I am horrible about having at least one night where I have no idea what we are eating for dinner. Those nights the hubby stops by publix because their rotisserie chicken is gluten-free and in a dedicated oven. What do you guys do? I could use last minute ideas with kids in sports!

I keep a bag of frozen shrimp in the freezer. I put a little olive oil and seasoning on them and either make them on the grill or George foreman. Usually I serve with rice pilaf. I also try to keep chicken tenderloins in the freezer because you can cook them with thawing. Omelets for dinner are also a quick meal when crunched for time.

I keep some good frozen shrimp in the freezer. That way all you need is an avocado to make a shrimp-stuffed avocado on a bed of salad, and take a baguette of Against The Grain out of the freezer (I like it toasted - either as bruschetta or just the little toasts hot with butter). Drool.....

Nearly all of my previous go-to meals are now out of bounds :(

My go to is actually to send my husband to Costco for a chicken. Hahaha! In a true emergency where neither of us want to leave the house I'll usually just throw together some pasta, sauce and frozen meatballs. I use the Farmrich ones which are gluten free because I'm far too lazy to make my own.

Nachos (if I have chips) or quesadillas (always have corn tortillas and refried beans and cheese).

Bean patties - mash one can drained/rinsed beans, add some bread crumbs, an egg, and seasoning. Shape into patties and pan fry. I like it b/c I typically have all the ingredients here. Also chicken curry soup - I keep a chicken breast in the freezer and the other stuff in the pantry.

My go-to easy meal is breakfast for supper. Bacon, eggs or an omelet...or a bowl of cereal.

I'd have to say breakfast for supper too. I make pancakes with either bacon or sausage. I always have Gluten Free Pantry Pancake mIx in the pantry.

Since breakfast is already used.... I would say spagetti (corn noodles are my favorite). I too frequently get into a dinner pinch, so when I make my meat sauce I double it and freeze half. That way next time I can just cook the noodles and thaw the sauce. I do the same thing with Sloppy Joe meat.

I like to peel and dice a whole bag of potatoes and then I have them ready for homefries all week. But for when I have absolutely nothing planned- depends how much time I have. If I'm short on time it's sunnyside eggs with toast, if I have more time probably pasta with meat sauce or chicken sausage.

tacos -

I always keep shells, tortilla chips and salsa in the pantry

we normally have shredded cheese and usually lettuce in the fridge

Whenever I cook taco meat I make double and freeze the other half in a plastic baggie. Then I just thaw and heat - in the microwave if in a hurry.

Another thing I like to do is a skillet dinner. Cook a chopped onion in olive oil till soft and add diced potatoes. When they are almost done, add chopped leftover meat, breakfast sausage, whatever you have on hand or need to use up, and a chopped apple... Let that all brown together for a few minutes. You can top with shredded cheddar right before serving, if you like.

With this, I usually just make frozen veggies in the microwave. Mashed winter squash goes really well with it.

    • No anti-sm(lupus)? Yes, anti dsDNA is for SLE(lupus). No ENA panel,anti-RNP, anti-SS-A, anti-SS-B, anti histone, scl-70, etc? I'd ask for a referral, if you feel that there is something going on. I think that would be a logical step because of the positive ANA and lack of investigation. 1:640 is definitely positive. 
    • My MCH is always high too. Have some other oddities but doc always say labs are great as well. I dont think they ever really bother with the MCH. I'm also in testing and showed negative on the same ones you did. My IGA is fine though. As far as the other tests, maybe your girls GI can order or you could try your primary. 
    • Hi there!   I follow a low histamine diet that Cycling Lady brought to my attention a long time ago.  Citrus fruits and their juices are histamine releasing foods.  High histamine levels can cause hives just like in an allergic reaction.  Here's a helpful site:   https://www.histamineintolerance.org.uk/about/the-food-diary/the-food-list/ I don't drink orange juice because because of the hives and stomach upset I get from it, and also because I'm type two diabetic and my system can't handle all the sugars in it.  High glucose contributes to inflammation. I also avoid things with added flavors and scents because they often contain sulfur components like sulfites or sulfates.  Corn products are often processed with sulfuric acid.  Some Celiacs, like me, develop a sulfite sensitivity.  Here's a helpful site:  http://www.thepatientceliac.com/tag/celiac-disease-and-sulfite-intolerance/ Garlic and onions are high in sulfites.  People who can't tolerate foods high in sulfites are often deficient in a trace mineral, molybdenum.  Molybdenum is also involved in blood production.  Here's another site:  http://www.whfoods.com/genpage.php?tname=nutrient&dbid=128 So, there's not always a simple answer.  I'm leary of processed foods because you don't really know how they're processed and what really goes into them.  I'd rather stick to fresh foods.  Hope this helps.
    • No, no, no!  Don't cut yourself off from your friends and social life because you feel you can't eat what everyone else is eating!  I can't think of a single bar or restaurant I've been to where I haven't found something to eat.  It may not always be what I would like to order/eat, but I'm not sitting without food while everyone else is eating!  If I'm going to a private party or someone's home where I'm concerned about food selection, I bring my own, tell the hostess and without making a big deal of it, eat what I brought.  Other times I eat a bit before I go, snack on the veggies or other obviously safe food,  and eat when I get home. If I go shopping for the day or somewhere that it's difficult to pick up a quick gluten-free snack, I put a piece of fruit or a gluten-free granola bar in my purse in case I get hungry.   It's only a big deal if you make it one.  I have been gluten-free for 7 years.  My attitude about food is now this:  eating out is strictly a social event. I always find something to order though at times it seems the gluten-free selections are kind of bland, but I won't go hungry.  If I want a good, tasty meal, I make it for myself at home.  There is nothing that I can't duplicate in my kitchen in a gluten-free version.   It's only been a couple of months for you so I'm hoping you will gradually see that this becomes such a way of life that you won't even give it a second thought.  Your meal prep will take less time as you grow accustomed to this--any new diet takes time to learn.  Good luck and hang in there!
