30 Day Gluten Free Diet Challenge: Day 4

Day 4:

Breakfast: Fresh Fruit & Gluten-Free Toast
I eat a grapefruit most days during the winter because I did it a few years ago, and I didn't get sick until a few days after I stopped. Ever since then, I do my best to eat one every day during the winter. Normally, I peel it like an orange, but I wanted a slightly "prettier" picture. The bread is Udi's Cinnamon Raisin.

Morning Snack:
I can't even remember what I had as a snack. I know I munched on some popcorn and Cinnamon Chex and an apple and...and...and... Apparently today was a snacking day ;)

Lunch: Ham Sandwich & Corn Chips
I didn't bother with using my panini press today. This is Udi's multi-grain bread as a small change from the norm. I've always preferred white bread, but I tend to be more accepting of "healthy-tasting" items now that I'm on a gluten-free diet.

Afternoon Snack: Carrot Sticks with Ranch Dip
This might just be the worst hack job on cutting carrot sticks ever, but they taste the same either way, right?

Dinner: Sauteed Shrimp, Onions & Red Peppers w/Garlic Sauce Served Over Quinoa

My husband literally laughed at me as I was eating tonight. It was either really really good, or I was really really hungry (or a little bit of both). I assume it was humorous because I was trying to savor how good it tasted while cramming it into my mouth quickly. Quinoa doesn't seem hard to make, but I don't remember liking it as much before. The garlic sauce may have been a huge help with it, but I'm not sure.
Here is a close-up of the amazing goodness.
This is a pic of the garlic sauce. I wish I could make it look prettier, but if you like garlic, I bet you think it looks great.


Evening Snack:
Pineapple as usual! I also bought our papaya for week two today. It's rare to find a ripe one at the grocery store, so now I have time to do the paper bag trip to ripen it quickly if necessary.


I also went grocery shopping today and scored 6 loaves of Udi's bread for $3.99 each. I think they're regularly $5.29, so I thought that was a pretty good deal. I love that we have a chest freezer so I'm able to stock up when commonly purchased items go on sale.
