This week in northeastern Ohio, we are definitely seeing leaves turning gold, orange, scarlet and yellow, as the days become cooler and noticeably shorter. And, I have been finding more fall produce, like colorful winter squashes and fragrant apples in the stores and at roadside vegetable stands.
To me, that sounds like time to prepare more casseroles and pies, soup and stew, roast chicken and vegetables, applesauce cake, and more.
This week’s plan is a menu of great “Welcome to Fall” recipes.
This week I’ve planned some main dishes that I and my family absolutely love… But, when I looked at the side dishes I had paired with each of them, I realized that veggies are actually the big stars in this week’s menu.
Having lots of vegetables every day is one of my priorities in life; from salads for lunch, fresh veggie sticks for snacks and at least one or two vegetables included in dinner.
This week’s menu plan starts with Stuffed Peppers…
This week I started off my gluten-free diet menu plan with a family favorite… gluten-free cabbage rolls. Most people that I have served them to thought they were great. I hope you do too!
Today’s gluten-free diet menu plan is about “old favorites.” So, whatever gluten-free recipes you’re looking for right now, I hope you’ll find some old favorites of yours in this plan…
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…
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…
