A Winter Week of Food- Gluten Free

Friends and Family:

It is the end of the semester, and Andy is pushing molars through. Sleep for everyone is irregular, and (again) all I can manage is a week of food planning.   This week we’re cutting gluten entirely, to see if it helps with the sudden onset of post-meal sloth I have been experiencing.  This means we are depending on the following grains: quinoa, millet, oat groats, brown rice, as well as potatoes and sweet potatoes for additional starches. We do not love buckwheat, but are interested in other gluten free grains that you love, that we might include in our diets. Please give us some suggestions!

I do hope to do more with this journaled space soon.

To health!
