What Did You Eat Today?

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

It's easy to miss what we can't have anymore, but personally I think I am eating a higher quality of food since going gluten free. What meals are you eating right now that you absolutely love?

I used to order cheap pastas and chicken at restaurants, but not anymore. Today, I went to a local restaurant with coworkers, and I had:

a baked potato

steamed broccoli

garden salad, oil and vinegar on the side

a ribeye steak, rare!

OMG, so good. I never would have ordered a rare steak two years ago, but I loved it. Let's get some inspiration--what are you eating that's to die for?

Right at this very minute I'm eating a slice of my leftover b-day cake from Mr. Ritts bakery... a chocolate-peanut butter sacchertorte... So much for eating "better" - it's absolutely delicious but hardly healthy!! :P

Hmmm...I don't think anything I've eaten today is "to die for" but it's all very healthy. :)

Hot n creamy rice cereal w/ stevia

hazelnuts

mushrooms, garlic, green beans, asparagus stir fry

potato

macadamia nut butter

chicken

steamed swiss chard

blueberries

Imagine corn soup w/ cilantro

eggplant w/ tomato

As you can see...no sweets. :(

Since going gluten free, I've become a more creative/adventurous cook!

Breakfast: 2 slices Glutino Flax seed bread with almond butter

Lunch: leftover veggie stirfry from last night

Dinner: romaine lettuce, kale, spinach sauteed in olive oil, salt/pepper with thai noodles

Snack: tea and 2 Kinnikinnick double chocolate almond cookies...YUMMY!!!

As I write this I'm baking choclate chip, crisp rice cookies(gluten-free, of course) :)

Well, for brunch I had a stirfry of ground chicken, lots of onion, carrots and mushrooms. For a snack some mixed nuts and later some dark chocolate.

And for supper another stir fry, consisting of beef strips, onion, mushrooms and brussel sprouts.

Water to drink, and lots of supplements to regenerate my depleted body, so I get some energy back.

And yes, I actually love those stir fries, and think they're to die for! And tomorrow morning I'll put on my crock pot with lots of veggies (rutabaga, onion, carrots, leek, celery, green beans) and chicken thighs, so supper will be ready when I get home from work (I babysit two little boys two days a week). Yummy!!!!!!!!!! I love food from the crockpot, especially when I am coming home tired, and the smell greets me when entering my house, and I can just sit down and eat with my family, instead of first having to cook.

Day just started for me over here... yesterday I had:

Breakfast: rice crackers topped with goats cheese, olives and oregano, nuked to melt the cheese

banana, pear and dates cut in chunks and mixed to make a fruit salad

darjeeling tea - a whole pot :D

Lunch: two more bananas, raisins and nuts - I was in a hurry

Tea

Dinner: Huge salad of leafy greens, olive oil, lemon juice, a bit of salt and herbs, with smoked salmon on top, a couple more dates as dessert

Rooibos tea, with cardamom, yum!

Late night meal, what can I say, I didn't have a proper lunch...another salad, but this time with a can of tuna. Probably some raisins somewhere as well, because I eat them every day!

I enjoyed all my food immensely!

When I eat out, I do eat better, but not at home! I just made gluten-free mac and cheese cause I am sick and I wanted one of my old favorites.....LOL, so not too healthy at home, but when I do go out, there aren't a lot of "bad" foods that are Gluten-free, so I eat a salad, meat, and veggies, really a much better mean for you!!!

Rice milk (vanilla) mmmmmmmmmm

2 Carmal Gluten-free Casein-free rice cake

bowl of carrots

Lunch-

1 bowl of Amy's gfdf soup

Almost a whole bag of gummi bears! :P:blink::rolleyes: (I was really craving something chewy and sweet. I really wanted those spice drops, you know, they are candy, like minty chewy, sugar covered? But I didn't know for sure if they were gluten free-as I am new to this)

Snack-

Apple (a HUGE green one!)

Haven't had dinner yet! But I'm excited because I have some smoked salmon waiting for me in the refridgorator....and more VANILLA RICE MILK-I can't get enough of that!!!!!!!!

SO yes, I am really enjoying my new diet-although I miss cookies, and the gluten/dairy/egg free one I tried gave me a bad bad bad reaction! But when finals are over, I will DEF. be in the kitchen a lot coming up with new dishes!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! EXCITING!!!

Today I had a blueberry smoothie, rice crisps, a salad, orange juice, and tuna tacos. I made up my own recipe for tuna tacos the other day and I was quite impressed. Here it is!

2-3 tablespoons olive oil

1 yellow or sweet onion, diced

3-4 garlic cloves, diced

4-5 stalks of celery, diced

4-5 green onions, diced (optional)

1-2 tomatoes, diced (optional)

1 can of tuna

1 bottle of salsa

corn taco shells

Cook all vegetables in olive oil until they are soft, then add tuna. Place the vegetable and tuna mix into a taco and pour salsa over it. This recipe makes quite a bit of food and I make some up for lunch the next day! They are really yummy!

I'll probably have some french fries before I go to bed!

This morning I had Whole Foods gluten-free Bakeshop Cinnamon Raisin bread w/Smart Balance and orange juice. For lunch, my usual large salad w/ lots of veggies, some Lay's Natural Ruffles and ice water. This afternoon I made a batch of Gourmet Magazine's gluten-free choc. chip cookies. They turned out really good and I ate about 4 or 5 of them :rolleyes: . Tonight for dinner, I'm making Tinkyada spaghetti w/ meatballs. The meatballs are actually in the oven now.

This morning so far I've had: apple with hazelnut butter; homemade hot chocolate with unsweetened cocoa, hazelnut milk and a little agave nectar.

For lunch I plan to have: Tinkyada penne with a meat sauce made with very lean ground beef and crushed tomatoes.

For dinner I plan to have more ground beef, some brown rice and a veggie (not sure which yet).

Snacks: Think Organic bar, banana, rice chips.

It's an odd day, and I'll have to leave my house at 4:00, so will be eating all the above early (except the snacks)...I may also grab something out, but what will depend on where I am, lol.

I usually have breakfast at work - so it has to be quick and portable. I toast rice bread and top with cashew or almond butter and a little bit of jelly. (also known as a PB&J!) Lunch is usually yesterdays dinner's left overs (last night was orange/ginger pork medallions, green beans and one of my favorite little secrets - McCain Smiley Fries... love 'em!). Tonight we're having breakfast for dinner... bacon, eggs and Alexia morning fries (hashbrowns).
