I’m going wheat/gluten-free. I’m going to give it a couple of weeks and see how it goes.

This actually won’t be so bad because Mr. Fleegan has been gluten-free for over a year. So any meals I’ve prepared in the last year have already been gluten-free, and I already know how to sub stuff and all that. Pretty much the only way this will effect me is my granola bars (which, i’m sure there’s a gluten-free kind out there, but I’ve been eating the Nutragrain cereal bars, usually for breakfast.) and also sandwiches. I love sandwiches. Um, and beer. I will miss beer most of all.

I will try to post any easy and delicious things i eat over the next week.

I did make a huge bag of “trail mix” with mixed nuts and dried cherries/cranberries. So in case I get a snacky urge and want a cookie (aw man, I love cookies.) I can grab a handful of nutty goodness.

For lunch I did have a delicious and filling awesome thing I made. And that’s the problem with no wheat lifestyle, you have to MAKE everything. And I am VERY lazy. So this thing I made? Must’ve been easy. You should try it too.

I made a tuna salad (one small can of tuna [in water] drained as much as possible, a table spoon-ish of Miracle Whip [or use mayo. or don’t, i don’t care], and i chopped up half of a banana pepper, bit of salt and pepper, and a couple of dashes of Tabasco [use your fave hot sauce. or don’t, I don’t care.])

Then, instead of me putting it on a piece of cheap white bread, which is delicious and how tuna salad prefers to be eaten, I sliced up a cucumber and put the tuna on the cucumber “crackers”.

Was it easy? Yes.
Was it tasty? Yes.
Did you take a picture of it? Yes. Wait, no. Damn it! I’ll take a picture of it this weekend. I think it’s going to be my lunch for the next week.

Also, this was a really cheap meal. I think the can of tuna was a buck, and the cukes were two for a dollar and they were huge, and I only used half of one, so, there you go. Eating healthy is an expensive endeavor, but this meal cost me less than 2 bucks, cos I had the banana pepper (thanks, Mark!), the MW, and the Tabasco in my fridge already.

I think the meal I’ll have the most trouble with is breakfast. This is mainly because I already have a hard time with breakfast. I’m super bad about drinking 900 cups of coffee and skipping breakfast. I think what I’ll try to do this week is make some hardboiled eggs and keep them in the fridge and just force myself to eat one in the morning.

I don’t know how this happened but, I’m into my thirties and I’ve never made a hardboiled egg. This is the weekend I’ll learn how to do it.

Anyone know how to make hardboiled eggs?
