Gluten Free Diet Menu Plan for the Week of August 26, 2012

Here is my next gluten-free diet menu plan, complete with some of my family’s favorite meals.

I haven’t prepared a menu plan lately, and I’ve been feeling the lack of organization. To be honest, it’s been crazy! Having a plan should return a tad more peace into my kitchen – it always does.

Another benefit: Most of these gluten-free meals also are fairly simple to prepare. The baked snacks and desserts take a little more time, but if you don’t want to turn on the oven for them, you can always serve more of the fruit and yogurt snacks…or buy a few goodies from your local gluten-free bakery or health food store. The Oatmeal Bars and the Applesauce Nut Muffins are favorites for packing and snacking around here. The Chocolate Potato Cake is planned for a birthday request.

Kale Salad with Balsamic Vinaigrette

Somewhere during the day I need to have a crisp salad. Whether it’s at lunch or a between meal snack or at dinner, a salad is a major part of my gluten-free diet. The bold flavor of raw kale goes well with the sweet and tangy flavors of carrot, tomato, onion and more, for a pick-me-up to even the most ordinary day.

Easy Gluten-Free Snacks – Oatmeal Bars with Molasses

Any time of year is my favorite time for gluten-free snacks, but in the summer I like to make things that take less time in the kitchen. These little bars of oatmeal and molasses are so easy to stir together that I don’t even need the mixer. I stir them together, pop the pan in the oven, set the timer and come back later.

These bars are sweet, so you might like them with less sugar than what I’ve called for. When I follow this recipe, my husband will eat them, too. That’s great because then I don’t need to make a separate pan of treats for him.

Zucchini Bread and a Few Little Sandwiches for a Gluten-Free Snack

I baked this gluten-free zucchini bread with some of the squash that is so plentiful in local gardens right now. The moist and flavorful quick bread has a good texture and just enough sweetness to make a great gluten-free snack.

It tasted good alone. It also tasted good with apple butter, and also with cream cheese…also with strawberry jam, elderberry jelly, peanut butter and regular butter. The sandwiches were easy to make and kid-friendly!
