Gluten-Free Nutmeg — Menu Plan Dec. 15

By · Print This Post Print This Post

SeasonalNutmegNutmeg is the Holiday Spice we’re exploring this week for the Gluten-Free Menu Swap Seasonal Scents. Nutmeg is often used with cinnamon and ginger in baked goodies this time of year.

But, before looking at recipes that use nutmeg for its wonderful flavor and aroma, I found an interesting article at FitDay about the 7 Health Benefits of Nutmeg. Would you believe that nutmeg can help to: Eliminate Stress and Fatigue, Improve Concentration, Relieve Pain and Indigestion, Eliminate Bad Breath, Detox Liver and Kidney, Improve Skin Condition, and Induce Sleep? No wonder it’s used so often during the holidays. 🙂

Here are some gluten-free recipes with nutmeg that I’ll be looking to add to our meals this season:

Gluten Free Menu Swap Roundup

The Girl Who Couldn’t Eat Anything: eating without Gluten, Dairy, Peanuts, Oats, or Meat
Elisabeth says she likes to sprinkle nutmeg on just about everything. She prefers buying whole nutmeg and grating it herself because it has a stronger flavor and aroma. This week, she’s looking forward to putting it on some Egg Custard, and Egg Nog. She’s also making Apple Cider Donuts and Spiced Pumpkin Bread with nutmeg this week. Dinners will include Mushroom Stroganoff, Shepherd’s Pie, Chili, Smoothie, and Pizza.

Mom’s Plans: Gluten-Free, Dairy-Free, and Corn-Free
Melissa is trying to shop smarter and reduce her grocery bills by using up the food stock in the pantry. Meals for her family this week will be Roasted Chicken, Apple Chicken Sausage and Kale Soup, Slow-Cooker Beef Stew, Spaghetti Bolognese, Crispy Chicken Fingers, Pumpkin Chili, and Stuffed Acorn Squash.

The Gluten Free Week: Gluten-Free
Lori uses nutmeg in her Cranberry Sweet Potato Bake. For dinner this week, she’ll be making Chicken Marsala, Baked Salmon, Chicken and Rice Soup, Turkey Burgers, Steak, and Shrimp Cocktail.

Thank you for including my muffins! I didn’t realize nutmeg was so good for us either. Excited to click through all these new recipes!


Hi Heather–Thanks so much for sharing my nutmeg shortbread! Now that I know that it’s so good for me, I might need to make it again! 😉

Hope you’re having a good week. Merry Christmas!


Lindsey — Happy to share the link to your muffin recipe! Thanks for stopping by.
