I went to Denver for a long weekend over Halloween and since I do love food, I ate at a few different places. Here is a break down of where I ate, what I ate, and how I felt about it.
Thump Coffee – This was in walking distance of the airbnb we were staying at. The latte was nice, but the granola and yogurt with fruit preserves was amazing! I ate more then I could because it was so good. Cute little coffee shop with long tables for sharing. Free refills on the drip coffee. Continue Reading
Not two long ago I finished a 30 Days Gluten Free challenge that I set for myself. I managed to force myself into thinking about every tiny thing I ate. And I made it 30 days and I felt great. Three days after making it 30 days gluten free, I ate gluten. I had a bagel. My breakfast options where slim, pretty much eat a bagel/muffin/sandwich or eat nothing at all and hope there is food at the place you are going to.
So I ate the bagel.
Then I went back to not eating gluten and being careful with what I was consuming. Until Friday night when I was on my way to a cottage and so very hungry that I would eat whatever was cooked for me, which turned out to be turkey burgers (with the bun) made with bread crumbs. The next day we had pizza pasta salad, I had my own with gluten free pasta, but then I took some of the pumpernickel sandwich. On Sunday I had 1 and a half slices of pizza, gluten pizza, because again I was so very hungry and didn’t want to wait for them to make me a gluten free pizza. Continue Reading
Today marks day 17 of being gluten-free and I’m actually a bit surprised that I’ve made it this long. There as been a lot of tempting foods that I grave and love but have managed to stay away from. The hardest meal for me was dinner a few Sunday’s ago. My mom and sis and I went out to The Keg for dinner and my sister ordered the garlic cheese bread, which is my hardest thing to stay away from, but I made it through the meal only eating gluten-free items! The waiter also bought me a creme brûlée, which is gluten-free!
I found the hardest meals for me are lunch and dinner because I hate cooking these meals. For lunch I usually had a sandwich or salad from Sandwich Box, Freshii, or Aroma. I ate a lot of gluten-free chicken fingers that I found at Walmart and are to die for! I need to start making a better list of what I will eat each week so that I stop eating the same thing when I am at home for dinner.
Having a gluten sensitivity always makes me worry about my eating habits when I go on trips or visit new restaurants, and Las Vegas was both those things. I also panicked over my allergy to strawberries, but that only came up once.
I am four days late on this. I am sorry! Work has been amazingly busy the last few weeks and I have been loving every minute of it, but it has been stressful and even when I get home from work I find myself working on other things or avoiding the computer altogether.
I wanted to put together a list of things I have been really enjoying from February! I tried to mix it up a bit. Continue Reading
