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!

My husband Al, who doesn’t like anything barbecue… And, don’t get me started about Al and hot spices… He surprised the “bejeebers” out of me. I’ll tell you more about Al in a moment. But first…
… First, let me explain that I was going to be out of the house all day and I needed something that I could make that was yummy as well as really easy. Pulled barbecued pork seemed like just the thing because I could dump it in my crock pot and leave it to cook slowly all day while I was away “taking care of business.”
I had some pork loin roast in the ‘fridge that was just begging to be used. So, before I left the house yesterday, I grabbed the roast, put it in the crock pot, bones and all, added enough water so it wouldn’t boil away in the next 10 or so hours and the necessary barbecue “stuff.”
Now, back to Al…

Are you wondering how to stay on a gluten-free diet and still enjoy a traditional St. Patrick’s Day feast? Here are some menu ideas that will see you through the day and take your menu plan all the way to the end of the week.
Two of these main dishes are made in the crockpot – the corned beef and the beef round roast — to make great meals without hours of watching something cook.
There are three 30 Minute Meals this week – corned beef sandwiches, broiled salmon and pizza topped with shrimp. The chicken stir fry is quick, too, but the sweet black Thai rice that is paired with it takes a little longer to cook so I usually allow almost an hour total time for that dish.

I’ve got 7 great days of wonderful dishes lined up for this week’s gluten-free diet menu plan. Here are the highlights.
Stuffed Peppers, a classic in my home, will begin the week. I’ve combined the peppers with raw veggies and biscotti. Now biscotti is really fun to make. I hope you enjoy fooling around in the kitchen like I do.
Then, on Day 2 there will be a Mediterranean-inspired chicken. That’s followed by a Low Carb Meal on Day 3 which features tilapia done in the oven; quick and yummy.
Day 4 is another old favorite in my home… a Crockpot Meal of Beef Stew. My husband absolutely loves this one so I’ll probably need to make extra.

This winter we’ve been adding more color and flavor to our meals by making our own soups, just like this Yellow Split Pea Soup. It’s so attractive with its yellow color, especially with some fresh parsley to top it.
Some recipes include a ham bone with split peas, but I think yellow split peas have enough flavor on their own that a good stock is sufficient to make a satisfying soup. In the slow cooker, with your favorite stock, this makes a filling dish, suitable for lunch or a light supper. This could easily be vegetarian or vegan by using your favorite vegetable stock.

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…

Here is this week’s gluten-free diet menu plan, full of nutritious, easy recipes to simplify the week and satisfy the hungry family!
I’ve included Tuna Salad with Avocado to go with soup and flatbread or rolls; a 30 Minute Meal of Cod Fillets with Garlic, Onions and Peppers; and a…
Gluten-free and Gluten-y family members alike will all absolutely love this beef round steak with vegetables from the crock pot recipe.
It's a classic stick-to-the-ribs family-style meal that is every bit as good as your favorite stew... And, you can thicken the delicious broth that you'll get after simmering for several hours in your slow cooker into a silky-smooth gravy that will make the meal even better.
This meal only takes 20-minutes or so to put together and then can simmer for as long as necessary... Whatever that means in your world. It's a low preparation-time recipe that you and your whole family are sure to enjoy.
... I usually use my own preference for the proportion of pasta to vegetables in this dish. Try it and decide what works best for you. I often cook more veggies than the recipe calls for. And, I'll keep them in a separate dish so that I can add more of them to my plate if the mood strikes me. Depending on how many carbs I've already had that day, I may skip the pasta entirely and just have my sauce with the veggies... I really like just the veggies in sauce sometimes. This is one of my family's favorite gluten-free ground beef recipes. The gluten-free sauce combined with the ground beef seasoned perfectly to your taste can be a marvelous addition to your meal time.
… As I looked around the Internet recently I noticed articles and comments about individuals becoming ill because they used condiments which were not gluten-free. I understand from first-hand experience how very easy it is to accidentally contaminate your food with condiments such as Worcestershire sauce, bouillon cubes and things like this. I’ve done it myself... I don't know how many times.
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.
Have you ever wondered how a Paleo Diet can help you with ANY sport requiring endurance? Have you wondered what gluten-free and paleo have in common...
