Gluten Free Avocado, Black Bean and Bacon Omelet

This eye-appealing omelet is topped with bacon and filled with an avocado and black bean combination that’s full of different textures and flavors. It’s easy enough to cook for breakfast, but it would be ideal also for a lunch or even dinner. Most of the time when I cook an omelet for my family, they ask for cheese in it, but no one missed it in this one.

Not only is this nutrient- and protein-packed dish gluten-free, it’s also dairy-free.

The avocado and black bean filling is more like a salad around which the omelet is wrapped. It isn’t the kind of filling that cooks in the omelet. Neither is the bacon cooked in the omelet. I added it as a topper. However, if you want, you can add optional ingredients such as cheese or diced ham while cooking the eggs, although I didn’t add either of these this time.

Gluten-Free Diet Menu Plan for the Week of February 16, 2014

Our dinners this week reflect the cold weather that we are still having here in the Snow Belt. I’ll be SO happy when things warm up! But, since that hasn’t happened yet, I’ll put our oven to use almost every day for this Gluten-Free Menu Plan.

There’s a slow cooker full of corned beef dinner that simmers all day long to start the week, and we’ll try to save some corned beef for sandwiches a few days later.

After that there are five meals that use the oven at least in part, from baked fish fillets, a chicken casserole, some flatbread to make corned beef sandwiches to go with curry soup, a meatloaf and then a pizza dinner.

The final dinner is a chicken stir-fry, but I will use the oven that day, too, to make some cookies.

Gluten-Free Chicken and Pepper Bake w/Avocado, Beans & Lime

I enjoy the flavors of chicken mixed with the peppers, onions and avocado. I like them even better in a gluten-free meal like this that is simple and easy to prepare.

The avocado and lime combine to provide a superb touch.

The plump creamy avocado adds its uniquely rich texture and full-bodied taste to the boisterous lime juice, fresh-squeezed over the chicken and pepper entree…

Curry Vegetable Red Lentil Soup

A bowl of this spicy, healthy gluten-free soup made a delicious lunch! As soon as I tasted it, I wanted to post it for you. Let me tell you how I discovered this wonderful treat…

… A few weeks ago my daughter-in-law sent some to me for lunch. But my son, who delivered it, couldn’t remember all of the ingredients, only that it was gluten-free. I enjoyed it and I wanted to learn how to make it.

Of course, I could tell that it had curry seasoning in it and I could taste the smoothness of the coconut milk. The cabbage, cauliflower, carrots and onion were obvious (yum!). But, there was a unique texture and flavor in it that I just couldn’t quite place.

When I found out later that the base was sprouted red lentils, I realized that they added a creamy texture and flavor to the soup that went far beyond what the coconut milk provided.

The soup is healthy in so many ways. It’s naturally gluten-free and can be made mostly from whole foods, except for the curry powder, turmeric and coconut milk – and they’re not far from whole foods.

Quick Start Your New Gluten-Free Life

How you start your life living gluten-free depends on exactly why you’re doing that.

If your physician has diagnosed you with a disease that requires you to live gluten-free, make sure that your physician knows and agrees with what I am telling you to do here. There is absolutely no way that I can cover all reasons your physician may tell you to begin living gluten-free, or take into account your personal medical situation in this article.

In the event you have simply decided that you would like to live your life gluten-free, for whatever reason, I strongly recommend that if you suspect you have a disease which causes you to be gluten intolerant or gluten sensitive, you see a physician immediately for a proper evaluation and related diagnosis. There are two reasons for this recommendation…
