Gluten-Free Diet Menu Plan For the Week of June 30, 2013

Summer is living up to expectations by being hot and humid…humid on steroids here in N.E. Ohio!

Who wants to spend much time cooking in a kitchen that’s already steamy?

Not me!

I’m keeping the gluten-free diet menu plan easy by starting the week off with Easy Beef Cube Steaks in the Crockpot, a slow cooker meal that has a low-carb option.

When days are hot like this, there’s another simple meal we like — spicy Chili and Beans with Tomatoes.  This easy version goes great with a tossed salad and some fresh guacamole, so  you can have dinner ready in 30 minutes.  I’m making a little extra to have for lunch the next day.

On most days this week I’ll be eating fewer carbs, so you’ll see that several meals have that option.  Most of the time, though, I also cook rice, pasta or potatoes for those in the house who want carbs with dinner.  If I don’t, I’ll hear such pitiful whining…  🙂

For the Independence Day holiday we’ll be cooking some burgers on the grill to be accompanied by some seasonal sides and dessert.  Tomato Salad with Oil-Free Vinaigrette is simple and colorful.  We’ll also have Quinoa Salad with Cucumber, Onion, Parsley and Tomato.  Blueberry Pie with Vanilla Ice Cream will make dessert.

Have a wonderful week and a beautiful Fourth of July!

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.  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.
