  • I have used coconut flour to dust my chicken or pork chop in, on the rare occasion that I want something fried. Works great for me. I love the flavor.

    Just my 2 cents...but I agree with Jenn. From all that I have read about gluten intolerance you almost have to treat yourself as a celiac patient. Until the gut is healed even a little dab is to much & if you are intolerant I would imagine that you would always be sensitive.

    Glad to see you're feeling better!

    • I can feel the effects of gluten with even minimal amounts (like in a bar of chocolate!)...

      • I took my car to the body shop today to have the door fixed - little assholes who broke into it have no idea how much trouble and money they have cost us! Then Enterprise picked me up and took me to the rental shop - I got a Dodge Durango. Pretty nice! Too much LUXERY for me though - I prefer my Pathfinder! The Durango has a push start/stop and all kinds of bells and whistles! I would have picked a compact but that's all they had at the moment. Its a VERY small rental site and they cater to the body shops so they don't have a large inventory like you would find at an airport. Our insurance pays 80% up to $500 so we won't have to pay too much. I guess I could have driven the dune buggy -

        But its not very comfortable - and its a stick. I know how to drive a stick - but its been a few years.........

        Anyway........ tonight is the big bible study kick-off bbq at our house. We're ready The beans are heating up in the crock pot, the potato salad is chilled and the dessert is done. I decided to skip the ice cream - but I might pick up some cool whip on the way home from work. I also forgot to get 2 steaks for hubby and I. Its a bring your own meat thing. We were sitting on the patio yesterday making sure we had everything done and then realized we didn't have any meat for us. We have some frozen - but he wants me to buy some thick ones from Safeway.

        • OMG dune buggy!!! I didn't know you had one! Does it have a Volkswagen air-cooled engine (from a Beetle)? My friend has one like that, but not nearly as nice. He also has one that he has built from scratch, just from a tube frame, but he's never managed to get it a title because he won't build an actual body for it. MA is strict about recreational vehicle laws.

            • Ah, so awesome <3 I had a '74 Beetle for a couple of years, but we never got it running consistently. I sold it when I was sick of it constantly breaking down for some reason or another.

              • This one is a 56 chassis - the engine was completely rebuilt about 5 years ago, but is not the original engine. My hubby found it in a farmers field completely covered in weeds and blackberry vines. There was no floor, no engine and it was all pretty trashed! Its been completely restored. It has a full soft top too.

                • How's the whole30 going? Are you still attempting it? How are you going to work through the barbecue?

                  • still attempting - but I'm about to throw in the towel. My mood is all over the place - making it really hard to stay focused. I'm doing okay - but I've not been 100%

                      • I think it has more to do with menopausal hormone issues than diet. I've been 95% whole30 - just not perfect. Hubby forgets what I'm doing and he'll cook my eggs in butter, or I'll forget and I'll have ketchup. Then there was the fried chicken thing I'm not going to quit - but I am going to see my doctor.

                        • bible study men's group BBQ done Another good gathering in our backyard. We counted 23 people at this one. My steak was gristly and I only ate a little of it. That meant food choices were not whole30 - and not even primal. Whatever......... I'm too tired to care!

                          • Its LATE!!! 1:20 in the AM hours. We had 23 people over for the BBQ - and I was too wound up to go to bed at 10:30 when hubby headed up to bed. So here I sit.............. I played all my games on words with friends - just chatted with a friend in Washington who is also still up at this late hour - did a little online research on bio-identical hormones - looked at pond stuff - and now I'm back here again. I really need to go to bed. I'm so thankful I have an afternoon job. These late night can't sleeps don't happen very often - but when they do its nice to know I don't have to be anywhere in the weeee hours of the morning.

                            Did I mention how cool the rental car is? Dodge Durango. It has a push button start/stop. They call it a "proximity" key. As long as the key is in the vehicle you just push the button to start or stop the engine. It has a back up camera...... it told me I had one tire with low air pressure - even told me which tire, and how much pressure was registering. I stopped at the rental shop on the way home from work, and they put in some more air to fix it! It tells me how much fuel I'm burning and what mileage I'm getting. When I close the back hatch -- it "closes" the hatch for me. In fact, it opens and closes the hatch for me! Who fricken needs a car that will do all that? Its a very "smart" car.......... and very comfortable with its leather, heated and cooled seats. But visibility sucks! I like my Pathfinder better! I'm looking forward to having my car back. I've always loved my Pathfinder - but now, after having this "luxury" SUV - I love my Pathfinder even more!!! DAMN those little bastards who punched my lock with a screw driver and caused me all this trouble and inconvenience!!! Cost? $250 deductible, plus 20% of the rental car cost. Little bastards will cost us about $300 --- and what they stole from our car MIGHT have gotten them $30 on craigslist. If justice where on MY side............... those little bastards would be doing some HARD labor in MY yard!!!! EDGING and WEEDING!!!! They would be cleaning gutters and windows!!! And I would be loving on them and telling them they are better than that penny-anty shit they were doing breaking into cars.

                            We were VICTOMIZED. I don't like that feeling. If I knew who did it - I'd be reaching for their hearts - but I don't. So I'M ANGRY! There is NO justice for the victimized. You just have to deal with the feelings of intrusion and violation and move on - move past - get over it. There is no closure - and that's the hardest part for me. I LIKE closure. But this is closure-less.

                            I just don't get it. Do they have NO conscience? do they feel NO remorse for the financial burden and inconvenience they cause others? I just don't get it - I have NO concept of what they think as they are breaking into a car and taking whatever they feel they can benefit from. If I so much as bump another car - I will leave a note! "Sorry my door hit your mirror - left a little smudge"

                            I just don't get it.

                            • Well, the easy answer is no - they don't think about the hardship they are causing an innocent person. Years ago I had someone break my rear window to steal something from my car. Do you know what they took? Three quarters - 75 cents - from the ashtray. Cost me $175 plus of course what the insurance paid. At about the same time a friend had the same thing happen to her - they took an empty shopping bag. The people who did it are only thinking of getting enough to buy alcohol or drugs. Five or six dollars is all they need.

                              • yeah, I would say the simple version is they are valuing their need above your inconvenience. If I was in a rut for whatever reason (drugs, totally broke, homeless, whatever), it would not bother me to inconvenience someone by damaging their property so I could get something to help myself. Especially if I had no other way.
