Going Gluten Free

Don’t freak out…let me explain. My husband is going gluten-free for health reasons and I am going along for the ride. I don’t expect to be exclusively gluten-free because I don’t have to be and because there’s a lot of things out there that I like to eat that require gluten, especially if they are going to be tasty. Let’s me honest. I love pie…real pie. I also love baguettes with butter that are dripping with honey. BUT I must also tell you that going gluten-free hasn’t really been as difficult as I thought it would be. We are about halfway through our first week, so I thought I would share what we’ve been eating so far and you can judge for yourself.

Breakfast:
-Hardboiled eggs, breakfast sausage, banana, juice
-Gluten-free “granola” from Kind
-Breakfast Tacos-scrambled eggs, guacamole, cheese, salsa in a corn taco shell
-Breakfast Bowl-Scrambled eggs, guacamole, cheese, salsa

Lunch:
-Canned salmon mixed in with lettuce and tomatoes with a GF an olive oil and balsamic dressing
-Meatball lettuce wrap with GF terriyaki sauce
-Quinoa topped with an avocado, two over easy eggs with Paremesan sprinkled on top

Dinner:
-Cheeseburger Soup with a salad and some fruit
-Salmon and Baked Cinnamon/Cumin Carrots with a salad and some fruit
-Slow Cooker Coq au Vin with a salad and some fruit
The recipes for dinner came from two cookbooks that I would recommend even if we weren’t going gluten free: Wheat Belly Cookbook and Well Fed.

Snacks:
-almond and salted cashew nut mix
-Larabars
-Hummus with crackers
-Hummus with cucumbers
-Tortilla chips and salsa
-Tortilla chips and guacamole
-Fruit…mostly bananas and grapefruit
