Hi Pat,

Good to hear from you on the meals thread! I have been thinking of you and wondering how things were going. It is not easy at the beginning with such a limited diet. But, it does sound like your gut is appreciating having only least reactive foods to deal with. Are you finding it hard to find "pure" foods to test? I have.

I can't believe I am on day 35 already. Time flies when you're having fun! LOL. You mentioned having a problem with beets. They tested green for me but I have been reluctant to try them yet because I think I have had problems in the past. Of course, I have had some LEAP surprises, like being able to tolerate eggs and not tolerating avocados. As tedious as the diet seems right now, it does get easier and it is invaluable to tease out all of these annoying sensitivities.

Keep us posted on your progress.

Hugs,

Polly

Polly,

Thanks for your encouraging words, Polly This really is difficult but I am doing ok now that the legumes are gone. Things are slowing down and I am not feeling like I am starving all the time. I even went to our small HFS and found Quinoa flour, Tapioca flour, Quinoa flakes and I just made the Oil Biscuits in the Leap manual. They are pretty good! I made them with the Quinoa flour. Next time I will try Tapioca flour.

Pure foods? I only eat pure foods. Meats are pure. Quinoa is pure. Zuchinni is pure. Olive oil is pure. Ok, I used Hains Baking Powder in the biscuits. They have monocalcium phospate, potato starch, potassium bicarbonate. We'll see how I do.

Hi Pat,

That baking powder sounds OK to me, so long as you can tolerate white potatoes. (I can't unfortunately). You and Kari have enticed me to try the biscuits. Haven't tested quinoa yet.

Polly,

Quinoa is my new best friend! I really like it and I am having some positive results today. Not quite Norman but headed that way! Quinoa is a complete protein and high in carbohydrate. Be sure to cook it the full 15 minutes so there are no white dots in the middle. My daughter was visiting this past weekend and she likes it too. Try it! The biscuits are pretty good. Maybe next time I will use a different oil other than olive for a different taste. I will also try making them with tapioca flour.

Pat,

Quinoa tested as my least reactive grain, so I really need to test it. I have avoided all grains except rice so far, because I was worried about lectins. But I think Mary Beth told me that quinoa is actually a seed. Do you know about that? I know nothing about quinoa - saw it in the store today - I saw it in flake form and also little beads. I guess it comes in flour form too. Help - do you have any recipes? I have no idea how to eat it! LOL.

Did I hear you say "positive results"?? This is sounding encouraging.............

Polly

Polly,

The little beads you saw can be cooked like rice, eaten as a hot cereal or in salads. I have made quinoa tabbouleh http://find.myrecipes.com/recipes/recipefinder....id=10000000223454 and quinoa pilaf http://www.foodnetwork.com/recipes/quinoa-pilaf...ecipe/index.html. I used to like making a salad with quinoa, smoked turkey, dried cranberries, nuts and orange vinaigrette. I tried quinoa again last night and no problems with it. I was suspicious of it a while back and needed to re-test it and am glad that I did.

Pat,

That is great news! I know the first few weeks are a slow go, testing out items, and it's hard when we react to "green" foods, but taking time to test response to each food will pay off.

Mary Beth

Fantastic news, Pat! I hope it continues!

I also love quinoa. Here's some information from Wikipedia:

Quote:
Quinoa was of great nutritional importance in pre-Columbian Andean civilizations, being secondary only to the potato, and was followed in importance by maize. In contemporary times, this crop has become highly appreciated for its nutritional value, as its protein content is very high (12%18%). Unlike wheat or rice (which are low in lysine), and like oats, quinoa contains a balanced set of essential amino acids for humans, making it an unusually complete protein source among plant foods.[10] It is a good source of dietary fiber and phosphorus and is high in magnesium and iron. Quinoa is gluten-free and considered easy to digest. Because of all these characteristics, quinoa is being considered a possible crop in NASA's Controlled Ecological Life Support System for long-duration manned spaceflights.[10]

I just tried the Quinoa flakes made like oatmeal. It was pretty good, filling, and quick - only takes 2 1/2 minutes for a serving. Don't try to compare it to oatmeal, it was different. Mary Beth said they can be used as a coating on meats or squash for something crunchy. I may try that tonight.

Ok, I fried zucchinni dipped in quinoa flakes tonight and it was great! Even DH who hates zucchinni thought it was very good. I used olive oil and wet each round with water before dredging it in the flakes on both sides. They tasted just like fried okra. Crunchy on the outside tender on the inside. Hope my gut likes it too!

Had trouble with my computer last night so I didn't post my result from the fried zuchinni. I had looser stools yesterday. I am not sure what from. I am leary of everything! I had lamb with it and it sure is greasy. Volume is definitely less and frequency too. Just can't get the elusive formed BM. I am suspicious of squash, olive oil, meats, even Quinoa. Maybe it just takes time to heal. I am off Imodium so that is good news. I became suspicous of potatoes so I took those out and that means no Hains baking powder or EnerG egg replacer, both have potato starch. For breakfast today I made Quinoa pancakes from Bob's Red Mill website. Only had Quinoa flour, water, salt, oil, and it called for baking powder so I used baking soda and cream of tartar. It worked and tasted fine. Made my stomach feel a little funny for awhile but it was filling. Of course I ate them plain since I am sensitive to sugar and maple, but I have gotten used to nothing sweet.

Pat,

I'm wondering of that meal wasn't just a little too greasy and that's what caused the problem. Maybe you can try again but "oven fry" them - coat and bake at 400 degrees until they crisp - may need to turn once. Some cuts of lamb can be fattier and some leaner - what cut did you use?

You are making progress and Norman may come in time. Please remember that it took me 6 weeks on LEAP to see Norman. Any progress is better than none.

Mary Beth

Mary Beth,

They were lamb chops. I pan fried the squash but I am sure you are right about the grease. I didn't think of oven frying. I think I also need to stick with plain Quinoa because ever since I ate the pancakes this morning I have had gurgling and gas. Maybe from the soda and cream of tartar? I'm just being impatient. Thanks for helping!

I am now working on finding ways to eat quinoa and have never had it before. This is a great thread, Mary Beth thanks for posting the recipes, they look quite good. I am going to try and reduce my rice intake by substituting with quinoa
