Welcome to another week of 'What I Eat!" I know this has been done a million times, but I was inspired to show everyone what a typical grocery shopping trip looks like for me. I wanted to call your attention to a few things:
Breakfast - Rice Porridge
-1 1/2 cups red rice
-one can of coconut milk
-that same can filled with water
-1/2 cup of golden raisins
-two apples, cored and chopped
-2 tsp. ground cinnamon
Place all the ingredients in a slow cooker. Stir thoroughly and then cook on low setting for six hours. I always make this right before I go to bed, so that it is ready and waiting for me for breakfast!
Lunch - Quesadillas
-brown rice tortillas
-washed and thinly sliced greens (I used chard)
-black beans, mushed up with a fork or potato masher (I used canned beans, rinsed)
-Daiya mozzarella style shreds
I make these in my cast iron frying pan. I put a bit of avocado oil in the bottom of the pan. Then I layer in one tortilla, some black beans, the greens, the shreds, and then a second tortilla. I cook it at a medium heat until one side has started to brown, and then flip it over to brown the other side. I served this with avocado. It makes a great lunch!
Dinner - Rainbow Trout, Red Kabocha Squash, and Steamed Broccoli
For those of you who have been reading my blog for a few years, you know I get really excited every year (around this time) when Red Kabocha squash hits the grocery store shelves! I love it! It tastes absolutely delicious, and you can eat the skin! I prepare it by slicing the top and bottom off, slicing anything off the skin I don't want to eat, scooping out the seeds, and then roasting it cut side down in a glass or ceramic baking dish at 375 degrees Fahrenheit until it gets soft (approximately 40 minutes). You can season it as you wish, but I find it so delicious I prefer to eat it plain. I roasted the rainbow trout on my cast iron cookie sheet at the same time.
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!
