My first week of experimentation was actually pretty hard! I just ate what I had on hand so I didn’t go out an buy any special gluten-free items. But anyway, basically every morning I had Bob’s Red Mill Mighty Tasty Hot Cereal which just happens to be gluten free and I had it on hand. It’s ingredients are just whole grain brown rice, corn, sorghum, and buckwheat. So I would have that with some fruit and almond butter. A little something like this:
Those were actually frozen blueberries so I heated them up in a saucepan and they got a little syrupy.
Lunches were typically just an assortment of vegetables and fruit. I did have a little something special one day though :)
Black bean quinoa burger! I’m not 100% sure that the ketchup is gluten free but my quick review of the ingredients seemed okay.
Dinner was more vegetables and I had fish most of the nights. Like this:
But then I caved by last night. First I made popcorn which is fine but it didn’t last very long with all the people in the living room (watched Morning Glory…it was just alright) so then I was still hungry and went for the wheat thins. Gluten free week lasted 4 days…..well I was only planning on this being a Monday through Friday thing anyway so I pretty much made it! And I celebrated this morning with a whole wheat pancake teehee
Coming up next week: Vegan! I actually got some almond milk in preparation because I really don’t like to drink my coffee black or with just sugar/Truvia. I need my milk!
Oh and I took advantage of the beautiful weather at the end of this week by going out for a run. Confession – I haven’t worked out legitimately in about 2 weeks. End result? Awful run. I felt great in the beginning but around mile 3 my left knee gave out. By mile 4 my left hip started hurting and my legs felt like lead. I legit leisurely walked back the last 2 miles. Luckily it was sunny and warm out.
What bad timing. Even Misty thinks so.
