Well done!
I would love to see what new recipes you will have tried and love to eat.
(Remember with Quinoa, you should rinse it before you cook it, as it has a bitter coating on the outside of it)

Quinoa and I aren't friends. I have rinsed and rinsed them but still can't get past it. I should give it more chances.

Spices can be quinoa's best friend.
If the bitterness is still really hard to get rid of after 3 rinse washings, you can try a boiling water rinse - but be careful, don't burn yourself!

I have issues with textures of food. I won't eat a raw tomato to save my life but will wolf down 3 servings of brussels sprouts..... but like I said I will give it another go cause I found a quinoa lentil recipe that sounds pretty good and simple


Breakfast
1/2c dry oats cooked in water
splash of almond milk
5 cut up prunes
cinnamon

Snack
10 oz green monster
1 serving tortilla chips

Lunch
2c vegetable bean soup

Snack
1c cinnamon applesauce
1 scoop protein powder
2 servings popcorn

Snack
16 oz green monster

Post workout
8 oz almond milk
1 1/2 scoop protein powder

Supper
2c vegetable bean soup

Yoga:60 min
Boot camp: 55 min
Leg Press: 3 sets 270 lbs 15 reps, 3 sets 315 lbs 12 reps, 2 sets 360 lbs (PB) 10 reps

Pulled a muscle in my back and pretty tender when I try to lift much weight up. Tomorrow will be a light weight high rep day I bet which wont' hurt me one bit lol. Gaia word of warning.... I will be consuming a cinnamon roll tomorrow and will be documenting it. That is one thing I enjoy more than most things outside of the gym not to mention I am showing my support for local small business :) I love my guilty pleasure

Sometimes if you have an intolerance, you can have something every once in awhile (I think the data says every 4th day - something about the immune system attacking something and then having 3 days of cleansing to get rid of it, and then you can have it again without the immune system continuously attacking).

You did really good today (though I hope you made your vegetable bean soup, because some manufacturer's put wheat in their soup to make it creamier). I do not know what you did on Thursday, but Wednesday you had alot of wheat, so it is 3 days. You might have a little bit of trouble since it is not known what you ate on Thursday, and it is not yet 4 days between eating something with wheat in it.

Good Luck! May the seconds of enjoyment on your tongue, bring you enough happiness, to get you thru the troubles the day may bring.
(You can still support local business by buying the cinnamon rolls and giving them away to your friends who don't have wheat troubles)

Yes I make my own soups anymore. I don't like the taste of canned soups. Plus I can control the salt that is in my soup :) I will be making tortilla soup and chili either today or tomorrow. The cinnamon roll until I can learn to roll dough out is my one treat and my friends well I would have to buy a couple and that would tease me lol. I will have to post a pic of just how yummy they look

I made some no bake cookies to help with a sweet tooth but in actuality I subtracted 1 1/4c of the sugar, added a lil peanut butter and used coconut butter. Been craving pizza and come home from yoga to find a big fat cheesy pizza on the counter tormenting me. I grabbed it shoved it in the fridge and warmed up a bowl of tortilla soup. Not hitting the spot but is much better for me lol. On to my food journal

Breakfast
1/2c dry oats cooked in water
5 cut up prunes
1 scoop protein
cinnamon
8 oz orange juice

Snack
1/4c no nuts trail mix

Lunch
1 1/2c sweet potato chili
1 brown rice cake
3/4c green beans 3 mushrooms cooked in a medium spice broth

Snack
8 small no bake cookies

Supper
1c tortilla soup
1 oz baked tortilla chips

Hi Karen,

Way to shove that bad boy in the fridge! Out of sight! And I love that you changed up the recipe for the cookies to make them healthier! I am always taking recipes and changing them that way as well! I love making my own food - I think you appreciate it and savour it more when you took the time to make it! Great job!

Do you make your own trail mix? I've been buying puffed Kamut- has a nice amount of protein and is great filler for trail mixes!

Hope you're excited for your week! How's the tummy?

Talk to you soon!

Amanda

My tummy is doing good. Not putting anything bad in it. I found the trail mix at the store and it looked yummy. The cookies didn't last the night lol. The pizza was torture... Not because of the cheese but because even the one place I can get a vegan pizza I can't get a gluten free crust cause it contains eggs.... I am not a pastry maker so making my own crust is hard to do

You could have Vita Spelt Flour, look for it in your health food store:
http://www.food.com/recipe/easy-no-yeas ... ugh-254063
It will be a cracker style crust. Look around at the site for a yeast one if you want to put a little more work into the pizza crust.
I make several, and then put them in the freezer (already risen), and use them when I want one in a half an hour or so.

Do you like apples? to eat raw that is (I see you like cinnamon applesauce). Eating the apples raw is suppose to help in your digestion and calm your tummy/GI tract.

Ditto for me too! Michigan is going back and forth too! I'd rather like the forth with sunny and 45+ degrees the best! Going back to the teens with wind and snow, not so much.
