This week I’ve planned some main dishes that I and my family absolutely love… But, when I looked at the side dishes I had paired with each of them, I realized that veggies are actually the big stars in this week’s menu.
Having lots of vegetables every day is one of my priorities in life; from salads for lunch, fresh veggie sticks for snacks and at least one or two vegetables included in dinner.
This week’s menu plan starts with Stuffed Peppers with a side of Corn on the Cob. Later in the week there are Roasted Carrot Sticks, Tater Tots, Calabacitas (that’s zucchini and/or yellow summer squash with corn, chiles and more), Kale Salad, Mashed Potatoes…and that’s barely more than halfway through the week.
Along with seven days full of gluten-free recipes for dinner… and even a few GF desserts… I hope you find some of your favorite veggies here, too.

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. They are suitable for a wheat-free diet. Many are whole foods and are also 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.
