  1. I feel every bit as miserable, frustrated, tired etc. about all this as you. I won't whine here since I do plenty of that here and there from time to time. Since going gluten-free 5 yrs ago I have been dx with adult onset type 1 diabetes and 26 food allergies. Yes, I totally get that everything...
  2. Interesting! I'll have to keep an eye on symtoms when I try to reintroduce it, but I am wondering how much gluten would be left by the time it ends up as oil or lecitin. Seeds, you'd think they'd wash and that'd remove a lot. Hmmm. Most of my symptoms with foods have been allergy symtoms and different...
  3. You are not alone. I recently dropped sunflower after suspected reactions to a salad dressing with the oil in it and Earthbalance spread which has the lecitin. I felt much better! I'm pretty confident thst it was the sunflower because I have SO many allergies and eat VERY simple foods, with no ingrediemts...
  4. I have found that I have MANY food allergies/intolerances that have nothing directly to do with gluten, except that a damaged GI tract may be causing my gut to be "leaky". The vast majority of my food allergies cause GI symptoms. I recommend that you get allergy tested. Find an allergist who recommends...
  5. If you have IR, then rice could definitely be very problematic for blood sugar. Are you on any meds for the IR? Even with meds, blood sugar could still be too high. If you haven't been evaluated for diabetes you should be. There is a connection with PCOS and diabetes. Any one time blood sugar number...
  6. Fatigue after eating rice or rice based breads, crackers etc. can be a sign of impaired glucose tolerance aka blood sugar problems. Rice is very easily and quickly converted to glucose and brings blood sugar up quickly. Elevated blood sugar can cause fatigue.
  7. For me: this minus the potatoes http://www.befreeforme.com/ViewRecipe.aspx?RecipeID=582 and some pine nuts sprinkled on top before serving and maybe some kalamata olives on the side, red wine to drink for kiddo: homemade easy chicken and rice soup-homemade broth from the freezer(from the Thanksgiving...
  8. Me:shrimp, zucchini, yellow squash, onion, okra sautee with oregano, garlic powder, salt and parsley for the seasoning Kiddo:homemade meatballs using this recipe(made a batch last weekend and froze in individual portions) http://mennonitegirlscancook.blogspot.com/2009/10/meatballs-in-spaghetti...
  9. True IMHO. Some people get hives with the allergies we have, but my son and I seem hard wired for nasal symptoms and GI symptoms for me and eczema for him. Multiple triggers for each kind of symptom for us.
  10. Allergy testing might be helpful. Choose an allergist who is more knowledgeable about food allergies, some standard allergists can be dismissive. I found that with the 20 some food allergies that I tested positive to, a large percentage of them caused me GI problems when I tried re-introducing...
  11. I made creamed chicken and biscuits with the Bisquick mix today too, for my family. I baked the biscuits in the oven and served the creamed chicken on top. Put 2 frozen chicken breasts in the crockpot, added frozen veggies, a few frozen pearl onions and cream of chicken soup base, and a little chicken...
  12. last night: Me: bunless burger patty w/goats' milk cheese steamed green beans sauerkraut sauteed red onion Kiddo:bunless burger patty w/cow's milk cheese green beans cukes Ore-Ida hashbrown patty tonight: Me: bunless burger patty w/ goat's milk cheese...
  13. Good luck to you with the meat! I had to train myself to eat meat after my diabetes DX but my body thanks me for it Tonight I had bunless beef burger patties with saurkraut, sauteed red onions and steamed broccoli and carrots. Was a lazy dinner night.
  14. A grilled chicken breast might have given you better milage from that meal. I don't know what size portion of potato salad you had but if it was a large one, maybe reducing it and making up for the reduction with a bit of veg. would have been a good choice too. The cut of meat slows the digestion...
  15. I eat grain-free. Canned pumpkin suprizingly doesn't spike the blood sugar and is low-carb. I warm it up in the microwave for breakfast. You can add you fat of choice, olive oil, coconut oil, butter or substitute and "milk" of choice-coconut milk, almond milk or cow's milk and spice like cinnamon...
