Food journal and other news =]

Here is my food journal from this week. As I mentioned on the Spunky Coconut Facebook Page I don’t plan our meals ahead, so I thought it might be fun to record them like a food journal instead. As my husband noticed in reading this, we usually don’t eat typical breakfast, lunch and dinner foods—pie for breakfast, pancakes for dinner, smoothies for lunch ;-) I shop at Costco and the stores online that I have linked on the righthand side of my blog. Plus we use Door to Door Organics, which I thought I would post more about when I get my box this week.

We also eat a lot of leftovers as you can see. The soup we had yesterday is probably what we will have for lunch again today. I parboiled Tinkyada spaghetti noodles that I broke into little pieces for 10 minutes, while the chopped carrots, celery and onions were sauteing in another pan. Then I strained the noodles, poured out the cooking water and added my broth. I brought the broth up to a simmer, added the noodles and veggies, and simmered about 5 minutes more. We took this same soup camping last summer with our friend, Heather, from Life Gluten-free, and her family, and it reheats really well.
Well, I have to go get ready for breakfast, which I will also be posting about soon. We’re going to a local cafe that I recently found out serves gluten-free pancakes and waffles—I’m so excited. And, I wanted to say thanks to Shirley, of GFE, for doing a giveaway of my cookbook, and invite you to stroll over there and enter if you haven’t already. Have a great weekend!
Love, Kelly

    Hi Kelly! Thanks for linking to the giveaway! So many folks are excited to have a chance to win your book! :-) (Hope you drop by to read the comments.)

    Your food journal is interesing because it looks like such a small amount of food. However, I’m sure that it’s more than adequate and delicious. I love how you mentioned non-convential foods for meals. I really think that’s another disservice we do to ourselves by thinking we have to eat a certain type of food at a certain time of day. So limiting and unnecessary. Keep thinking outside the box, Kelly, so all of us can learn from you! :-)

    I forgot to mention in my post that I’m dying to make your chicken meatballs. I have a feeling they might taste like lumpia, which I’ve only had a few times, but loved. Anyway, the photo is so enticing. I’ll let you know when I make that and the custard pie (hopefully today on that).

    Thanks Meagan!

    Thanks Nistrine!

    Thanks so much Shirley! I love that we’re in sync about not eating certain foods at certain times of day :-) And I had to laugh when you said it didn’t look like a lot of food. I thought so too when I saw it written like that. But we have snacks between meals that I didn’t include, and we always eat when we’re hungry :-) Say hi to the snow for me. Love, Kelly

    That was fun reading what you ate! Thanks for posting it. How fun it would be to just eat what you feel like, even if it means (healthy) pie for breakfast. I always feel like I need to serve a vegetable at dinner, because it is usually the only meal my husband has at home. Is your hubby home for other meals, or do you just not worry about it?

    Heather, I got my Door to Door today, and it looks really good, lots of yummy food. But Ashley is sick, so I might have to wait till next week to do a post on it.

    Thanks Kelli! Yes, my husband works from his home office, so he eats the same as the kids and I. :-)
