Gluten Free Friday....Uh...Sunday

As you have heard in my last several entries, I am on a journey of becoming gluten-free. This will be a transition, for sure. I have start making many changes, like incorporating gluten-free recipes into most of my meals. If I notice a substantial difference in my health, maybe then, I will make the full conversion.

It has already proved itself though. Not physically, but my overall awareness of what I eat has shown itself. I have generally eaten pretty healthy...or so I thought. Then, as I researched more into Paleo and GF, I have noticed that I do not eat nearly enough fruits and vegetables as I should!!! So this past grocery visit was an eye opener. The majority of my foods were purchased in the first aisle.

Here was today's stock pile of GF approved foods...
  • Pinapple
  • Bananas
  • Apples
  • Avocados
  • Sweet Potatoes
  • Strawberries
  • Lemons
  • Limes
  • Spinach
  • Carrots
  • Broccoli
  • Sugar Snap Peas
  • Cucumbers
  • Zucchinis
  • Yogurt
  • Eggs
  • Sirlon Steak
  • Turkey
After playing Super Market Sweep at Target, I journeyed to Britner's produce for some CORN!!!

I got enough to have for lunch, dinner, and additional servings to freeze.

That is GF pizza crust, by the way :-)

Anyway, before I get side-tracked about the glory of corn, it is GF Friday! I am just late on this, but I want to share one GF receipe that I have tried & loved every Friday. So far, all that I have tried, I have loved. But we will start with this sexy meal...

Spicy Sriracha Chicken Over Quinoa

  • 1 C dry Quinoa, cook according to package directions
  • 1/4 C Virgin Coconut Oil 
  • 1/2 C Green Onion, chopped  
  • 1/2 Green Pepper, diced
  • 2 LBS Chicken Breast, cut into bite-sized pieces
  • 1/2 C Sriracha (we suggest going less, unless you like to feel the burn!!!)
  • 1/4 C Agave Nectar
  • 1 TBSP Lime Juice
  • Black Pepper to taste
  • Garlic Salt to taste
  • Cilantro to taste
  1. Melt oil in large saucepan on medium heat. Sauté onions & peppers until soft. Add chicken & cook until browned.
  2. Mix together syrup, lime juice & Sriracha in a bowl.
  3. Add the sauce to chicken & simmer for about 8 minutes and chicken is cooked through. Stir through out. Season to taste with pepper & garlic salt.
  4. Finish with cilantro and serve over prepared quinoa.
 Try it out and let me know what you think of this delicious meal!

By the way, I have returned to running again! But that will be a separate post on it's own!

Do you like spicy foods?

  1. Not big into Spicy food, and I don't do diets, so I have a bit of a problem...
