The Gluten-Free Menu Swap is being hosted by Angela at Angela’s Kitchen this week. Apples is the theme this week.
Last week’s experiment with the Paleo diet was interesting. It was difficult to eliminate all sugar and grains, and I have to admit some still snuck into my meals. But I know I must have cut out most of it because by the end of the week I had lost another pound of weight and was CRAVING sugar, cereal, chips, and anything you’re not supposed to eat on the Paleo diet. I’ll probably try the diet again, but I’ll have to be prepared with some Paleo baked goods next time. I just couldn’t eat enough meat, eggs, nuts, fruits and vegetables to make up for the loss of grains.
Whether I continue to follow a Paleo diet or not, I will definitely make these yummy recipes again:
Roasted Potato Salad with an Avocado Pesto
Stir-fried Kale with Bacon
This week, however, I’m back to a basic gluten-free menu. And I’ve got apples in our menu.
