Graduation & Gluten Free

I officially picked up my graduation cap and gown on Monday!!!!! It feels so close and is coming so fast! All I have left is finals week. Naturally I’ve been more stressed lately, and it caused a major pressure headache the other day, it hurt like hell, which made me realize I need to get back into my yoga practice.

So that’s the update with graduation and now there’s another factor that is changing my life, I’m going gluten free. At least for a little bit. I don’t have celiacs disease (or at least don’t believe I do, I haven’t gotten examined by a doctor for it) but I am tired all the time, even after getting a good nights sleep. I figured I would try going gluten free to see if it makes a difference in the way I feel. Last night was the first gluten free night and my roommate Maria made a really good meal, chicken with white beans, tomatoes, and feta cheese. It was really, really good!! I’ll post the recipe with pictures next time I make it. For tonight’s lunch I made a quinoa black bean and avocado wrap (with a GF wrap of course), I put a little bit too much avocado, it overpowered the whole taste but overall it was really good.

Tonight’s dinner was GF Pad Thai! And since I work at a cookie bakery, and it’s really hard for me to resist eating cookies/cookie dough every day, I decided to try making some GF peanut butter chocolate chip cookies (which are my current favorite at work). This way when I start craving cookies while at work, I can still eat one and stick to the GF diet. All four of these recipes will be up soon, with many more to follow.

What’s your favorite GF recipe?
