Hello Everyone! My CSA basket from Field Good Farms will be arriving next Tuesday! I'm not sure I'll get anything prepared quickly enough to post next Wednesday, but I'm certainly looking forward to sharing my produce in the weeks to come!
Breakfast - Wraps
Well, after almost nine of months of posting this blog once a week, I think I've run out of unique breakfast suggestions :) See, 'What I Eat - Day Two' for details about this breakfast. In general, it's a gluten-free wrap available at Metro, a sliced apple, and soy butter.
Lunch - Spicy Carrot Salad
This salad was so good, thanks to my friend Maxine for reminding me to try new recipes (and sending them to me)!
Cut up four large carrots (as above). You can use them raw, or steam/boil them. Add 1/3 cup raw pumpkin seeds, 1/3 cup dried cranberries, and 1/4 cup chopped cilantro.
Mix up the following ingredients and pour over top:
-two tbsp oil
-one tbsp lemon juice
-one large garlic clove, put through a garlic press
-one tsp. cinnamon
-1/4 tsp cayenne pepper
-one tsp. cumin
-1/2 tsp. smoked paprika
Dinner - Tofu Salad
-one red bell pepper, sliced thin
-one can of sliced water chestnuts
-one can of mandarin orange segments
-one package of tofu [marinated in Bragg's Liquid Aminos, toasted sesame oil, and finely chopped ginger], pan fried
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!
