Feeling Groovy!

I am through the withdrawal and am feeling great!! I am experimenting with a few different bread mixes out there. The Bob's Red Mill Whole Grain one is very good if you like the taste of rye bread. I also like the Kinnikinik sunflower flax seed bread. That one is not a yeast bread, it is a little heavier and sweeter than most breads, but is very good to make a peanut butter/banana sandwich with. I am also eating tons of salads and fresh fruits, and frittata's are also my new favorite for breakfast, lunch or supper.

I will have to start experimenting with bread recipes from scratch, as the mixes are a bit expensive, however, it is only me eating them, and I cut the slices thin, so a loaf lasts me quite a while.

 

I was away for the weekend skiing in Kananaskis country (Nakiska ski hill) and the weather was gorgeous, fresh snow, absolutely beautiful. It was also my first trip away going gluten free and managed to get through the weekend okay....stuck with salads, etc in the restaurant, and other than that packed my own food (yogurt, homemade gluten-free muffins, homemade gluten-free sandwiches, fresh fruite, etc.) so with my cooler full of goodies I was set. The only thing that caused me grief over the weekend was the red wine but I think that was a quantity issue ;) .

Still feeling grooooovy? LOL?

I just do not have that much ambition to bake.. I am more into cooking entrees like pot roasts, chicken, etc. I have been cooking bigger meals on the weekends so I have left overs. I really like the crock pot. Thinking of making some soup. Just put everything in the crock pot and let it cook all day.. of course I cheat.. i buy the frozen onions all cut up, even red and green peppers come frozen and all chopped up.. ;)

I went shopping today.. got a chuck roast and split chicken breasts. And I replaced my steak sauce.. the one I used to use had Malt vinegar.. still sad over the bacon bits though.. that was a bummer to see wheat in them...


Later


PS..

Tater tots have wheat too!

Yes, It is surprising the things you have to give up...check the labels on the soup stock you buy as well...you'll be amazed at how many contain wheat. The organic Imagine brand seems to be gluten free and you can also buy bullion cubes that are gluten free. I do like to cook and bake, both. I guess the things I miss are the baked items so that is what I'm gravitating towards.

Made a yummy peanut satay sauce the other day (Safeway brand soy sauce is gluten free) and made a bunch of chicken satay. My left over chicken will end up on a salad.

By the way, met with the nutritionist and watch the little paper packages of pepper. Apparently many of them have wheat germ in them as filler...who knew??? As well, many herbal teas have wheat in them as filler and the tea bags may contain wheat.

Anyways, it is nice to know there is still lots of really good, healthy food that we can eat!!!

Chat soon.

Good to know about the Pepper.. I do not do the herbal teas.. I have a lot of allergies.. highly allergic to ragweed.. have to be careful.. Tried chamomile tea once and had a reaction. So I just do regular black tea. I like tea when I am not feeling well.

When I went shopping I passed on a lot of items that just said Vinegar.. if it does not tell me what kind, I will not buy.. I do not have a problem with distilled vinegar.. just have to watch the malt vinegar.. that was in the steak sauce.

Most of the convenience foods are out.. the one I miss scalloped or au gratin potatoes.. they have wheat in the sauce mix.

I am making extras when I cook from scratch.. made a huge pot of mashed potatoes so I could have left overs..

One thing about this diet. .it is healthy!
