Diet Experiment

I briefly mentioned my idea of going "wheat free" for a week or so, just to see how it makes me feel. As a vegan, I eat a lot of wheat products--bread, pasta, crackers, etc. If I eat too much, I always feel a bit bloated.

So today is the beginning of my experiment. I'm going to try cutting wheat out of my diet entirely.

My planned meals for the day:

Meal 1: Oatmeal, soy sausage patties

Meal 2: Black bean soup

Meal 3: Salad with faux chickn strips

Meal 4: Rice balls made with sticky rice, nori and avocado

Meal 5: Raw almonds

We'll see how it works out.

mmmm, that sounds yummy - I can't imagine you'll be missing the wheat!!

Question-what kind of rice do you use?
I've seen recipes where people 'doctor' long grain rice with vinegar to make it sticky; yet I know that most true Japanese cuisine uses short grain rice.

I hope that this experiment works out for you. I have always wanted to be a vegan, but I can't seem to give up chicken : (

Best Wishes

WOW! Wheat-free is kinda major. Good luck!

I use short-grain white sushi rice when I make sticky rice. Rice vinegar is traditionally used to season sushi rice, I think.
