30 Day Gluten Free Diet Challenge: Day 13

Day 13:

Breakfast: Eggs, Ham & Hashbrowns
I'm curious if this looks similar to the scrambler I had when I went out to eat last week. It was actually fun to make, and I made the hashbrowns from scratch (I was avoiding going down to the cold basement again to get them out of the chest freezer).

If you'd like to try this, it's pretty simple too. I cut the potatoes into small slices like this:
Then, I coated them in oil in the pan before covering them and cooking them the same way I've always done hash browns.
The eggs were simply scrambled eggs with ham added near the end, and then I added cheese and covered the pan for about 30 seconds to melt it.

Here are a few more pictures from the top and a nice close-up.

Morning Snack: Orange Slices (Grapefruit Slices)
I've discovered grapefruit cut like orange slices doesn't work as well. It's still super good, but you can't put the whole thing in your mouth to avoid the juice squirting because they're too big. If you do manage to get the whole slice in your mouth, the quantity of juice tends to choke you. Lesson learned...

Lunch: Caesar Salad & Rice Chips
I went for a turkey salad instead today. I really need to open myself up to more of the salads. I seem to be skipping all the non garden type varieties.

Afternoon Snack: Popcorn
This is my fresh popped popcorn made in the popcorn popper at my office. Is it obvious I had already dug in and had a serving before remembering to take a photo?

Dinner: Pan-Seared Tilapia in Garlic Sauce w/Asparagus & White Rice
The asparagus at the store didn't look very good, so we had peas instead. I had never eaten any sort of fish prior to using the Easy 30 Day Gluten-Free Diet book, but I've discovered I love it. I'm still perfecting my cooking of fish, but I'm learning slowly. I definitely think tilapia is one of the tougher ones because it is so "fragile" but it also tastes great and it isn't super fishy.

Evening Snack: Fresh Papaya Slices
Is it bad if I forgot to take a pic before eating it?
