Best Week Ever!
At my co-op there is a brand of frozen chicken nuggets and patties called Bell and Evans . They are a super clean company (no hormones, antibiotics, etc.) and their chicken is SUPER good. It was one of my pre-Celiac diagnosis faves.
So imagine my surprise yesterday when the Meat Buyer at my co-op told me she was getting in Bell and Evans gluten-free chicken nuggets! At first I was skeptical. I have tried the Ian's GF nuggets and they were pitiful. I also had tried other "full of gluten" Bell and Evans products...so I was on the fence.
They are DELISH! Really really good! The cafe at my work baked some for me today for lunch. (Which was really handy because I didn't wake up in enough time to prepare my lunch today) I don't even think that a non-gluten free diet person could tell that these are gluten-free. They come not cooked, so you have to bake them. But my cafe keeps them in the fridge so I had to nuke them. And the integrity of the product was not lost!
This week is going great! First gluten free mac and cheese and now nuggets! But I will def have to get on the dreadmill (my treadmill) tonight! I was losing a ton of weight because I was basically just eating veggies BUT now I keep finding great substitutes that I like!
