There are so many activities going on besides the usual right now — graduations, weddings, vacations, sports — that it seems life is even more hectic than usual. That’s when planning ahead with a Gluten-Free Diet Menu Plan is even more helpful.
Here are seven days’ worth of menus with slow cooker meals like Green Chili Pulled Pork and Beef Round Roast, 30 minute meals like Chicken with Cannellini Beans and Tomatoes, Pasta with Sauce and Veggies, and a skillet full of Scallops Stir-Fried with Garlic, Carrots and Spinach. There are plenty of goodies, too — Oatmeal Applesauce Snack Cake, Trail Mix and Rhubarb Pie to satisfy your sweet tooth.
Bring your week under control with a little planning, and enjoy every day!
I hope you have a wonderful week!

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 wheat-free recipes are also barley-free and rye-free. They are suitable for a wheat-free diet, and many 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.
