have more energy, and not is no much pain.  My questions are:  Does anyone else have similar issues while all blood work is coming back normal?  And, any suggestions on how to introduce items back into my diet to test for reactions?  Should I start with gluten or dairy?  The sugar I can live without.  Any info would be helpful.  I look things up on the internet but end up with a bunch of pop up ads for things that are going to cure me.  Thanks in advance.  
    • There is nothing you can really do about the high antibodies.  If it is any consolation, mine have been as high.    Your TSH is too high.  The acceptable range now is around 1 to 3.  You might benefit by increasing your thyroid replacement (or starting) if you are not taking it now.  I feel best when my TSH is closer to a 1.  
    • Do you have a dental school anywhere close?  Even a couple of hour drive might be worth looking into.  See if you can talk to one of the clinical supervisors/dentists.  This would be a case they would like. Or just show up to an Emergency room at a big hospital - if its serious, they can't turn you away.  Because that is what will happen eventually.   Edit - Call up Texas A & M school of dentistry and get your butt up to Dallas!
