30 Day Gluten Free Diet Challenge: Day 3

Day 3:

As I said before, I have a bad habit of eating dry cereal for breakfast. Today, I decided to forgo the "easy breakfast," and I took the 60 seconds to pour it in a bowl, cut a banana, and pour coconut milk over the top of it. This is Corn Chex and So Delicious Coconut Milk in case anyone was wondering.

Morning Snack:
Today I munched on Cinnamon Chex as my morning snack as I was busy at work and completely forgot my fruit cup at home. No picture was taken as I ate it straight out of the box. ;)

Lunch: Leftovers
It was a busy day at work, and we made a ton of stir-fry last night, so I went with stir-fry leftovers. It was quick and easy and totally hit the spot. The picture definitely doesn't make it look as appetizing as it tasted.

Afternoon Snack: Cookies & a Snack Bar
I haven't been able to find a gluten/soy/nut free pudding (I'd happily take a Lactaid if it contained dairy), so I went with random snacks for my afternoon snack. It was an Enjoy Life afternoon as both the cookies and the snack bar were Enjoy Life products.

Dinner: Beef Tacos w/Fresh Salsa & Avocado Cubes
I begin with a picture of dinner because I LOVE this meal. The taco seasoning mix in the book is absolutely amazing. I snapped a quick shot of the spices all grouped together after measuring everything out. In hindsight, I wish I had lined them up in a nicer shot and shown the actual mix after making it. I think I had good intentions, but once I got cooking, I just sort of finished and forgot about photos. (As you can see, I have no preference when it comes to brand--as long as it's gluten-free.)
It's not in the photo, but we ran out of chili powder, so we used cayenne instead. My husband looked it up, and supposedly you could use 1/4 of the amount as a replacement. I'm incredibly sensitive to spicy things, so if you know anything about the intensity of cayenne, you probably already know this was a huge mistake. I wound up eating tortilla chips as I ate the tacos to help cool my mouth off.
One more shot of one of my favorite meals from this book:

Evening Snack: Pineapple
It seemed like overkill to take another photo of the pineapple, so I skipped it tonight. I can't decide if it's worth it to take a picture each night.
