Glutton for Gluten-Free

Good Food, Gluten Free

Yesterday involved a lot of processed gf foods for me.  I had both bread and pasta.  Because those items aren’t cheap, I made myself use the leftover pasta in my lunch today.  It’s not that it didn’t taste good, because let me tell you, that pasta could be the best substitute I’ve ever tasted.  (I’ll share all the details on it in a future post.)  Even the super-picky husband couldn’t tell it wasn’t wheat.  However, these replicas, though they taste good, leave me a little energy-less.  My body prefers real foods.  To make up for my tired body, I tried to make-up for my Wednesday with a healthy breakfast and dinner.  Breakfast was boring, but dinner was quick, easy, and healthy.


I had some grilled salmon for dinner, it wasn’t as interesting to see as the extras though.  On the side, I had a baked sweet potato with hot sauce as well as this brown rice.

Super-Easy Brown Rice 

  • 3 cans of condensed GF soup (I used organic valley)
  • 1 can of brown rice
  • 1/3 can of water
  • 2 cans of frozen peas
  1. Mix it all together in an oven safe dish.  
  2. Bake for 1 and half hours at 350 degrees.

I like my rice a little chewier, so I cut the time back by 15 minutes.  Super easy to make when you’re low on energy.

I also used the extra sweet potato I baked for a recipe that will appear in my lunch tomorrow.  I ended up the evening with a Vega/chocolate yogurt smoothie.  (Still not good…)  Hopefully the attempt at some naturally gf foods will up the energy level for Friday!  I expect I’ll need it.
