Hi,

I have been having a hard time trying to find new meals to eat. I was wondering what you eat for breakfast, lunch, dinner during the week. Im hoping that the listed meals will give me and others some ideas on what they can eat.

THis is a typical day for me:

Breakfast: polenta, scrambled eggs

Lunch: tuna/salmon salad

Dinner: meat and potatos

THanks in advance.

Boy do I miss a regular pizza slice

Welcome!!

Breakfast: Kinnikinnick toast, over-easy eggs, tea.

Lunch: ostrich burger, veggies.

Dinner: Tinkyada penne with veggies (broccoli, yellow squash, beets -- look for a variety of bright colors) and Italian chicken sausage sliced, olive oil and basil. Toss it all together ... looks very elegant but is very easy.

Snack: bottle of carrot juice, almond butter on a spoon :ph34r: LOL

Regular day looks like:

Breakfast:

eggs or egg white scramble

turkey bacon (wellshire farms has a good one)

smoothie of soy milk, protein powder,banana and frozen berries

snack - peanut butter on a rice cake or Lara bar

Lunch: roast chicken breast with lettuce, avocado, tomatoes etc or homemade soup (lately butternut squash as its in season) with a light salad or roast salmon with roasted veggies and a sweet potato

Snack: some fruit, maybe some nuts, or gluten free crackers

Dinner: I cook a lot, so we always have variety...last week we had osso bucco with risotto, lamb stew with quinoa, chicken in a garlic white wine tomato sauce with brown rice, sauteed tilapia with quinoa pilaf and roast carrots. I usually serve a large salad with dinner.

after dinner: soy ice cream, or frozen mango slices

Lots and lots of dishes are gluten-free - but I've only been at this a month and in the beginning all I could think of to cook were gluteny foods! Its that "because you can't have it" thing! Good luck

I will give you an example of my day.. such as today..

breakfast.. me and Colin shared French Toast made from gluten free bread.. added cinnamon and a bit of nutmeg to the egg mixture.

lunch.. Dr. Pragers potato crusted fish sticks! love them!!

dinner... pork chops.. skillet made with grill seasoning for b/f.. made with sauerkraut for me.. roasted potatoes with Wegmans basting oil.. and frozen mixed veggies.

snack.. depending on my mood later.. popcorn, or ice cream (turkey hill gelati) :ph34r:

Hope some of these ideas help.. there is really a ton of things to have.. you will get used to it.. read some of the recipe threads.. tarnalberry and carrie have tons of them on here and the ones I have tried are fantastic..

Breakfast for me is usually fruit & nuts & maybe PB & homemade jelly (no corn syrup) on Lundberg rice chips.

snacks: V8 juice, 100% grape juice-diluted, nuts, fruit, dried fruit for on the go, fritos - for when I feel like a treat

Lunch: at the moment I am into kale & broccoli, so I usually have a salad with; chopped kale, grated carrot, broccoli, minced red onion, chopped chicken (from my stash in the freezer), tomatoes - really like the tiny little grape ones, red-yellow-orange bell peppers, jicama. This is my favorite salad at the moment. I am trying to switch to an olive oil & vinegar dressing as per Dr Oz on the Oprah show, who says we should get rid of corn syrup & saturated fat.

Yesterday for lunch I did not have my usual salad so I had: one apple, one tangerine, broccoli, walnuts, grape tomatoes & PB on a Lundberg brown Rice cake.

yesterday, Mid morning snack was V8 juice.

Dinner: Tonight it is a stir fry with cleaning out the fridge leftovers: broccoli, grape tomatoes, red bell pepper, garlic, (I think I am out of onions - not sure yet!), celery & maybe green onions, leftover rice, a can of diced tomatoes & a can of crab meat, I might add in a tablespoon of tomato paste. I will have leftovers so I will probably freeze one serving for later & maybe have the same thing for lunch tomorrow - or breakfast!!!

I am also baking the leftover sweet potatoes that were on the counter.

