Day 1 {gluten & dairy free}

Day 1: No Gluten No Dairy!

We started today off right!  I must say that it takes a little, no a lot, of extra thought to cook and eat gluten free.  I am super relieved to be able to use chicken broth and canned tomatoes. I use these in oodles of recipes. Here is what we ate today! 


Breakfast: 2 slices bacon & an apple (jack)

               I had a Nussentials shake

Snack: hummus, carrot sticks & cherry tomatoes

Lunch: 2 Van’s blueberry waffles

Snack: popcorn

Dinner: Pumpkin Chili with corn tortilla chips

Day 1 wasn’t bad at all, like I said just had to THINK a lot more than I am used to. I was excited to find more things that are gluten free!

What Jack’s Eating


URS is doing a great recipe swap this week called “LUNCH BOX LOVE”. Jack is 2 1/2 and he goes to pre-school and I try everyday to pack his lunch with love.


I can’t put cute notes is yet since he a a bit young to read but I do pack a healthy lunch with a few daily staples. He always has:

1. yo-yo (yogurt)

2. milk box (he loves choc milk and when he has lunch away this is a treat)

3. fresh fruit (he would live on fruit alone!)

Then I add either egg salad, pb&j, pimento cheese or some sort of sammie and a veggie (lima beans, peas, or carrots are a few of his favs).

It isn’t fancy but, it works. He likes it and I feel good about knowing that he is eating healthy fresh food. 

What do you have for lunch?
