GF Day 23 and some recent eats!

So the GF thing is going well. My migraines occur much less frequently and I feel less foggy and scattered and my IBS issues seem almost entirely resolved. Wow.

Here's some food!

Another omelet - daiya, mushrooms, tomatoes and spinach - yummy!

Tempeh Scramble from Vegan Brunch! I've realized I'm note ating nearly enough tempeh so I'm trying to fix that. It's a precious commodity around here - hard to find. The overpriced HFS is frequently out but I realized Harris Teeter sells it (though only the 3 grain and the soy) for $2.49. Otherwise, to Raleigh I go.

The Veganomicon Tomato/Rice/Bean soup. Livi's eating it! Woo!

Dal soup! Because even though I want to, I can't go to the Indian Buffet every day. The first time I went there, they had a dal soup that was so good I wanted to eat only that forever. It wasn't quite as good last time, but their food is so good! Here's mine.

I'll work on specifics, but the recipe is basically:

1 cup split yellow mung beans
3 cups broth
3 cups water
2 carrots finely diced
1 tomato finely diced

That part is definite but I have to remember all the spices I used and how much of each. I used:
ground coriander
cumin seeds
fenugreek
turmeric

... and I forget what else. I used 1/2 to 1 tsp of each.

At the HFS yesterday I got me and Livi some Sweet and Sara goodies (I can't believe my lousy HFS actually sells them!). I got Livi a snowman and the rocky road bark for me - SO GOOD.

Very nice dishes! If you could post particulars of how much cumin, fenugreek, etc. to use for the Lentil Soup, that would be awesome.

Peace :)

I'm trying to remember! :D I'll post the specifics as soon as I get it figured out. Tomorrow probably!
