Check this out…I made supper for my friend who just had surgery.  I decided to make New Orleans Dirty Rice -- one of my favorites.  Since being GF, I have been making it from scratch for years…no more Zatarans.  Anyway, I needed to make enough for me to have supper too, but I didn't want to eat rice (still avoid grains), so for myself, I made Dirty Cauliflower Rice.  It's so YUMMY!!!  I think I'm onto something here...

+Bindu O. Fernandes , I LOVE the Against All Grain cookbook by Danielle Walker.  Her recipe for Cauliflower Rice is DELISH and very easy to make!  She also has an incredible one for mashed cauliflower that would pass for mashed potatoes any day.  +Esther Florez , I'm sorry to say, I didn't take a picture of this one.  But it WAS yummy!  :)

To encourage all of you Resetters…here are some before and after pictures from the first time I did Reset (beginning January 2010).  Mind you, these changes took place over a four-month Reset.  Worth every moment, good feeling, happy tummy, clear head, fit body.  I haven't looked back!

So…what did I eat the first day off Reset Phase I, you ask?  Well, I know…you didn't ask…but I wanted to show a pic anyway.  I invited my friend over for grain-free Eggplant Parmesan (crust was a mixture of almond flour, arrowroot, salt, pepper and Italian herbs).  I made my own sauce out of sautéed onions, garlic, can of chopped tomatoes, can of chopped fire roasted tomatoes, salt, pepper, fresh herbs from my garden.  It's not as heavy on cheese as it looks, but enough to make it yummy.  Spaghetti Squash with Pecorino Romano and fresh herbs; modified Caesar salad (avo instead of croutons) with homemade dressing (way homemade…I even made my own mayo to go into the dressing).  It was pretty darn tasty, if I do say so myself.

So yesterday was the final day of my second Reset program.  How did I do, you ask?  (Well, maybe you didn't ask, but I'm going to share anyway.)  I did great!  I had one tough evening in the midst of it where I chomped on some chips and salsa.  I learned 4 1/2 years ago when I first started seeing +Dr. John Cassone that food would never be the same to me.  It truly became fuel to my body, and I have never looked back.  Being gluten intolerant, and not liking the idea of eating processed foods (because it's crap fuel -- if it can even be called "fuel"), I live fairly close to Reset eating mostly whole foods and cooking from scratch.  But I hadn't been avoiding grains (even though I mostly only ate brown rice, quinoa, corn…things like that); however, I don't think my tummy likes it when I eat too many of them.  

What did Reset do to my body?  Since +Dr. John Cassone became my doctor years ago, and I did Reset the first time, I have been quite healthy.  But I am very in tune to my body, so I noticed a few things improve.  First, and most importantly, my stomach stopped having pains within a couple of days of starting Reset this time.  I lost a few of pounds.  I'm at a healthy weight, so that was just an added benefit.  My frazzled brain is clearer and concentration is better.

So…what have I learned about me and my body this time around on Reset?  I've learned:
1.  If I eat grains, I will be limiting them to no more than once a day.  I also know that the more I eat of them, the more I crave them and sugar -- probably because our bodies must turn them into sugar to be able to be processed -- so I must be aware.
2.  Planning is crucial!  Packing food to take with me everywhere I go is necessary.  I went to a tea while on Reset and could only eat the salad with no dressing.  Good thing I had food in my car, as I just excused myself for a couple of minutes, fueled my body with good portable food, came right back and no one was the wiser.
3.  I do far better making a meal plan for cooking at home.  It also helps with grocery shopping.
4.  I don't hate grocery shopping when (a) I have a meal plan and (b) I do it more frequently (instead of waiting til there's nothing in the house).

I truly LOVE the way I feel, so I will continue to be aware of fueling my body with high quality foods that work to improve my health.  Thank you, yet again, +Dr. John Cassone !  As always, you ROCK!!

Waited too long to eat today…just eating my first meal.  I'm usually on my second by this time.  However, I made this yummy smoked salmon scramble.

Tonight's supper...rotisserie pork roast coated in rosemary, thyme, garlic, olive oil, salt and pepper. And, of course, salad with Cuban garlic dressing.

3/4 c olive oil, 1/4 c white vinegar, 2 cloves garlic, minced, 1/4 tsp fresh ground pepper, 1/2 tsp each sea salt, dry mustard, dry oregano -- shake together in a jar.  Makes a great marinade for meats too!

Went to the Q-tips' house for supper (my pet name for my parents -- they have white fluffy hair and it makes them look like Q-tips).  Look!  Even Mom cooked Reset worthy!  Broiled fish with butter and lemon, steamed carrots with herbs and a salad.  (I had to bring my own dressing because they only had the processed bottled stuff that's full of gunk.)  BTW, my Mom had the audacity to say I was obsessive about nutrition.  Thank you, very much!  I'll take that as a compliment!

Check it out…a repurposed breakfast!  Leftover grilled pork chop, leftover sautéed spinach scrambled with eggs.  Of course, the orange isn't repurposed, but it's one of the last ones this season from my tree.
