    Thanks, Leez, it wasn't my idea, but it certainly works. It's from a great cookbook by Carrie Brown called "Keto for the Holidays".

    PearlyMae- Great job getting back down in your window!

    I searched for the somers's dressing recipe, and found Mushroom Sausage stuffing. Not sure if that's what you were referencing, but I made it and it's incredible!

    TOM finally left yesterday. Was feeling a little better, then blew up after dinner last night. Didn't weigh this morning, because why bother I can see something is wrong. Starting to wonder if it's cauliflower, since I'm not eating eggs dairy or nuts or coconut. I tried adding ginger to two meals yesterday, didn't really help and I've already wasted $50 on digestive enzymes that I can't take, so not buying more of that.

    Today I had grilled fish w/ brussels sprouts salad, and a little bit of avocado-hemp-lemon dressing that I made. I also made a tomato cucumber salad with a drizzle of olive oil for snacking throughout the day. I'll have turkey or chicken or bone broth, with vegetables and a little pork later, avoiding cauliflower. If this doesn't help, then I can only assume my body just hates food. Seriously disappointed.

    I never had food sensitivities, or even bloating like this before, even during TOM. I'm just baffled at how to proceed. Please don't recommend seeing a dr. as I live in the US and that's not an option.

    Lovely Losers 2021 - NO STOPPING n November!!

    Mushroom sausage stuffing

    This started out as Suzanne
    Somers mushroom sausage stuffing and made 6 cups.

    But looking at all the notes on this recipe, I barely do half the stuff she said to do or use all the ingredients. So it is almost as much PearlyMae stuffing as it is SS

    Iíve put what I do in (parentheses)

    4 onions sliced (2)

    2 to 4 tablespoons olive oil

    4 cups coarsely chopped shiitake and oyster mushrooms or regular white button mushrooms. (2 pkgs of sliced)

    Salt and freshly ground black pepper

    1/2 cup dry white wine (skip)

    2 tablespoons Butter (Iíve done with 1/4 c chix broth, instead. Have also used more butter.)

    2 pound spicy turkey sausage meat removed from casing ( Slice into coins if using casing style sausages, but Iíve used Jimmy Dean bulk sausage ó either turkey or originaló and just made sure it was in crumbles and rinsed because it is super greasy. Make it bite-sized to match the mushrooms.)

    One bunch fresh tarragon leaves

    (I donít care for tarragon, so I use traditional stuffing spices which can include the whole song: parsley, sage, rosemary, & thyme, or a little marjoram, a touch of nutmeg and black pepper, and even oregano. Oró ďpoultry seasoningĒ which is most of the above.

    Sautť the onions and then add the mushrooms and
    Sautť them both over med high heat til caramelized. ( who has time for that? I let them both simmer in water or chix broth til softened and THEN saute. ) until mushrooms are crisp on the edges.

    Add the wine and cook it off on high (Iíve never bothered w this step) then let simmer another 10 minutes. Stir in butter and set aside.

    In another skillet, brown the sausage til Cooked thru (And rinse or pour off excess grease if using pork sausageó )add spices and mix in mushrooms and serve hot.

    Most recipes are vague on the measurements on the spices. The only one I could find was ď1 1/2 T of Poultry SeasoningĒ so just go easy. Start with a little in the palm of your hand (around a Tsp) for each and add more to taste, then allow time for it to simmer in.

    When served with Thanksgiving traditional bread stuffing, Iíve noticed a lot of people take a nice spoonful of each, and put gravy on it! So it is definitely something for everyone, and especially for you!

    P
    Ps: I expected to be back up today after that big loss yesterday, but Iím only up .2! I was worried I would be back up to 2.6 out of 2.8, lol.

    Alright, so I took 2 bites (sips) of broth that contained onions, celery, a little olive oil and salt.

    And I blew up 3 sizes in my stomach.

    The only other thing I've had is hemp hearts blended with water. Unless that slight frothiness is causing this, I'm really confused.

    I ate macadamia nuts, don't see the point in restricting food, at this point I may as well have dairy. Sheesh. Taking a break from the scale, not sure if I'll just go back to p2 foods only, with a little olive oil on everything. Really tempted to just eat pumpkin pie though.

    Sam! Step away from the pumpkin pie! LOL.

