Eating out I’m faced with a 10% chance that I will inadvertently end up eating something I shouldn’t and creativity at home prevents me from feeling deprived or limited. Because I can’t eat gluten or soy, and because I have to be careful of other foods as well, I’m continually trying different combinations that respect my limitations.
I like Subway’s roast beef sandwich (made without the bread), but the last time I was there I got glutened by careless handling of my order. It takes two weeks to recover which sucks, so creating my own roast beef sandwich became a must.
Safeway’s Primo Taglio house brand of roast beef is really quite good. I get it sliced the same thickness as deli cheese. Lucerne has sliced pepper jack cheese. With a bit of onion, some red and green pepper, a sweet Anaheim pepper and some cucumber and tomato, I get a sandwich that rocks.
