I Can’t Re-Heat Them | Pierogies

The other night we made home made pierogies! They were SO good. We have some more testing and tweaking to do, but for a formerly non-Baker this felt SO liberating!

Having a unique digestive system, my hubby and I had to work together! Thankfully we make an awesome team in the kitchen. Could be because one of us used to cook professionally… and the other is called Mom 😉

I learned many years back that I had a unique digestive system, I was just too ignorant back then to listen to my body. Honestly though, part of it was I didnt want to be an inconvenience to anyone. So eating at someone elses house, at a restaurant. It was many years later that I learned I couldn’t eat any reheated starches. Rice, pasta, potatoes etc! If I did I would experience almost immediate pain, major discomfort, bloating and multiple bathroom runs. Let’s keep it real, but mature 😉 It hit me one day, I had reheated my lunch at work and not long after eating this all began.

Alot is mindset. Because I KNOW I cannot reheat these foods, at times causes me to over eat. I “justify” because I need to enjoy it now… BS!

We are getting so much better at just simply making smaller portions. At times this doesn’t happen and I feel guilty about throwing food out that cannot be eaten again.

Here’s the thing. When someone has something physically wrong with then, like a broken limb you can SEE and understand why they need different support.

So why, in the big picture, should I feel any different with my health issues and supporting my body the way it should be?! I SHOULDN’T and yet I DID!

However since the early winter, since I was given a taste of how even more amazing I could feel… its NOT worth it! Its not worth putting my comfort and health aside because I “might” be an inconvenience… especially when I’m not!

Emotionally this can really do a number on people to, I know because I used to do this to myself! I’m so happy I can say USED TO!!!

Check out our home made pierogies! I loved them and am excited to try this recipe again!

The Recipe

  • 2 cups Gluten Free Flour Mix
  • Salt to taste
  • 1/4 cup EVOO
  • 1 large egg
  • 1/4 cup Lactose Free Greek Yogurt
  • 1/4 cup warm water
  • Add more water slowly as required

Mix the ingredients together, we used a dough hook in our kitchen aid mixer for ease.

Add flour to your counter before rolling out the dough. We used a large glass to make our circles. We added the old cheddar and bacon to the dough before adding the potatoes. Next time I would mix the cheese and bacon with the potatoes simply for ease! A little goes a long way!

Once you have the pierogies ready, drop them into boiling water. Once they float move them over to a medium-hot frying pan to brown to taste!

Top with your favourite toppings and enjoy!
