Tuesday To Do List is my newest attempt at bringing you tidbits from the gluten-free world each week. This will continue until my mind-that-doesn’t-rest comes up with another way to entertain you guys. You can read my very first to-do list here. Cross your fingers I am back here next Tuesday with another list…
To TRY: Spiked Seltzer arrived. (thanks, guys –that was fast!) You’ll hear more about it next week — my #realfood50 challenge only included beer/wine and ended last night. I didn’t think a spiked seltzer before work was the way to go, but they are chilled and waiting.
Must BUY: Tessemae’s dressings. I’ve been eyeing these up for years when my superwoman friends have done their Whole30 challenges — very few (real food!) ingredients and no sugar, which is hard to find. The honey mustard is perfectly tangy and just a little sweet!
I do SPY with my little eye: another gluten-free cookbook to add to my list, it’s called Gluten Free Wish List, which fits pretty perfectly here, yes?
One very happy celiac sister is going to want to try these Gluten Free Little Debbie Oatmeal Cream Pies ASAP. (me too!)
Checking off MY list: #realfood50 challenge! I did it. Fifty days with no refined sugar, no refined flours, no fast foods, no fried foods, no packaged/boxed/bagged foods with more than five ingredients. Done! You can read all about how it started over at 100 Days of Real Food…we opted for 50 days, but it’s Day 51 and I’m still real fooding and feeling better than I have in a long time. More energy, no breakouts, no tummy troubles. With my birthday coming up, I know I’ll indulge in some treats (or at least some Tito’s vodka!) but I can honestly say, the less junk you eat, the less you crave it. A good reminder that I can do “in moderation” much better than I have been and my body will thank me — although it wasn’t the goal (and is hard to tell since I started the challenge at my heaviest weight ever, 😕 ) I did drop 10lbs and have more to go to get to a more healthy weight, it’s a (hard!) work in progress. Thanks for all of you cheering me on the last 50 days! Let’s hope Lisa and her team from 100daysofreafood.com just happen to stop by and see all the fun REAL FOOD I’ve been up to and ask me to join their team as the gluten-free guru. *fingers crossed*
