Pasta and ChEEZE
I've never made anything like this before, and it turned out AMAZING! I wasn't expecting it to be so delicious, and I didn't write any quantities down. So, following is my best memory of what I did. I highly recommend noodles made with lentils. They taste good, they hold together, their flavour doesn't overwhelm dishes, and they make you feel really full. I recommend you look for noodles that aren't mixed with rice, as we tend to get enough of that in our diet.
I hesitated for quite some time about buying an Instant Pot. I try not to fill my kitchen with electric gadgets that end up in landfills. I seriously considered buying a stainless steel pressure cooker (to replace the aluminum one that was passed down in my family) instead (because it would last forever). I finally decided it was worth it to combine a rice cooker, slow cooker, and pressure cooker in one device. I WAS NOT WRONG! It takes a little bit of work to get into the habit of using it, but then it makes life incredibly easy. All the convenience of using a pressure cooker without any of the fear of a small explosion in your kitchen!
For leftovers, I have a small collection of thermoses I choose from to carry them to work. If I pre-warm the thermos with hot water, my lunch is always piping hot, even if I eat it late.
For the chili, I used this recipe, with the following modifications:
Salmon and Carrot Salad
The neat thing about this meal, besides it being delicious, is that it is FODMAP-friendly.
The salad was made with:
Carrot Fries! I used this recipe, with the following modifications:
What I Eat
I want to give you an idea of how to eat healthfully on a restricted diet, without a lot of work, by showing you how I eat! I eat strictly gluten-free. You'll find A LOT of veggies in this blog! I eat both fish and meat a few times a week (local and/or humane, whenever possible), and dairy when I'm visiting family and friends, or eating out. I hope you find this blog inspiring and interesting!
