We went on a special trip to Palm Palace. I had a free birthday meal there, so we decided to eat out after church. After much deliberation, I got the quail with roasted vegetables and a side salad. Yummy! I also had their mint lemonade, which is fantastic.
Can this really be called a meal? It was what I ate while watching a movie...
Popcorn (air-popped, nutritional yeast, olive oil)
Blood Orange Sorbet in a GF cone
I had yummy leftover pancakes and bacon!
I had my salmon salad leftovers.
My mom made Mexican Sandwich filling in the slow cooker. It is a really simple recipe, but very tasty! I had some of that with tortilla chips.
A bowl of Joe's O's with almond milk.

Hello world! I am skipping September 18th and 19th because I honestly do not remember what I ate. Consequently, it must not have been all that exciting...
Yesterday was my birthday! My mom made me yummy pancakes, bacon, eggs, and orange slices for breakfast. Then I went and had my hair done up all fancy. My dad came home early and surprised us, so we went out for lunch and friend Kellie joined us. :) Then, I had dessert and opened presents, played Boggle, and went out for dinner with Ben! Overall, a very good birthday!
My mom made raw, vegan carrot cake muffins. Very yummy!
This was special. We went to a sushi place in Ann Arbor, and it was amazing. We went all out and had an appetizer, entrees, and dessert!
They brought edamame to the table like a bread basket. And then we ordered Tuna Ceviche. It was fantastic!
I ordered the sashimi platter, which was beautiful and delicious, and Ben got some fabulous sushi.
Then, I got their mango shaved ice with passion fruit beads and mango syrup on top. Yum!

I had some leftover oatmeal. I also enjoyed a smoothie I made with about a cup of frozen mixed berries with cherries, 8 oz POM juice, 6 ice cubes, and a third cup or so of goat yogurt. I added a squirt of lemon juice to brighten the flavor. It was tasty, but a bit too heavy on the yogurt.
Mom made a chicken, onion, yellow pepper soy sauce stir-fry. I had it over those no-calorie noodles. It was pretty good. The noodles are like glass noodles in texture, but it is strange for me to eat food that is nutritionally void.
Lucy's Brownie Cakes
I had a pack of these for a snack. They were pretty tasty for packaged gluten-free foods.

We tend to love leftovers. We cook a large enough portion at dinner for lunch the next day or so. Ergo, I eat a lot of the same thing over the week.
I had some of the Steel Cut oats recipe I posted at the beginning of this 30 day blogging challenge. I didn't soak it ahead of time, and I think I prefer the soaking method for digestibility.
I had a salad with avocado, cucumber, and a bit of goat cheese.
Air-popped popcorn with olive oil and nutritional yeast.

I grabbed a quick Kind bar on the way out the door. We played a game of Monopoly the night before, so I was tired!
This was one of the first times I haven't taken something to a potluck that I could eat. Instead, I brought my grandma's apple cake recipe. I was still able to find food to eat, though. A bunless burger. Some sauerkraut and Cole slaw. A few potato chips. A deviled egg. And some fruit.
We cooked up t-bones. I ate the filet portion and part of the strip portion. I mostly just enjoyed my salad topped with avocado, kalamata olives, onion, tomato, and bell peppers. I had a few raspberries to end the meal.
Soon, I intend to made a gluten-free adaptation of my grandma's apple cake recipe. I haven't had a successful batch in the past, but I hope to try again and introduce a fool proof recipe! I will present it with the originals, of course!
Toast with almond butter and homemade apple butter.
I was at a brunch for a WAR event (Women at Risk). I ate egg salad, ham, and fruit. In hindsight, I wish I had limited myself to just the fruit. It was all tasty, though.
Spaghetti and meat sauce.
Air-popped popcorn with olive oil and nutritional yeast and salt.
I also had a snack of chocolate, a few pistachios, and a couple crackers.
