fappomatic: naughtyrev: Just make Khalua pancakes and be done with it. Or make small pancakes and dunk them in white russians. Both are equally awesome, though none as good as pure pancakes with peanut butter melting all over them.

Pancakes are failed waffles. Give be a big Belgian waffle with malt added to the batter.
Cook it until crispy, pile on some bacon and drown it in real maple syrup.

I don't know about Gluten free, but the Peruvian food I've eaten has been damned tasty!

WHAT THE FARK IS IT ABOUT GLUTEN FREE ANYWAY? That whole thing is just stupid for 99.9% of the people in the world without celiac disease (or however the fark you spell it - lazy). It is, quite simply THE ONLY protein you get from a vegan diet that's worth a crap.

I guess people are just dying to appear to be healthy in the eyes of their equally ignorant peers.

I tried coconut milk pancakes, and found them quite tasty. Although I employ such a high ratio of syrup to pancake that they could have been banshee milk pancakes and I probably wouldn't know the difference.

There's nothing more obnoxious than "trendy" food.

I'll keep eating meat and vegetables prepared in a straightforward way and visiting the mom'n'pop Mexican spots around here.

I think the whole gluten free thing was made up in a joint conspiracy between the cities of Austin, Seattle, and Portland to trick the hipsters/hippies into paying more for food.

It's an excuse for their low carb diet. Saying they're allergic to gluten sounds better than "I'm fat and need to lose weight".


Point of order, I -tried- a gluten-free diet for a bit because I constantly felt like refried ass since moving to this here us of a (sort of "paleo", no processed-anything, wheat, sugar) and now I can't eat a slice of bread without being stuck on the shiatter all the next day.

KatjaMouse: Peepeye: I work at an Italian restaurant. People get mad that we don't offer gluten free pasta. Offering rosemary potatoes or extra veggies doesn't satisfy them.

You ever go to a wedding with a vegan or vegetarian guest? It's a really sad offering they receive at dinner.

It's an excuse for their low carb diet. Saying they're allergic to gluten sounds better than "I'm fat and need to lose weight".

I have a few friends who eat quite well and avoid gluten, as it upsets their digestive tract. They're not celiac, they just feel kinda bloated/gassy after a pasta meal. They're DEFINITELY not low-carb though, i've never seen human beings eat so much risotto in one session.


If it actually makes you feel like crap that's fine. I can't eat anything with MSG. Well, I can but it gives me a terrible headache. But probably 99% of people are only doing it cause they think it's cool to tell people they're "gluten free". Or as I said, fat-asses masking a diet with a "allergy".

2013-01-04 12:15:38 PM
I have loved bacon all my life, so as far as I'm concerned it can stay 'in.' Sliders can GTFO. Peruvian? There will always be some regional schtick that comes out of obscurity to create a trend, and it will eventually fade away again to the periphery, like fondue or Polynesian.

Seems to me that the only way exotic cooking styles stick is when we end up with a *shiatload* of immigrants, like with Japanese, Chinese, Mexican, Vietnamese, Jewish delis, gyros, falafel & shawarma, etc.

My other daughter (b) is not picky at all, and they are both toddlers. I just discussed gluton testing daughter (a) with the wife this morning as a matter of fact.

Meantime, I've been wanting to try more glutton free foods, as I have become somewhat intollerant to some foods as I've aged. I know it may be "trendy" and all, but who cares - I like trying new things, and until we get the wee one tested, I'd like to see how she and even I take to different gluton free foods over the weekend.

Second! Just this week I drove nearly an hour to get some pollo a la brasa (and a glass of homemade chicha morada to boot), and it was worth every minute. Tried making it on the grill once, but it just wasn't the same.

I really wish this stuff would grow more popular in the ATL. It seems like even the good Peruvian restaurants close down from lack of patronage.

It is always nice to find a true believer that puts peanut butter on pancakes. I also put PB on waffles. Good thing to try: make corn muffin pancakes. Jiffy corn muffin mix has waffle/pancake directions on the side of the box. It's pretty darn good and goes well with peanut butter.


