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!
Today it got warm here -- in the mid-80s and since there is rain in the forecast, it's a bit humid as well. Last night I took the night off from cooking because I wasn't very hungry. I had eaten a larger than normal lunch of leftover Chicken Paprikash (which I finally finished up for today's lunch). Hubby stopped on his way home and picked up a rotisserie chicken for last night's dinner and I had a little of that with some yogurt...LOL. Since it wasn't very photographic (white chicken with white yogurt on a white plate)...I decided to spare you last night's wacky meal. Since it was so warm today and the clouds are moving in quickly, I decided to make a quick chicken salad so hubby and I can get our walk in, now that it's cooled off a bit with the sun setting. I diced chicken breast and finely sliced a green onion and stalk of celery and tossed it all with a mixture of olive oil based mayonnaise and sour cream I spooned it over a large romaine lettuce leaf, topped it with with some diced cherry tomatoes, a few roasted almonds and served it with half of a sliced avocado. It was fresh, simple...and most importantly COOL so it didn't heat up the kitchen or us before taking our walk in a few minutes. I snapped a couple photos for you to see below. Enjoy!
