I have decided I am going to do a year of whole foods:  meat, fruit, veggies, nuts, coconut flour, healthy fats:  coconut oil/flax/olive, almond flour, garbanzo bean flour and honey!  I only focus on what I am eating not what I can’t.  This is a choice I am making for myself, no doctor told me to do it.  I am seeing how it impacts how I feel, it is takes care of a few minor health issues (back pain and rash on my face), and how my overall health is impacted over the next year (as in colds and such).

So, far it has been easy! I have been creatively making meals that are delicious and healthy.  Here is an example of what I had for lunch when my kids had Gluten Free Baked Ziti.  I had a greek salad with left over hot wings.  It was delicious and satisfied me until my afternoon snack of nuts which got me to dinner!

 

A satisfying lunch without grain!

This week we had a few days off due to the subzero weather. I also had to get creative as I did not want to go out in the cold to restock our cupboards, so I just cooked with what I could find. For lunch I found some GF penne noodles, goat gouda, and spaghetti sauce. Perfect- baked ziti! I was thinking this is a huge lunch however I can use the leftovers for lunch boxes tomorrow! Well…you will see what happend with that idea in a bit.

Ingredients
  • 1 bag or box of gluten free ziti noodles
  • 1 jar of your favorite GF spaghetti sauce

Instructions
  1. Cook noodles according to directions on the box. In a 9x13 pan dump the spaghetti sauce and stir in the ½ the cheese. When the noodles are done strain and dump into the sauce mixture. Stir until well coated. Sprinkle remaining cheese on top and bake for about ½ hour in a 350 degree oven!

I made the ziti with salad and everyone loved it!  Here is what happened to my leftovers however….
