Gluten-Free Menu Plan for the Week of February 8, 2015

I hope that this week’s Gluten-Free Menu Plan will encourage you to plan your menus in the future. I have found that when I plan my meals not only does the week seem to work better, it also helps to bring variety to our meals as well lower food costs.

If I ask my family what they want for dinner, I’ll usually get a very small list of suggestions…

… Generally something like spaghetti, meat loaf or hamburgers. I think they’d get tired of that short list really fast! So, I try to help them out.

Planning helps me combine what they want with what I know they need AND it helps me avoid going shopping again mid-week when I discover 4 or 5 things that I forgot to buy.

If I can make do with what is in my kitchen, I’m happier, but having everything that I need is much better. A good plan helps me do that; and do it well! 😉

Here’s this week’s menu…

Gluten-Free Menu Plan for the Week of February 1, 2015

… So this Gluten-Free Menu Plan is going to be just what “the Doctor ordered”…

… Plenty of cold weather-type, “snowed-in” foods like GF Carne Guisada with Pico de Gallo and warm Tortillas or Chips… on Sunday…

… And which, by the way, should go quite well with this year’s SuperBowl on Sunday Evening.

Then on Monday, as the storm begins to wind down, Crock Pot Gluten Free Split Pea Soup with Carrots, Celery, Onion and Ham accompanied by homemade
gluten-free flat bread will be just the thing to warm us up as the front behind the storm passes by and the temperatures begin to tank.

Which will remind us that while Monday may be Groundhog Day a few miles across the border…

Power Greens Omelet for an Easy Healthy Breakfast

Breakfast is an important meal for me, but I don’t like to spend much time preparing it. That’s why when I find an easy healthy breakfast, I really like it.

This gluten-free recipe is one of the recent healthy breakfast ideas I have found that is also dairy-free, nut-free and paleo.

”Power greens” might be what you’d call a combination of several of those leafy antioxidant-, fiber- and vitamin-rich “powerhouse veggies” like kale, spinach, chard, beet greens and the like.

A combination of them makes a wonderful salad, and they add a variety of textures and flavor to a stir-fry. They also “wilt” deliciously to be folded into an omelet…so in this recipe they become part of a “power greens omelet.”

Don’t Be Fooled… Even MILD Gluten Intolerance Is Dangerous

… For that and many other reasons, people who are gluten intolerant often don’t realize how serious their condition really is…

… They think that because they only get a slight headache or have mild digestive upsets or have some other minor reaction after they eat or drink something with gluten in it that their disease isn’t all that serious.

But, almost nothing could be further from the truth!

Find out WHY!

Gluten-Free Pumpkin Muffins Made with Oatmeal – Delicious!

Gluten-free pumpkin muffins are a good way to start off the day. Pumpkin muffins are a type of gluten-free bread and go great with many, many foods… especially breakfast “fixin’s.”

And, even better, this recipe is easy to make. They can be ready in about 30 minutes and will reward you and your family with their delicate aroma and delicious pumpkin-y flavor.

Unfortunately, they won’t last very long. So, be sure to make plenty… I turned my husband loose on the muffins you see in the picture above and they all vanished in about 15 minutes… And, he’s not a magician!

He says that they are fabulous with a pat of rich, creamery butter melted into each bite.
