Week One of Gluten-Free: Breakfast

I've decided to take the leap to a gluten-free lifestyle. Well, at least attempt it. I'm not doing it because I have an allergy or sensitivity, just to see if it aids with my health goals and weight-loss journey. So, if you're planning to serve me food, don't worry about it!

My dear friend Amy, who has been GF (gluten-free) for several years suggested that I start with one meal and slowly ease into it. What better meal to start with than breakfast? Each person in our house eats their own type of breakfast, so its easy to make something different just for me.

At Wegman's this weekend, I bought a GF bread mix to make my own bread, freeze, and have available for toast with eggs. I also picked up some Bisquick GF Waffle/Pancake mix, which I'll try and then make en masse and freeze like I do with the kids waffles for a quick toast in the morning.

I'd already made the switch to Coconut Milk Coffee Creamer, which just so happens to be gluten-free, so I'm set on my coffee. I think this week of GF breakfasts will be good and hopefully easier than I expected. Stay tuned for ways I make next week GF!

Rachel's Homemade Pizza Dough

I make mine in the bread machine. 1 cup warm water and one package (or the equivalent) of active yeast. Let it foam a bit and then add in 2 1/2 cups of flour, 1 teaspoon of sugar and 1 teaspoon salt. Then add 2 tablespoons of vegetable oil. That's it! 

Often I add a sprinkle of garlic salt just to give it something different.
