Using Custom SWAMI Food List

Fritatta is easy to make and has flexible ingredients when you get bored.  I make one with 3 eggs with a little water/salt and herbs and veggies in a 6-7" fry pan with ghee or olive oil.  I cut it up like "pizza" slices - easy to keep at room temp until breakfast and easy to eat even with my hands like pizza.

I love it with spinach/tomato, cilantro/onion, parsley/green onion, etc.

So far she's been doing well with muffins for breakfast, and lunches have been salads and/ a sandwich on homemade rye bread. I'm willing to keep baking her muffins for breakfast- the ones I made yesterday had banana, lots of eggs, almond meal, brown rice flour, and a little agave.

It turns out that there are two microwaves available for student use: one for meat and one for dairy. She asked about using it for heating up homemade food (as opposed to heating up food from a kosher restaurant or packaged food with kosher certification; ie, is our kitchen "kosher enough" for their standards) and she's waiting to hear back. If she can use the microwave, it will give her a lot more options.

I eat organic millet puffs cereal made by Nature's Path.  It's really cheap and although it is a puffed cereal and is really light...it actually fills me up.  I put a little agave on it and it's great.  I buy them at Whole Foods really cheap, believe it or not!  Oh, and there are no added ingredients...just organic millet.

I also like to eat turkey bacon for breakfast....I buy a minimally processed kind with no preservatives, etc..from whole foods.  Both of these are quick and easy.

For lunch I either eat a spiced up salad with lots of goodies in it (like spicy turkey breast, grapes).  (Oh and as an O nonnie....my only compliant cheeses are parmesian and peccorino romano...just FYI.)  If I want something different I will have a homemade lentil soup.  On a weekend or my day off, I chop up all kinds of compliant veggies (kale, collard greens, carrots, onions, golden beets, tons of compliant spices) and I cook them up in some olive oil.  I make a huge batch and use half to make lentil soup, and the other half to just have in my fridge to eat with dinners (mix with quinoa pasta and pesto with parm...YUM).  I use the same 7 qt pan and just add veggie stock and red lentils (which have been soaked in water and lemon juice)...then just cook for 45+ minutes.  

It sounds like a lot of work, but if you make a huge batch, then you have enough for a week or more....lunches and dinners!  This is the only thing that keeps me on this diet....if I don't have something in the fridge that I can grab and heat up...I go for the junk.  SO I've learned to do the work once a week and benefit all week long.

By the way, the pesto I make as well.....I grow tons of basil during the summer and make large batches and freeze them in ice cube trays.  That way I can pull out a few cubes when I want and add it to any dish.  I can't get enough!!!

Of course after reading all this, I can't rememeber if you said she had access to a microwave or not....sigh...  Well, anyway....good luck!

What's your pesto recipe? I grew basil this year and only managed one batch which didn't turn out as good as I've made in the past. I can't remember what I used to do lol!.


It is not my responsibility to convince anyone of anything.

Hi Ruthiegirl,

I am struggling with the same issues that you are...just found out I am a nonnie. I hate cereal of any kind   , so am presently eating omelettes.

I noticed you make your own rice milk. My hunter hubby has rice milk on his quinoa muesli each morning. Could I trouble you to tell me how you make it? Many thanks.

1/2 cup cooked rice in the blender with 1 - 2 cups water (depending on how thick you like your "milk". Blend on high for a few minutes, then strain through either three layers of cheesecloth or a very fine-meshed strainer.

Thanks, Lola. Is it better to use one rice over another...brown over white? Or is it more just a matter of taste?

that also has a value depending on gt.......
a swami will give you the right value depending on your variables and health issues
