Breakfast - Raspberries and Avocado Toast
I picked these raspberries at Leisure Farms, and they were delicious. As for the toast, it really does taste better with slices of avocado on top!
Lunch - Kale Salad
I made this salad with kale from my garden, sauteed in a cast iron pot. I use a little bit of avocado oil in the bottom of the pot and then, when the veggies are really hot, I add a bit of water (a few tablespoons at most) and let the veggies finish cooking as the water evaporates. I find this is a really good way to cook veggies quickly without losing nutrients in the water I would use to steam them, or using a lot of oil. I added a bit of maple syrup, balsamic vinegar, dried cranberries, and pine nuts to this salad.
Dinner - Veggies, Beans, and Rice
This dinner was made with a can of Romano beans (rinsed and drained), brown Basmati rice, and a stir-fry of beet greens, zucchini, and onion (which I cooked in a cast iron pan with a bit of avocado oil and water, as described in the lunch above). The beet greens came from the farmers' market and the zucchini came from the garden. This dish would taste good with a bit of tamari sauce.
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!
