Gluten Free Everyday Eats – Day 23

Posted on by .

So today I was at least with it enough to take pictures.  My lunch today was the same kind of thing as yesterday – grits/polenta made in the rice cooker while we were out today.  Unfortunately, today they came out a bit lumpier than yesterday.  Giving it a good mix and stir for a while broke up most of the lumps, but not all.  Ah well, good thing it was just food for me and not for guests. :D

Breakfast: a banana and a glass of water on the way out the door.

Lunch:  rice-cooker grits with some leftover Italian turkey sausage.  Water to drink.

day 23 lunch

Dinner:  Baked eggplant (I ate eggplant!!), shredded romaine lettuce and a half of a grilled chicken breast.  Dressing:  fig balsamic vinegar and a splash of olive oil.  

day 23 dinner

 

I’ve only eaten eggplant a few times before.  Mainly when we hosted an exchange student from Turkey.  She will agree with me when I say:  she can NOT cook.  Ha!  Sadly, she was also my main eat-eggplant pusher and it kind of turned me off for a while.  I made these baked eggplant pieces by peeling it, slicing them (1/2 inch or so), dredging them in seasoned flour, then egg wash, and finally tossed in seasoned gluten free bread crumbs.  It was tasty!  Thank goodness for loaves of bread that I can’t finish.  They make great bread crumbs.  :D

Enjoy you Wednesday!

Gluten Free Everyday Eats – Day 22

Posted on by .

Sooooooo I apparently took no photos today.  ??  Honestly, it’s most likely because I spent the day running around.   Sorry, guys.  But my meal wasn’t anything exciting!

Breakfast:  Soy-mocha latte with a girlfriend.  (Ok, I know this is not really “breakfast”…but it was mine!)

Lunch:  Grits (made in a rice cooker while we were out in the morning) and a scrambled egg.  A white peach and water.

Dinner:  Out!  I had a Spicy Chicken Salad (no cheese) and water.  It totally hit the spot!

Gluten Free Everyday Eats – Day 21

Posted on by .

I’m hoping the end of the weekend also means the end of my technology nightmares.  Sadly, I think I also have forgotten to snap a photo of lunch today (breakfast was a mocha-soy latte, I don’t think that counts, right?)  I knew there would be challenges to my 31 days of food in photos…but gesh.

On Sunday, July 21, I made a huge brunch for the family.  I love Sunday mornings! What about you?  Is your breakfast different on the weekend than during the week?
