The Gluten-Free Diet Menu Plan for this week begins with a fall-apart tender sandwich dinner of Beef Short Ribs in a tangy sauce. Sliced onions are optional.
Following that is a celebration of Cinco de Mayo featuring Carne Guisada, a spicy Mexican-inspired beef stew that can have onions, tomatoes and even potatoes in it. Like most stews, the ingredients can vary some. It’s been a favorite of mine since I first had some in San Antonio years ago.
I’m so happy to see daffodils and tulip trees blooming! It’s also fun to add a few spring veggies to this week’s Gluten-Free Diet Menu Plan.
Asparagus, sugar snap peas, spring salad greens and green peas are a few sides that I like to add to the menu any time of year. But, they are even better when I can find them fresh, so I’ve added them to several of the meals below.
There’s a slow cooker meal, a sandwich supper, a paleo chicken dinner, a salad supper, a shrimp sauté, a “breakfast for supper” and a crock pot turkey breast supper this week.
This week’s Gluten Free Diet Menu Plan begins with a marvelous Easter holiday dinner of oven roasted boneless pork loin and ends with an easy lasagna with spinach.
This week the gluten-free diet menu plan begins with one of the most popular recipes on Elegantly, Gluten-Free, which is Easy Meatballs. They’re paired with baked polenta, sauce and mozzarella. This will probably be Al’s favorite meal of the whole week!
Next I’ve planned three 30 minute meals – Shrimp Gumbo, Pan-Grilled Pork Chops, Broiled Salmon Fillets – followed by a slow cooker meal of Beef Round Steak.
This week will be busier than ever for me.
Because of that I planned the Gluten-Free Diet Menu Plan to have one day of comfort food – Chicken and Dumplings with Peas and Carrots!
And, the rest of the week will be full of slow cooker meals, 30 minute meals and one easy casserole.
I’m happy to report that a consensus has been reached in that regard among recognized experts in the gluten field.
This article summarizes the information in the report produced by the expert panel in what is hopefully easy to understand American English. This will give everyone who uses ElegantlyGlutenFree.com a common reference as to what is meant when we use various terms and classifications in articles and posts.
The Consensus Report
The process to arrive at the consensus began in 2011. At that time 15 scientists, all recognized experts in various parts of the “gluten issue,” began to work together to standardize terminology as well as classification of the different diseases and processes which appeared to be associated with the group of gluten-related problems.
In a report published at the end of last year (October, 2012) by BioMedical Central, a consistent, universal terminology and classification system was developed by this panel of 15 experts to be used when dealing with gluten-related medical/scientific issues.
I’m Pat’s husband, Al. From time-to-time Pat mentions me on her blog. So, you may have heard of me… or not.
Anyway, Pat has asked me to write up the results of the “Major Frustrations” Survey which we recently conducted on the ElegantlyGlutenFree.com website as well as on Facebook. So, here it goes…
The purpose of the survey was to…
