Udi's Lemon Streusel Muffins
It was raining hard when I woke up. I decided that this was a perfect morning for a naughty breakfast. I picked up some Udi's lemon streusel muffins the last time I was at the store. They are gluten free, soy free dairy free, and nut free. I love Udi's bread so I figured I would try some of their other products; and this was just the morning to do it. The muffin was light and moist. I warmed it up in the microwave for a few seconds and sat in my bay window to watch the storm rage. The muffin had 43 carbs I drank one cup of almond milk with it, which had 2 carbs. This brought it to the perfect 45 carbs per meal that my nutritionist wanted me to work on. I feel stuffed. Next time I might try cutting the muffin in half and having some fruit with it. I was so excited when she told me my carbs were low and I needed more. Now, I'm not so sure. I feel like the Stay Puft marshmallow man. I feel bloated. I'm not sure how eating like this is going to help me Loose weight. I think that my dietitians main concern was getting my Hypoglycemia under control instead of loosing the weight; but shouldn't the two go hand in hand? Just my rambling thoughts. I'm sure this is not the type of breakfast she had in mind for me. Usually I avoid this type of sweet, but it was so yummy. We will see what happens in the days to come. In the mean time I'm going to pour myself a cup of tea, lean back, and watch the lightning shatter jagged cracks in the sky. I love a good storm, don't you? Enjoy!
Hello and welcome, I was diagnosed with Ehlers-Danlos Syndrome when I was 6 years old. With Ehlers come all sorts of medical issues to numerous to list. I have been gluten free for several years. The easiest thing to change is diet and it has changed my life.
This blog is my way of showing that Gluten Free and now Dairy free can be just as good or even better than their counter parts. If you have Celiac, a mild intolerance, or just don't like gluten filled foods I hope you will enjoy this blog. Enjoy!
