    The test results you got back are not conclusive of Celiac disease. It means you have antibodies present in your blood. That can mean a number of things. What I did say was there are now more conclusive non-invasive tests that are conclusive and those are what I suggested. I also suggest you treat yourself as a Celiac until proven otherwise by the tests I suggested. So go gluten free and educate yourself about hidden gluten in foods and drugs.

    Oh okay thank you. Does it mean there is DEFINITELY something wrong, even though it may not be gluten? I read that it could very well be gluten in one article, then another article said that it could be a number of things like you said. I guess I'll have to wait. If this non invasive conclusive test indicates a negatve response, then what should I do? My doc is very busy and he didn't call me back today, i'll be talking to him tomorrow i hope.

    Where do I get this at home test?

    If they are both negative for Celiac/gluten intolerance then you have something else going on. My guess is that you may/maynot have celiac but certainly are at least gluten intolerant.

    No, like I said, one of them were positive the IgG so I'm still waiting to talk to the doc. Thanks a lot.

    hi racecoarse,

    does your diet involve eating everything raw (including the meat you mention)? i have read that the reason for much of man's disease is his consumption of cooked foods. of yeah, and for the gas with the legumes try papaya enzyme and chew your food!

    alex.

    Re: Hummus...good or bad?

    I guess my post did not connect so again ... I don't eat all raw but eat most meat rare. I eat large amounts of raw veg but some such as cruciferous ones like in the cabbage family lightly steamed as raw they can be goitrogenic. I hadn't heard about the papapya solution to legumes but I don't eat them. Phytates, protease inhibitors, haemagluttins, isoflavones present way too much downside for an amino acid profile that is lacking. The enzyme question is interesting with some believing that human ancestors may have controlled fire for over a half million years and so roasted and baked meats and some plant foods for long enough for evolution to accomodate the changes in food chemistry. Others think this "cooking" is of much more recent vintage and such evolutionary change could not have happened. Therefore, the unheated enzymes would be more key. Because of custom, palate and hygiene I don't personally see moving to an all raw diet (which would include animal foods) but I see no reason why it wouldn't be very healthy.

    Question Re: Hummus...good or bad?

My Dad started making hummus when I was about 14 (10 years ago) and then I started making it too. I usually make it once a week and with the recipe I use, I never feel guilty about eating a lot of it.

    Here is my recipe. Give it a try!

    1 can chick peas, drained
    2 cloves garlic
    1 tbsp tahini (sesame seed paste)
    juice of 2 lemons
    2 tbsp olive oil
    1 tsp cumin
    salt and pepper to taste
    1-3 tbsp of water (depending on how thick/smooth you like it)

    Basically what I do is I puree the garlic the food processor, then I had the lemon juice, chick peas, tahini and so on. I drizzle the olive oil in slowly so it is smooth

    *Tip: If you would like it to be really low fat, use only 1 tbsp olive oil and use water to make it smooth

    This recipe is really low fat (and the fat used is healthy fat) and high in protein! I eat it everyday!!!

    ENJOY!
    How do you prepare the chickpeas? Straight from the can? Raw? Or do you cook them first, or something? Thanks.

    Re: Hummus...good or bad?

    I do almost the same as justme, except I add a couple squirts of Hot Sauce (Franks or Louisiana) and make 3 cans at once...I HATE to clean the food processor!

    The canned peas are precooked so just dumpinto a collander to drain a couple minutes (rinse or not as you choose) and then just dump all ingredients into the CuisineArt!
    I found an improvement the last couple times: used TOASTED tahini (sesame paste.) It's harder to find but once you open the jar and the smell of the toasted seeds fills the room, you'll be sold. It keeps FOREVER in the fridge.
    I also add a Tbsp of sesame oil! (I LIKE sesame)

    Put into a bunch of small dishes and covered, you can enjoy the hummus on pita for a week or two. A few seconds to warm in the microwave before serving brings out the flavor more.

    Re: Hummus...good or bad?

    Sorry Justme, not sure. I'm the type of cook that I just throw it all in and it ends up tasting incredible. My friends believe my food is magic and I never use a recipe. Actually the one above, I basically made up. I just kinda follow what my Dad did, but changed a few things.

    Re: Hummus...good or bad?

    I went thru a phase of eating hummus. It is so delicious! I stopped myself from buying it, because I thought it was too many carbs. Just recently, I saw that hummus is on the list to eat when on a low-carb diet. I might buy more now that I know that!

    Re: Hummus...good or bad?

    The chickpeas end up being pureed in the food processor along with the other ingredients. If you follow the recipe, it should come out ok.
