Gluten-Free Diet Menu Plan for the Week of July 14, 2013

Gluten-Free Diet Menu Plan for the Week - Day 3 Features Tuna Salad with Avocado on Spring Greens

Gluten-Free Diet Menu Plan for the Week – Day 3 Features Tuna Salad with Avocado on Spring Greens

Hot and humid describe life around here this week.   With that in mind I’m happy with a gluten-free hamburger cookout, a couple of slow cooker meals, a sandwich or two, a cool salad dinner and several 30 minute skillet dinners.

With the heat comes a tendency to want to move around less, so I am even more careful than usual to serve lean meats, plenty of vegetables and fruits and main dishes that often don’t need any carbs for side dishes.

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 and are suitable for a wheat-free diet.  These wheat-free recipes are also suitable for the paleo diet or may be casein-free, dairy-free, egg-free, lactose-free, nut-free or refined sugar-free.

Remember, be sure you check all your ingredients each time you buy them to make sure that nothing contains any gluten.  If the label doesn’t show clearly that something is gluten-free, check with the manufacturer.  That may seem rather obvious, but it’s easy to overlook.  The manufacturer doesn’t actually have to state that gluten is in the ingredients.  They only need to state if there is wheat or any of the other seven common allergens.  That means that barley, rye and some other less common gluten-y grains can actually be in the ingredients in amounts too small to require being listed by name.  For example, the all-inclusive, commonly seen “flavorings” covers a lot of ingredients, some of them gluten-y.
