Menu Plan January 2 – Eat More Produce

By · Print This Post Print This Post

Happy New Year! The first Gluten-Free Menu Swap of the year is being hosted by Wendy at Celiacs in the House. The theme is Eat More Produce.

That sounds like a great item to start my list of New Year Resolutions. And I’ve taken a few from my December Sanity Challenge to add to my list.

  • Eat More Produce – at least 5 servings a day (I will use my new Blender to make smoothies for snacks, and add veggies to sauces.)
  • Exercise at least 30 minutes, 3x a week. (Walking, Yoga, Dancing, etc.)
  • Get at least 7 hours of sleep every night.
  • Schedule at least one hour a week to just relax and have fun. (Hire a sitter, if necessary.)
  • Get the kids to help more with household chores. (Use Saturday mornings to catch up on weekly chores.)
  • Review and adjust my goals monthly.

Gluten Free Menu Swap Roundup

  • Thanks to Wendy for hosting this week’s GF Menu Swap at Celiacs in the House with Eat More Produce as the theme.
  • I’m going to continue the Eat More Produce theme, by choosing Broccoli as the theme for next week’s roundup. It will be here at Celiac Family.
  • The Gluten-Free Menu Swap Page has the current schedule of themes and hosts. There are still dates open for January and February. If you’d like to host a future week, please send me an email (celiacfamily[AT]gmail[DOT]com) with your preferred date and theme.

Stopping by from menu plan monday…

Yum. Thanks for sharing your menu! Your recipes look delicious. And I was wondering: what is in the rainbow apple salad? That sounds great!


[…] at Celiac Family, Heather has pulled pork, gumbo, fish sticks, chili and chicken nuggets done gluten free and served […]


We love roasted Brussels sprouts and had them for dinner yesterday. I also roasted cauliflower and tomatoes last week. Looks like a kid-friendly menu this week with plenty of veggies.


Thanks for asking Gaby – For quick and easy Rainbow Apple Salad, I purchase a bag of Rainbow Salad at the grocery store (julienned vegetables of broccoli, carrots, cabbage and cauliflower), then I add a couple large apples chopped into bite-size pieces, a bag of dried cranberries, and toss with poppyseed dressing. You can add sunflower seeds, toasted pine nuts, or chopped walnuts for a little protein, too. I love to eat the leftovers for lunch.


Hi, Heather! Your goals sound so sensible – I love that part of the goals is to check in with yourself and see how it is going. So smart! :)

Your menu is so delicious! I gotta put roasted cauliflower and brussles on my menu next week. The rainbow salad sounds brilliant and so quick to put together. Yum! See you next week!


Thanks, Angela. Sensible and simple goals! If I’d gotten too crazy, I don’t know if I could keep up with it. :)


ooh, love gumbo. I should figure out when to add that in! Enjoy a lovely week.
