So in the next month I will be experimenting with the Wheat Belly Diet.
The Wheat Belly Diet suggests that, like many things, wheat is not what used to be due to human tampering. And that by the elimination of wheat products, unhealthy oils, sugars and high glycemic flours, one can have a healthier being. Perhaps even clearing up brain fog, skin flaws, digestion ailments, the list goes on and on.
So here I go. Downloaded the book and the supplemental 30 minute recipe guide Wheat Belly 30-Minute (Or Less!) Cookbook and now I just have to follow the rules. I more or less did with this fantastic wheat free Sunday brunchfest.
Open- faced Ham and Egg Sandwich with Arugula and Mandarin Orange Salad
1 slice gluten free bread
(I used Udi's because I haven't made the Wheat Belly mix yet. Udi's while gluten free, would not be on the Wheat Belly Diet due to the flours they use.)
2 slices organic ham
2 slices organic roma tomato
1 slice organic cheese
salt and pepper to taste
1/2 cup arugula
1 mandarin orange
Set your oven to broil temp.
Lightly toast the bread.
Layer the bread with ham, tomato and cheese. Broil until the cheese is melty.
While broiling prepare an over easy egg in a skillet.
Plate arugula with the mandarin orange. It really needs no dressing as both flavors are so strong.
Top the sandwich with the egg and enjoy!
This couldn't be easier or yummier. I great replacement if eggs benedict was your favorite thing.
