10 Days Gluten-Free

      8 Comments on 10 Days Gluten-Free

Screen Shot 2013-11-24 at 8.32.52 PMJust like that I’ve successfully completed 10 days gluten-free. I wasn’t ever too worried about it being hard but I knew there would definitely be challenges that came along with the change. I’ve been trying to track not only what I’m eating, but when I’m eating and any symptoms that come along. I haven’t been doing very well at that but that’s okay, I’m trying. 😉

 

Anyway, I thought for this week’s What I Ate Wednesday, it’d be fun to take a look at some of the gluten-free eats I’ve been eating this week. I think this proves one can eat gluten-free, dairy-free and vegetarian while still having some incredible eats!

  • Roasted butternut squash topped with 2 over-easy eggs
  • Roasted butternut squash, brussels sprouts and onion
  • Scrambled eggs with broccoli and onion
  • Trader Joe’s butternut squash soup topped with crumbled plaintain chips

 

My eats have been so good, I really haven’t missed real bread. I’ve already started to notice some changes but I don’t want to speak too soon. I also think I’ve had some signs of body trying to heal and I’m playing around trying to make sure I’m eating enough at each meal or having good snacks as I’ve been hungry quite a bit. (Please note, I’ve also been increasing my strength training which often makes me extra hungry! 😉 )

 

 

What have you been eating this week?

Do you have any favorite gluten-free eats I should try?

I’m traveling for work next week and am trying to think ahead on foods I could pack to have on hand – any recommendations?

      Have you tried TJ’s gluten-free bread? I thought it was pretty good too though I do prefer Udi’s. I think a key thing with GF bread though is to toast it…

    Love all of these meals, Katie! I haven’t written about this on the blog yet but I’m starting 2-3 weeks of a GF diet (basically until Christmas) to see if it helps my hair. I’m excited to see if I notice any other changes as well but am nervous about what I’m going to eat. I know it sounds ridiculous but I’m a pasta and bread lover 😉 Thanks for some meal inspiration!

      You got it, girl! Buy the udis bread, it makes that bread craving so much easier and tastes good! I’m hoping it helps my hair too though yesterday I also got a hair cut which I’m hoping helps. 😉
