Weaning From Wheat

I started the Wheat-free lifestyle last September 1 but I am still trying to wean myself away from wheat.

So far, so good. I have not eaten bread, pizza, pasta nor pastries.

I ate at Lucky Rainbow twice in the last 4 days. There was wheat in the dumpling wrappers and wheat was used to ferment the soy for the soysauce.

But the rest was wheat-free. (I think?)

I also ate Raffles Sour Cream and Cheddar when I watched a movie with the Junkies yesterday.

One of the ingredients of the chips is MSG.

MSG is made from wheat.

Trying so hard to adhere to the lifestyle, I cooked Beef Sinigang the other night with fresh tamarind. The Knorr Sinigang Mix has MSG so I did not use it.

Bicol Express is wheat free. I have not added yet the green chili peppers when I took this photo.

Good thing Vicky gave me a wheat-free dessert!

Thank you!

I also want to thank Dra. Cristina for the Malagos Hot Chocolate Tablea! So thick and rich!!!!

Perfectly paired with Tinapa, red eggs and sweet fresh tomatoes!

I cooked Pinakbet but it took me about 30 minutes to finish a small serving!!!

Typical breakfast, 2 eggs and grilled tomatoes.

I found this very useful website,

Everything is summarized and so easy to follow. Just enlarge the photos.
