Ed and I are working on going gluten free again. It’s time that we got back on track to get this PCOS under control. And I say we because Ed has chosen to suffer with me! We did quite a good job of it pre-parental issues and managed to lose some weight but because of holidays and stressors, we pretty much gained it back.
So, we decided to start on Monday. I had 3 Day #1s this week, where I would have a slip-up. Today, after eating my yogurt with hemp hearts, I got hungry so I walked to the café at work and bought myself and English muffin. The jar or peanut butter sitting at my desk was calling to me.
Ed usually hates healthy food. When we first moved in together, we had a whole cabinet full of snack foods. The man has come a long way. He used to eat Cheese Nips, Oreos, a bowl of chips each night and now, he actually looks at veggies! I had told him way back that the first year of living together, I’m cooking him nothing but veggies. He used to hate zucchini and broccoli and now he “doesn’t mind them”.
Last night, we had the most delicious zucchini lasagna! We had made it once before but lost the recipe, so we decided to wing it. In case anyone wants it, here is our recipe:
Zucchini Lasagne (Ed and Linn’s “winged” recipe)
1 Zucchini (thinly sliced)
Ricotta cheese (we got a 250 mL container)
Mozzarella cheese, grated (roughly 2 cups)
1 can pasta sauce
1 can tomato paste
1 lb lean ground beef (we usually use ground chicken or turkey)
Garlic, minced (1 wedge? – Don’t judge but the term is escaping me right now)
Happy cooking! And here’s to another Day #1 tomorrow!
