Gluten-Free Diet Menu Plan for the Week of November 24, 2013


Gluten-Free Pasta Elbows with Sauce & Veggies, an Alternative to Gluten-free Spaghetti

Gluten-Free Pasta Elbows with Sauce & Veggies, an Alternative to Gluten-free Spaghetti

This week in the Gluten-Free Menu Plan I’m planning meals from the simplest pasta and sauce dinner to a full table, Thanksgiving feast.  I’ve tried to keep it simple and also include healthier options when I can, like low carb veggies to replace most of my serving of pasta with that meat sauce I mentioned.

I hope you can find some dinners here that suit you during this holiday week.  On the day set aside (in the U.S.) to give thanks for the abundance we have, I hope you have some time to remember what you are most thankful for.  Personally, I don’t want to focus on just the food that we have to eat, although that’s certainly important, but also on the family, friends and neighbors we can share it with.

Please let me know what you like best in this week’s menu plan by sharing, liking and tweeting about it.

Thanks for stopping by.  Have a wonderful, blessed Thanksgiving, and…

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 are wheat-free recipes, as well as barley-free and rye-free, so they are suitable for a wheat-free diet.  Many are whole foods and may also be suitable for the paleo diet and may be casein-free, dairy-free, egg-free, lactose-free, low carb, nut-free or refined sugar-free.  Be sure you check the ingredients carefully every time you buy, even if you’ve bought a product before. The manufacturers may change the ingredients without any warning or indication on the front of the label that gluten is now included.
