I think I spent most of the day either walking the dog (6 miles today), playing with kids (all day!), or in the kitchen (cooking, cleaning). It was a wonderful day.
A few questions and answer from email to address today too.
Quinoa: Protein or a grain? Actually, I’m going to cut/paste Cheryl’s (Registered Dietician/Super Blogger) response her from her email. Neither are correct. LOLQuinoa is technically a seed rather than a grain. So it’s a protein, but it’s also a carb. It’s got around 8 grams of protein per cup. So if you’re having a cup of quinoa with, say, beans or maybe veggies and almonds sprinkled on top, that would work well. If you’re just having a small serving and not having any other protein with your meal, you’ll probably get hungry again pretty quickly. I love quinoa, and most people find it filling because it’s a good source of fiber, too. -Cheryl And now…on to the Everyday Eats…
Brunch: I skipped breakfast today…. the kids slept in and so did I. We didn’t get up until 7:50! And then we were off walking the dog (2 miles) and to the Farmer’s Market, etc. I had a leaf-wrapped burger with cheese and bacon. And a giant serving of blueberries. Okay… I didn’t eat all of the berries in the serving bowl – but man! They are tasty.
Dinner: Homemade porketta (Minnesota thing, I think – basically a nicely seasoned (highly seasoned/herb crusted) boneless pork roast), salad, cantaloupe and more blueberries. One goat cheese cracker topped with a little leftover crab salad. Water.
I did have a “snack” – taste test of my third batch of goat cheese crackers. Sadly, I burned them while making hummus with and for my 2 year old (soon to be 3 in two weeks!). However, they made a nice base for a little leftover crab salad. (botton left of my dinner plate).
Hope you all had a wonderful GF Day….
