lunch was leftover cold meatloaf (loooove it) with vegan aioli (not super compliant) and tomato. yum.
Dinner was a salad and several (too many) slices of manchego cheese... plus I had a banana and a couple handfuls of pecans. All good for me except the aioli.

I thought they were a black dot for Gatherers?

I think the biggest part of going grain free is I've also been junk food and pepsi free for 22 days.  The disappointing part is, I'm not bouncing back to feeling great as quickly as I have before.  It's a much slower process now.

IF YOU can give these up you are a Hurculeeeeee.. yes it takes getting used to being evened out living.. no highs no lows.. but give it a long time and it will become normal.. after a while you will actually SEE how much you stressed your body before.. good luck!  you will do it..


Being here is invaluable, but not enough. We need ALL the Doctors. I needed them for a very small cancer spot-I could never feel!!! Please do your mammograms! Doing so saved me from cancer later on. I am grateful! Thanks for learning from my experience! I was lucky! I wish the same for YOU!

Keep up the good work, Jayneeo, your are becoming an inspiration to me.  I am working on lowering the grains.  It does help, but I think I need to go all the way as you have.  I do have bananas as a diamond on my swami, but I limit them also.  LIke them with walnuts for a treat/dessert.

KK here, Day 26  Grain Free, Free,

We have not eaten in a long time.  Too much sugar. It's almost as bad as eating a grain, because of the sugar crashes. (I'm finding that I can't do Anderson's pea soup anymore, ~nothing in it but peas and salt~ because it's just too much starch at once.)  There are other not so good fruits that we still eat though, like strawberries on occasion.

Smilies. They're pretty easy to use.  I have a photobucket account where I've collected well over 200 gif graphics.  I enjoy adding images because they help me be more expressive.   When you are just communicating with the written word, voice inflection, facial expression and many times intended humor are lost.  Smilies help pick up the slack.

Day 27 Grain Free.

Jayneeo over the benefits of

I had 2 scrambled eggs for breakfast and leftover veggies (zucchini & red bell).  For lunch, Lewis fixed an old BTD standard favorite, beef stew.  Thin beef strips first fried/carmelized in rice bran oil, then added to a stew pot with sweet potatoes, onions & green beans.  Thickened with a small amount of freshly ground rice flour.  Flavored with bay leaves, even though he really wanted rosemary (a Gatherer black dot).  I love this stew.  We haven't had it in ages.

Soooo, anyone else grain free?

I also have bananas as a diamond. Eat one every 2 or 3 days. They help keep the grain and sugar cravings away. I try to eat some sweet potato each day. Both help keep my leg cramps under control. I have beeen doing Kundalini Yoga for 70 minutes, 5 to 6 days a week. Added walking for 20 minutes this week. Have had calf cramps on and off. Youchy!!! had a major inner thigh cramp yesterday. It was painful and weird.

Thanks to Jayneeo I go spelt and rye free - good riddance. I cook and eat 2 tablespoons of rice flour almost every day, and I eat buckwheat noodles (containing gluten) 3-4 times a week. Thinking of starting millet again, in moderate quantities.

I'm not doing this in order to lose weight - it does seem I've lost 1 lb. though   - but against the arthritis which "suddenly" (there were warning signs) attacked my both hands.

At friends' house tonite: had chicken breast (bl dot on swami) squash, and baby bok choy. and a couple glasses of wine. (a white and a red). These are not the primo foods for me, but at least, no grains. Also no dessert!

Ah,

We've usually made them with spelt and too much agave.  No pancakes for us and Lewis has cut back on having any Ezekiel in the house, which really helps me not to even have it in the house.

Day 28 Grain Free.  Breakfast was lamb burger, & leftover veggies from the beef stew.  I'm going to ask Lewis to make salmon for lunch.  Haven't had it in days.

A great treat!

Do you buy this flour or grind the almonds by yourself?

Curious Jayneeo, did you have any blood sugar crashes?  Maybe I'll get Lewis to try making some if I go buy the almonds. The vanilla will be a problem though on the general Gatherer diet. It's a black dot.

You're Goldie. They really help pick up the slack where the written word fails.

It's easy really. Open a photobucket account (free), collect smilie images and follow the directions to upload them to your photobucket account. To add them to your posts, just use the IMG url link under the smilie.

No blood sugar crash if you don't have any sweets on top.
Oh, the almond (blanched) flour I used is from Bob's Red Mill, (Whole Foods)... but Elana of Elana's Pantry online, says Bob's Red Mill is gritty. Well....kinda, but not bad. She suggests buying it from Amazon, I think...
not almond meal, but blanched almond flour. I made a raspberry-stevia-kuzu topping. (kuzu is a starch, could use tapioca flr, but kuzu can be found with asian food at WF)...

Made them for brkfast again today. Last night was chicken, sw. potatoes, salad, and broccoli rabe.
But during the day I had mozzarella cheese, avocado, apple, half a gr. beef patty....(do you think I'm getting too much fat? ...)

After going grain-free, I have steadily dropped weight (for several months.  It has slowed down now, as I've reached my ideal weight.  But I feel that I need more fats in my diet than I did when I was eating grain carbs.  It would be easy to swing to the extreme of no grains, but overeating on other foods to compensate.  With enough healthy fats, I feel very satisfied and there are no cravings.

We've tried Bob's Red Mill before and have not been impressed with the freshness of their products.  That could be Whole Food's problem not rotating stock...

I'll try grinding some almonds at home in the coffee grinder. It's a powerful grinder that makes a really fine rice flour.

I make a fine textured almond flour with my Omega 8006 Juicer by using the blank filter.  The almond meal comes out more like a powder, not gritty at all.
