I brought a tofurkey and mustard sandwich, a small bag of pretzels, and an apple. I'm being cute with my first lunches at new job.

I took smokey split pea soup and a box of rice and peas but remembered when I got to work that I'd arranged to go for a curry with my sister for lunch, so ate the rice and peas when I got home this evening.

I LOVE these new low-carb pitas i found at the store. i really try and stay away from carbs (like pasta, bread etc) but these are really high in fiber and taste better than any store bought pita i have ever had.

It was a really filling lunch. but kind of um....how do i say this delicately?

i have to poop.

there i said it.

What are the pitas made of, ingredient wise? I would love to make my own low carb pitas. And poop is good!


Its this kind:
http://www.toufayan.com/pita/low-carb

not all that low carb, about 16g per pita, but i only eat half of one, (regular ones are over 40g per pita!). and they are delicious. I looked at the ingredients, but they didnt seem all that different from regular pita bread, it must be in the amounts of ingredients they put in them or something.

Hmm interesting... Looks like they subbed most of the wheat flour with vital wheat gluten and a couple of other low carb flours.
I got a little low carb inspiration too (after a carb binge yesterday) and baked a walnut/hazelnut bread, subbing the whole wheat flour with a mixture of equal volumes of vital wheat gluten, wheat bran and soy flour. I sweetened it with stevia. It turned out quite nicely, so that's my lunch and snacks for today.

Thought I'd be eating out today, but my meeting schedule made that impossible. So, I brought a frozen burrito. Basically the only thing I could find quickly this morning. I have cereal at work in case that's not enough.

I also brought a clif bar to eat toward the end of work before I go climbing!

Portobello pepper steak stew and caulipots! It's an AFR-tastic day all up in this.

I had a handful of raw almonds, dried cranberries, and choco chips for a midmorning snack, and this afternoon I have some fruit leather. Fruit leather is a new thing that I am enjoying.

Thank you for mentioning the portobello pepper steak stew. I had somehow never noticed the recipe. I made it for dinner tonight and it was awesome!

All those sound amazing! I did some leftover noochy spaghetti with 40 clove broccoli and chickpeas.

Today, I'll be home around 2:30 and I don't leave till 10:30ish, so I placed some root veggies/onions/garlic/ginger/beans/broth into the slow cooker, so I can come home to soup and some olive oil bread from the freezer.

Wow, so much AFR love!

I eat lunch and dinner out of the house, so I usually do some sort of veg-protein-rice thing in the bento for lunch and a stew with rice in the thermos for dinner.

Today's lunch was AFR baked falafel with hummus, and some brown rice with steamed broccoli and gomashio on top.

Dinner was the AFR seitan pepper steak stew thing with brown rice. And some clementines and strawberries for dessert.

I'm eating all AFR this week! Making the sushi roll salad for lunches all week! I made the rice and veg mixture last night so all I have to do is chop the lettuce and throw everything in my salad container in the morning.

Baked falafel, herb cauliflower, tamarind bbq tempeh & sweet potatoes, black bean zucchini and olive tacos, and 40 clove chickpeas and broccoli.

It's an all AFR kind of week at my house!
