Today hubs decided it was time for me to earn my keep and help him out on the land. We spent the morning painting sealant onto cedar siding. I may have a hunchback after being bent over for so long. Kidding. Kinda.
Broke for lunch and once again I made the perfect meal for a small child. I really have to work on making big girl food sometimes. Lunch was gluten-free rice bread with PB and Jelly, and the world's largest Fuji apple. Delish!
|I only eat open-face Sammies. PB on both sides!|
Hubs may have been making a Nutella sandwich for a snack and I instinctively went to lick the knife covered in Nutella. Until I realized I didn't know if it had gluten in it! I resisted, but I was not a happy camper about it AT ALL.
|I later discovered it is GF! AAAhhh!!!|
Luckily I had my own snack packed for the afternoon so I survived. Gluten-free pretzels, almonds, and a few Mike and Ikes.
Dinner was a quick simple meal, and a new find. I decided to try a Gluten-free frozen meal to see what this brand was like. It's called EVOL bowl (yes, that's love backwards) and it has a pretty great ingredients list. REAL ingredients, chicken teriyaki bowl. Here's the comparison: Box vs. cooked:
Not bad, in my book. A little plain tasting, but it was like something I would make. Simple ingredients, maybe a little extra soy sauce would have made all the difference!
No run today, my legs are killing from all the painting and it's taper after all. I'll try for some yoga tonight, maybe push-ups if my arms can take it! Plus, I'm super busy watching American Idol right now to see if I can spot myself in the background! Confused? Read this post! I'm undecided about the night's dessert: popcorn with PB, Greek Yogurt with toppings, pretzels in nutella? So many decisions!
Do you ever eat Microwave ready meals? If so, favorites?
Living without an oven means it happens more than I would like. If I do eat them, I try to pick the healthiest ones I can and supplement them with extra veggies, fruit, or salad. Favorites are Amy's brand, love those!
Open-faced sandwich fan?
Oh yea! This way I get double the toppings! I almost always do this, so good!
