Gluten-Free Chicken with Avocado, Tomato & Colby-Jack

Gluten-Free Diet Menu Plan for the Week of March 16, 2014

This week’s Gluten-Free Diet Menu Plan starts off with a South of the Border chicken entrée that is good enough for guests, with a dessert of flan and a snack to start the week off of Oatmeal Raisin Walnut Bars.

For the next day, which will be St. Patrick’s Day, there is a traditional corned beef dinner which, even though I’m not Irish, I cook at every opportunity.

I’ll try to save enough of it to make the Corned Beef Hash Skillet a couple of days later.

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.
