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! 🙂
