Quoted from Drea
Is cassava from the squash family? I should look it up.... No, I see it is more like a potato; cassava is a black dot for me.


We looked this up.  It has to be cooked a specific way to make it safe to eat...some varieties that is.  I've seen cassava chips at Whole Foods and Trader Joe's, but I'm betting they're cooked in avoid oils.

welcome to post it here, Cristina, it sounds delicious.

soooo, last night I just couldn't face my own cooking (and I do it well) but it gets boring, y'know? So we went out to a nice restaurant and to my surprise a most elegant and compliant dish was on the menu!!!! Wild caught coho salmon with spinach and okinawan sweet potatoes (purple)!!! I was in heaven!!!! Truly, it was my ideal meal!!!

Christina:  That's a good post for this thread because it's important for those eating grain-free to be sure and get plenty of compliant carbs from other sources.

Jayneeo:  That is a meal I'd be happy to share with you!

...so here's the slippery little thread!
Well....yesterday we were in Carmel and went out for a bite....I had 3 sliders (did not eat the buns) and an appetizer of broiled portabella mushroom with onions, gorgonzola (not so great) on top !!! (yum)
And today I put a big grassfed rump roast in the crockpot with bay leaves, carrots, onions, celery, and a cup of red wine. It came out so delicious.
Tomorrow night : the dreaded book club Christmas party! I'm bringing an appetizer, and maybe I should bring a dessert that I can eat so I don't eat theirs! There's an almond/pumpkin bar that is yum.

Hmmm your food sounds absolutely yummy!! Hmm that gorgonzola cheese is quite good eh? Never a bad idea to bring a dessert if it means you can resist eating avoids

OMG! I was counting my sugar free days as if I'd started in November!. So I've really been wheat/sugar-free for 48 days . And here I thought I was good at math!   I thought it had been longer.

I caved and bought some blue cheese stuffed green olives yesterday. No vinegar, but they do have xantham gum, and blue cheese, both of which are avoids. But, oh are they good!


It is not my responsibility to convince anyone of anything.

You deserve them, Drea!
Last night (book club bash) I ate the chicken breast, the spinach salad, had wine, and ate the top off a dessert: bottom was cake, topping was whipped cream with fresh strawberries and kiwis. Not too bad for a buffet of temptations. Oh, and I brought (and ate) my appetizer, endive leaves with a goat cheese filling (ch. walnuts, goat cheese garlic, thyme, etc,)
I call it damage control.

Well done Jaynnee on resisting buffet temptation - your food sounds devine!! & Drea for wheat/ sugar free for so long!!

I caved the other day & opened the rice cakes Between them & the nuts I reintroduced the next day, I have gained a tad But only put back what I had lost the week or so before, so not too bad & it's coming off again...

Now, to avoid the nibbles tonight at the Christmas pantomine... Having potential severe reactions actually helps, as I easily identify the pork & wheat & avoid them!! In fact most of the nibbles are usually danger - from previous year's knowledge... Will concentrate on the mains they serve later...& skip dessert

Next nights out, Friday & Saturday, will not be so easy... Friday will be drinks after work at Husband's office & Saturday is my work dinner (Indian) Will have to eat plenty beforehand both times...

Will actually be glad when these end of year events are finished The more we  have to go to the tireder I get.. & the easier it is to slip up Off to make a large salad for work & some for after for pre-show snack!!

Have a good afternoon/night everyone!!

Good morning, Grainfree Ones!!!
DH's B'day yesterday...out to dinner....always a challenge! I was fine except for an appetizer which sounded good, "fried artichokes"...they were good...but dusted in some kinda flour!! And did I say they were good?     The rest of the dinner was fine, but then I had a bite of chocolate frosting off a pc of cake. Result? weight gain!!!! (the martini didn't help!)
But its a new day......etc. Back to the drawing board.

KK ( ) Here, Day 91 grain free and about losing more weight.

I have not been getting up early to get out of the house to exercise EVERY morning
since I've been up late getting out some orders.  And I'm with how much shipping costs are these days.  How does a small (and I mean small!) manufacturer compete with big companies & free shipping?  How?

Lewis has discovered AMARANTH flour tastes wonderful on turkey w/ground fennel seed with a touch of ground Jappano peppers.  

Another great taste is lamb patties, dusted with (Lewis says to tell y'all "freshly ground") amaranth flour and at the end of the cooking, a bit of marjoram added to the top of the patty.  Several cloves of garlic in the pan next to the burgers.

Today we had a treat, deep fried cod & green beans for breakfast.  Lewis says, frozen cod doesn't taste very good any other way. Anyone have any baking ideas for frozen cod?

<----KK

We have added an evening to try to up our exercise. Had a 2 mile walk this morning and this evening, we did a 3 miles !!!

Lewis had to go to the parts store....The white whale work truck was having some problem that was stumping him all day. He was going to call it a night and we'd take our walk.  He was afraid that we were going to have to replace the engine in a year. All I could think about was the ka-ching this thing has already eaten up.  He was very worried about his pride and joy.  But then he had a moment and figured it out. The coil was bad.

So, instead of driving to the auto store, we agree to go there for our evening walk. It's at least 1.5 miles one way.  

So now I'm wiped out.  Much like I used to get when I would walk the hills.

I have a goal. I'm focused on the prize. It's to be wearing much smaller pants the next time I'm covering a trial.

I think this week I've broken my own record... only 2 tablespoons of grains (sprouted brown rice and red quinoa). Feels great

KK Here, Day 93 Grain Free!

The shows 1.5-2 more pounds lost.  I hope I never find them again.

You got it!! We need to come on here frequently to remind ourselves & help each other

After 3 nights out in a row: Thurs, Fri, & Sat...I am bushed & also have eaten some avoids...*sigh* as well as going to bed after 2am on two nights...

I went to an Indian restaurant on the Saturday (work changed the venue at the last minute from the one picked) & even though I carefully chose the only curry with no avoids (no nuts, coconut milk etc) & was going to avoid the rice, as it ended up being so hot, the only way I could eat it was with rice to cool it down... should've ordered mild, or else ordered some lettuce etc to go with it *rolls eyes*

Later, a guy on another table gave my husband half a chocolate cake & it must have been the rice that set up a carb craving...but one lick of the icing & I had to have a piece!!! It was yummy & at least homemade & I haven't had cake in yonks!!!

But...I certainly  have been paying for it!! We had parked up a huge hill so was good exercise to get back to the car, but my legs are still stiff on Monday & I'm thinking part of that must be the sugar & other carb avoids??!!
