Even though it is June, it feels like a fall day, so I'm making Beef-Barley Soup.

I made homemade "raw" greek-style yogurt last night. It turned out amazing and is much less expensive then purchasing tubs of yogurt from the grocery. Bonus - you control the flavor, sweetener, and thickness! You can use the same process with regular yogurt, the result is more tangy and perfect for straining down to cream cheese (although I think for the quanity it's cheaper to purchase cream cheese unless you have a cow from which you get your milk!)

Getting healthy is like getting through boot camp. It's a lot of hard work, and some days you want to quit. But when graduation day arrives, memories of pain and trouble pale in the light of the pride and accomplishment you feel. You made it! You didn't quit.

My husband did the cooking tonight: split pea soup (starting with dry split peas which don't need soaking, with onion, carrot and kale, seasoned with sea salt, turmeric, allspice and hot sauce. I put a dollop of sour cream on top. Satisfying, inexpensive and enough for 2 days.

Unfortunately, My brother considers me (and my advice) weird or tainted... It doesn't matter if I give him a legitimate site or not he just doesn't follow anything I recommend. He will just have to suffer through it until he decides not to anymore.

Dinner tonight Salisbury steak, mashed potatoes, and a veggie mix of broccoli, snap peas, carrots and water chestnuts....

DRAWNTHISWAY, I know that with celiac disease people don't have a choice about giving up wheat and all gluten in the long run. Your brother's symptoms will most likely get worse over time. Maybe you can pass on a website with more info to him.
Nobody in our family has celiac so we don't have to be as strict but it's really not hard to eat gluten-free. There are so many other options out there. emoticon

I have several friends (and a brother) who have been diagnosed with celiac disease. Amazingly my Brother continues to eat wheat, as he doesn't want to be abnormal...(he comes from my family, that is abnormal enough I guess)

I have a few friends whom are gluten free. It's so interesting to see how many more people have heard of this and are now trying to implement it into their eating styles.

When I worked as a para-educator the child I worked with was on a very strict diet and gluten free was part of it. I thought he was the healthiest kid I'd ever known. Until I had my youngest that is. LOL But in 2001, I hadn't ever heard of this.

We are mainly gluten free due to my daughter being gluten intolerant. It certainly has changed things.

We are trying a gluten-free diet. I'm going to make a quiche with buckwheat flour for the crust and our own duck eggs, frozen kale (from our garden) and onions for dinner.

How timely that you would begin this thread just as I was wondering if I should ask some of my friends what they're doing for dinners. LOL

My family has dietary restrictions and on top of that we eat a lot fruits and veggies and our heaviest meal is lunch.

Last night's dinner was blackberries and bruschetta.
Today for lunch I'm thinking of making white bean chicken chili. The weather is expected to drop today, so that would be a good hearty meal.

Thank you for starting the thread

Just catching up here. Last night my family had ham, mashed potatoes, a broccoli casserole dish and gravy. Tonight will be sloppy joes and potatoe wedges.

Black Bean Chili, made from dry beans which I soaked since this morning, a couple of cans of tomatoes, some ground beef, onion, garlic, chili powder, turmeric, sea salt. I make enough for 2 days so I don't have to cook tomorrow. We have it with sour cream and/or grated cheese on top, I usually make some green veggies as a side dish.
