Gluten Intolerance Can, In Fact, Be Fatally Dangerous! <Click> To Keep Reading and Find Out More…
This week in the Gluten-Free Menu Plan I’m planning meals from the simplest pasta and sauce dinner to a full table, Thanksgiving feast.
I’ve tried to keep it simple and also include healthier options when I can, like low carb veggies to replace most of my serving of pasta with that meat sauce I mentioned.
I hope you can find some dinners here that suit you during this holiday week. On the day set aside (in the U.S.) to give thanks for the abundance we have, I hope you have some time to remember what you are most thankful for. Personally, I don’t want to focus on just the food that we have to eat, although that’s certainly important, but also on the family, friends and neighbors we can share it with.
I have a hot cup of coffee in hand on this chilly evening as I organize my thoughts to plan this week’s dinners. The Gluten-Free Diet Menu Plan for this week starts off with beef cube steaks in the crockpot, for a stick-to-the-ribs dinner designed to satisfy the whole family.
There are also four 30 minute meals to make evenings easier: pan-grilled haddock, boneless pork chops, chicken and penne, and a chili dinner. The other two meals are meatballs with rotini, and some baked salmon with cauliflower “tater tots.”
Almost every meal has a low-carb option, most often found by avoiding the carb-laden side dishes (the ones my husband delights in).
Sitting on the porch thinking about this week’s menu plan, I’m enjoying the blooms of the day lilies and the newly-opened rose of sharon blossoms. It’s cool enough for a sweatshirt this morning, so I’m going to use my oven a few times this week.
Feeding a family where not everyone eats gluten-free may seem a little intimidating for a cook, but there are plenty of dishes to cook that everyone can enjoy. Actually, one of the easiest tips for finding gluten-free food for yourself is one that also works for feeding a mixed group, and that is to select from whole foods.
Whole foods are an excellent beginning to make everyone happy since there’s no concern about hidden ingredients that might be bad for the gluten intolerant or gluten sensitive. Buying food that is unprocessed and naturally raised — those would be whole foods – makes it easy to tell what is gluten-free since there are no hidden ingredients.
This week’s Gluten-Free Diet Menu Plan is high-lighted by a quick-and-easy 30 minute meal featuring Roasted Chicken Breasts garnished with veggies. I’ve used some of my favorite cut vegetables in Day 5’s treat. However, you can modify the recipe to use yours!
But, no matter what you top it with… Steaming hot from the oven, it’s sure to look good and taste delicious too!
This week’s Gluten-Free Diet Menu Plan is highlighted by the fact that it’s got 2 Slow Cooker Meals and 5 quick, 30 Minute Meals. The meals are all quick or “no-brainer” easy!
I guess it reflects the fact that I’ve been out of the office for several weeks on a temporary assignment. So I’m “knockin’ ’em out” fast and furious today.