When my wife and I first started dating, we quickly realized that we both put PB on pancakes (and waffles) and we knew it was meant to be. I'll give the corn muffin pancakes a try.

We live in a culture of abundance, where we all have access to anything and everything we could want, all the time. So qualities like discipline and self-control end up manifesting in a decision to abstain, and then that abstention, because it requires a constant awareness and conscientiousness re: food, becomes rolled into the person's identity; that's where the over-reaction and self-righteousness comes from. We also don't really like to be seen as vain, so ascribing a medical need, even subconsciously, is preferable. Otherwise, asking people to go out of their way to accommodate your dietary restrictions that they themselves don't follow is basically saying "I'm not going to eat this, because if I do, I'll be fat, like you."

I know some people who have genuine medical issues with gluten, but I also know a lot of people who claim it makes them low-energy or piss out of their ass or whatever. I get it, partially; I stay away from processed foods and all grains most of the time, but I do it to keep a low weight and high energy. But I have no problem admitting that I do it primarily to stay slim. And I don't think gluten-free has anything to do with a healthy diet. Hell, there's a gluten-free bakery just across the parking lot from my office, run by a family with celiac; I could head over there and have cake for lunch. It wouldn't be healthy, but it would be gluten-free.

It seems to be a poluar opinion that trying things because they are trendy is stupid.

*waves stupidly*

It's not all so bad is it? When people have fun trying trendy stuff?

Why just the other day I went in to a trendy shop because it was having a sale, and I found some old school design top hats on sale and bought one *gasp*.

It's all you really need to keep your head warm in SoCal this time of year anyay. Was I being practical or trendy? *clinches fists* Who can really tell?

There's a place called China Poultry not far from my home I had never actually visited. I've noticed they've had lines out the door lately. Being "trendy" I decided to get in line and talk to people to see what the fuss was about. Gezzuz, were they ever excited about chicken! So I brought home a free range organic chicken and a dozen organic eggs.

I haven't tasted poultry so delicious since I was in Central America.

Damn trendy people, they really need to get the "why" they are doing something straight before they try it, or they are just idiots, idiots I tell you!

I don't think that's a trend. That's, like, staple diet elements of coastal regions between the tropics of cancer and capricorn. Seafood has been eaten with lime and lemon for a very long time because the citric acid denatures the proteins in seafood, which changes the texture and kills bacteria the way cooking it does.

Let's not overstate things. Coconut milk ice cream does taste pretty good, but is in now way better than traditional ice cream made with whole milk and heavy whipping cream. One of the major benefits of coconut milk ice cream is that it is relatively low in calories.

Food can be prepared very nicely what I am talking about is coconut crusted and lime dunked. Maybe I should have said trendy food that doesn't translate that well to mass production. I will say that bacon fits into both camps nicely.

WHAT THE FARK IS IT ABOUT GLUTEN FREE ANYWAY? That whole thing is just stupid for 99.9% of the people in the world without celiac disease (or however the fark you spell it - lazy). It is, quite simply THE ONLY protein you get from a vegan diet that's worth a crap.

I guess people are just dying to appear to be healthy in the eyes of their equally ignorant peers.


Modern wheat has been bred to have more gluten in it so that it rises better and for more protein. There's a theory that this increase is setting off people who are only carriers of the gene later in life. Also, Doctor's now realize that gluten-sensitivity/Celiac is not just a child's disease and can present itself later in life. Furthermore, the GF diet has only been around roughly 50 years, I wonder how many children just died mysteriously beforehand.

My Aunt almost died from Celiac in the 50's and was saved by the GF diet. However, in the past 15 years that side of the family has had an explosion of GI issues. A Great-Aunt was diagnosed with Celiac in her 70's, my Uncle was diagnosed with Celiac in his 50's, Colon Cancers among the Great-Aunts and Uncles, a cousin with Chrons, my Mom with Diverticulitis, and myself with IBS. Something is going on.

There's evidence that not just Celiacs and Gluten. Wheat Belly's author Dr. Davis claims it's not just gluten but also Gliadin. He claims Gliadin causes inflammation and an opiate addictive affect on the brain, definitely interesting and worth a read.