I also like to use mashed sweet potato for a base for frozen entrees for lunch or to eat when you get home & have no time to cook, these are also good to take to a friends house etc. I put the sweet potato in the bottom of a small pyrex glass dish that has a plastic lid & then I add veggies and meat & label & freeze. This can go straight to the microwave

Here are some ideas that I PM'd to a few folks who are also avoiding dairy, eggs and soy. If you can have the dairy, eggs and soy, you can still make them - and probably easier.

Breakfasts:

Homemade pancakes made with egg replacer.

Homemade waffles, made with egg replacer and coconut oil (prevents sticking)

Trader Joe's uncured turkey bacon (or Applegate Farms brand)

Isernio's chicken breakfast sausage

Smoothies with rice milk, fruit and rice protein powder

Rice cakes with whatever topping - used to use sunflower seed butter

Homemade muffins with flax seed meal and egg replacer

Homemade "sausage" - ground turkey seasoned with salt, garlic and italian herbs, mixed up the night before and fried in little patties

Sunflower seed butter on apples or bananas

gluten-free cereal with rice milk

Leftover chicken or turkey and a piece of fruit

Lunches:

Chicken salad with balsamic vinaigrette

Taco salad - seasoned meat and salsa, Soyco foods rice based sour cream substitute (no soy)

Lettuce wraps - lunch meat wrapped in lettuce leaves with mustard

Sandwiches on Enjoy Life Brown rice tortillas

Leftovers from dinner - meats, soups, casseroles

Dinners:

Roast chicken with baked potatoes - experiment with different types of seasoning -garlic, or rosemary and lime juice, or Italian herbs

Meatloaf and mashed potatoes - use crispy rice cereal for breadcrumbs, don't need egg

Baked chicken breasts with Italian dressing marinade

Tinkyada pasta with homemade meatball, meat sauce or marinara sauce. Also with no sauce, but chopped tomatoes, garlic and olive oil. Sheep milk cheese if you can get away with it. (I could after avoiding all dairy for 7 years.)

Chicken simmered in sauce, served over rice. Sauce ideas: enchilada sauce, homemade BBQ sauce, coconut milk with curry powder, salt, raisins and chopped apples, sweet and sour sauce - pineapple juice, vinegar, ginger, sesame oil

Taco salad

Stews - any meat cooked with onions, potatoes and carrots, garlic, salt, pepper

Vegetable soup - start with chicken broth and tomato sauce and add chicken, onions, carrots, zucchini, garlic, Italian herbs and ?

Chicken noodle soup - use Tinkyada or favorite pasta

Chicken and noodles - thicken chicken broth with sweet rice flour, use favorite pasta

Chicken and dumplings - use rice flour mix and Spectrum shortening, follow recipe in Betty Crocker or Better Homes and Gardens cookbook

Grilled chicken, marinated in balsamic vinaigrette

Swedish Meatballs with rice or boiled potatoes

Pizza with no cheese - Trader Joe's turkey bacon and pineapple is the best topping

Turkey pot pie - make crust with rice flour mix and Spectrum shortening, thicken gravy with sweet rice flour

Breakfast- egg, toast, coffee

Pancakes by Kinikinnick

Waffles

Kinik bagel

Peanut butter toast

Lunch- Kinik bread sandwich. Turkey, lettuce, tomato, mayo

Tuna

Meatloaf

peanut butter/jelly

lettuce and tomato (no bacon)

Beef hotdog

OR- Kinik pizza crust with olive oil and garlic salt. Bake in oven.

Prepare seeded tomatoes, olive oil, balsamic vinegar, minced garlic and lots and lots of basil.

Use a pizza cutter to slice baked pizza crust. Scoop mountains of your "salad" onto slices of bread.

OR- Nachos- no cheese

OR- Tinkyada pasta with sauce or no sauce just olive oil basil... The recipe above.

