Vegan MoFo: My stupid stomach!

I know I've mentioned it before, but I suffer with acid reflux. After my doc's latest messing around with my medication, I had about 3 weeks where I was having pain every night. So as the medication didn't seem to be kicking in, I decided to try just eating really healthily and eating less wheat and cutting out sugary stuff, which seems to set it off. So far this week, I've been good and fingers crossed it stays that way.

So I haven't given up wheat, but I've been eating spelt or gluten free products instead of wheat where I can and am laying off the sugary things and not baking for a week or so (weekend away next weekend so I'll be baking then! :0) )

Today's dinner, I roasted up some brussels, some asparagus and some sugar snap peas to go with some polenta. It was just 1/4 cup polenta, cooked in 1 cup of hot water, 1/2 tsp of vegan stock paste, about a tsp of sun dried tomato paste and 2 sun dried tomatoes chopped nice and fine. It was awesome!

Yesterday I made a stir fry with asparagus, pak choi, baby corn, mushrooms, tempeh, spring onions and cooked rice noodles. The sauce was just tamari, lemon juice, chilli flakes and 5 spice powder. Simple but really tasty.

I didn't bother posting the pic of the soup I made today - I think this blog is souped out for a bit!



  1. that stinks on the acid reflux, Sal. i'm sorry! i hope it goes away soon or that the medication starts working better. i used to have heart burn a buuunch, but since going gluten-free i haven't had a problem. didn't even think that might have been contributing to it. that's great that you're cutting gluten when you can. i bet it helps, fo 'sho! your plate of roasted veggies and the sun-dried tomato polenta looks awesome, so does your stir-fry. huzzah for more delicious eats! we haven't had polenta in probably half a year - i think i know what we'll be making soon. mmmmm!

  2. ooh I hope you're able to keep the BS health stuff at bay!

    Have you tried those omega 3 rye breads? Holley set me on those and they're amazing! Usually in the free from sections.

  3. I so need to try polenta - I've still not cooked it or eaten it!

  4. The food looks really delicious. I hope you're feeling better!
