These are the ramblings of a self-described wheat, grain and gluten-free “gourmet girl” that loves to cook and eat good food. I love creating and sharing recipes and photographing “beautiful food”. In July 2012, I eliminated wheat, grains and added sugar from my diet and rediscovered real, whole fresh foods again and effortlessly lost 65+ pounds. Join me in my wheat, grain and gluten-free journey. See how easy it is to enjoy grain free gourmet, one meal at a time! Welcome to my blog. Enjoy!
This evening we made our Costco run after work instead of waiting until tomorrow morning. Since we didn't get back home until almost 8:00 p.m., we picked up a rotisserie chicken so we could have a big main dish salad for dinner. Before we left for Costco, I chopped a couple small heads of artisan romaine, sliced some red cabbage and mini San Marzano tomatoes and put them in the fridge so the salads would be quick to put together once we got back home. When we got back, I cut up the roast chicken breast and placed it on top of big bowls of romaine, red cabbage, tomatoes, roasted sunflower seeds and shredded Parmigiano Reggiano. It was quick and simple and wasn't a heavy meal so we can still get our walk in later this evening without feeling overstuffed. I snapped a few photos for you to see below. Happy 1st Day of Summer! Enjoy!
