The Girl Who Couldn’t Eat Anything: eating without Gluten, Dairy, Peanuts, Oats, or Meat
Elisabeth is trying a new recipe this week for Spicy Smoked Portobello Taco filling that sounds really good. However, it sounds like the rest of her family will be eating their tacos with ground beef. Other dinners at her house will be Hippie Loaf, Chef Salad, Grilled Vegetable Wraps, BBQ Chop Wrap, and Pizza.

Extraordinary Life: Gluten-Free, Paleo Menu
Lisa’s family is having Lettuce Wrap Tacos with her own special seasoning mix. Also on the menu this week is Baked Chicken, Fried Ham Steak, London Broil, Baked Garlic Shrimp, and Meatloaf. To make the meatloaf appropriate for a paleo diet, she omits the sugar and uses almond meal instead of oats.
