Gluten-free · Menu Plan

Menu Plan

We are working back into healthier dinners this week. I have slacked for the past couple months just because we were busy, and it was a challenging Summer for us. Now that school is back in session, our regular menu planning will commence. My husband was off this week, and we did a lot of appointments and running around. I was able to plan out some delicious dinners and grocery shop…ALONE! 😉

So, here is the lineup for this week (fingers crossed we stick to it!!)…


Cauliflower Pizza “Bread”, Salad, Green Beans

Parmesan Chicken Bake (with either rice or quinoa…no pasta), Salad, veggies and ranch

Turkey Taco Quinoa Skillet, Tortilla Chips, Salad

Portabella “Steaks”, Rice, Carrots

Marinated Lentils, Smashed Crispy Potatoes, Salad

Breakfast (eggs and hashbrown skillet)




Chicken Salad pita pockets, salad


Smoothies, fruit, veggies and ranch


Pumpkin Oatmeal Muffins, fruit


English Muffins, fruit, yogurt

Baked Oatmeal



Energy balls, yogurt


Homemade Larabars (dark chocolate brownie flavor…mmmm)

Fruit (this week we have grapes, apples, bananas)

Homemade granola bars

I am also working on being more consistent with avoiding gluten (mostly in processed foods). My belly has not been happy after a weekend of bread items (although sooo yummy). 😦 I feel better all over if I avoid it, at least in store-bought items like bread, pasta, and snacks. Oh, getting older stinks! 😉
