Bento, Day 4

It’s been too long since the last bento post! And since bento.

ETA: it’s been so long that I forgot my lunch at home. Um. Oops. At least the lunch bag is insulated and filled with ice pa I guess lunch will become dinner, and today’s lunch is going to be difficult to put together in the cafeteria. Argh.

First, some blithering:

I’ve decided to go dairy-free. And for now, I’m on a trial of gluten-free as well. Thus far I’ve not had to take the enzyme pills I used to in order to digest food, and my tonsil crypts only get filled when I break diary and a little filled when I’m off dairy and broke the gluten-free… so… it kind of sounds like this is the way for me to go.

*cries over lost cheesecake and bread*

I did order The Uncheese Cookbook, for the dairy-intolerant who miss cheese and don’t like the cheese substitutes on the market; and The Gluten-Free Gourmet Bakes Bread, which also has bread machine instructions for large, medium, and small (mine!) machines. I have hope.

Also, do you know how hard it is to find gluten-free muesli? Not even Bob’s Red Mill has any. *weeps* I did find some on Amazon, and they’re on their way.

And now, bento:

  • 3/4 cup of grapes
  • 1/3 cup of store-bought applesauce ((I really need to start making my own again. This is a more expensive sauce, but still only okay.))
  • Mabo Tofu with a bit too much TVP and quinoa

  1. Let me know what you think of The Uncheese Cookbook. I’m too timid to actually buy it and try some of the recipes… (1) because I don’t like to cook and (2) I’m scared off by the negative reviews on Amazon.

    My chiropractor thinks going gluten-free might be the next step in controlling the fibro. Giving up cheese AND bread?? **weep**

  2. You have my sympathies on giving up dairy and wheat. Those make up a huge proportion of my diet.

    I’m really surprised about the muesli; I would not have expected it to contain dairy ever.

    Kelly, maybe your local library has The Uncheese Cookbook? Or some other dairy-free ones? The library can be a great way to try books out before you decide whether you want a copy to keep.

  3. @Wogglebug… Ah! Yes… I think I will plan a trip to the library’s website so they can direct the book to my local branch if it exists in their system. Oh, how I love the Internet!
