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!

GFEveryday

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?

Breakfast: + Lunch:   Breakfast “pizza” (eggs, sausage), fruit (cantaloupe, raspberries, blueberries, grapes), avocado, etc.

Day 21 Breakfast

Dinner:  Pizza and Salad.  

Day 21 dinner

 No pictures of snacks today.  I had an apple and some grapes.  Water to drink.

Gluten Free Everyday Eats – Day 20

Posted on by .
Day 20 breakfast

Today while playing outside with the girls, I thought I would kick back for a bit.  I brought my cell phone outside to check email etc while the girls played.  It’s cold here in the mornings – so they were wearing sweatshirts.  Not long after playing in the sun, however, they took off the sweaters.  It meant a pile of sweatshirts next to the coffee.  I put my cell phone on top of their sweatshirts…and not long after I heard the unmistakeable gurgle of something being dropped.  O.o  

I couldn’t save it.  It was completely fried.

My stomach churned when I did a little reading online and saw that Verizon was going to charge us $550 for a replacement phone.  (TOTALLY NOT happening.)  So Plan B – bring it in to Apple Store (we had purchased extended warranty there) and get out the old cell phones to charge (just in case).  Seriously?  I’ve never been so happy to have purchased an extended warranty ($99/2 years) from a company in my life.  Phone was replaced for $50!  Thank goodness. 

However, this means that I have pictures of breakfast yesterday (Saturday – Day 20) but no other meals.  :D  

GFEveryday

Breakfast:  Homemade migas (eggs, tortillas, roasted veggies, onions/garlic), a few chicken sausages (I had “help” eating mine and ended up with just one), fruit, coffee and water.

Day 20 breakfast

Lunch:  A white peach and some water.  (Breakfast was huge!)

Dinner:  Bi-bim-bap and water.  YUM!  (Do you know what bi-bim-bap is?  It’s basically blanched/seasoned (salt and sesame oil) veggies with steamed rice and a fried egg on top.  Common veggies are:  mung beans, carrots, spinach and burdock.  I have not found any of the traditional red chile paste that is put on top that is gluten free.  I can’t wait until I do!  It adds so much to the flavor.  And while sriracha *is* gluten free, it is not the same flavor as the traditional Korean red paste that accompanies bibimbap.  My search continues.)  :D

I now have a functioning phone, but nothing is set up and ready to go.  Maybe that is the 2nd biggest pain?  The first was the freak out about having to figure out replacement plan if necessary.   The second?  Definitely resetting everything on it.  :S  Alas, I did not have my phone set to back up everything.  Oh well.  Live and learn, right?

Happy Weekend!
