I know today’s title is some pretty obvious foreshadowing, but I’ll explain more about the change in tomorrow’s post.
I will tell you that I am really excited to branch out of my standard dinner favorites and try some new meals in the coming months.
We have also gradually been putting a greater focus on improving the quality of ingredients we are purchasing and at this point we have transitioned to almost all grass-fed, free-range meat and eggs.
And with the addition of some new kitchen tools over Christmas, I am ready to bust out some culinary awesomeness in the DMB kitchen and prove that it is possible to produce high quality, affordable meals that don’t take hours of slaving in the kitchen.
I’ll also be adding breakfast and lunch ideas to my weekly plan to help me adjust to my new diet. And in the spirit of full disclosure, I will mention that I am the only one in the house going GF, however, since I do about 90% of the shopping and cooking, there will be significantly less wheaty foods being consumed. Except for the good ‘ole PB&J. I don’t think Allison could survive without that.
So here’s the plan…
Breakfasts will be a selection from hard-boiled eggs, yogurt, granola, rice or corn cold cereal, oatmeal, fruit and smoothies.
Lunches will probably be a lot of soup and salad for a while because I’m a little short on other ideas. Although, I’m thinking Taco Bell would offer a variety of options. (kidding!) (not really…)
Sunday: Hoppin’ Juan with black-eyed peas and chorizo sausage (from the freezer)
Monday: Butternut Squash Chips
Tuesday: Lentil Shepherd’s Pie
Wednesday: Chicken Enchiladas, Refried Beans
Thursday: Grilled Fish TBD by what looks good and is affordable, Frozen Peas
Friday: Pinto Beans (without cornbread… sigh)
Saturday: Pot Roast, Potatoes, Carrots
That’s seriously a lot of fiber. My colon sure will be happy. Which I guess would be the point of going gluten-free.
Whoops. I said I wasn’t going to tell you today. But there’s a lot more information to be shared tomorrow, so that’s not the only reason to come back. Before I start blabbering it all over the blogosphere I better go… So I’ll see you tomorrow, m’kay?
Are there any other GFers out there?
