Gluten-Free Diet Menu Plan for the Week of October 28, 2012

Today’s gluten-free diet menu plan starts with Cabbage Rolls.  It’s really easy to double the recipe and have plenty for lunches later in the week.

The next day features one of the three 30 minute meals in this week’s menu plan — Sauteed Chicken Breasts complemented by rice and spinach with mushrooms.

I think this is a great meal for when I’m pressed for time.  I can actually put this meal on the table in about 20 minutes if I have some cooked rice leftover in the refrigerator.

And, I like this meal even more because, if I’m cooking it for kids, I can cut the chicken breasts into finger-food sized chunks that cook even faster and the kids will love it.

Another easy meal on this week’s menu plan is the Slow Cooker Meal on Day 3.   It cooks all day on low heat while you do other things. It’s a split pea soup.

Then, the split pea soup is followed by a stir-fry, a home-made pizza from your oven, and a yummy soup (a chowder, actually) and salad finish off Day 6.

Finally, on Day 7, this week’s menu features a delicious chicken casserole.  It bakes in the oven along with one of my favorite fall desserts… baked apples.  Here’s a picture of the apple tart I’ve included to top off a great gluten free menu plan this 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, barley-free and rye-free.  Many are also casein-free, dairy-free, egg-free, lactose-free, nut-free and refined sugar-free.
