Gluten Free Everyday Eats – Day 29 & 30

Posted on by .

What is happening to me?  I have developed the exhausted version of myself in the end of July?  Not good!  Time for some R & R – although I think that might just happen late next week as now we have some more OT/PT appointments this week for Zoe.  The good news is:  We are doing all that we can to make sure she is ready to go for Kindergarten this fall.  She’s so excited!

So excited, in fact, that she’s been announcing that as soon as Kindergarten is over, I should “get ready” because she will be “off for college then, Mom”.  Egad!  Please don’t let time fly that quickly by.

Day 29

Doctor appointments and craziness meant dinner out.  My dinner picture includes a shot of the girls Tofu Agadashi (my order came without the broth as they used soy instead of tamari – rats!).  It was still tasty.  And I packed some small portable gluten free soy sauce packets in my purse, I was totally ready!

Breakfast:  Turkey wrapped in a Rudi’s tortilla.  Coffee (aka “life blood”)

Lunch:  Recipe testing!  I made a fresh loaf of a recipe I am working on (Quinoa & Honey – gluten free, of course).  Made a sandwich….and forgot to take picture as we raced out the door to our PT appointment.

Dinner:  Sushi!  (I had tamage, spicy scallop handroll, California handroll and some agadashi todu (minus the agadashi…LOL)  This photo shows the agadashi tofu that the girls ate.  Yum!

Day 30

Breakfast:  Did I eat breakfast?  Ha!  That would explain why I devoured lunch!  No breakfast!

Lunch:  Shared an Udi’s Uncured Pepperoni Pizza.  Water.

Today is the last day of this adventure.  I’m learning a lot about my own eating patterns.  I can see where I could improve. Overall, doing this has made me seriously curious about what others are eating everyday.  Bloggers tend to post something that strikes us or hits our fancy.  I tend to post when I can – but usually after working on a recipe of sorts.

My current recipe endeavor – the perfect quinoa & honey loaf – is off to a great start.  Now  just need more testers!  I wish you all lived closer.  Save me some calories and give me some input!  :D

Gluten Free Everyday Eats – Days 25, 26, 27, 28!

GFEveryday

Oh my!  I feel like the rug got yanked out from underneath my feet at the end of the week last week.  Life became very busy and I not only forgot to take pictures of the food/meals I ate, but I didn’t even get a chance to log on to the blog to upload anything or post.  Ah yes, such is life for all of us sometimes.  Between playdates, summer camp, doctor appointments, MAJOR spring clearing/cleaning (in July…LOL), and birthday parties, life just moves on.  It’s wonderful and fast, fast fast!  I have a huge list of to-do yet to be accomplished before school starts up again in the fall.  

So….. I might have to recreate my menus for you based on an app I’ve been using to track my calorie consumption (MyFitnessPal – do you use it?).  I have been LOVING the fact that it contains MANY MANY gluten free menu items and modified foods.  I can easily find my soy-no whip coffee or Rudi’s tortillas, etc.  It rocks!  (I have no affiliation with this app/site…..it was introduced to me by a girlfriend who uses it too.)

So…let’s figure out these meals:

Thursday, Day 25

Breakfast:  Nothing (late for the day as usual!)

Lunch:  Chicken & Cheese rolls (lunch meat rolled around a slice of cheddar cheese), apple and Greek yogurt.

Dinner:  (Take out/Wendy’s) Baked potato with chives (no sour cream/no butter), water and a white peach.

Snack:  Late night (obviously, dinner was not enough!)  Maple Sugar & Chile Popcorn (yum!)

Sunday, Day 28

Breakfast:  Nothing  – we were racing out the door for a birthday party!

Lunch:  California sushi hand roll x 2

Dinner:  Sausages & eggs, apple slicesday28dinner

Snack:  None

 

Well – now I hope I can manage to stay on track for the last couple days of this month!  I just pulled a fresh loaf of bread out of the oven (Honey & Quinoa Flake) that smells divine.  I might just have to cut a slice for my snack.  If it tastes as well as it smells, I will be in heaven! 

Hope you are all well –

Gluten Free Everyday Eats – Day 24

Today was a day of firsts.  Zoe announced at lunch that she thinks Luke Skywalker is cute….and so is another boy in her day camp class.  (!!! already!??)  Rory has taken to doing everything in hyper-speed mode or in her own little imaginative world.  I think she might just need a seat belt for the dinner table…LOL.

It was a busy day, I’m glad it is over.  I’m looking forward to some time tomorrow with a friend. It’s going to be a great day!

GFEveryday

Breakfast?    Oh yes, that meal that I sacrificed in order to get the dog walked (2 miles!) and the girls out the door with lunches, etc on time.  However, i did stop and get a soy milk latte.  (No, I am not dairy free, but I love the taste of soy milk in my latte.)  Since that comes in at 260 calories, I’m thinking it totally counts as “breakfast”, right? 

 

Lunch:  Not pictured?  A handful of grapes and another of raspberries.  Water.  Pictured?  Leftover rice-cooker polenta with some lunch meat on top.  Yummy. :D

Dinner:  Chicken kebabs (with mushrooms, red onion, red pepper, zucchini) served over steamed jasmine rice.  Watermelon (not pictured) for dessert.

I have no idea what’s on the menu for tomorrow.  I do have some feta cheese and a ton of watermelon (it was buy one get one at the Korean market).  I’m thinking a watermelon-feta salad should definitely be there….the rest of it?  Bah.  That will come together tomorrow. :D

Good night, all!
