Gluten Free Menu Swap Roundup
Mom’s Plans: Gluten-Free, Dairy-Free Menu
Melissa says she’s spending too much time cooking these days, so she’s pulling out the slow-cooker to make better use of her time this week. For this week’s menu, she’ll be making Roast Beef with Vegetables, Bratwurst Stew, Sloppy Joes with Nacho Chips, and Paleo Chili with Veggies. She also has Halibut and Stuffed Acorn Squash on her menu, as well as plans for filling the freezer with make-ahead meals.
The Peaceful Mom: Simple Gluten-Free Menu
Kimberlee’s menu this week is filled with yummy meals to warm you up this season. Beef and Veggie Soup, Taco Bowls, BBQ Chicken, Cheeseburger Pasta, Easy Potato Soup, Mexican Burgers, and one night of breakfast for dinner. She also has meal plans for breakfast and lunch. The Baked Oatmeal and Crunchy Chicken Salad got my attention.
The Girl Who Couldn’t Eat Anything: eating without Gluten, Dairy, Peanuts, Oats, or Meat
Elisabeth is keeping the meals simple for Christmas this year, so there’s plenty of time to enjoy the day. She’s planning quick and simple Cinnamon Buns for breakfast and her favorite Grilled Shrimp (which my family enjoyed, too) for dinner. This week, she’ll be making Pumpkin Molasses Cookie Dough Balls, and Peanut Butter and Pumpkin Puppy Treats. The remainder of her meals this week will include Pancakes, Grilled Cheese, Sloppy Joe’s (Sloppy Lentil Joe’s), Veggie Soup, Pizza, Spiced Salmon, and Smoothies with Popcorn.
