Breakfast - Roasted Potatoes and Avocado
I cut up the potatoes the night before, and boiled them for about ten minutes. Afterwards, I coated them in oil and seasonings and laid them out on baking sheets...this way all I had to do in the morning was turn on the oven! I haven't prepared potatoes this way before, normally I just cut them up raw and fry them in a frying pan. They were really good, and delicious with avocado!
These potatoes came from a farm outside of Powassan, but I also often buy organic potatoes because they are one of the dirty dozen.
Lunch - Sushi
I really enjoyed my first time eating at the The Kabuki House, where they were kind enough to make my friend and me a special platter that didn't include any shellfish or tempura. As long I remember to bring my own Tamari Sauce, sushi is a great lunch option!
Snack - Roasted Fava Beans
I'm 99% sure I found these at Sobey's, but I've forgotten. At any rate, they were a nice treat! For some reason, all of my friends I offered these to commented on how crunchy they were. I'm not sure why this was surprising, but it really seemed to catch everyone off guard. Unfortunately, I noticed I started reacting to these if I ate them too frequently, I'm not sure what I'm reacting to (there isn't an obvious source of gluten).
Dinner - Tofu and Kale Salad
I diced the tofu and cooked it at a medium heat with San-J Szechuan-Style Sauce until the liquid had evaporated and the tofu had absorbed the sauce. I didn't enjoy this sauce on a stir-fry, but it's really good on the tofu!
The kale salad was made with organic kale (rinsed and chopped), a chopped organic apple, sunflower seeds, and a flavoured balsamic vinegar (that had been massaged into the kale). There's a new shop that just opened in North Bay that specializes in flavoured olive oils and vinegars, Adoro.
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!
