Being on a celiac diet has made one of the popular healthier diets – Atkins — easier, in that cutting out many sources of carbs meant that wheat and gluten was easier to avoid. Many dishes, even meals, for Atkins can be put together without bread, or pasta. A great example would be using mashed cauliflower instead of mashed potatoes for a dinner side dish. It takes roughly the same place as mashed potatoes, but without carbs or gluten.

The aroma of roasted vegetables is irresistible…
A simple, yet delicious lunch: Thai Peanut Sauce with Noodles and Green Beans Cook 1/2 pound of angel hair pasta, or your favorite noodles. Meanwhile, cook 1-1/2 pounds of frozen green beans until crisp-tender. Drain both pasta and vegetables. Combine and toss with ½ cup Thai Peanut Sauce and ½ cup chopped green onions. Season to taste and serve. Garnish with sesame seeds and chopped peanuts, if desired. (I used Mr. Spice Salt-Free Thai Peanut Sauce & Marinade (gluten-free) to make this recipe this time.)
…I was looking for a supper that would focus on a hot bread. I found a ripe Roma tomato on the counter, sliced pepperoni and shredded mozzarella in the refrigerator, and some fresh-picked basil from the herb garden, so gluten-free pizza bread could not be far behind!

…shining purple-black eggplant. My favorite way to cook them is simple and surprisingly low-calorie…It’s good for a gluten-free diet and a regular diet.

Gluten-free and Gluten-y family members alike will all absolutely love this beef round steak with vegetables from the crock pot recipe.
It's a classic stick-to-the-ribs family-style meal that is every bit as good as your favorite stew... And, you can thicken the delicious broth that you'll get after simmering for several hours in your slow cooker into a silky-smooth gravy that will make the meal even better.
This meal only takes 20-minutes or so to put together and then can simmer for as long as necessary... Whatever that means in your world. It's a low preparation-time recipe that you and your whole family are sure to enjoy.
This week's Gluten-Free Diet Menu Plan is high-lighted by a quick-and-easy 30 minute meal featuring Roasted Chicken Breasts garnished with veggies. I've used some of my favorite cut vegetables in Day 5's treat. However, you can modify the recipe to use yours!
But, no matter what you top it with... Steaming hot from the oven, it's sure to look good and taste delicious too!
... I usually use my own preference for the proportion of pasta to vegetables in this dish. Try it and decide what works best for you. I often cook more veggies than the recipe calls for. And, I'll keep them in a separate dish so that I can add more of them to my plate if the mood strikes me. Depending on how many carbs I've already had that day, I may skip the pasta entirely and just have my sauce with the veggies... I really like just the veggies in sauce sometimes. This is one of my family's favorite gluten-free ground beef recipes. The gluten-free sauce combined with the ground beef seasoned perfectly to your taste can be a marvelous addition to your meal time.
… As I looked around the Internet recently I noticed articles and comments about individuals becoming ill because they used condiments which were not gluten-free. I understand from first-hand experience how very easy it is to accidentally contaminate your food with condiments such as Worcestershire sauce, bouillon cubes and things like this. I’ve done it myself... I don't know how many times.
This week's Gluten-Free Diet Menu Plan is highlighted by the fact that it's got 2 Slow Cooker Meals and 5 quick, 30 Minute Meals. The meals are all quick or "no-brainer" easy! I guess it reflects the fact that I've been out of the office for several weeks on a temporary assignment. So I'm "knockin' 'em out" fast and furious today.
