Gluten-Free Menu Plan for the Week of October 26, 2014

Gluten-Free Diet Menu Plan Begins with Cabbage Rolls

Gluten-Free Diet Menu Plan Begins with Cabbage Rolls

This gluten-free menu plan includes a whole week’s worth of dinners that will satisfy you and your family.  It includes low carb dishes for me, plus “regular” side dishes for others in the family—but it’s all gluten-free.

There is even an apple tart for dessert, which is not in the least bit low carb (so I will be passing that up), but it is entirely gluten-free, and my family will enjoy every bite of it!  They need to have a dessert now and then, even if I don’t eat it.

Except for the first day with its sweet dessert, I won’t have time to cook two different meals, so I’ve kept the double-focus of low carb and “regular” to be as simple as possible – so it isn’t really like cooking two different meals.  It’s more like fixing one simple extra dish – like baked potatoes or steamed rice.

As you can see, many of these dishes are paleo, 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.   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.
