I made a stupid mistake today. So, today at church I started to have issues. By the time I got home, I felt very uncomfortable, like I had had some gluten. I couldn’t think of where I would have been exposed. Then I remembered that I had bought some veggie sausages as a treat for ‘cheat day.’ duh! I didn’t even read the ingredients. Number one ingredient: wheat. Number one! It wasn’t even hidden in something like malt or triticale or barley. I can’t believe I didn’t even read the ingredients! Oh, well, you live and you learn. I pretty much stuck to the plan and still had a few treats on my cheat day. Here’s the run down for the day:
Breakfast: gluten-free bagel (treat) w/ dairy free butter substitute, poached egg, veggie sausages (treat that turned into a trick), banana
Snack: salad topped w/ Dijon date dressing and a mixture of black and kidney beans
Snack: salad topped w/ Fuhrman’s creamy sesame dressing. Here’s my typical salad:
Desssert: black bean brownie, coconut milk yogurt (treat)
I made Fuhrman’s creamy sesame dressing today. It was a little sweeter than I preferred, so I added some liquid aminos to it. Next time, I’ll lay off of the dates. Overall, I like the Fuhrman dressings, or at least the idea of Fuhrman’s dressings: using nuts as a base instead of oil and vinegar. They are definitely more nutrient dense and they’re very rich tasting as well. I did pretty well this week. Tomorrow I’m going to weigh in and see how well I did. Until tomorrow….
