Are you wondering how to stay on a gluten-free diet and still enjoy some traditional St. Patrick’s Day goodies? Here are some menu ideas that will see you through the day and take your menu plan all the way to the end of the week.
Two of these main dishes are made in the crockpot – the corned beef and the beef round roast — to make great meals without hours of watching something cook.
There are three 30 Minute Meals this week – corned beef sandwiches, broiled salmon and pizza topped with shrimp. The chicken stir fry is quick, too, but the sweet black Thai rice that is paired with it takes a little longer to cook so I usually allow almost an hour total time for that dish.
Have a wonderful gluten-free 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. They are wheat-free recipes, as well as 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.
