Gluten Free Everyday Eats – Day 10

Plugging along.  My order for Sister’s Baking Co granola arrived today (!!! Hello?  Super speedy!).  The package arrived at the same time my husband arrived home from work.  We all sat around the kitchen table snacking on granola, white peaches and drinking some water.  Needless to say my order is down one package (servings for 6….and 3 of us (mostly 2 of us) had *no* problem polishing it off.  The rest of the packs have been stowed away or they would have been in jeopardy too.  I have one set aside to put in the car console.  I’m hoping it will last.  :D

 
GFEveryday  My meals were pretty typical today (minus the polished off bag of granola with the family….).  You can see I really need to work on getting the fruit and veg into my meals.  I think I’m a produce snob.  If it tastes great, you can’t stop me from eating it.  If it is even slightly not-great?  Meh.  I’ll pass.  Seriously, I need to get over this.  :D

 

Breakfast today for everyone was cereal.  I had Cinnamon Chex.  Weirdly enough, when I eat this cereal I find myself hungry within an hour or two for some bizarre reason.  So even though I love it, it doesn’t hit my breakfast rotation often.

Day 10 Breakfast

Lunch:  Egg and veg scramble:  Sugar snap peas, onions, garlic, red pepper strips and some eggs.  Served with two Rudi’s tortillas (charred just the way we love them) and water.  I also ate some grapes and blueberries -but just a couple handfuls.

Day 10 Lunch

Snack:  Granola!  Water and a couple slice of a white peach I cut up for the kids.  A couple more grapes and blueberries.

Day 10

Dinner:  3 Spam Musubi (or at least what this girl makes at home and calls “Spam Musubi” – I’ve never been to Hawaii but I have eaten it here (with wheat-free tamari) in a few restaurants.  Hard to find the gluten free version, so I make it at home.  It tastes so good!  I also ate some “salad” (chopped up Romaine lettuce really) and a few grapes.  Water all around.

Day 10 Dinner

Tomorrow we are off to pick up the girls new eyeglasses.  I’ve never been more astounded by someone’s joy in all my life.  I remember getting glasses and being teased as a kid.  Now both of my girls will be wearing glasses.  The youngest gets the pleasure of being one week away from her third birthday and sick to boot.  But they are both rather curious and excited.  I hope their generation is kinder than mine.  It’s a little heartbreaking to know they need glasses but at the same time, what a relief, right?  Now I know they will be seeing even better and if that is all we face?  Eye glasses?  Good grief!  What a ridiculous worry in light of what others face daily.

After the eye doctor?  We have some party planning.  It’s My Love’s birthday tomorrow.  No cake in sight nor even on the horizon.  At least I bought some heavy whipping cream today.  I will be able to do something with the million blueberries in the refrigerator?  Maybe a blueberry pie for his party cake?  Guess I will have to wait and see what I work out.  

Happy Wednesday, All!

    I made meatloaf for dinner (using quinoa flakes as the binder), and we had that along with a baked sweet potato for me and a regular potato for hubby, and steamed broccoli. I ate another couple banana-chocolate muffins made the previous day somewhere in there, with a cup of soymilk. Other drinks were coffee, tea, and water. I think breakfast was an egg in some form. Oh yes, now I remember. Lunch was at a Mexican restaurant with a friend. Shredded chicken (basically what they put in their chicken tacos, I just skip the shell in any form), rice, beans, shredded lettuce, chopped tomatoes, sliced black olives.

      I’m glad I’m not the only one who has to think about it to remember what I ate! :D
