A Rundown of the Gluten-Free, Grain-Free Foods in the Food Slide Show

Some people simply like to enjoy the visual, sensual experience of watching my Food Slide Show without explanation. (It’s best to view the slide show with a high-speed connection.) Others want to know more specifics about the foods in the slide show. So, for those of you who want to know the details, here are the foods in the order they appear:

  1. Broiled grass-fed hamburger with red onion slice and zucchini, yellow squash, mushroom and cherry tomato medley
  2. Cucumber-red onion-dill salad and romaine lettuce salad with shredded carrot, chopped red pepper and vinaigrette
  3. Fresh organic strawberries
  4. Steamed Globe artichokes with Fresh Basil Lemon-ette Artichoke Dip (the recipe for this in my Going Against the Grain book)
  5. Steamed broccoli, cauliflower, carrots and snow peas
  6. Broiled lamb chop with oregano and fresh lemon juice; roasted zucchini slices, carrot slices and red pepper pieces with olive oil and herbs; and cucumber salad
  7. Banana-coconut muffins with pecans (muffins made with coconut flour)
  8. Baked lemon chicken with garlic and oregano, green beans almondine, and steamed broccoli topped with lemon chicken sauce
  9. Romaine, butter lettuce and radicchio salad with shredded carrot, topped with sautéed shrimp with herbs
  10. Raw fruit tart with date-nut crust, vanilla-apple filling, and berry center
  11. Broiled Middle Eastern chicken kabob; mushroom, zucchini, pepper, yellow squash and onion vegetable kabob;and tahini sauce on lettuce bed
  12. Roasted asparagus and mushrooms in olive oil
  13. Sliced fresh nectarines drizzled with vanilla-flavored coconut milk
  14. Roast turkey breast, homemade cinnamon cranberry sauce, apple-celery-walnut stuffing, broccoli and carrot medley, and pumpkin muffins
  15. Fresh guacamole surrounded by carrot sticks, celery sticks, radishes and Mexican flax crackers
  16. A batch of pumpkin muffins (made with coconut flour and mesquite meal)
  17. Spring salad with romaine, butter lettuce and radicchio, shredded carrot and sliced English cucumber
  18. Almond-flour muffin with half a Gala apple
  19. Cucumber and romaine lettuce garnish topped with chopped red pepper
  20. Poached salmon filet with dill; broccoli, cauliflower and carrot medley; and steamed pea pods

The great news is that virtually all of the foods in the slide show (except the roast turkey breast) take 30 minutes or less to make! (When you cut the grains out, it takes a lot less cooking time. I bet you didn’t miss those grains, did you?)

It goes to show that food can be appealing, tasty, good for you, and quick and easy to make all at the same time!
