Hi everyone. Tonight, I had gluten free spaghetti and gluten free meatballs with tomato sauce, salad, dressing and fresh blueberries on the side for dessert. The meal was 89 total carbs.. Everything was really delicious and each person had 4 meatballs. πŸ˜€πŸ‘

What did you have for dinner tonight? πŸ˜€πŸ‘

That’s great! Did the homemade fries have the potato skins on them?

Yes they did! That's the only way I consume my 'Taters. No matter how they are done.

That’s great! We have homemade fries that way, too when it’s possible and it’s not too hot at the time.πŸ˜€πŸ‘

I get that! I "pan fry " my fries. It's more work but less oil is used

We do pan and in the oven cooking when we have hotdogs/hamburgers for dinner.πŸ˜€πŸ‘

I had a crustless spinach and feta cheese quiche , turned out beautifully and delicious.Ingredients, 6 eggs, 500g of spinach, 100g of feta cheese, one medium sized onion, garlic, milk and cream.

Eat most all of it. Got a little left that I will have later today with some left over roasted chicken from the children evening meal, with some salad.πŸ™‚

That’s a great sounding dinner. Enjoy! Do you have any pictures?πŸ˜€πŸ‘

I didn't take pictures yesterday, but probably will today, I think you love the quiche, I think is was a bit under 100g of feta cheese as I didn't want to over powder the spinach with it. I will probably make another one soon and take a photo πŸ‘πŸ˜Š

Hi Leah,

Wow that is a very wholesome and delicious dinner you have! πŸ˜‹πŸ‘

It’s so healthy and balanced with GF spaghetti, meatballs and salad. Fresh blueberries are my favorite for dessert too!

I’m glad you enjoyed your dinner and maybe some leftovers for lunch tomorrow? πŸ˜πŸ‘

Thank you for sharing your wonderful dinner with us! πŸ€—πŸ™

P.S. I’ll make post about my dinner soon! πŸ˜‹πŸ‘

Thank you, Koko! Unfortunately, I don’t have any leftovers from tonight’s dinner, but I have gluten free elbows/macaroni we can do for another pasta night.πŸ˜€πŸ‘

I enjoy blueberries and fruit in general for certain desserts when it’s possible.πŸ˜€πŸ‘πŸ«πŸ

Oh great you have GF elbows/macaroni to make another pasta night. πŸ˜‹πŸ‘Fortunately, I have leftovers for lunch tomorrow so it’s gonna be an easy day. 😁

Nothing is like fruit for dessert! πŸ˜‹πŸ‘

This sounds really good to me. I have had a BLT a few weeks ago when we celebrated Father’s Day.πŸ˜€πŸ‘

Very tasty Leah! I'm not even going to share what I had for dinner last night. It has no place in a healthy eating forum!

I know what you mean πŸ˜‚well at least there's bit goodness in beansprouts 😁prob more goodness in pixies biscuits 😸I made sandwhiches with it too on white bread πŸ˜‚πŸ™‹

😁

πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚

I'm like that too. I sometimes have meals that can not be mentioned on HE as it would have no place on here πŸ˜‰ But I was good yesterday and opted for healthier options πŸ˜‚ I'm sure whatever it was you ate was most enjoyed πŸ˜‹

We're allowed to mention Nutella. Just between you and me πŸ˜‰

Oh wow that sounds nice . Does gluten free spaghetti taste different to that of normal spaghetti

Activity2004Administrator in reply to Sara_2611

Not really, but the way it is cooked is a little different. Some ingredients are a little softer than regular pastas. If you rewarm gluten free pasta, you want to not warm it up too much or it might have issues when taken out. We learned this a few years ago and the pasta was made with corn at the time. But, in general, I really enjoy it! :-)

I'd say the taste differs vastly for me from regular pasta depending on the ingredient(s) used to make the gf pasta. Personally, I find the closest is brown rice pasta to regular. I made my friend taste a meal I made and she agreed as well.

Some of the pastas we have are made with corn and the others are made from rice. :-)

Imaaan in reply to Activity2004

Nice! I've tried one with corn and quinoa before but much prefer rice ;)

Activity2004Administrator in reply to Imaaan

I never had the ones with quinoa yet. I'll have to see if they have any out by me in a few weeks from now. :-)

Looking forward to hearing your thoughts if you try them out ;)

I will have to check it out in a few days so I can put it on a list. It sounds really good. :-)

One of my favourite pasta dishes is Pasta with pesto because it is cooked with Olive Oil, others are my mum & dads spag bols & vegetables with Pasta & tomato pasta sauce

Activity2004Administrator in reply to Sara_2611

Does the tomato sauce your parents use have vegetables in it, too?

No I use pasta sauce from tescos - its low in sugar

Activity2004 profile image
Activity2004Administrator in reply to Sara_2611

That's good to know. We try to get pasta sauces from the local store and get those that are close to low carb./sugar as possible.

pesto is healthy as it contains olive oil

Sounds lovely Leah! and having only four Meatballs each - very impressive

Last night I had quorn vegan pieces with Chow Mein Sauce and salad, I did not have a dessert

Hi Debs,

Thank you! I really enjoyed everything and I will see what we will do for next week when we have pasta night.

Your dinner sounds great! It's been a while since I had Chow Mein for a meal. :-)

I am sure it will be something delicous, whatever you have. It was only a Chow Mein Sauce 😁

I was good and had a salad sandwich for lunch filled with fresh tasty simple veggies. Tomatoes, Lettuce and carrots and cucumbers and pepper and Mayo πŸ₯’πŸ…πŸ₯•πŸ₯¬ For my late evening meal I had a big bowl of fruits apples, avocado, grapes, bananas satsumers, and kiwis with some nuts and sun dried apricots 🍎πŸ₯πŸ‡πŸŒπŸŠ

Having taken my medication on Monday I'm very careful what I eat so go for light healthy meals that don't upset my stomach on Monday and Tuesday. I made a Baked beans curry for my family ( which they love with Chapatis or in toast or in a sandwich maker as toastie) I don't risk eating anything spicy on the day and the day after my meds. Will have something more enjoyable today.

Sorry for the late reply I'm always late in replying to post πŸ™„ πŸ₯°

Your meal sounds great. Recently, we had done our own baked beans by using pinto beans, bar-b-que sauce and a little sugar all mixed together. This is done whenever we don't have baked beans premade. They're used when we have either hotdogs and/or burgers. Very good.

The sandwich and fruit salad sounds great for warm weather temperature days, too. :-)

I bet home made baked beans are a lot healthier to eat as the sugar and salt content is higher in the shop bought ones. I do prefer fruit and veg on hotter days. Thanks you for sharing your delicious meal with us 😊

You're welcome! I will see what the plan is for later this evening. :-)

Lunch was cheese sandwich, gluten free bread and mustard and a peach Greek yogurt, today. :-)

Nice and light. Sounds good 😊

Activity2004Administrator in reply to Zara0123

Yes. Also, it's nice and fast, too. The cheeses we used are 3 out of 4 favorites of mine. Cheddar, Swiss and Muenster was used today. The fourth favorite we don't have and that was Provolone. :-)

Yes sandwich meals are best for lunch as easy to put together and are tasty too. I see you do have a love for cheese πŸ§€
