  • I'm gluten free 😭 I'm really allergic to wheat so I'm off the gluten because even traces of wheat make me crook. Although there is a shop that does do gf beer that may be worth a go. Besides that I've got my gf boobie bikkies and nutritional yeast flakes and fengreek pills (which unfortunately causes baby upset tummy but…
  • [quote="katiesmom_99;c-43903237" Take care of yourself, concentrate on getting adequate nutrition, hydration, rest, and exercise. Feed your babies, carry a little extra padding on yourself. In a hot minute, that precious little boob-leech is going to be going off to kindergarten, a first date, homecoming, college. [/quote]…
  • Oh dear lord are they ever! Fortunately (thanks to severe morning sickness) I didn't gain too much during my pregnancies and (thanks to my thyroid going silly) I lost my pregnancy weight by 6 weeks pp this time. But now my Dr may have cut my thyroid meds back too much. Just can't win sometimes. I guess at least I'm not…
  • My goal is self weaning between 2 and 3 years. With my first I ebf for 9 months and then mix fed until she self weaned when my second was born just after 2. So I know I can do it considering I bf throughout pregnancy. Also I had to go to mixed feeding before partly because I was working full time and didn't get enough time…
  • Thanks so much everyone! I'll look into portion control plates. I'm not sure if I can easily get m here, but I can always try using them as a guide for my own plates. I really think this portion control and the lack of exercise are my biggest problems. I also really like the idea of questioning what I eat - am I really…
  • Yeah I love the actresses, but Anywhere But Here was kind of painful.
  • I've got a mild/moderate wheat allergy. Cramps, freakish bloating (seriously go from the "are you pregnant or just fat" to "holy hell you look about 6 months pregnant; your belly is so hard!". 1 to 1.5 kilos within a several hours is a normal gain), nausea, joint pain, brain fog, fatigue, rashes, and all sorts of…
  • No problem, let me know how it goes. I'd love to make them, but I kind of need an excuse to make such deliciousness (otherwise I might eat them all ;) )
  • I have two recipes saved I haven't tried yet: first and second. I've also got a third option if you can get a hold of Betty Crocker's gluten free Bisquick mix. (And if anyone in Australia knows where to get it/ who ships it I would I would love to know!)
  • I live in Australia so I don't know if you'll have the same brand. I use Inner Health Plus
  • I just found out I'm probably dyslexic... I'm going to be 28 in 2 days. After a dozen hearing & eye tests, 5 years of speech therapy, 4 years of reading tutoring, 2 years of math tutoring - how did no one think to test me for dyslexia as a child?!! So yeah, I'm going to be tested for dyslexia in a couple weeks- True story.
  • I've been using probiotic pills for years to help me digest yogurt and cheese. I personally hate the drinks, they taste awful so I've always used the pills (5+ years). With the pills I just take one with breakfast everyday, (It says 3 x a day, but I started out taking it 2x and moved to 1 after a few months). I can't…
  • I'm an ex stress smoker who also has some pretty fun anxiety issues. My anxiety used to get so bad it would cause insomnia. And until I dealt with the stress, no matter what I could do- I just couldn't stop smoking. So yeah learning how to not be stressed & anxious has been something I've spent most of my life doing. I…
  • Some things I do while I travel:* Take my own- if I'm in a hotel, I ask for one with a refrigerator & microwave and just bring frozen left overs. Vacations are lovely, but I save money and pain by eating in with the husband. * Search ahead of time for restaurants in my destination and along the road that look safe. Call,…
  • This looks seriously delicious. How long does it last? I like to do big cook ups and eat the same foods for days.
  • I want all the bananas, but too many calories. I wonder how many bananas before I make myself sick?
  • I'd be pissed and I'm not one to really get pissed. I would be upset for 2 reasons: (1) they felt they couldn't tell me (I think I would be more disappointed than pissed), (2) they jeopardized my health by not fessing up and lying about an std (I would be very angry). Seriously, I hope your buddy has had an STD test…
  • I live in a place where there's no cheese alternatives. I'm only slightly lactose intolerant so I can eat yogurt, so if it's just lactose that may something. I still stick away from most cheeses, just because I never know how my tummy will handle them and they're calorie dense. I get my calcium through greek yoghurt, leafy…
  • Everybody was Kungfu fighting
  • My father in law has ridiculously awful diverticulitis and one thing that really helps him (besides probiotics, eating only very fresh fruit & veg, and FODMAP diet) is colloidal silver. He makes his own, but he uses it to was fruits and veggies and help get rid of bacteria that causes painful inflammation. Because…
  • I once had a gun pulled out on my front lawn because of a gang clash.
  • I actually found a brand called Early Harvest here that do a low carb, low alcohol wines. Given that you're not much of a drinker anyways, they may be up your alley. I find that they're not as "heavy" as some of the regular reds and whites, but no where near as sweet as a moscato and I think something similar may help you…
  • I just can't understand racing. I've got cousins who do it in the states- stock car and motor cross. It looks bad a** I'll grant you, but you're basically paying to watch someone go in a circle for hours on end. To be fair I'm also a bit scared for life after seeing my cousin roll his car, get pinned against the railing,…
  • I moved to another country to marry a guy I met online.
  • Bathurst Australia- where a mullet is not unusual and it's a travesty that you can no longer bring more than a slab (24) of beer each to the races. I promise not everyone here is that bogan.... really.
  • Well I'm American, so you're not too far off. I'm just an expat. How do you clean it inbetween spices? I think the reason I've been so hesitant to get a grinder is because my father in law has one that makes EVERYTHING taste of cumin. I spent about 20 minutes cleaning that bad boy and still my almond meal had a delightful…
  • It took me three running starts to quit. Finally managed it 4 years ago. My advice- note your triggers. I'm a classic stress smoker. To quit, I have had to find ways to deal with my stress. You may be different, but if you figure out what routines or triggers in your environment make you think "you know what I want right…
  • I jogged just over 500 m today. I used my inhaler 10 minutes before and I didn't need my inhaler during. That's 2x as far as last week and no asthma attack pending, just a stitch in my side.
  • Probably can't get Epicure here if they're a Canadian Company. Looks like a lot of Mackenzie & Masterfood spices are wheat free/gluten free here. Bulk spice bins aren't much of a problem here either, I don't think I've ever seen one in Australia. But I'll definitely keep that in mind if I come across any bulk bins in a…
  • I have to admit that when I read the title, I sang the theme song.
