Made it – day two, no near misses, up to now, at least! So I had the same breakfast as yesterday, which I am still enjoying – not like my foray into gluten-free in 2009 – I’m unsure what has changed perhaps it’s my improved knowledge of the diet.
My lunch is shown on the right, it consisted of
1 fillet of smoked mackerel
1 boiled egg
2 celery sticks
2 inch slice of cucumber
and 2 slices of my wonderful (?) gluten-free bread
Unfortunately I forgot to take some fruit with me today so I arrived home ready to devour ANYTHING, I would have eaten a scabby donkey if one were available – they are gluten-free :-). The one problem with the gluten-free diet if you are not used to it planning is needed. What to have for my meal? Whilst preparing my meal I had 2 small gluten-free corn cakes and a banana.
My bread has gone stale now – so ready for toast, 2 slices of bread (or brick – which describes it a little better!) with Edam and some ham (packet ham – avoiding contamination.) I did really enjoy this and it has filled me up. The gluten-free carb foods do fill me up I wonder if that is because they can be higher in fat to improve the texture? I don’t think my bread will last another day so I have wasted that mix, about 1/3 of a loaf, I might try freezing some next time, but I don’t think I have enough mix left to make another loaf.
The good thing about following the diet is that I can’t have any biscuits – My one and only weakness!! 🙂 I am going to try to make some scones now – so watch out for another culinary disaster.