Dinner- Oh, anything really. Tonight we had lamb medallions. I put a paste of minced garlic, mint, thyme, coarse salt, fresh gound pepper on each medallion. Broiled in oven.

Asparagus with diced onions and lots of parsley and a dash of olive oil- lightly cooked.

OR- last night we had chicken pot pies. We had the leftover pot pie ingredients over rice for lunch today.

OR- Fish. I do not like fish, but do prepare it weekly. None of us like it. Every week, I purchase a fish. Something. Whatever. We have given up. We like none of it. But we are always being told by the media that it is healthy. So, I buy it. I prepare it. I manage to eat it once a week. Flounder is what I purchased last week. It was terrible. I would love to know what fish is good.

We always have a salad. Every night. I love salad and my daughter is the one in charge of making them. Tonight she used red leaf lettuce and japanese cucumbers we purchased at a farm along with tomatoes from the same farm. It is so refreshing to eat a salad at the end of a day.

For snacks we usually have fresh fruit, vegetables corn tortillas, nuts, dried fruit, and chocolate somewhere in our home. We have always eaten mainly fresh foods so this comes naturally to us to be satisfied snacking this way. Others will prefer potato chips, but they really make me ill. I like how I feel after eating fresh foods.

I wasn't a fan of fish growing up, we had fish night every Friday and I didn't like it at all. Recently I have tried fresh Atlantic Salmon and I love it! Very good. Fresh Atlantic Salmon was easy to find and cheap where I lived on PEI. I also like Haddack and I'm sure it would taste good deep fried or baked in the Kinnikinnick bread coating mix with tarter sauce. Here are some recipes that I have enjoyed:

Steamed Salmon

2-3 fresh salmon fillets

2-3 shallots, finely minced

2 cloves garlic, finely minced

2 red chilies, cut into small rounds

2 Tbs. Thai Kitchen Premium Fish Sauce

1 Tbs. Brown sugar

2 Tbs. fresh lime juice

2 Tablespoons basil leaves

Put all ingredients in a steam bowl or dish. Steam for about 20 minutes. Vegetable steamers work well.

Barbecued Salmon

½ cup Barbecue sauce (I use Kraft Onion)

1 salmon portion or fillet

½ teaspoon basil

Barbeque:

Create a pan out of tin foil (I use about 3 small sheets of tin foil) Place the salmon, sauce, and basil in the tin foil and cook on the barbeque for about 15-20 minutes.

Oven:

Place tin foil in a baking pan. Place salmon on top of the tin foil and pour the barbeque sauce over the salmon. Sprinkle the basil on top of the salmon. Bake at 350 for 15 minutes.

Baked Salmon

1-2 Salmon portions

garlic, minced

green onion, minced

Place salmon on baking pan, spinkle garlic and green onion on top and bake for about 15 minutes.

Carriefaith, thank you for the recipes. It is probably somewhat my fault at this point. I am so tired of trying to make the fish taste good that I've stopped looking for interesting recipes. I need to put in a little extra effort and take the time to make the fish more appealing, I suppose. I will try the atlantic salmon recipe you posted. I saved it to my favorites so that I can bring it up quickly. I'm not very hopeful, but I'll try to give a little extra effort!

Taco salad - seasoned meat and salsa, Soyco foods rice based sour cream substitute (no soy)

Is the Soyco sour cream really soy free and casein free? I've been doing tacos without cheese or sour cream...getting one back would be AWESOME!

I'm not a fan of white fish. Grilled or broiled salmon is the best way to go, if you don't want to take the time to make sauces and do all the rest of that. Ahi's good too, but easy to dry out and expensive if you don't live in HI. :P White fish just doesn't have a lot of it's own taste - even halibut is 'eh' without taking some time - and all of them are fairly easy to mess up. Make sure not to overcook the fish (you can check it by texture, if you don't have a probe thermometer, it should flake easily, but not at the drop of a hat). We'll sometimes use salmon in stri-fries, if we're not grilling it.
