What's For Breakfast Today?

Recommended Posts

Had to fast for bloodwork so had a late breakfast. But it was worth the wait - Eggs Benedict! I have not had that for awhile. I used gorgeous fresh farm eggs, local ham, a gluten-free bagel and made delicious hollandaise.

Granny Smith apples with peanut butter this morning for us. Very simple, but we have alot to get done today.

GET OUT! That's what I had for lunch. No wonder I'm so hungry now.

Are you a teacher? I know, it's hard to get back on schedule.

Am baking blonde brownies now. Will have with my coffee in a few when they're done. Can't wait (I know, I'm being bad right now, too. Will start back with healthy breakfasts Monday when school starts).

My first post!

Anyway, I discovered a Hispanic supermarket not far from home and came home with a 2 pound bag of masa harina and a tortilla press. I've had fresh corn tortillas with melted monterey jack cheese for the last three breakfasts, and a side fresh fruit. Now to prepare some interesting/healthy toppings to keep in the fridge. These tortillas are so easy to make (youtube) and taste nothing like those from the supermarket.

Within the same three miles, I feel lucky that there is a large Asian market, Indian market, and Hispanic market...a dream come true for those who love to cook, and cook gluten free.

This morning I had enough energy to really make my girls breakfast so I made them almond flour pancakes, breakfast sausage and cut up watermelon and grapes. Now my oldest is running around saying that the healthy breakfast is making her run faster since she is alot healthier now.

Welcome! I love making fresh corn tortillas too. I had a dinner party where one of my friends claimed he hated corn tortillas but he LOVED the fresh ones I made. They are a completely different texture/taste from the premade ones.

I'm a teachers assistant. I've had so much happen this summer! I also got moved to a new school and I'm having some problems with anxiety. My eating has been way off because of this. Most people I know start to get back on a schedule, but I usually jump back in!

Oh, I'm a little in love with the gluten free rice crispies. I've been eating them like popcorn though, plain or w/ PB as a snack, rather than as cereal.

Today I had appam (Indian rice pancakes), carrot/cauliflower curry, and apricot mousse (pureed overripe apricot with a touch of gelatin to make it firm up.). Oh, and piece of chocolate while I made the curry and pancakes.


2/2010 Malabsorption becomes dramatically noticable

3/2010 Negative IgA EMA; negative IgA TTG

4/2010 Negative biopsy

5/2010 Elimination diet; symptoms begin to resolve on gluten-free diet round two (10 days)

5/2010 Diagnosed gluten sensitive based on weakly positive repeat IgA & IgG TTGs and dietary response; decline capsule endoscopy.

Now, what to do about my cookbook in progress? Make it gluten-free?

I taught my 5 year old how to make cookies last night so we had the snickerdoodles she made and a smoothie with whatever I found in the fridge (grapes, watermelon, pineapple chunks, strawberries, a little bit of grapefruit juice, black cherry fruit preserves and peanut butter).
