Vege-licious

Today is my fourth day going wheat-free, except my little accident yesterday but I’m not going to include that.

It’s quite challenging going without the wheat but I think I’m getting into the swing of it. What I’ve noticed is that I’m going through my vegetables way quicker. It’s great. My intake of veg has gone up heaps! Usually I go shopping either Thursday night or the weekend depending how busy I am. I can usually push it to the weekend if I need to because I’ll almost always have leftover veg. But this week, I think I will have eaten it all!

The first couple of days I felt a little light-headed but that seems to have passed. No ill effects at all today.

When I got home from work today I hadn’t taken anything out of the freezer and my usual go-to meal is wholemeal pasta, or a quick healthy pizza with wholemeal pitta bread. I didn’t have many options today!

So for dinner I made a pasta sauce absolutely loaded with vegetables and cooked a small potato in the microwave, and topped it with the veg sauce and some parmesan cheese. Delish!

Yesterday I made this quinoa, cauliflower and broccoli salad and had leftovers for lunch today.

I weighed myself this morning and minimal effect. Down about a kilo from the weekend, but I often fluctuate that much even if I weigh myself first thing in the morning.
