Gluten-Free Menu Plan for the Week of October 19, 2014

Here is a week’s worth of family-pleasing meals that are always gluten-free and are often low carb, too.

And, I have options to satisfy any “not-so-low-carb” people who might be hungry, too.

Voilà, Hybrid Frittata on Steroids!

This recipe came about one evening as I was looking for something I could do with eggs and the growing seasonal abundance of vegetables in my refrigerator. I put them all together and, voilà, hybrid frittata on steroids!

At first I was considering a neat, organized frittata, which is a seasoned mixture of beaten eggs with sautéed vegetables added, cooked slowly in a skillet without stirring and then turned as a whole at the end… similar to what you might do with an omelet.

But, what I had in mind was much more than that. I wanted a skillet heaped with scrambled eggs, which are cooked differently than frittatas. I wanted it vibrantly alive because of the scrumptious, savory sautéed veggies in it. And, I had absolutely the right idea… it was delicious!

Mediterranean Beef Rump Roast in the Slow Cooker

I made the most delicious, gluten-free roast braised in my slow cooker the other day. It was lean and flavorful and it sliced easily so it was easy to serve. The juices were fragrant with the Mediterranean seasoning and the savory vegetables. And, to top it all off, the sandwiches that I will make from the leftovers will be wonderful… We’ve had this before… Many times!

When I did thicken the juices to make a gluten-free gravy the way my husband likes it, we really enjoyed it. I used sweet rice flour for thickening this time. But, arrowroot powder or potato starch flour would work too if you’re cooking paleo.

A little while before serving time, I stirred the thickener into some of the juices and then stirred that back into the crockpot. It made such an easy gravy! There was plenty of flavor in the juices, so without any thickening it would still be excellent if you are on a low-carb diet.

Gluten-Free Diet Menu Plan for the Week of November 25, 2012

Thanksgiving Week this year was most certainly full of a lot of choices in the Food Department for my family. And, I hope that your week was at least as good if not better than mine was.

From Appetizers to Desserts, my holiday gluten-free diet did not lack choices. This week’s meal plan is full of delicious, gluten-free choices.

For the final week of November I’ve planned for plenty of gluten-free goodies. But, this week, the choices are more time-conscious to make the week go easier. Plus, this week’s gluten-free menu is more health-conscious than last week. Maybe it will

Add Kale, Onion and Peppers to Your Quick Healthy Meals List

I always like to have a few quick healthy meals handy like this gluten-free recipe made from kale, onion and peppers.

My husband actually likes this combination with kale, even though he never gets excited when he hears it’s on the menu. (Don’t tell him that I know he likes it J)

Having several 30 minute meals ready to go when necessary can be a lifesaver.

For more protein to go with these veggies, you can cook an egg or two in the center of the pan during the last few minutes of cooking time. These eggs are not technically poached since they aren’t in water deep enough to cover them, but they will cook nicely if you…
