Gluten-Free Diet Menu Plan for the Week Features Mini-Meat Loaves with Mushroom Sauce & Potatoes

Gluten-Free Diet Menu Plan for the Week of September 1, 2013

In the United States of America, the first Monday in September is Labor Day. So that makes it this weekend!

It’s a legal holiday here and, because of that, we all get a day off from work or school… normally on Monday.

That makes it a long weekend… Sadly, it’s also sort of a “goodbye” to summer :-(. But, the day is usually perfect for a cookout if it isn’t raining or too cool!

This year, I’ve planned a simple meal Monday which will include some old favorites…

Gluten-Free Chicken and Penne with Kale and Tomatoes for an Easy Chicken Dinner

Gluten-Free Diet Menu Plan for the Week of August 18, 2013

There are many different approaches to eating… Low-carb, paleo, Atkins, whole foods, real foods, raw and many, many more. And of course a Gluten-Free Diet.

One of the nice things about a many of these different approaches to eating is that they are often interchangeable with each other. I personally like to intermix Paleo and Low-Carb with my “foundational” Guten-Free approach to eating.

For instance, in this week’s Gluten-Free Diet Menu I have three paleo and several low-carb dinners planned…

Gluten-Free Diet Menu Plan for the Week of August 4, 2013, Full of Color!

Summer is a time for celebrations and special family togetherness…

… It’s warm, humid and maybe even punctuated by a quick afternoon thunder shower or two.

Special meals and picnics, sparklers and fireworks, vacations and trips to the mountains, beaches and grandma’s house are perfect for bringing out the best summertime has to offer. And, one way you can add to the celebration is by using colors to enhance your meals to make them exciting and enjoyable!

Gluten-Free Diet Menu Plan for the Week of July 28, 2013

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.

Gluten-Free Chicken and Dumplings

Gluten-Free Diet Menu Plan for the Week of July 21, 2013

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.

Gluten-Free Diet Menu Plan for the Week - Day 3 Features Tuna Salad with Avocado on Spring Greens

Gluten-Free Diet Menu Plan for the Week of July 14, 2013

Hot and humid are the most frequent descriptions of life around here this week. With that in mind I’m happy with a hamburger cookout, a couple of slow cooker meals, a sandwich or two, a cool salad dinner and several 30 minute skillet dinners.

With the heat comes a tendency to want to move around less, so I am even more careful than usual to serve lean meats, plenty of vegetables and fruits and main dishes that often don’t need any carbs for side dishes.
