It’s been a while since I’ve done one of these posts. For some reason I often feel vibrant in the cooler weather–perhaps one of the reasons that I love winter so much. Winters in the past have been an interesting mix of feeling invigorated by the cold and feeling run down by too many carbs and not enough fresh food. I vowed to change that cycle this year. Cutting most of the gluten out of my diet has greatly helped with that. In its place I’m eating pastas and breads that are brown rice based, and munching on far more delicious fresh foods.
This particular day is a good example of what I eat on the regular, especially on my days off from work. It started with a breakfast sandwich on gluten free bread. I’ve decided that I like this one, but only if it’s toasted.
My sandwich contained: Daiya jack wedge, tofu scramble, fresh greens, and a side of root vegetable chips. There was a green smoothie thrown in there too.
Post work out I was hungry again. Delicious, homemade roasted red pepper hummus and farmer’s market carrot sticks.
Eaten while managing emails.
Leftover tacos for lunch, from work. Then it was a walk in the park with my friend and her pup (it was nearly 70 degrees on this particular day) then some reading, writing, blogging, and the like.
Dinner was an extra special treat.
Delicious, gluten free noochy crêpes stuffed with spinach, veggie sausage, mushrooms, onions, and finished with a balsamic reduction. Heaven.
It was a simple, beautiful tasty day. Writing this post, I am now officially hungry. Off to food, folks!
