Valentines Day week can seem a little crazy with Special Treats, Candy Kisses and Red-Ribboned Boxes of really tempting Holiday Chocolates. But your gluten-free diet must stay intact in spite of those marvelous goodies.
To help you with that, here is my gluten-free menu plan for the week. And, best of all, there are plenty of healthy meals for everyone ;-)!
I start off with Roasted Chicken Breasts for the first day. While that’s roasting, you can make the pastry crust to use for the Day 2’s dessert.
And, while that’s all in the oven, you can also put together the Shepherds’ Pie with Cheese casserole for Day 2. Plus, it would also be a good time to bake the Acorn Squash for Day 3 which will make the Broiled Salmon meal that you’ll be serving then even quicker. Trust me, it’s not as hard as it sounds!
On Day 4, there is an easy Lentil Soup which can simmer while you make the Flatbread and prepare the Salad.
For Valentines Day you will be making an oven meal of my family’s favorite Meatloaf with Mushroom Sauce. The dinner includes Baked Potatoes, Garlic Butter Cauliflower and Chocolate Pudding Cake from Amy at Simply Sugar and Gluten-Free.
The next day, Day 6, will feature a simple 30 minute meal of Chicken Stir-Fry with Celery, Onion and Broccoli. Finally, the week will be complete with a slow cooker meal of Beef Cube Steaks in the Crock Pot.
These recipes are frugal and family-friendly. I hope you and your family will enjoy them as much as mine will!

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. They are wheat-free, barley-free and rye-free. Many are also paleo, casein-free, dairy-free, egg-free, lactose-free, nut-free and refined sugar-free.
