When people find out about my slew of dietary restrictions (vegetarian, gluten-intolerance, peanut allergy), and that my husband eats everything but is lactose-intolerant, questions are always asked.
“What do you eat at home?”
“How do you eat together?”
“Is it hard to eat out?”
So, I’ve decided to write a series of posts about what it is we eat, and how I meal prep to accommodate for all our dietary restrictions, in the hope that this will help others who are in similar situations.
For the first post in this series, I’ve decided to capture what our meals at home look like. I am a huge fan of meal prep, so our meals are usually prepped during the weekend and assembled and eaten during the week.
I have attempted to use my gluten-free/vegetarian diet to my advantage, and have become more creative with my recipes. Luckily, Ashok is not a huge bread or pasta person, which makes coming up with recipes that are suitable for both of us a bit easier. I also tend to drift towards cuisines that are naturally gluten-free (i.e. rice based, corn based, etc). As far as the meat, we always find meals that are vegetarian at baseline, and can easily have meat added to them.
Here are some examples of our meals from the past couple of months.
Stay tuned for part 2 of this series! I’d love to hear your comments and questions on this topic, or if you have any ideas or recipe inspiration.
