I’m starting off this week’s meal plan with an old favorite, Chicken and Dumplings, with a “dessert chaser” of Chocolate Cream Pie that the whole family will like.
Day 2 features a Roast Boneless Pork Loin whose leftovers are used to make the Day 3 Dinner Sandwich… I know, I know, the picture above and the recipe are for a pastrami sandwich but I was in time trouble and running way behind so I used what I had. Please substitute! The recipe is the same but the meat is different.
Just check the plan for the rest of the week. The has all the basic nutritional “stuff”… Stuff which has lots of lean protein and healthful veggies. In fact, Day 2 is actually Paleo!
Please let me know what you like best in this week’s menu plan by sharing, liking and tweeting about it.
Thanks for stopping by, and…

This gluten-free menu plan is designed for those with gluten intolerance, gluten sensitivity, or celiac (coeliac) disease, but I’ve found that people who have no food allergies like these gluten-free recipes, too. These are wheat-free recipes, as well as barley-free and rye-free, so they are suitable for a wheat-free diet. Many are whole foods and may also be suitable for the paleo diet and may be casein-free, dairy-free, egg-free, lactose-free, low carb, nut-free or refined sugar-free. Be sure you check the ingredients carefully every time you buy, even if you’ve bought a product before. The manufacturers may change the ingredients without any warning or indication on the front of the label that gluten is now included.
