|chili's gf menu :o)|
it's going to take a lot of adjusting but i know i will prevail. q & hopp will pretty much eat what i put in front of them but getting jess on the program is going to be a little issue but she will adjust as well. she is really upset she can't have the biscuit sausage at school anymore. she has seen the list of candy/snacks that are gf so i think she is feeling better about it. what we can't have in bread we can eat in sweets & drink sodas. i know, i know they aren't that great for you either. all things in moderation. :o)
here is a delish recipe for pumpkin dessert bars with chocolate chunks. can't wait to try them. i will let you know how they taste.
here's the reason for the gf diet all the sudden, i have had stomach problems over half my life, if not all my life. was deathly allergic to milk when i was a baby & child. my mom's friend called me the exorcist baby because i would spew milk across the room in "reagan style" before my mom found out i was allergic to milk. so that was probably the beginning. then i pretty much grew out of it & when i had jess i started getting these nasty sulphur-ish burps along with horrible cramping, almost labor like in the intensity & coming & going like clockwork. it was horrible! they always thought it was my gallbladder & sono after sono on my abdomen, nothing... no gallbladder issues. so frustrating. finally my obgyn, after i had q, sent me to a gastro dr. he gave me a colonoscopy & lots of blood work & i was diagnosed with crohn's disease. this was the answer to all my problems but with crohn's there's not a lot of help in what you should eat & how to keep your body from having the laborish pains & the nasty burps. when i went to go see the gastro dr at the end of march she (the PA) asked how everything had been going. i told her about all my stomach problems & that q had the same thing as well. she was puzzled, we have never had q tested for crohn's or anything else so she mentioned that she thought it might be celiac's disease. so she sent me off to get a blood panel done, i had heard that the panel for celiac's is not really reliable so i didn't expect much from it but what do you know, my diagnosis was 'extremely high risk to develop' celiac's. what exactly does that mean??? do i have it or not? so, we are cutting out all wheat & gluten items. i started on easter day & i tell you, i feel so much better! i still have a couple of tummy issues here & there but nothing like how i have had the last 2 weeks! i was in such pain & the gas was beyond terrible & uncontrollable. before i could take an alka-seltzer & the burps would stop, an instant cure-all. but the last 2 wks it was not helping one bit! so if you have been having the same symptoms take a break from the breads & wheat items, you may feel a world of difference.
