Wow, what an absolutely gorgeous Saturday we have here today....if 10 was the best it could be...today is at least a 15! For once the weatherman wasn't wrong...they said it would be a beautiful weekend and today sure is! It's about 1:30 and it is only 70 degrees here. The sky is postcard blue without a cloud to be found. It is breezy and just absolutely gorgeous! I hope the weather in heaven is just like this! ;-)
I woke up early this morning for some odd reason -- I was awake at 6:00 a.m. I am so glad because I wouldn't want to have missed one single second of this gorgeous day. I had already trimmed my rosebushes in the front yard by 7:00 a.m. and was at one of the local farmer's market a little after 8:00. Hubby had a board meeting to attend today from 10-2:30 (seriously...WHO schedules board meetings on Saturday's???)...so after the farmer's market I headed to Publix and did a little bit of grocery shopping and was still back home before 10:00.
For lunch I made myself a veggie burger that I grilled on my panini pan (you can use it as a grill pan too). It only takes a few minutes on each side. I put it on one of those Arnold whole wheat sandwich thins (the really skinny buns) and topped it with some cheddar and a few slices of a tomato just picked from my tomato plant. I put a handful of reduced fat chips on the plate and decided to dine alfresco since it was such a gorgeous day. Check out my lunch below -- it was really good. Not sure hubby would like these "burgers" though...they are made of carrots, celery, bell pepper, garbanzo beans, brown rice flour and sunflower seeds...but I enjoyed it! Since I picked up some beautiful blueberries while shopping this morning, I decided to have a scoop of frozen vanilla lowfat yogurt topped with some fresh blueberries. I served it in a little waffle bowl...and enjoyed dining in the "secret garden". I hope tomorrow is just as gorgeous as today is. This is MY kind of weekend!
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!
