While we’re at home on a weekend, lunches are frequently soup and salad. When we’re on our way somewhere, though, I won’t pack soup for lunch — too messy in the car! Neither does a sandwich work, but for a different reason: my hubby carries sandwiches every weekday, so he’s willing to have something different on a weekend. I like to make something without the bread partly because it’s simpler to prepare, partly to keep our carbs down some, and partly just for the variety, to offset possible boredom from his weekday lunches. Sometimes I’ll cut cubes from a lean roast beef like I’ve mentioned before. I especially like a round eye roast, or a bottom roast cooked the same way, [...]
A gluten-free dish with zip that’s healthy and also easy to fix — that’s a good one to pull out of the recipe box! The shrimp provides the low-fat protein, the vegetables add more flavor and nutrition, and the seasonings can be as peppy as you like. It’s a light, filling dish for a gluten-free diet.

From a Texas Hill Country town founded by German immigrants comes the best chili I know — adapted from my Oma, although she would have used at least twice as much chili powder, or sometimes she added one or more chili petines (pequins) to the pot.

Trying to pack a lunch is hard enough as it is, but making it gluten-free is even harder. When my hubby and I take a trip together, I’ll often pack a lunch since that’s usually more dependable than hoping to find something gluten-free for me “on the road.” (That most likely means I’ll be having something like a bag of tortilla chips and a bag of peanuts from the vending machine.) Let me tell you that I’m not satisfied by that while smelling my husband’s hamburger and fries! I’ve learned that when I do fix myself a lunch, I’d better fix double, though, because I’ll end up sharing it with that same guy who’d otherwise be ordering a full [...]
The flavors of these two beans subtly complement each other, like the visual effect does. Whether they’re the whole or cut version, they’re one of my husband’s favorites.

We’ve had gluten-free fish breaded a number of different ways, but last night I cooked them with cornflake crumbs. We thought it had the best all-around flavor and texture of any I’ve cooked. You could make your own cornflake crumbs in a food processor with gluten-free cornflakes, but this time I used ready-made Southern Homestyle Corn Flake Crumbs distributed by The SoyNut Butter Company. We added some potatoes and a serving of green and wax beans for one of our favorite gluten-free meals.

We normally try to eat on the healthy side of average, which means lean meat and plenty of vegetables. Once in a while we get a taste for a hot dog, but the chicken/turkey/pork varieties don’t satisfy that taste. Lean beef hot dogs do, so I’ll share that with you… … Recently we had some Hebrew National franks, which are one of the gluten-free brands we like. For information on Hebrew National labeling about gluten, look here. For the Hebrew National franks site, you can look here. Since the franks are already cooked, you just need to simmer them in a covered pan with a small amount of liquid until heated through. That liquid can be water, or it can be [...]
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.
