Its Heating Up!

5 posts in this topic

I am trying to make a list for my first gluten-free grocery shopping experience and all I can think of is, "Dang, I have to cook in this heat?" :(

I want to eat as much naturally gluten-free food as possible, and things that will help me begin to heal my body. What do you like to eat when the weather heats up??

Anything grilled. I will grill veggies and meats...fruit if I can find peaches.

I grill a lot of meat then chop for a salad. I hate salads in the winter, love them in the summer. I like wilted salads - grill veggies and meats and make a hot dressing (mmmm bacon grease rules) then toss with salad greens.

Fajitas or skirt steak with cold sauces like chimichurri.

I'll break out the crock pot because it's less hot than the oven.

Egg salad. Yum.

Shrimp and rice salad.

Cold fruit salads - mixed melons. Yogurt and stone fruit and honey and almonds....

Figs. Figs. Figs. Fresh figs. Figs and bacon. Figs and goat cheese.

87 degrees F here today, omg! A few days ago there were freeze warnings in the overnight hours. It's crazy. And I don't have my a/c in the window yet, I don't usually get it put in until the end of May.

I knew it was going to heat up, so I did a bit of cooking over the last couple of days, making some flat bread, boiled a few eggs and last night I cooked a bunch of peeled red potatoes in my pressure cooker. It was the first time I've used it for that, and they cooked perfectly in 12 minutes -- I'm always using the pressure cooker for potato salad in the future.

So today's menu was / will be (going to prepare dinner in a few minutes...)

Maple buckwheat flakes cereal for breakfast, celery with peanut butter for a snack, then some potato salad because I was still hungry. I guess it was more a late lunch than a snack.

Dinner will be a turkey & tomato sammich. Dessert will be a couple of Pamela's ginger snap cookies.

This will be my first summer gluten-free, so I'll take notes from y'all for more good ideas!

Cold sesame noodles!

Cook rice pasta (spaghetti-style), rinse in cold water, and set aside.


Mix 4T peanut butter with 4T of sesame oil.


2T minced garlic

4T sliced scallions (or use onion and garlic powder to taste)

6 teaspoons of sugar

1/2 c white or rice vinegar

up to 1 c gluten-free soy sauce (I think 1 c is too much, I like my sauce thicker)

Top a plateful of noodles with scrambled egg, strips of chicken or turkey, and strips of cucumber, pour on some of the sauce. Hot sauce optional.

But you can throw any leftover veggies or meat in with this sauce, it's versatile. And the only cooking is the noodles.

    • I was noticeably gray at 18. Both of my parents went gray young as well. I have no thyroid problems and I'm pretty sure my celiac issues didn't start until 20 years later....   I started dying it when I was 28. I wanted to look more professional!
    • Celiac disease is not diagnosed by symptoms alone. Why?  There are over 300 of them and many, if not all, overlap with other autoimmune issues or other illnesses.  Learn more about proper testing: http://www.cureceliacdisease.org/screening/ I am formally diagnosed.  My hubby is not.  His mis-informed doctors told him 16 years  ago to give up gluten.  It worked, but now we do not really know if he has celiac disease or not.  He will be the first to say that I get WAY more support from family, friends and medical.   I am sorry at your doctor gave you the wrong advice.  Now, you must decide if testing is worth pursuing.  I wish you well.  
    • I am considering having my brother - who inherited Daddy's power woodworking tools - plane down my cutting boards and sand the edges enough so I can keep them. The spoons and soup stirring things though will have to be decorative. Breaks my heart. I've had good luck with Merle Norman cosmetics. They have a listing of things that are gluten-free that has helped me. My local store owner was able to get the list and knows what I can use and what I can't.
    • While you could very well be vitamin/mineral deficient, you could also have issues with your thyroid.  Autoimmune thyroid is common with .......autoimmune celiac disease.  Your doctor should order a full thyroid panel, including thyroid antibodies.   Your blood sugar should also be checked (autoimmune diabetes).  I am not saying you have these issues, but these AI issues are common with celiac disease.  In fact, you can develop or have more than one AI issue.   If I feel a very strong need to nap, I know my thyroid is off and my doctor should be notified.  A simple blood test usually verifies that an adjustment to my thyroid replacement is needed.   That said, you are in the healing stages of celiac disease.   Eat healthy and include plenty of fats to keep you satiated.  Try to avoid processed foods.  Make sure that gluten-free diet is varied and full of veggies.  Get plenty of rest.  Just listen to your body.  Soon you will feel much better.  
    • Hi and welcome Can you tell us a little about your diet? What are you eating on a typical day? You may find that some simple switches in food choices can deliver more energy and fewer spikes and crashes. This is something that receives too little attention, particularly from the medical community. It can come as a huge shock to the system and as the implications become apparent its easy to feel overwhelmed. This certainly happened to me and many others here so first do know that you're not alone. You are currently grieving believe it or not and you will be going through the stages of grief.  Second, although it may not feel it now, it WILL get better and you will adjust and adapt as you get used to the diet and start focusing on what you can still do rather than what you can't.  In the meantime, this is a good place to vent and share those feelings as they are perfectly natural and understandable and whilst not always helpful,  they are a part of you and a part of the healing process. Go easy on yourself, this is very early days. You are young, which is good news, it means you will heal sooner and you will adapt quicker and there's lots of good things on the way for you as your body gets a rest from the gluten that's been holding you back.  All the best!
