I have gone four weeks now without wheat. It's not so much that I want to omit a food group, but it's a way to get a little control of the carb intake. I just wanted to see how far I can take it, and it's not so bad. With some foods it's an all or nothing sort of thing for me. Going wheat free has cut out all the things that I probably was overdoing with all the BLT's ( bites, licks tastes!!) I'm still having corn and oats, so not grain free, but baby steps for now! I lost 4 pounds in the 4 weeks. Not a world record by any means, but I confess I wasn't tracking carbs during that time and like I said I did have corn and corn products. Going forward I'm going to tighten up on that and get back to counting the carbs and sugars.
So here is a great recipe that have helped me with breakfast. This is a recipe that my DIL ( daughter-in-law) shared with me from the Dukan diet. It's basically a pancake and there are similar recipes out there, but this one is easy and because it's French it's called a Galette!! Oui Oui!! So fancy!!
