It is not difficult to make a fast food meal when you are vegan and gluten-free. It is as easy as opening the fridge and finding, avocado and gluten-free wraps. A little hummus and you have a tasty wrap. It is as easy as opening the freezer and finding frozen berries and frozen gluten-free pancakes and when defrosted and combined you have a really delicious breakfast. Craving a burger? Take a vegan gluten-free patty (great one at Costco) a gluten-free hamburger roll (tasty ones at Whole Foods Market) lettuce, tomato and condiments and you have a burger. Being vegan and gluten-free is easy, creative and downright gourmetish.
Lentils are one of the most nutritious foods, easiest to prepare, may be added to soups, rice or stews and its filling and low-fat. I have a jar filled with every color of lentils and a jar next to the lentils filled with every color of rice except white (no nutritional value and a very high glycemic index). I can take a cup of rice and a cup of lentils, add to the rice cooker and 4 cups of water, splash of rice vinegar, splash of toasted sesame seed oil, and assorted seeds (sesame, pepita, and pumpkin) and in ½ hour I have a meal. Be creative and add what you like, no rules here!
Being vegan and gluten-free is easy. There are always frozen veggies, pasta to be boiled and pasta sauce to be added to the thawed veggies and cooked pasta and you have a meal. Again, be creative and add what taste good to you.
Breakfast is one of my favorite meals. I toast two frozen, vegan gluten-free waffles and then add peanut butter and I have a sandwich. It can be eaten on the run or relaxed while reading the Chicago Tribune.
What are you waiting for, go eat!!!
