Good day all!
Well, one week in to the #foodforskinmamma journey of no sugar/dairy/wheat and I’m not seeing a whole lot of difference yet to be honest. Rather disappointing. It’s such a learning curve, and I’ve definitely flubbed up a couple times on the wheat spectrum (hello, ordering turkey NOODLE soup!) I’ve done my best. On the weekend I was pretty cranky with cravings and near wanted to give up (already, sigh). Troy said to me, “Hun, you’ve got this! This is the best way to know if your body doesn’t like something.” I may have teared up when he said that. And I know, I know, I won’t stop until the month is up.
*Cue instant gratification music*
I am learning about buckwheat flour, how to make the most of my daughter’s nap times (they are short around here), and that eating healthy as a new mamma is a challenge! Prep, grocery shopping, meal planning… takes time! So, I’m doing my best. And Elizabeth has enjoyed sitting in her bumbo watching Mommy create 😉
Yesterday, I made a chicken lentil soup, and took the recipe as a guide, and put it in the crockpot all day. It ended up more like stew because I put more veggies than required, but it still got me some protein and I was able to freeze some for later! Along with the soup, while Elizabeth was enjoying playing before bedtime, I made these tortillas to go with it. I’ve never done them before, so I’d say they ended up tasting better than they looked! I also have been missing the crunch of cereal, so I found this recipe for some granola. Again, mine doesn’t look that pretty, but it’s healthy and will suffice 😉
Last night I made a spaghetti sauce of sorts, along with rice pasta shells, and it wasn’t half bad! I kind of threw everything in haphazardly, but here is what I came up with …
3 Roma tomatoes
1 green onion
handful of fresh parsley
1 tbsp Apple Cider Vinegar
1 tbsp (approx.) honey
salt to taste
I must say, it was tangy and full of flavor, thanks to that ACV!
Onward with this #foodforskinmamma journey…
