I’m not a believer in any dietary regime that restricts entire food groups. . . But I definitely like a lower carbohydrate gluten free diet. I’ve noticed in myself (and my children) that grains are not our friends. At the same time, when I try a completely grain free diet, I get sick. . . so there must be a balance.
We are aiming to introduce more alternatives and eat less overall grain servings (2-3 per day). For me, this may be a serving of gluten free oats and a serving of brown rice.
Tonight for dinner, I made a winning meal. . . everyone gobbled it up.
Mini Meatloaves or Large Meatballs. . . whatever you want to call them, we call them GONE.
1 lb chicken sausage (clean, no sugar)
2 lbs 90% ground beef
1/2 cup strained tomatoes (no sugar, no additives)
2 free range eggs
1/2 – 1 cup hard mixed cheeses-grated (we used an Italian blend)
salt, pepper, garlic
Mix everything together (I used my hands). Bake in muffin tins at 400F for about 35 minutes or until internal temperature reaches 180. . . this made 18 muffin cups of meatloaf.
We enjoyed creamy cauliflower soup and herb salad with our meatballs.
