Week 1 of grain free diet

Well I am not much of a meal planner so I have a lot of food at my finger tips, to suit my whim 🙂 I had a rough night last night with not being able to sleep. While I am going gluten-free I am trying to cut back on soda, and stop drinking it completely. That didn’t seem to work last night **sigh** So while my kids are playing I am debating lunch and dinner. I have leftover chicken and salmon from this weekend. Also in the freezer is leftover (grain-free) minestrone. One of those will suffice for lunch, so in the mean time that leaves dinner. Perhaps another soup, or meat sauce over spaghetti squash, or bbq ribs. The possibilities are endless. How do you decide what to make? Are you a meal planner or do you fly by the seat of your pants (or your taste buds)? Again with the accountability here are my foods from yesterday and I will probably update with the foods from today.

Sunday Bfast– sauerkraut, banana lunch– grilled chicken, garlicky broccoli, & honey glazed carrots Dinner– Chicken salad- lettuce, grilled peppers & onions, chicken, diced salsa, cheese, sour cream, guacamole Snacks– sauerkraut, apple, cheese stick, carrots & almond butter

Today Bfast– Applegate sausage links, banana, cheese stick

Notice anything?? I am addicted to Bubbies Sauerkraut!!! Best sauerkraut ever, in fact I have never liked sauerkraut until I ate Bubbies at a friend’s house. In addition to taking probiotics I am trying to eat fermented foods to heal my gut 🙂 So as I go through this journey I will keep this blog updated. Again I am trying the grain-free diet until Oct 1. At that time if I am not feeling better I will be trying the gaps diet to heal my digestive tract. I will admit from starting this journey this past Friday my mind feels clearer (even though I lost sleep last night), I do not feel nearly as bloated, and I have lost 5 lbs (woo hoo!
