Disclaimer: This post sadly contains no egg rolls. But more on that later.
At this point in my life, I’m not even going to bother giving excuses about why I’ve been MIA from my blog for so long.
What else can I say that you haven’t already heard? School, work, a weird slew of health problems, most just annoying that make me want to lie in bed all day and not be productive, but one that actually landed me in the ER with acute renal failure. BUT, my kidneys are in perfect working order now, and while sometimes I still just want to lie in bed (stomach issues) but I’ve decided to suck it up and continue with my life.
And of course, that means continue with my blog. I’ve missed ya’ll!!
I’ve finally gotten into the Gluten-Free eating habits that I’ve needed to be in. For some weird reason I’d crave egg rolls for days, not able to eat anything else, because nothing else sounded good and made me nauseous. I eventually caved, and would eat egg rolls, and only egg roles for days at a time.
Even though I’ve given up the egg rolls, I still crave them. I’ve been searching high and low for a G-Free alternative. Nothing so far. But, here are some things that I’ve been eating until I find my delicious egg rolls:
When I heard Domino’s was coming out with a gluten-free (except not really, because cross contamination is a HUGE threat there) crust, I had to try it. It was good, but looking at my sad little G-free pizza sitting next to my families delicious, golden, fluffy, gluten-y crust pizza, it was nothing special. I guess I’d have to say it was good for a thin crust pizza. When I ate this, my stomach was still screwed up from previous days of eating to notice if the cross contamination upset my stomach.
Gluten-free Trader Joe’s corn pasta (Which is sooo good! I haven’t tried a lot of gluten-free pastas yet, I’m a little scared, but this stuff was so cheap I had to try it. I wish I had bought more!) and zucchini, prepared simply with a little earth balance, salt, pepper, and italian seasoning.
And of course, and old favorite, wraps. I’ve been staying away from the flour tortillas and flat-out wraps (for obvious reasons) and wrapping things up in lettuce. I just can’t get on the corn tortilla bandwagon. I’m just not feeling them.
Some more pizza! I made this for when my family went up to Detroit to visit my Grandma/Aunt/Cousins. They always order pizza from this really great pizza place when we visit, and I didn’t want to miss out. I whipped up some g-free crust from a mix, then added tomato sauce, peppers, onion, pineapple, and daiya mozzarella cheese. So good!
Those are all the photos I’ve got for your today, but I plan on being back soon (I promise!) to share some yummy recipes that I’ve come up with recently!
