I finally converted an old recipe to gluten free and every one loved it.

 

I have been doing this classic recipe gluten-free for a couple of years, now...everybody loves it so much that they insist on having it now for Christmas dinner, in place of the mashed potatoes. I do it in the slow cooker, on low for about eight hours -- this frees up space in my challengingly-sized oven.....and no more potatoes to stand and peel. It's all good!  :)

 

HAPPY NEW YEAR, PSILLIES!!!

Well Superman & I are officially old farts. We were in bed by 9:30 & Rob fell asleep immediately). He worked a 14 hour day (what a difference a year makes). I could hear fireworks but every time I went to watch them they stopped. I only made it to 11:35 before I fell asleep.

HAPPY & HEALTHY NEW YEAR TO MY WONDERFULLY PSILLIE PHAMILY!!!!

Now there is a emoticon I would love....a dragon carrying a ketchup bottle -- Brilliant!

 

So the fun around here today is....the above ground pool which is my safe haven had a lovely sparkling salt water generated shine when I left on a three day trip with the hubs...the filter pump is on a timer, but somehow the salt water chlorine generator turned off while I was gone -- of course this was during 100 degree heat so I came home to a beautiful, natural looking algae bloomed pond :(

 

Nearly empty...am waiting for the last inch of water to be sucked out by the smaller pump that looks like it should have been retired from the tool corral a very long time ago -- yet surprisingly it is still sucking away.

 

Tonight, sparkling water -- next month and for the next year we will be penalized from the city for actually using water -- we have reduced and reduced until there is barely anything green in my yard and just last month they said possible mandatory reductions -- huh??? guess the boys will have to "go" outside ;)

    • Celiac disease can be dormant for years til a strain/stress to the immune system makes it come out. Many of us have had this issues, your infection run in might have triggered the dormant genes for the disease if you had them. I would follow up with the testing, see about getting a full celiac blood panel if you can, you have to be eating gluten for 12 weeks daily prior to testing. http://www.cureceliacdisease.org/screening/

        If not celiac it could be another food intolerance/sensitivity I suggest keeping a food diary and tracking what you eat, seasonings, how it is cooked etc. And how you feel later. Change up our diet more and look for patterns.  Here is stuff to read up on. https://www.mindbodygreen.com/articles/are-food-sensitivities-for-life
    • Yeah , i will look into getting tested - like you say there is no harm in it . What I found very interesting is the part where you say "Later I got pains in the stomach, usually a dull ache although I could get a fierce stabbing pain there too. When I went gluten free those pains stopped. as did my chronic sciatic backache which Ive subsequently realised was probably due to inflamed tissues pressing on nerves." - I also started to get chronic sciatic nerve pain on the right side over a similar time period and am wondering if its the same kind of thing. If I could solve both those things it would be life changing for me
    • Hi ,  i was thinking that an intolerance and allergy were about the same thing really but sorry if im wrong. I know celiac is an autoimmune disease but was thinking that is different again, more serious and was erring on the side of my possible issue not being that but more of the intolerance type. Clearly im just guessing though and dont know about this stuff , hence the posting for advice, The problem with trying to get tested is that in bolivia there are very limited tests and doctors are unreliable so you have to rely on yourself to certain degree. I have heard of a test here and was planning on looking into that but it made sense to try to get some opinions and advice online first so Im in a better position to understand if any tests here are actually reliable enough. I dont think there is an issue with travel parasites etc as I have already taken the medications thats would kill them like a course of albendazol and praziquantel and that was after a 2 week anti parasite cleanse. That did feel like it got rid of anything and the only issue I have been left with is this pain as described.
    • Karen's point about parasites etc is a good one. They can cause a lot of symptoms similar to celiac /ncgs as you probably know.  At 11 I had my appendix removed following pain in the lower right side of my torso. On waking up the surgeon told me that it was actually ok, when I asked what caused the pain I think they said it was probably glandular - they didn't know. Later I got pains in the stomach, usually a dull ache although I could get a fierce stabbing pain there too. When I went gluten free those pains stopped. as did my chronic sciatic backache which Ive subsequently realised was probably due to inflammed tissues pressing on nerves. I would ask the Bolivian doctors if they can get any celiac blood testing done. The standard ttg may not be beyond their labs. can't hurt to ask? Give your diet my guess is you've had a lot of gluten for a long time. If its an issue for you expect a bumpy ride when removing it.  Best of luck!  
    • You can supplement if you want to.  IF you are low on iron or vitamin D - then some vitamins might be helpful.   The treatment for Celiac disease is a strict gluten free diet.  Some people need to cut out lactose for a few months, too.  The villi that are damaged in Celiac are the part that helps you digest lactose.  So, until they are healed, it might help to skip milk , cream, etc.     http://www.cureceliacdisease.org/faq/are-there-vitamins-created-specifically-for-nutrient-deficiencies-in-celiac-patients-2/
