Changing It Up

January 30th, 2008 · 14 Comments

Coping with a diagnosis of celiac disease or food allergies and learning to eat healthfully can have some very key things in common: they teach you to look for alternatives to what you formerly consumed. They teach you to combine foods in new ways. They teach you to seek out foods you formerly wouldn’t have […]

Tasty Soy-Free Veggie Stirfry

January 29th, 2008 · 17 Comments

I love a good stirfry, but it took me many years to learn how to make one correctly. Growing up, I would make stirfries from frozen, pre-made stir-fry packs. Basically, I would boil the vegetables and possibly some meat in soy sauce and their own juices and then serve them over watery minute rice. I […]

Pizza & Movie Night: A New Tradition

January 28th, 2008 · 11 Comments

As many people do, I sometimes have trouble letting go of my workweek so that I can slide into the enjoyment of my weekend. I’m fortunate to have a job that has to do with making the world a more equitable place, and most of the time, I enjoy my job. But when the weekend […]

Weekly meal plan for mid-winter

January 18th, 2008 · 3 Comments

 We’re back from our 8-day vacation to Seattle and Vancouver, BC.  Isn’t it amazing how eating restaurant food—even really great restaurant food—over a period of several days makes you crave some home-cooked meals that you can eat in the relaxed privacy of your own home?  We ate some of the best food that the Pacific […]

Vegetarian Shepherd’s Pie & Dijon Avocado Salad (A Healthy, Easy, High-Veggie Meal)

January 10th, 2008 · 7 Comments

This is a recipe I adapted from a Vegetarian Times recipe last year. The VT version was okay, but I wanted to boost the flavor quotient. As you can see, I used the staple aromatics I mentioned in a recent post to keep this healthy and make it more flavorful. This meal was a big […]

First 3R Success! Plus Reports on Other Recent Meals

January 4th, 2008 · 9 Comments

I just ate risotto leftovers for lunch–delicious. Here is the recipe for the pumpkin/spinach/cheese risotto my husband made for us, except he made these changes: He used leftover, homemade chicken broth instead of veggie broth; He used 2 small acorn squash, 1 small butternut squash, and 1/2 can of pumpkin instead of pumpkin; Rather than […]

Post-Holiday Eating, or Getting Back on Track

December 31st, 2007 · 5 Comments

As many people did, I indulged a bit over the Christmas holiday week. I was saved from seemingly endless co-worker-made indulgences, subcontracter/vendor gifts, client gifts, etc., by the fact that I couldn’t eat anything anyone brought to me. (My husband could, and did. We passed the rest of it along to grateful relatives.) But I […]

State of the Sally plus Still Sick Soup

December 28th, 2007 · No Comments

We got home from our holiday trip yesterday–home after having no real internet access on our trip, home after a drive that stretched to two days due to traffic, home with me still lingeringly sick with the illness I had when we left. And home after eating someone else’s cooking for a week. Our hostess […]

Using up a leftover vegetable tray

December 4th, 2007 · 3 Comments

We can all use some lighter meals to counterbalance our holiday indulgences this time of year; that’s why I planned to have a (soy-free) vegetable stir-fry for dinner. Then I realized (bonus!) that I could use up some of the sliced vegetables that were sitting in our work fridge, left over from the party on […]
