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!
Last night I made a quick and easy chicken salad with chicken that I boiled over the weekend. It was so hot and muggy here that I didn't want to turn on the stove or oven and didn't want to stand outside to grill either. I chopped the cooked boneless chicken breast and some celery, pickles and green spring onions and mixed it together with a little mayonnaise. I had some leftover grain free hot dog buns that I used as little sub rolls to make "subwiches" with. I really enjoyed the convenience of having the bread available to make a quick and cool meal with. I actually fell asleep last night before posting my pics. Sunday evening I took hubby to one of his favorite local Mexican restaurants for dinner. I ordered fajitas made with chicken, beef and shrimp with the usual peppers and onions. It was served over a bed of sizzling tomatoes, yellow squash and zucchini. I topped it with sour cream, avocado, shredded lettuce and some diced tomatoes and jalapenos. It was awesome. When we did this once before, I just took my own grain free tortillas with me. This time, I enjoyed it "as is" and didn't miss any tortillas. I snapped a quick photo for you to see below. It really is possible to eat out and enjoy yourself when you're grain free if you know what to order. This evening we finished up the leftover chicken salad for dinner and I have a new "test loaf" of bread cooling now that I baked earlier this evening. I'm anxious to try it out. If its good...I'll post it tomorrow - otherwise it will be back to the drawing board to tweak it again. Enjoy!
P.S. - The tomato is from my garden!
