Menu Plan for March 5, 2012
I’ve been fighting an ongoing battle against comfort foods lately. It seems like they’re trying to take over my life!
Here I am trying to cook healthy, gluten-free meals that my whole family will like, but those subversive comfort food impulses keep sneaking in to insist that I serve meals like smoked ham, cottage fries and creamed veggies with pie for dessert.
My gluten-free menu plan for the week is finally here, even if it is a day late…I like to start my week on Sunday.
Today I’m putting this week in order with a menu plan that will simplify my daily routine, help with my shopping and more effectively manage my family’s apparent tendency towards our less-healthy old favorites. Now when we have a comfort food, it will be in the plan!
No more last-minutes changes to what’s for supper. The gluten-free diet that sounds good at the beginning of the week will make it easier to stick to the plan each night.
Gluten-Free Menu Plan
Pinto Beans with Onion
Tossed Mixed Greens with Ranch Dressing
Tossed Romaine Salad with French Dressing (from Lexie’s Kitchen)
Pumpkin Bread with Honey & Maple made as cupcakes (but not frosted)
Tossed Salad with Thousand Island Dressing (from Adventures of a Gluten-Free Mom)
Spicy Paprika Roasted Carrots (from Simply Sugar & Gluten-Free)
Banana, Grape and Melon Salad
Best wishes for a healthy, gluten-free week!
