LOL! Well, I found a way to make do until.......

I put the chia seeds into a sandwich ziplock, put a paper towel underneath as well as one on top & took the hammer, sat down on the kitchen floor & pounded away! LOL! It worked but I don't look forward to doing it on a regular basis.

P.S. You have to make sure all the air is out of the baggie.

What about adding warm water and letting them sit and then food processing them? That's what I did the one time I used them as an egg replacer. I since decided I do not like the gelatinous mess it makes....but soaking them first worked. If your recipe calls for liquid, you could use that liquid. They soak up a lot. :)

This place we're renting the kitchen is so small that I don't want to even bring in a food processor eatmeat. I'm just going to pick up a little coffee grinder & see what happens.

I was very happy though with how the egg yolk-less Belgian Waffles turned out though.smile.gif

Oh, well, I just thought it might work. I use one of those teeny weeny ones that are only good for chopping garlic! Hey! Maybe a mortar and pestle? haha! Let's bring back the old tools! Isn't that what they used before food processors were invented? I guess if all else fails, you know the hammer and ziplock works! Hey! I can use that to flatten some chicken breasts huh?! I've been wanting a meat pounder but maybe you just invented one for me! :)

Yup. that'll work!

You know what else a hammer is good for? You know how when you go to hem jeans one of the side seams is so thick & then you're turning it under twice which makes it a monster? Take the jeans outside to a concrete surface & use your trusty hammer to pound that super thick turned under seam into a manageable, something you can work with thickness.tongue.gif

Nutribullet

http://www.nutribullet.com/

Don't buy it here! Bed, Bath & Beyond, $80 + tax to your door. Anything over $50,

shipping is free. Don't like it? Send it back. Trust me, you will like this!

Easy to clean, rinse well & go, uses a SMALL amount of product, best gadget I

have ever owned and I have them all :)

This dumb thing has CHANGED my life! It's NOT like a blender drink, that's for

sure.

This may not sound so nice but my 350 lb daughter just went for blood work, time

to renew the birth control, or she would never go to a doctor. They always look

her up & down, hum...all the things that could be wrong?! It's what they always

think about us fatties, I just got the same treatment myself! Anyway, the blood

work: We are Paleo as much as we can, but we do cheat with rice. We eat meat like

nobody! I was so worried what these tests were going to revel! I was the one who

was gonna "get it", I do the cooking :(

PERFECT blood work, low everything, no sign of diabetes, no high cholesterol, (boy,

do we eat bacon!) her BP is low as well. The doctor asked her, "What do you eat"?

Well, my mom has been studying and she does the cooking. Rachel cannot eat gluten(no hand lotion either!)

soy, dairy, I bet there are more but these are the triggers. SO, she told this very

open-minded MD about her Nutribullet. That doc actually called her and said she

loved the thing! I KNEW she would go out & buy one. :) I even own a Vitamix,

this little bullet can grind the heck out of chia, flax & hemp! Runs circles around

the Vitamix when it come to grinding seeds. I also do millet, quinoa, among others.

Cheers! Alice

    • There was a study where they checked 2 weeks on a gluten-free diet , and antibodies were still going up .  The study wasn't about that, so I think that is why they didn't go any further.   So... looks like 2 months gluten free?  If we think that antibodies are still being made at least two weeks gluten free.... account for the fact that most people need a few weeks to actually figure out and eat gluten-free...I would say it was a bit soon to re- test antibodies.     Edit it to add- if you were tested sept 12 and ate gluten for 6 more weeks before going gluten-free - who knows how high it got.  Shame on your doctor for doing the re- test so soon and discouraging you!  
    • Your numbers should not be going up at all. You are getting gluten somewhere. Do you eat out? Have you read the Newbie 101 at the top of the coping section? That will help you to ferret out how you may be getting glutened. Do you have a gluten free household or is it a shared household? Do you read ingredient labels?
    • Thank you so much!!!! I have a severe allergy, I can not even walk through a grocery store without getting a migraine. I have always used dreft but now I know for a fact that it is safe.
    • I’m 62 and have just now been tested for Celiac.  My Titer was negative, I have zero IGa and too much IGg (16) which is an indicator of intolerance at the very least and may indicate the need for another endoscopy. He also tested for EPI (exocrine pancreatic insufficiency) which was negative.  I just had a colonoscopy/endoscopy last year as a part of being diagnosed w/ Gastroparesis. I also have (among other things which I’m not sure are as relevant) - T2 Diabetes, Hashimotos Thyroiditis (late 30’s) Chronic Kidney Stones (since age 40), Osteoporosis (way before Menopause and not well controlled), and Gallbladder disease.(was removed) I’m discovering that all those I listed may be related in some way, and related to Celiac.  I haven’t seen the gastro doc for followup since the testing (obtained results from lab) so I’m not sure what he’s going to recommend.  Here’s where it gets scary... my daughter has many of the same things. She was just diagnosed with EDS (Ehlers-Danlos Syndrome) at 32.  She was diagnosed w/Glucose intolerance at 15, had her Gallbladder removed at 20, PCOS at 22, and Gluten intolerance at 30 (no testing, just her gastro’s recommendation). She’s been diagnosed w/Gastroparesis, POTS,  MAST Cell Activation Disorder, Peripheral Neuropathy, (lost use of her bladder and has a neuro stimulator) - all in the last year.  Too much coincidence for me.  This has to be all related. I keep reading more and more studies linking all these things (like EDS and Celiac) together. My daughters  geneticist is blown away by the multiple overlapping and co-morbid conditions we have and tells us it’s not uncommon. She also says research is expanding.  Sadly, the specialist docs seem baffled and can’t even begin to address our issues, and only help to manage the symptoms - sometimes. And every “Disease/Disorder” has a “diet” or protocol, and they are all at odds with each other - very frustrating.  I guess the moral of this story is to let others know that there’s a lot more to all this than meets the eye. Don’t let anyone tell you you’re fine if you have what seem to be strange unrelated symptoms. You’re not crazy. Keep fighting for understanding and knowledge. Be an advocate for yourself, you’re loved ones,  for us all.
