Tizzy with a Dash of Gluten free

My the time passes by! Since the weekend began, the flurry of activities have yet to stop.

Meanwhile, my sad little phone pictures will have to do as I spoil the weekly mealplan…

My Spunky Coconut Grain-free Cookbook arrived in the mail! These are the orange scones recipe, but a little ugly since I am working with a wee processor, not an actual FOOD PROCESSOR. 🙂 Moving does make things complicated.

The past two evenings I have enjoyed gluten-free matzo ball soup. Perfect comfort food for a week so jam-packed as this! Instead of using a simple broth, I made my own veggie stock, keeping the vegetables to add a little more bulk. Elana’s Pantry offers these fluffy matzo wonders in her recipe, which I recommend. Did you know you can freeze the batter into balls and then boil them as necessary? Perfect convenience food!

For the other meal ideas, I have made (but alas, not pictured) Palak Dahl for lunches, paired with a fantastic gluten free chip company, Food Should Taste Good. Last week I tried their Jalapeno chips, which I absolutely loved. These Blue Corn Dipping Chips are wonderful too.

You realize these are quite addictive and spicy… must!! Perfect solution for a salty tea time moment with roasted red pepper hummus. Mmmm…

Til we meet again, YYLady

Ancho Lentil Tacos

Not the highest quality photo (I am reduced to camera phone and webcam at present), but a delicious gluten-free lunch addition!

I suppose I might mention what all will be gracing the screen this week, if I manage some more pictures:

Bfast: GF Zucchini Bread + Eggs
Lunch Options: Ancho Lentil Tacos or Nacho Supreme
Dinner Options: “Spicy” Zucchini Soup or Pumpkin Soup
*note that all options include some addition of greens or crunchy vegetables, and are gluten-free and vegetarian recipes

Yes, I am on a gluten-free diet at the moment. At first, I thought there might be a need for some testing to be sure and whatnot. However, after viewing an interview where an MD specialist described how gluten encourages autoimmune diseases to thrive, I thought- to heck with it! Feeling like I need a furnace to keep blood in my hands in the middle of a desert summer means I will do anything to naturally cure or assist my body. If you too suffer these things, I recommend reading more here about her work.

Marvelous 4th Wishes, YYLady
