Gluten-Free Diet Menu Plan for the Week of September 1, 2013

Gluten-Free Diet Menu Plan for the Week Features Mini-Meat Loaves with Mushroom Sauce & Potatoes

Gluten-Free Diet Menu Plan for the Week Features Mini-Meat Loaves with Mushroom Sauce & Potatoes

In the United States of America, the first Monday in September is Labor Day.  So that makes it this weekend!

It’s a legal holiday here and, because of that, we all get a day off from work or school, normally on Monday.

That makes it a long weekend… Sadly, it’s also sort of a “goodbye” to summer :-(.  But, the day is usually perfect for a cookout if it isn’t raining or too cool!

This year, I’ve planned a simple meal Monday which will include some old favorites… Grilled Hot Dogs with GF Buns, a Sautéed Garbanzos, Zucchini and Tomato Skillet dish and for dessert what could be more appropriate than Somemores with Gluten Free Graham Crackers.

I hope you enjoy the day off as much as we will!

… Enjoy!

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 whole foods and are also suitable for a wheat-free diet or the paleo diet and may be casein-free, dairy-free, egg-free, lactose-free, low-carb, nut-free or refined sugar-free.
