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... :'(

A bowl of creamy potato soup (made when my granddaughter was here for a few days). I made banana bread today so will definitely taste it later this evening and maybe also have some watermelon.

If you are in the US, Mission brand corn tortillas are gluten-free. They are not tested but they are made on lines used only for corn products. I also sometimes make my own corn tortillas using MaSeCa brand masa harina.

I just took some really yummy-looking hamburger buns out of the oven (Jules Shepard's recipe with slight variations by me) but since I didn't start them until 5:30 or so, I think I'll just make a sandwich...not a burger. And a glass of wine. :P

    • Sounded like it's against the law in that state to bring in outside food to any restaurant. A simple phone call to the tavern would have told them that. Prior planning is exactly what was needed here. We don't have the right to break laws, and outside of school and jail, (with the correct paperwork),  we don't have the right to have gluten-free food everywhere we go. I'm shaking my head at the parents and how they dropped the ball here. 
    • Thought I would bring up my most recent addiction. I always loved and had MAD cravings for chocolate. Not the sweet stuff, the powder is always what I craved, the darker the better. This was in part due to extreme anemia, and huge issues with getting enough iron due to internal bleeding issues with UC (I got cravings for dirt and chocolate but would just eat the cocoa).  But I used to have a love hate issues with it, if I ate too much like more then 2 tbsp in a sitting in anything I would get sick and I would do this often eating 1/4 in mixed recipes like a sauce, mixed with egg whites, almond butter, into quick cakes, or in icecream or shakes.. I still am unsure what this was, but the processed gluten-free labeled Hershey Special Dark was the main thing I consumed back then (around this time they did not have the plain Hershey or any other cocoa on the gluten-free list). This went on for a few years and then I moved on to RAW cocoa from Big Tree Farms and this lessened the nausea and sick feeling and enabled me to eat more but I still avoided it when I was not craving it due to it making me sick.  This year funny enough I got my anemia under control with upped vitamin C and finding out what triggered my bleeding flare ups was sugars from fruit, grain carbs, and starches, I found Crio Bru. Crio Bru is a coffee replacement, but it is actually just pure cocoa nibs/beans ground up like coffee ground, they come from different origin sourced beans with different roast levels, from a smokey dark french to lighter ones with smooth or floral notes. These, these I can sit down and grind up in almond milk or in shakes, sprinkle over deserts, mix in trail mixes, eat by the handful....and I  DO NOT GET SICK. I can eat over a cup of them and be very satisfied, they are very high in fiber and saturated healthy fats, antioxidants. and various other nutrients, and smash my binge eats faster then coconut or almonds. I only wish I had found them earlier, but this brought up some other thoughts.  Why does the processed cocoa bother me SO much more then these? Is it the alkalinity of them? The dry powder like state causing them to neutralize to much acid or absorb to much liquid? Or something added in the processing? Perhaps the processed cocoa just has a much much higher histamine level, I do not know but the fact these are so much better and finally my new best friend for putting on weight is amazing. Anyone else have a chocolate issues, chocolate loves, or addictions? Or perhaps thoughts on these?
    • Had a flashback of going on vacation once without enough food, I ended up walking the 5mile round trip to a grocery store to get cartons of egg whites, fresh veggies, and almond milk. I overstock everything now when I go places due to this lol.
    • THANK YOU for the link. Read through the whole thing. Didn't eat for >24 hours and started to feel A LOT better. Still sick, but nowhere near yesterday sick.  I decided to just talk/explain in detail how sick the food made me to one of my relatives who was very understanding. She is going to explain to other relatives that I won't be able to eat the food they offer for health reasons. She took me to a farmer's market and I now have a bunch of veggies, tofu, unflavored seaweed and unflavored dried chirimen. She's going to bake potatoes for me tomorrow and boiled me a dozen fresh eggs. I didn't eat the pre-cooked store bought eggs because they had an odor that smelled like flavoring and I didn't want to take a gamble. Finally, I can eat something. Hopefully day 1 nightmare was it.
