Good news is I made some homemade mustard.

Bad news is all they had were a few yellow mustard seeds and a bunch of black

Good news is I was able to make enough to last me 4 yrs.

Bad news is it is very pungent.

Good news is tastes okay with honey.

Bad news is the honey won't get the yellow stains off the counter top :o

Good news is I learned baking soda is how to make it light and creamy

Bad news is the baking soda couldn't cover up too much vinegar.

Good news is cooking the jars in a big pot did just fine to seal

Good news is that I know to never use black seed again

And there you are more good news than bad news so I win!

Ain't that the truth. Maybe I should make some pancakes every time I get sad like the ihop commercial and just slather it in honey. I feel better just thinking about it.

Hey! I discovered my happy place

Thx beachbirdie.

At some point in my life I knew I had to change my thinking. I was 245lbs. And always miserable, hungry and depressed. I heard someone mention that in order to be happy in life, we needed to be less like a thermometer and more like a thermostat. A thermometer is a direct reading of the environment we are in but a thermostat senses the environment and changes it to favorable conditions. That is pretty much the best we can do.

I have grown up a lot since seventeen, the first time I was actually hospitalized. Eventually, I learned that a positive attitude turns life in your favor. I finally realized that I should Choose to be happy despite what my life is like. What is the point of having a negative mentality, just to torture yourself even more?

Without hope I would never had stumbled upon this forum and gotten myself set back on a path to self-embetterment. Everyone on here is very selfless and helpful. It is a good environment for hope. :)

Well feel free to learn from my mistakes. When you make catsup make sure if you use balsamic vinegar, that you read the FRONT label to make sure it is balsamic vinegar and not balsamic vinaigrette. Woopsy I grabbed the wrong bottle. Oh and do not shop when you are hungry or cook something newfrom scratch when you do not have an abundance of time. One more thing, if it says it takes "T" amount of time it is really T x 2 if you have not made it before.

Just thought I would mention it in case you get your butt in gear. Haha I was using voice keyboard and it exed out the last 3 letters in the word b***. Really? Get with the times doggonit. And to think they are supposed to be cutting edge. HA! Sharp as a cotton ball.

    • I have had rolling food intolerance issues and stuff crop up for years....but this time it was seemly triggered by a cold.  I got a cold this weekend standard fever, stuffy nose, coughing gunk up, head pressure, random dizzy spells etc. Anyway I was eating on my chia seed rotation before getting it just fine...but about halfway into my cold I started having vomiting issues after eating. I assumed this was the cold perhaps it was instead a flu. But I got over it now with just a bit of congestion and sore throat left BUT I noticed a pattern in my food diary and confirmed it yesterday...within 30-60mins of eating anything with chia seeds I am puking ....... it seems I got a new intolerance to them? I found this odd that it was seemly triggered by the cold. I guess it could have happened with the compromised system and fever. Has anyone else had a new food intolerance crop up after a cold?
    • Thinking I saw this earlier on another post....anyway I do have a thought on this. I get little blood blisters and sores in my mouth, and on my tongue from things I ended with allergies to. With celiac being a autoimmune disease it can sometimes effect your immune system, like make you more prone to random food allergies, histamine issues, food intolerance issues, and sensitivities. You might want to keep a food diary and mix up what you eating avoiding foods you have been eating for up to a week changing out sauces, oils, spices completely and see if you notice anything. If I eat anything with corn I get blood blisters in my mouth by example, a high PH food like if I use a undiluted vinegar on something had in the past giving me little sores...not had this happen in awhile. In the food diary keep track of the sores, body temperature, stool habits, how you feel, etc. Every little detail and see if you find some connection with foods you eat. Try a lower histamine diet perhaps if it is related to that.
    • Hi been diagnosed as celiac over 2 years ago have a bad episode at present with tongue and swollen sore nose looks like little blisters has anyone else had these symptoms and if so what made it stop please any advise would be fab 
    • As mentioned above is true, I used to love fruit I got other AI diseases and some other issues that prevent me from eating fruit but I am a freak lol. ANYWAY since your new I will link you the newbie 101 threads. I would be more concerned with hidden gluten in your old condiment filled with crumbs, your pasta strainer, cutting boards and and scratched pots in your house then say the banana you got at the store....peeled off the outside that might have been touched or handled by anything else and eaten the safe clean insides lol....banana come with their own wrapper perhaps the safest bet, funny they used to give celiac babies a mostly banana diet before they understood this disease well.

    • Some people can be asymptomatic, I know a few celiacs like this. Needless to say, this doesn't mean that gluten isn't still wreaking havoc in your intestines.
