A Paradigm Shift of Sorts
I went to a Gluten Free Fair at our local Natural Grocers. One of the sheets that we received was a sheet with a modified % of each of the food groups to eat daily. I have realized that I eat a sad number of vegetables. However, I saw a book called The No Grain Diet, and while I don't subscribe to all of the ideas adopted by the author, I have used this way of thinking to help me eat more veggies and cut out the need to make often expensive or time consuming "bread" decisions. I have been thinking of "veggies" that can take the place of "breads and pastas" in meals. I have made a pasta of sorts out of zucchini strips shaved thin on the mandolin and have used nori sheets as "wraps." The new way of thinking has greatly increased the amount and variety of vegetables that have been incorporated into my meal choices.
