I thought I’d give you another update on my wheat free diet. I still cannot say anything conclusive about whether it’s working, but I’m really liking the experimenting that comes with it, so I really really don’t mind it. I don’t feel any differently from when I was going strictly lowcarb and my body doesn’t seem to respond that heavily to the wheat free stuff I’ve been eating. However, whenever I eat too much of something, I’m back to square one. The fact that I had a minor case of the stomach flu last week didn’t help either. That’s why I went to see my doctor and now I just have to try sticking to this diet and eating flax seeds daily to see how that works. If not, I’m going to be referred to the hospital. So here’s to hoping that won’t be necessary.
I still have either eggs or yoghurt for breakfast. The chocolate sprinkles option I’ve only had twice so far but it’s really really good.
Yoghurt, flax seeds, raisins and chocolate sprinkles (my newest guilty pleasure!)
Yoghurt, home made cereal, honey, banana
A few options here this time. Fewer salads this time. As I was sick last week I completely forgot to take pics plus I didn’t eat all that much.
Wheat & gluten free bread, apple spread & goat’s cheese with a chocolate banana covered milkshake
Salad: lettuce, cucumber, tomato, olives, walnuts & goat’s cheese
Blueberry, strawberry protein shake
Rice cakes with peanut butter & banana (my latest obsession)
I did manage to cook a few things for dinner though. Am planning on making another pasta later this week.
Vegan Mac N Cheese with roasted broccoli and a cashew nut sauce (this is DELICIOUS!)
Banana pancaked (without flour) with cinnamon and blueberries and a cucumber, bell pepper, flaxseed salad
Some fruit and the ultimate treat: a pretty guilt free chocolate fudge brownie. The plan is to try my hand at wheat free raspberry muffins next.
Banana, apple, raisins & cinnamon
A cup of green tea with apple & peanut butter
Wheat, gluten and refined sugar free chocolate fudge brownie (with nuts)
Recipes for the brownie and the pasta are coming up in the next few weeks, but I found them just by googling so it shouldn’t be hard for you to find them either. If you want to know recipes or where you can find some of these ingredients then just leave me a comment below and ask! Enjoy your Saturday! 🙂

All these look amazing! Even though you like to experiment, if you are still having stomache ache every once in a while, I would advise you to go to Heidy van Mossel from Vitaflow. She works with the Asyra system and can literally find everything that’s going on in your body. She has helped me and no other treatment has been so effective. It’s worth every penny!
Thanks for the tip! I’ll walk the traditional route first and then if I really want to know I’ll look into this. Trying the flaxseed first. 😉
Curious to try apple spread, we don’t have that here!
you don’t?!! I thought that was a universal thing!
No. We have apple sauce but not spread.
Oh you should so try it. It’s very sticky but oh so good. High in irons and really good for you if you need a bit of a pick me up if your blood sugar is a tad low.
I’ll try it in July and…. maybe sneak some in my suitcase 😛
you can take it home fine. It comes in a jar. As long as you check in your luggage and you don’t open it until you arrive home you should be fine.
Jammie ziet er heerlijk uit allemaal!
Thanks! Dat is ook mijn punt: dat je zonder een hoop troep te eten nog prima lekker kan eten.
Ziet er erúúg goed uit!
