Happy Wednesday!! We are having yet another gorgeous sunny day. D and I managed to make it through our babysitting shift without any major issues even though the kiddies were super rambunctious. Today one of our youngest pals (I think he is maybe 10 months) was taking a few steps here and there. He was so cute wobbling all over the place – I kind of miss those days – heavy stress on the kind of.
Let me recap the eats of the day.
I was up early and went to the gym for a 60 min. run (7.44 miles) and some weights. Before my workout I ate half of a new bar that I got yesterday.
Half was miniscule. It did the trick with out giving me a belly ache – no soy or wheat in these guys.
Breakfast this morning was oatmeal, raisins, strawberry yogurt and cashews. I’m not having oat bran because it is not recommended to people who are avoiding wheat. That’s ok, the oats today were super creamy and delish. I would like to note that my tummy was feeling great and gurgle free.
My AM snack was a Larabar. The first time I tried this bar I was not crazy about it but I decided to give it a 2nd chance. I actually really enjoyed it today. Maybe with the limited foods in my life the tartness of this bar made my tastebuds perk up a bit. My belly was still feeling great.
For lunch I made a Swiss and tomato sandwich on my gluten/soy free bread.
I also had a salad – lettuce, tomato, butternut squash, zucchini and Maple Grove Farms dressing.
I ended lunch with cottage cheese, Cinnamon Puffins, a dried apricot, 2 dried figs and a spot of PB.
The belly result after all that is – I FEEL GREAT!!! I am actually not that thrilled about that because I don’t like the fact that maybe it is wheat bothering me. I really love all my wheatie foods. I do love the fact that ALL day my stomach has not felt bloated at all. If I may get a bit personal, I usually develop gas pains after I eat these foods that cause havoc to my system – kind of embarrassing but it happens. I have gotten to the point of not wanting to leave my house because my stomach hurt so bad – that is not a good thing. My plan is to try to eat wheat free for a little while and then add in a small serving at one meal maybe in a week or 2. If I get a belly ache then I will know exactly who the culprit is.
I will try to get as creative as I can with my meals as I embark on this new diet. I hope that you all will still enjoy reading, your loyalty means a lot to this mommy.
If anyone has any gluten free product suggestions or recipes please drop me an e-mail if you are willing to share. Thanks a bunch.
I hope you are enjoying your day. See you tonight with my gluten free dinner recap.
