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!

After a long walk on the beach this morning, we came back up to have lunch. Since I didn't make a big breakfast, I was hungry for something simple, but good. I had some Boars Head turkey pastrami in the fridge as well as little heads of artisan romaine lettuce that I brought with us from home (I get them from Costco). I decided to make "deli sandwich-cups". To make them easy to pick up and eat, I laid out 3 thin slices of turkey pastrami per lettuce cup and placed a little dab of mayonnaise in the center of each slice and then rolled them up and placed 3 pastrami-rolls inside of each lettuce cup. I took a piece of Monterey pepper-jack cheese and sliced it into 6 strips and placed 3 strips of cheese on top of the pastrami-rolls in each lettuce cup and then topped them with sliced avocado and diced cherry tomatoes. They turned out absolutely delicious! I had a few roasted almonds and half of a stalk of celery filled with natural peanut butter that I lightly sprinkled with coarsely ground sea salt. It was a quick and simple wheat free lunch that took very little time to put together...but somehow seemed special. Check out the photos below. Enjoy!
