Oatmeal on the Go

Oatmeal – really, Emily?

So, before this oatmeal recipe I really hated oatmeal. I mean, I disguised it. Since I’m on a sugar-free, gluten-free diet, my only breakfast option was eggs. I really wanted to expand that and after trying several oatmeal recipes, I finally found one I really like! The trick is to add in all kinds of great toppings and flavors. I never thought I would say this, but, now I think I’m falling in love with oatmeal!!

Oven Roasted Veggies

GF, DF, SF, Vegan, Paleo

These are the most amazing, flavorful, juicy roasted veggies – Ever! I found the recipe on google from The Wednesday Chef and just changed a few of the veggies to my liking. I have to admit, I’m not a big fan of cooked vegetables in general, (I prefer raw veggies) but with gastroparesis, cooking them is a must. I’m so happy to have found this recipe because I can eat these throughout the day, as a side or snack, and they stay good for at least a week, so I can keep them around for a while. It’s got some great juices in the bottom as well that keep it nice and moist. Get ready to fall in love!

Ingredients:

  • 1 Zucchini
  • 1 Butternut Squash
  • 3 Carrots
  • 3 Tomatoes
  • Potatoes- I like the mini yellow ones (5)
  • 1 Onion
  • 1 Bell Pepper
  • 7-10 Tblsp Olive Oil
  • 2-3 cloves Garlic
  • Thyme
  • Rosemary
  • Salt & pepper

Other ideas: Eggplant, Asparagus, Leeks, Beets, Broccoli & Cauliflower (not GP friendly for me), Fennel, Green beens, Persimmons, Turnips

Ohhh cookies! How I miss thee! These cookies are how I got through my sugar-withdrawals for the first month. You’re able to perform the action of biting into a real cookie, with real taste.¬†If focusing on sugar-free, just make sure to get dried fruit without any added sugar. The SMELL these cookies make while they are in the oven… well, you’ll just have to make some yourself!

Wet ingredients:

  • 1 large ripe banana
  • 3/4 cup unsweetened applesauce or 3 eggs