    Some of the veggies you list are ones that EVERYONE gets a bit bloated from. I mean, not people on diets or with any sensitivities, just regular eating. Cauliflower and Brussel sprouts can clear a room. So can broccoli and when older folks are served cabbage they wonder if someone is trying to kill them! Cucumbers can also fall into that category. No, that doesn't mean you can't eat them, I'm just saying it is not as unusual as it feels. You are eating them cooked, which helps, but am thinking maybe getting some good probiotics in your system will even things out, as you are reacting to more than you are used to. Not pills, not expensive stuff, just some good plain Greek yogurt to start your day may help you out. Oh wait, dairy is doing a number on you. So not yogurt, but maybe check out ∑ Kombucha ∑ Kefir ∑ Kimchi ∑ Miso. etc. IDK, you may have to google something until you find what you like.

    I know very little about probiotics, so hopefully someone else will chime in, but I'm thinking that most of us have experienced food sensitivities that we have not had before after a round of P2. Even those of us with many rounds under our belts have had weird reactions to things we thought were ok. But, after a while, they seem to calm down. I had a bout of dairy sensitivity a few years back. Without cheese and hwc, I consider life barely worth living. But eventually, I was able to add back all dairy with no further concerns. I was reacting to almond after a round, and I just quit eating them for a few weeks and then I was fine ever after.

    I notice that I woooped way up after having some potatoes. I've had a small serving of potatoes at special dinners on occasion with no problem, and just avoid them as a daily thing, so did not think they were any big deal. I thought they were just something with more carbs than I want on a regular basis. But UP 4 pounds in a week after eating them gets your attention.

    You can do an online doctor, Teledoc, google it. Not expensive and you don't have to go anywhere. They may be able to think of something.

    Meanwhile, you found the right recipe. Did you do the white wine / tarragon / sausage in a casing way? LOL. I skip the 'fancy stuff."

    Thank you so much for these ideas. I love kombucha, hadn't considered it due to the sugar content - but I think I'll try a sip or two tomorrow.

    I've been trying very hard to not utter a phrase like "life isn't worth living without ______" throughout this process. I didn't say it about cream (my all time favorite), butter (goes awesome with cream lol), ooey-gooey delicious cheese, coconut, etc., but when I wondered today if it was the hemp hearts, I was like No. You're not taking this away from me, too haha. It's my last vice I won't even consider giving them up. It's incredibly relieving to hear these anecdotes about sensitivities going away on their own, I appreciate you sharing.

    I am not a huge tarragon fan, either! used fresh sage since I already had some, w/thyme and rosemary, and ground my own sausage in the blender from pork belly. Then I just deglazed with white wine vinegar to get the brown bits after sauteeing. Honestly, I read the title of the recipe and the ingredients and just ran to the kitchen to make it, I had been so focused on replacing the bread I didn't even consider just making a normal stuffing...without bread! It would have been great with some walnuts or pecans, maybe I'll add diced apple next time I heat it up. That suggestion was a lifesaver, though!

    Hi all!
    Yummy recipes! I will be making mini keto pumpkin pies in ramekins.
    @samslice, Sorry you're so discouraged with this P3! I know the feeling all too well. You might want to check out this info Grammy posted years ago to deal with your coconut oil sensitivity:
    How To Laser a Food Sensitivity
    It helped me with almonds years ago.

    Sam, that's annoying, but also maybe an indicator? Perhaps it wasn't dairy causing problems? You might do a trial with HWC or butter and see how you do. Just a suggestion -

    Thank you, Karen! I had actually attempted searching for that but didn't have any luck, this is great.

    know, the dairy inflammation was very obvious before I started this round, but I'm willing to see if it has gone away. I can try butter or coconut manna (yes I know this isn't dairy, but I miss these two and their high fat content the most) this week.

    I'm not really sure how to proceed. Do I just try a tablespoon with one meal, watch for bloating then check weight for 3 days, or should I eat it more liberally?

    I noticed today that coffee (or liquid stevia) is a huge trigger for me. I'm honestly kind of relieved, in part because I know it's not hemp hearts, but also because I've been having it throughout the day lately. If that were the sole source of this bloating I would be so happy.

    Today I stuck to avocado, olives, pulled pork, flax, hemp and poppy seeds, as well as some cacao butter. I also had erythritol and xylitol, no bloating. I kept the acv I've been having, also took a bite of raw garlic, and had a sip of kombucha. Only noticeable inflammation was early with coffee and sweetleaf English toffee stevia.

    Sam,

    I sincerely hope you get this inflammation and bloating sorted out. Have you considered you may have a general problem, rather than a response to specific foods? I have issues with sugars and starchy carbs; but in the past, I had general irritation, gas and bloating that lasted for several weeks. It was recommended that I take activated charcoal capsules. It seemed weird, but it seemed to work. After a week or two, my issues resolved, and I quit using the charcoal. Other than my carb problem, it hasn't recurred.
