The gluten-free soy-free diet is going really well - I feel wonderful. But it is a little tricky trying to keep my meals varied and exciting. I went to Whole Foods last night and was in the mood for something Mexican, so I grabbed some things and threw this dish together. Though it is really simple, it's insanely delicious. The tortillas have a great flavor and texture, the Daiya melts wonderfully, and the salsa gives it kick and the satisfaction of fresh veggies.
Here's another recipe I made up as I went along. It is gluten-free and soy-free. Did you know that quinoa has more protein than any other grain?
I'm on a mission to cook more for myself in order to save money, eat healthier, and reduce packaging. Now that I'm a gluten, soy, & sugar free diet I have to be more creative. Last night I put together a great dish with 3 elements - it was flavorful, satisfying, and extremely healthy.
Minted Quinoa with Pine Nuts, adapted from Whole Foods recipe:
- I don't drink/use it fast enough and most of it goes bad
- I try to avoid soy
This yummy treat is free of gluten, soy, oil, and sugar: ants on a log! This childhood favorite is incredibly satisfying and easy to make - a great summer treat. In case you need a reminder of how to make it:
