Eating Calzone

One of my officemates treated the rest of us with a Calzone from a local pizza house, Ryan’s Pizzarelli House. It was ordered through phone and was delivered in the office during the afternoon snack time. It was a Throwdown Calzone, which was stuffed with beef, bologna, salami, chorizo bilbao, mushroom, green bell pepper, red bell pepper, and onion. It was my first time to eat a calzone, though I already eat a lot of pizzas before. And I can say it was good and delicious. So yummy. You can feel the melted cheese when you bite. You can taste the ingredients.

Eating Fresh Milk Ice Cream Without Gallbladder

Last year, I posted eating ice cream without gallbladder and now an ice cream made of fresh milk from cow. A fresh milk ingredient direct from a dairy farm.


My Story – Without Gallbladder

This is my story without gallbladder

I am new here so I am going to tell everyone a bit about myself and my stomach problems.  I am now 31 years old.  When I was younger I was allergic to lots of foods (dairy etc.) but nothing actually bothered me too much.  Beginning in my last year in law school (approx. age 27)  I began having weird stomach problems.  Mostly consisting of bloating and immediate rushing to the bathroom after meals.  I saw 10+ gastro doctors and had every test under the sun – nothing was found.  I tried every herbal and prescription med out there.  In the end they diagnosed me with IBS and Gerd – because they had no idea what it was.

Fast forward, in Nov. 2009 I went to another gastro doctor.  They ran one more test – scan of my gallbladder and found it was functioning at 14%.  The next day they took it out.  And if I thought my stomach problems were bad before it was taken out – I had no idea what was in store for me!

For the first 3 months after the surgery (lapro) I had immediate dumping syndrome to everything I ate – from bread to crackers – everything! I tried everything under the sun again for bile reflux – nothing really worked.
