So today, I recreated an old favorite of mine from back in my gluten-eating days - salad sandwiches. Sounds crazy, right? But my Italian dad always did this, so I did too!
So make a small salad with your favorite greens, but for some reason, I love a tiny bit of torn iceberg mixed into my field greens and romaine mix for this application. Add a bit of diced tomato and cucumber. Also, add a small amount of thinly slivered sweet onion. The onion taste is really important to this, but a tiny amount is all that is needed. To this salad, add a good sprinkle of sea salt and a few cracks of pepper. Use a microplane or small grater to grate a very small amount of parmesan into the salad. Toss with a very small amount of your favorite vinnaigrette. If you make your own, you can keep it E. Allow salad to sit and wilt, about 10 minutes. Toss well a few times.
While salad is wilting, mix up a batch of trim healthy pan breads, but to batter remove about 1-2 tbs of oats and replace with golden flax meal. Add 2 tbs of nutritional yeast, a few pinches of those minced dried onions or onion powder, and a sprinkle of garlic powder. Add a few pinches sea salt, too. Cook these as recipe directs.
Take 2-3 panbreads, and holding each like a taco, fill with salad, and then chomp away. It's a mess, and you can't eat it politely. It's so delicious, though. Don't eat it without a napkin and maybe eat it all by yourself - I always look like a hog eating salad sandwiches. It is quite filling. I ate it today with a simple chicken broth anything soup. Very nice.

grammalynda: if there isn't a reply button on a thread (too old maybe?) should I start a new thread for that subject?

steffanie3: Hmm, on the upper right as long as you are logged in there should be a reply button, but you sure can start a new thread if you want

grammalynda: I figured it out-when you do a search it takes you to the conversation-there is not a reply button-but the name of the thread is listed above the date and if you click that it takes you to the thread and the reply button. thanks stefanie3 and rebekahrl

glammom: Any suggestions as to where to purchase MCT oil? All new stuff to me. Purchase many items for plan on-line, some at Kroger, some at Trader Joes and Whole Foods. Any suggestions of locations to purchase MCT oil at brick and mortar stores?

steffanie3: GNC would likely have MCT or a health food store that carries Now Brand, that is one easy to find kind.

ttate53787: I have been put on a low residue diet. I am only allowed to eat refined grains. In order to follow this plan now would I just have to give up all breads? Any guidance on this type of diet? Thanks.

steffanie3: I haven't heard of a low residue diet, maybe make a post of a suggested menu you have been given and we could help?
