Gluten Free Everyday Eats: Day 18

Today we were up and out of the house early!  (Well…early for summer when I am not teaching.)  I had a doctor appointment. We had to run to Costco and then another stop…and home.  Breakfast was on the run.  I had to get the kids up and out of the house much earlier than they had to be in the most recent days.  By the time I got them fed and their snack packed, we had to go!  So breakfast?  Yeah.  That was more like a large cup of coffee. 😀

What do you do for breakfast to go when you are late?  

Do you have two different breakfast plans?  

I do!  One for quick-grab and go breakfasts and the others for more leisurely mornings.   During the school year, I have a list of things that I tend to grab for breakfast.  I honestly am not a breakfast kind of person at 5:00AM – so I tend to take something I can eat at my desk at 7:00AM when I get to work.  As for the weekends or later mornings?  This is the list of breakfast foods I like.

Today…I kind of blew it on all breakfast fronts.  😀  




Breakfast:  Water and a cup of coffee on the go.  

Snack:  Gluten free beef jerky and a glass of water.  NOT PICTURED:  handfuls of raspberries and a couple of strawberries from my Costco run. 😀

Gluten Free Everday Eats:  Day 18

Lunch:  Seriously, I am eating this tomorrow.  Don’t be annoyed with the repetitive meal plan but MAN this was tasty!  I had roasted chicken with a tiny dab (seriously – a little bit!) of cream cheese between two cucumber slices.  The huge red grapes hit the spot too.  Water to drink.

Day 18 lunch


Dinner:  I had a huge salad, a 1/2 cup of steamed sticky rice and 1 grilled chicken thigh (not pictured).  Water to drink.

Are you getting sick of my meals yet?
Got any  inspiration for me?

This was taken during my favorite part of the day.  Well…second favorite.  I loved watching my imps play with their doll house for over an hour together.

Happy GF Days, All – 




  1. Breakfast on the go? Fortunately, I usually don’t have to go anywhere since I work from home in the a.m.s, but if I did have to grab something it’d probably be a banana and a handful of nuts. I used to be a “breakfast immediately” kind of person, meaning within 15 minutes of getting out of bed, I was having breakfast. Probably a holdover from when I had to go to an office. Now that a couple years have passed since vacating my cubicle, not so much. I can be more flexible as to when (or if) I eat breakfast (but I almost always do).

    Day 18 breakfast was scrambled eggs, a banana-blueberry muffin, half a peach and coffee. Lunch was homemade tacos before hubby went to work second shift. Dinner was whatever leftovers were in the fridge.

  2. I just got some of that Costco beef jerky – we love it too!
