I’m running behind this week but I finally finished this week’s gluten-free diet menu plan. Since I usually cook my menu plans for my family, I can tell you what actually happened with the dishes that I’ve already prepared. Since it’s now Wednesday, here’s how Sunday and Monday turned out.
Tuesday, I departed from the plan because of circumstances. But, having a basic plan made it easy to decide what to do in spite of how things went during the day.
Sunday’s Easy Chicken Breasts in the Crockpot were a hit and it was so nice to have them ready wh…
This week I’m adding a new description in the Gluten-Free Diet Menu Plan so you can easily see which meals are the quickest to use for a busy night. Those quick meals can be done in half an hour or less, so I call them 30 Minute Meals. I have three of them marked in this menu plan.
For this week I have gluten-free recipes lined up to feed the whole family…and make your gluten-free diet menu plan work from the beginning to the end…from the Beef Pot Roast meal at the beginning all the way to the Green Chili Pulled Pork over Bean Burritos at the end of the week.
In the plan for this week of gluten-free recipes are some easy meals along with some family “old favorites” — hamburger steaks, chicken breasts in the crock pot, broiled ocean perch, chicken with cannellini beans, shepherds pie, crab cakes and pepperoni bread. I will definitely be disappointed if I don’t manage to complete every day of this plan. Something always seems to interfere somewhere or other, but we do eat better – healthier, and more economical – when I begin with a plan. Do you have a hard time staying with a menu plan? My easiest days sometimes seem to be when we have a slow cooker meal. I love coming into the house tired and hungry at dinner time, [...]
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.
This week’s gluten-free diet menu plan begins with Boneless Beef Short Ribs, then Pork Fried Rice and a Peach Pie since peaches may be in season. It contin…
Holidays can be especially stressful for those of us with conditions causing gluten intolerance or gluten sensitivity because of the difficulties associated with the needs of maintaining a gluten-free diet and environment amid the avalanche of gluten-filled barbecues, parties and cookouts.
And, I’m going to talk about one thing that you and I can do about that but first, I’d like to share what I believe is the true meaning of Memorial Day and what it means….
This week’s menu plan begins with a gluten-free meal of Tamale Pie, Salad, Salsa, Guacamole and Flan to celebrate Cinco de Mayo. It ends with Chicken with White Beans and Tomatoes. In between you’ll find Braised Beef Steak, which reappears the next day in easy Beef Sandwiches. The following day’s main dish is quick-cooking…
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.
