Day One

Ok, Tuesday was my first full day attempting to be Gluten-Free and dairy-free.

Breakfast turned out to be great. My typical pre-GF breakfast was Special K cereal with raisins and pecans and nonfat milk. This morning I had gorilla munch cereal, pecans and vanilla rice milk. I tried it with raisins too but I did not like the combination. This was a success. I also have Puffins in the house (my kids eat them) which are GF but they have never been a favorite of mine. Of course, things have changed so maybe I will like them better now.

Update - Puffins are not GF! More Info

Lunch was not so great as I ended up having an orange and a salad and was still so hungry. A few hours later I had some peanut butter and honey on GF bread which helped me be not so hungry but was not very satisfying. I am not very happy with this first GF bread I tried.

For dinner I had lentil soup and rice crackers and for another snack (still SO HUNGRY) I had some GF cookies with more rice milk. I really like the rice milk a lot but it would be nice if it had some protein in it. I would like to try one of the non-dairy milks that does, but it just makes things more complicated with my son allergic to nuts and soy.

Thanks for stopping by my blog! I hope you find some recipes that can help. I know I use dairy, but I've heard a lot of my recipes lend well to soy/rice milk substitutions. :D

Good luck to you in you GF endeavor, I hope you start to feel better soon!
