Gluten-Free Sweet Treats — Menu Plan December 11

By · Comments (0) · Print This Post Print This Post

Hope you are all enjoying the holiday season and feeling well. For the Gluten-Free Menu Swap this month, we’re continuing the Happy Healthy Holiday theme. This week, we’re finding healthy sweet treats.

Since we’re busy with holiday activities, our meals this week will be simple, quick and easy. The only new recipes we might be trying this week are sweets. Since I’m trying to keep our foods a little healthier than the usual, I’ll use less sugar but add ingredients that are beneficial for good health.  Those ingredients may have more fiber, more vitamins, anti-inflammatory benefits, or even immune boosters to keep us healthy through the holidays.

I found a variety of recipes that can accommodate a variety of diets. All of the recipes are Gluten-Free (GF) and Dairy-Free (DF). In addition, some of these recipes are Paleo (P), and/or Vegan (V). Most of these recipes are also free of refined sugar, but that doesn’t mean they aren’t sweet and satisfying. Can’t wait to try some of them!

Healthy, Gluten-Free Sweet Treats for the Holidays:

 

Celiac Family’s Menu This Week:

Cilantro Rice

Parmesan Tilapia

Slow-Cooked Pulled Pork

Monday – Spaghetti and Meatballs, tossed green salad

Tuesday – Rice Bowl with Mexican Chicken and Cilantro Lime Rice

Wednesday – Indian Chicken, Green Beans

Thursday – Hamburgers, Fries, Roasted Broccoli

Friday – Tilapia Parmesan, Rice, Asparagus

Saturday – leftovers

Healthier Gluten-Free Cookies — Menu Plan December 4

By · Comments (0) · Print This Post Print This Post

Aaaaggh!! It’s December! There is no denying that we are in the midst of the holiday season, and life is getting a little busier with holiday activities. For the Gluten-Free Menu Swap this month, we’ll be building on last year’s Happy Healthy Holiday themes. This week, we’re starting with Cookies.

During the busy holidays, we sometimes let our healthy eating habits slide into whatever is easiest to grab. And that includes indulging in all the goodies that the season brings. Take a little time to plan a healthy meal and make some healthy, but satisfying, holiday treats, too. You’ll enjoy the tastes of the holiday, but you’ll still have good energy from healthy foods to enjoy all of the holiday excitement.

This week, we’re looking at making some yummy, but healthier gluten-free cookies to keep our bodies and our spirits bright. “Healthier” may mean different things to different people, so I’ve found a variety of recipes that can accommodate a variety of different diets. All of the recipes are Gluten-Free (GF) and Dairy-Free (DF). In addition, some of these recipes are Paleo (P), and/or Vegan (V). Most of these recipes are also free of refined sugar, but that doesn’t mean they aren’t sweet and satisfying. I hope you find some yummy recipes to tempt you. Give one or two of them a try, and let me know how they turned out! I can’t try all of them myself. 🙂

Gluten-Free Cookies for the Holidays:

Celiac Family’s Menu This Week:

Avocado Salsa

Rainbow Apple Salad

White Chicken Chili

 

Monday – Mock Tender Roast, Roasted Potatoes, Green Beans

Tuesday – Bacon-Wrapped Chicken, Roasted Sweet Potatoes and Brussels Sprouts

Wednesday – Fish and Chips, Peas

Thursday – Mexican Chicken Tacos, Avocado Salsa

Friday – French Bread Pizza, Rainbow Apple Salad

Saturday – Chicken Chili, Rice

Sunday – leftovers

Gluten-Free Stew — Menu Plan Nov. 13

By · Comments (0) · Print This Post Print This Post

This month’s Gluten-Free Menu Swap theme is Soups, Chilis, and Stews — perfect for the cooler fall weather.

I love a good Beef Stew with potatoes and carrots. I like to get it together in the morning and put it in a slow-cooker for a warm, hearty meal that’s ready when everyone gets home for dinner.

I went online to search for other gluten-free stews that might be just as satisfying as beef stew, but with other meats and flavors. What do you like to put in your stew? Don’t forget to check labels of anything you’re putting in your stew to confirm that it’s gluten-free.

Gluten-Free Stew Recipes:

Beef and Beer Stew with Rice @ Faithfully Gluten Free

Chicken Stew with Butternut Squash and Quinoa @ Iowa Girl Eats

Easy, Hearty Gumbo @ Celiac Family

Paleo Stew with Chorizo & Vegetable Stew @ Happy Body Formula

Quick Easy Fish Stew @ Simply Recipes

Tomato Basil Chicken Stew @ Gimme Some Oven

 

Celiac Family’s Menu This Week:

Broccoli Mushroom Quinoa

Easy Garlic Shrimp

Easy, Hearty Gumbo

Monday – Teriyaki Chicken Tenders, Quinoa with Broccoli and Mushrooms

Tuesday – African Sweet Potato Stew from Stock the Crock* cookbook

Wednesday – Tomato Basil Chicken Stew

Thursday – Garlic Shrimp over Rice Noodles, Steamed Broccoli

Friday – Beef Stew with Potatoes and Carrots

Saturday – Pizza, Spinach Salad with Cranberries

Sunday – Easy, Hearty Gumbo
