Twice a week I enjoy a grain-free day. I could never fully go grain-free because I like way too many things that are grains, but on my two days of being grain-free I feel fabulous.
People think that going grain-free is difficult but you just have to find substitutions for your favorites. For instance instead of rice, choose quinoa. Choose almond flour instead of wheat or regular flour. Thicken gravies with arrowroot, not flour or cornstarch. Love pancakes? Make them homemade with flax, coconut flour, pumpkin and spices. Recipe coming soon!
Breakfast seems to be the easiest for me because I fill up on healthy carbs such as fruits & vegetables and protein. My go-to breakfast is this 5 Egg White Veggie Omelet Recipe & Fresh Cinnamon Fruit Bowl. It takes 5 minutes and is full of healthy ingredients to make you feel good. This is also gluten-free and Paleo friendly!Tip: At the beginning of the week, chop up your vegetables; onions, peppers etc. to save time when preparing hot meals.
