Breakfast - Steamed Sweet Potatoes and Beets
I placed peeled and sliced sweet potatoes and beets into a stainless steel steamer basket in a saucepan with water in the bottom, and steamed them until they were soft. I topped them with hemp hearts. This was a really good breakfast!
I've included a photo of the kind of steamer basket I use below. Full credit for the photo goes to Amazon.ca (and you can purchase the item pictured below by clicking here)
Lunch - Lentils
This was a really simple dish that I prepared in the morning while I was getting ready for work. Don't underestimate how tasty lentils are plain, or with very little additional flavour added. Lentils are easier to digest than beans, and easier to prepare because it isn't necessary to soak them (though I will get into the benefits of soaking and sprouting foods in a future post). You can also purchase pre-cooked lentils in a can.
1) Organic romaine lettuce - sliced
2) Brown rice
3) Lentils - I brought the following ingredients to a boil and then let them simmer until the water was absorbed and the lentils were soft
Dinner - Pizza!
I ordered a pesto pizza from Greco's (they don't seem to have their gluten-free options on the online menu). When I picked up the pizza they told me that they cook the pizza on a piece of parchment paper, which is a good measure to prevent against cross contamination.
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!
