This week will be busier than ever for me. Because of that I planned the Gluten-Free Diet Menu Plan to have one day of comfort food – Chicken and Dumplings with Peas and Carrots! And, the rest of the week will be full of slow cooker meals, 30 minute meals and one easy casserole.
For a busy schedule I think a healthy diet is more important than ever. That’s why I try to maintain a balance of protein-rich food, lots of fiber and plenty of nutritious vegetables….plus for active people there should be fuel that includes plenty of complex carbs.
Much of the time I prepare carb-rich dishes separately so that I can leave the carbs for others who can use them better…like Al. He thrives on them. Al and a low carb diet will never meet!
Do you like meals that are low carb, or do you look for more of the potatoes, pasta and rice like Al does?
I hope you’ll find meals in this week’s menu plan that will suit you!

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 suitable for the paleo diet or may be casein-free, dairy-free, egg-free, lactose-free, nut-free or refined sugar-free.
