Navigating the wheat free, gluten free diet

Another Saturday and I’m up way too early again. I was just watching the Today Show as I thought it would help me go back to sleep (what?? Matt and Meredith aren’t even there on Saturdays), when I saw a familiar face.

A couple years ago, before my great food shift into the gluten-free world, I was an avid reader of A co-worker who always seems to be on a diet had showed it to me, and I found the site’s witty take on unhealthy foods and recipes for really lo-cal alternatives to be pretty motivating. Now it seems Lisa Lillian has published a few successful Hungry-Girl books and appears regularly on Today.

I didn’t always try the recipes on the site, as many of them required a pantry full of base items that I didn’t always keep around, like tofu shirataki noodles and ground up Fiber One cereal to use as breadcrumbs. What I really enjoyed was the News section, which always had up-to-date info on lo-cal foods in restaurants and new healthy foods hitting the market.

She also compares items with their competitors to see which one was the healthiest and the tastiest. Reddi-Wip vs. Cool Whip in a can? Reddi-wip all the way.

Even with all the success, the site remains virtually the same in format and content. She’s even thrown in a couple of gluten-free news bits. Yep, I’m adding her to my Google Reader.
