One of the things I was afraid of in cutting gluten from our shopping list was missing out on food- really good food. I'm not even going to think about things like chocolate chip cookies, chocolate bars, ice cream, or CAKE since those items were usually for the hubby and I broke into the stash when I was extra munchy. I'm talking about my obsession with pita chips, regular yogurt, and whole wheat bread.
I had to make adjustments and of course my other boyfriend Trader Joe's came through. Each of these items is affordable and delicious- tested by all the members of my household. Both of us.
Rice and beans chips- these are adzuki and rice flour chips and have just a little bit of bite to them and are perfect dipped in guacamole.
Grade A Goat Milk Yogurt- tangy like regular plain yogurt but with a decidedly different taste. I add a little bit of honey to mine and stir in some chia seeds.
Savory Mini Edamame Crackers- crunchy, salty, made with soy flour and good with dips.
Roasted Seaweed- good as a salad topping or on its own. Just make sure you brush your teeth after eating this.
Brown Rice Tortillas- I found these much harder than regular tortillas so these are best heated. I top them with almond butter, eat, and then repeat.
Brown Rice Cakes- I know these have a bad reputation as a 'diet food' but these are really good. The brown rice makes these more hearty and a little nuttier.
Organic Red Quinoa- I love the protein content, the texture, and the color. You can have this savory or sweet and if you are food combining (or trying to), then you can eat it with protein...which is good!
Another new staple is the gigantor salad that makes its way into my belly at least one meal a day. I add a little of everything to it- mainly the produce that I buy on a weekly basis and a few fun items.
Question for you: What are some new products you have tried recently?
