Asked my husband what kind of game hunter he was. Does that mean you're hungry, he replied. Affirmative, I answered.

What I'm cooking depends upon what he brings back :)


I love wild game! Venison is great when we can get it. We live in a city and don't hunt but my dad often hunts and gives us some of the deer meat.

I didn't feel like do a lot of cooking today so we're having turkey burgers with raw veggies and hummus tonight. Nice and simple.

I was speaking figuratively. My bad. Sorry.

It will still be an experience to see what HE brings back from the grocery. I made him a detailed list. All of that????? he asked. :)

I had lunch at work today with a coworker who brought curried goat. I have her recipe now. You could really bum him out if you put goat on the grocery list. (We can get frozen goat from West Indies grocery stores or Indian gorcers here.)

We had little grilled burgers and fennel sausage tonight with sweet cheeries and sliced peaches and green salad with Italian olives. Dark chocolate for dessert. Very yummy. And I wasn't hungry, so it was a bonus. Does anybody else have those times when you're supposed to eat and you just cant's care about eating? :ph34r:

I've found that since being gluten free that I'm hardly ever hungry and eat smaller portions than before. I imagine it's that my body is now absorbing more nutrients and so isn't looking for more food. I've struggled with my weight since childhood and now as well as not feeling hungry the weight just keeps coming off!! I'm also finding that I'm enjoying my food more than before.

Dinner tonight is venison haunch steaks from local deer farm.

My husband get goat whenever we find it! Yum.

The only times I do not care about food is when I am sick. It takes a lot for me not to think about food! :P

Yes, and other times I feel absolutely ravenous. I eat pretty much the same thing for breakfast each morning but some days I'm eying the sack lunch by 11am. Other days, like today, I skip lunch entirely because I just don't feel hungry. I usually try to have a bit of something, a handful of nuts or a piece of fruit, though.

Sorry about all of my typos. I've discovered that my most ravenous time is mid day, so I upgraded my lunchbox. It's now a 12 pack cooler from WalMart sporting goods section. (I'd been carrying a 6-pack).

This evening I pre-loaded it with safe dried cranberries and nuts, a little bottle of olive oil. I cut my lime in half for tomorrow, chopped up some artichoke hearts and carrots, and I already have chopped/washed/spun lettuce. That will be great with leftover roast chicken and a big fruit salad of melon, peaches, bluebeerries. I squirted the other half of the lime on the peaches.

It helps me so much to have my lunch prepared in advance, to just throw containers and baggies into a lunch bag along with some blue ice. I might have a banana or a sweet potato for breakfast tomorrow, but lunch will be good. And that will give me the fuel to get through another day.


I'm finally gaining weight! People are noticing and commenting on how much better I look. Yay! 7 lb. gain!

I used to be a morning person, but I'm definitely not anymore.

As to the OP, we had grilled chicken legs, sweet potatoes and salad, with a little dark chocolate for desert.

Summer is my favorite time to eat. I hit the farmer's market today, so it's all vegetables tonight: tiny green butterbeans, corn pudding, boiled new potatoes with rosemary, fresh snaps (aka green beans) with cornbread. And that's what I like about the South. Oh, and peach cobbler.

Ohmigosh, have you had Costco's macadamia nut, caramel, and chocolate clusters? I don't even know if they're gluten free but you should check because they are GOOD. Haven't had them in a long time though cause my we moved to an area without a costco close by and then my membership expired... :'(
