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.

Gluten-Free, Low-Carb Spinach, Cheddar & Monterey Jack Quiche

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.
