Summer is living up to expectations by being hot and humid…humid on steroids here in N.E. Ohio!
Who wants to spend much time cooking in a kitchen that’s already steamy?
I’m keeping the gluten-free menu plan easy by starting the week off with Easy Beef Cube Steaks in the Crockpot, a slow cooker meal that has a low-carb option.
It’s finally June and summer is just around the corner…
… So I think that it’s time to talk about cookouts, complete with buns and all the trimmings.
In fact, I’ve planned two cookouts in the gluten-free diet menu plan this week. So, we’ll have gluten-free hot dogs one evening and gluten-free hamburgers another evening.
Valentines Day week can seem a little crazy with special treats, Candy Kisses and Red-Ribboned Boxes of really tempting Holiday Chocolates. But your gluten-free diet must stay intact in spite of those marvelous goodies.
To help you with that, here is my gluten-free menu plan for the week. And, best of all, there are plenty of healthy meals for everyone ;-).
I start off with Roasted Chicken Breasts for the first day. While that’s roasting, you can make…
It’s not every week that I start off with hors d’oeuvres. But I did this week. Al and I just love the taste of the hummus and this particular brand of crackers. We are getting nothing for the mention but we really do like them.
And, it’s a great warm up for the Easy Meat Balls, Red Skin ‘Taters, Salad and Almond Bar dessert that complete the eatin’s fer the day!
The week continues with Braised Pork, Roasted Beets and Sweet Potatoe Wedges… Al (he sure is getting mentioned a lot this week) thought that they were gross when I roasted the beets myself in the oven. But, their sweet meaty taste and texture were worth it.
The Chicken Pot Pie is a traditional recipe but it’s buddy…
For this week of celebrating the new year, I started off with some Broiled Salmon Fillets, fully intending for this gluten-free diet menu plan to include healthier meals as much as possible.
On New Year’s Eve we’re planning some gluten-free recipes that are favorites, but they could possibly tempt one to overindulge. This is a meal that could suit just you and your family…or you plus a whole crowd of friends…Bean Salad with Dijon Dressing and Romaine, Bacon-Cheese Potato Skins, Easy Meatballs Subs, deviled eggs, Cannellini Hummus and Oatmeal Raisin Walnut Bars.
These recipes are ideal for a gluten-free diet menu plan. They’re dishes that I make and eat and that my family likes to eat, too, even though they’re don’t have to be gluten-free like I do. Three of these dinners are 30 minute meals to keep things short and sweet, and there’s a slow cooker meal for one night.
Since the holiday season is here, I’ve gone overboard with baked goodies every day this week — except one of them is not baked, although it is definitely a goodie. That’s the Almond Bark with Dried Cherries.
With roast chicken, cube steaks, fish fillets and more…from taco salad to green beans, parsnips and kale…there are plenty of veggies and flavorful sauces, soups, sandwiches and more, to make this gluten-free diet menu plan satisfy you and the whole family.
