Thank you Loey, that's amazing! :wub:

 

Vydor - that story is fantastic, and now I finally have a morally upright justification for my caffeine addiction. YAY! I would also add "coffee" to the survival grocery list :)

 

So... one of my hobbies is upsetting social expectations on dating websites (it started off as a joke, but I'm often considering making this into a writing project). Now, this morning I saw a loser writing this about himself:

 

"Food: The most important activity is eating. I love food. I don't date vegans, vegetarians, or people on a gluten-free diet."

 

What the effn' effe? :angry:  I wonder why you are single *facepalm*....

 

If any member of the celiac community would like to convey to this... thing... their sentiments, feel free to post your mind here.

 

I LOVE what you're doing on the web site. I also think it would be a fascinating paper to read. Since I haven't dated in 24 years I can only imagine what it must be like to find a soulmate in this day and age and on top of it to be gluten-free. I lucked out big time with DH but I'm married not dead (phew) so thank you young, brave one(s) for giving me a way to live vicariously "through the looking glass."

 

Love,

"Alice"

I think I want them as my neighbors.  I bet they'd be fun to watch all the time.

They would put hats on your chickens and give them train rides!

Right! I know that!

Can I put it down to trying to do too many things at once?

Hitchhikers Guide is one of my all tme favorites. Also Zen and the Art of Motorcycle Maintenance. And let me save the best for last. A wonderful series of books that I believe you wrote. I'm so enjoying reading them for the 2nd time!

I will be on camera this year. in the past I have been on stage, but I like being behind the lens better. We will record the whole thing over the next few days, so that opening night we can sell DVD copies. From now till Easter hectic nature of life just exploded all over the place.

As always you continue to accomplish more in a 24 hour period than anyone I know. I agree about posting a clip for your biggest fans (us psillies of course).

 

Hugs,

Loey

    • Noticing I am having D quite easy nothing bad, painful or gassy, just D or super soft stool in the mornings for the past 4 days. Food Diary suggest several culprits, my BBQ jackfruit seems to be the number one suspect, This is my BBQ cuisine week or two and I can not eat meat so I have a big wad pinch of shredded homemade BBQ Jackfruit. I have done a gluten test on it and that is not the reason but perhaps the seasonings or perhaps hte cider vinegar I put it in fermented it a bit?

      Other thoughts on culprits, I have upped my vitamin C intake to about 1500mg a day spaced out in 2 doses Vitamin C has been linked to D in many cases and is one reason why some people get D when they take a vit C supplement in conjunction with fruit.
      I have also upped my cocoa nib intake this could be a culprit also,
      I have cut back on binding seeds like flax, whole shell pumpkin, and chia which used to be a huge fiber supplement so this could be the cause of more softer stools.Next week I start back on chia seeds in my eggs and we shall see if my stools firm back up. 
      I also doubled up on probiotics as I was taking half the recommended dose prior.
      Eating a bunch more cinnamon, and cinnamon oil, but I do this on rotation so doubt it,
      My new low carb bread, I am eating 2-4 slices of this grain less bread a meal now. This could be it but this bread using coconut flour in it, and egg whites. I doubt this is the case, as coconut flour is known to absorb liquid a lot, and tends to firm up ones stool and in fact cause constipation in people if they do not consume it with a lot of liquid. I came across health concerns with other bakers when I was working on this recipe about it.
      My protein intake went up to double what it used to be 5 weeks ago, doubt this is the issue but this week, I changed it using a custom blend with MUCH less rice protein and more pea and sancha inchi. I noticed the more rice protein I consumed the worse my edema got with legs and feet swelling. Have this well under control now with no swelling,
      I considered it perhaps my extreme coffee intake but I have changed to only 2 cups of caffeinated coffee a day starting mid last month. Down from a whole pot.......so now I drink about a pot of decaf a day. I doubt this is it as it never gave me a issue with the much more likely culprit of full on caffeinated in the same amount.

      While I try to trouble shoot it I am actually slightly enjoying it. Odd as this might sound, I spent most my life with chronic constipation, and the only relieve I used to get came with a glutening and that had EXTREME pain and gas. Followed by a week or so of constipation so bad I had to take laxatives.  This....this is just a release with no pain or gas....odd and creepy but I seem to have much more energy, and I can eat and drink a lot more. >.< I think I might enjoy this ride a bit of regularity even if it is a bit off, it is a huge change from my hard stools and painful movements of years past.  I mean I have gone as far in the past as taking a entire bottle of miralax to try to go and just had gassy normal BM 24 hours later and frankly miralax makes me feel like groggy, tired, and like the blob, I am that guy that had to double the dose of everything for the scope prep and had the doctor think I cheated when I told him the first time I did it right and did not clean me out. I want to find out what is triggering this and add it to my regime for clean out or laxative treatment after a glutening next time when that C hits for a week.
    • Yeah noticing some others, black tea, gives me that film/mucus on top of my stomach while green tea, herbal/hibisicus, and coffee do not. I have recently fell in love with Rythem Kale chips, and roasted kale. Kale raw...I always get sick from. At first it was due to the waxy stuff on the ones I was getting, then I got organic washed. and still got the issue minus the floating waxy stuff in my stomach. Now if I stewed it, nuked it, or made chips out of it no issues. But with the farmer market, me baking for it, and Texas Summer preventing afternoon baking due to heat. I never had time to roast kale this summer. Now with the Rythem Kale it comes prepared in a way that doe not make me sick. Love using it crushed up in my omelettes, or using it crushed as a garnish over my miracle noodles or rice. with a pesto or butter flavored coconut oil. Considered this, I have a friend who has this with bananas and a few other fruits, they do not bother him if he cooks them, raw causes hives and swelling. Again I considered it but I no not have sores form in my mouth like I do with my corn allergy, nor do I get itchy or swelling. Still might be a slight issue I might  give it some more thought. >.> could be the fact I do not have much feeling for heat or pain in my mouth (nerve issues).  But it does sort of apply I need to do some research and see if others have this and might be limited to the vomiting and stomach mucus symptoms also. I might try eating some foods I know I have a allergy to like peaches and mango, just a tiny bit in a extract, and see if I get the same reaction, They normally just cause drainage, and sniffles, even stuff with just the flavoring or extract.
    • Hate to add more to your list but you may also want to look into Oral Allergy Syndrome. Mostly because how you describe almonds. Yes, it is another extensive list of foods for intolerance and allergies. 
    • How long were you fully gluten free for Kirsty?  
    • Hi Matt, So you say your hypoglycemia resolved going gluten free. In my case, it got worse trying to get off. Now my cortisol, progesterone and estrogens are low. The extreme stress from trying to cut it out of my diet offset my menstrual cycle. That leaves me with a lot of anxiety, blood sugar issues worsen at specific times of my cycle. So I want the doctor to stabilize me hormonally, as far as that goes while being on gluten. I agree that I’d have to fully stop eating gluten. Not just a bit. Even though I removed all gluten except 1,5 slices of bread, I still experience the above symptoms. Some of those symptoms might be because of the hormonal situation. But they always worsen after eating gluten. My appointment with a hormonwise doctor is in 10 days. Seems such a short time, but hate waiting. Kirsty
