Breakfast - My version of Peanut Butter & Banana Sandwiches
Made with soybutter, a banana, and rice cakes. Soybutter is basically the least healthy alternative to peanut butter, but sometimes I like to splurge on a bottle as a treat. It really does taste almost exactly the same as peanut butter!
Lunch - Salmon, Avocado, and Quinoa
This dinner was made for me by my Dad, who will be a guest chef soon! It's baked salmon (with fresh herbs on top), quinoa, Bragg Liquid Aminos, and an avocado.
Dinner - Rice and Beans
-container of PC Organics 'Kale, Chard, Spinach Salad Mix', wilted in a frying pan with a little bit of water
-grape tomatoes, halved
-sliced kalmata olives
-roasted red peppers (from a jar), sliced
-salad dressing (made from olive oil, balsamic vinegar, mustard, and brown sugar)
-tsp. grapeseed oil
-one red onion, chopped
-2 tsp. gluten free onion soup mix (I used the one from El Peto)
-3/4 cup brown basmati rice
-1 1/2 cups water
-4 cups of black beans (I made mine from scratch, but you can use canned)
-one tsp. cumin
-one tsp. curry powder
-1/2 tsp. cayenne pepper
-brown the onion in a saucepan in the oil
-add rice, water, and onion soup mix
-bring to a boil, reduce heat, and simmer covered
-add spices and black beans just before the rice is done
As a side note, I have a strange obsession with divided plates. I recently found the above plate at Canadian Tire and I couldn't resist buying a couple!
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!
