Good morning!

For the next 40 days, my husband and I are ridding our home and our bodies of sugar and WHITE flour. We still use stevia, and will use a TAD of maple syrup for smoothies and such. But other than that...they're out!

However, now I'm at a loss. What do I eat? I know there is LOTS to eat! And we did just have SIX pounds of GOOD cheese arrive in teh mail!

But what are your STAPLES for sugar/white flour free?

TBH, I would LOVE to continue this AFTERwards...so getting a plan NOW will be imperative!

Thank yoU!

Mrs B

Is whole wheat flour acceptable? If yes, then some whole grain breads would be okay and whole wheat pasta, also. Be sure to read labels. A lot of what is labelled whole wheat is not really whole wheat at all.

For a meal, any meat or fish, a veg, a good salad and if you like a starch with your meal, a potato made some way, brown rice or whole wheat bread. Simple, easy and good.

Lentils make a terrific meal. Do a search for honeybaked lentils and there's a recipe by a mom here on MDC that should pop up. Delish! If you Google it, this recipe will show up, too.

You can check the traditional foods forum, the vegetarian forum, do a search on whole foods diet, low glycemic diet, etc. and that should pull up some possiblities.

Quiche, frittata, omlettes, chef salad, chicken soup ( no noodles) chili, beans and corn tortillas, vegetable or chicken stirfry served over brown rice...this is all I can think of off the top of my head.

Good luck!



P.S. Here it is. Post #54 has the honeybaked lentil recipe. This is a whole thread full of lentil recipes. And maple syrup or molasses can be subbed for the honey, if honey is not okay.

Off the top of my head - this is my current favourite quick meal. It's easy to make, delicious, tastes good hot or cold, is great for lunch or supper or even breakfast...

Preheat oven to 375F/190C.

1 medium zucchini, in one inch/2 cm cubes

2 cups/500 mL cottage cheese

3 eggs, beaten

1 cup/250 mL Cheddar cheese, cubed

3 Tbsp/45 mL melted butter

3 Tbsp/45 mL flour

1 clove garlic

1 tsp/5 mL dried basil

1/2 tsp/2 mL salt

1/4 tsp/1 mL pepper

Grease a pie plate.
In a bowl, combine all of the ingredients. Mix well.
Pour into the pie plate.
Bake for at least 1 hour, until a knife inserted in the middle comes out clean.
