Valentine’s Weekend was no friend to me when it comes to the old diet. I ate pizza and cheeseburgers and many, many chocolates. But, I can’t blame all of the cheating on Valentine’s Day. The big problem for me with my diet is not being prepared with good food on hand to eat. This week, I’m back on track with a 7 Day Gluten Free Menu Plan and I’m armed with a Shopping List.
I have made and eaten all of the recipes included and I give them the seal of my approval. They taste good, they aren’t super difficult to make. There are no crazy ingredients on this list, other than some All Purpose Gluten Flour.
Here’s what made the cut for the Meal Plan:
Rice cake with Peanut Butter
Mozzarella Cheese Sticks
***My favorite lunch is usually leftovers from dinner, but I have a couple of back ups in case I’m not in the mood for leftovers, or if there are no leftovers. Which happens in this house. A lot.
Protein Box – Make sure you only use Gluten Free ingredients
Salmon Cakes with Steamed Broccoli – Note that you have to substitute in Gluten Free flour on this one.
Honey Mustard Chicken with Sauted Spinach – To saute spinach, just heat some olive oil in a saute pan, throw in some minced garlic and then add the fresh baby spinach. Cook until the spinach wilts.
For Your Sweet Tooth
And here is the shopping list:
** Special reminder** If you are strictly gluten free, read your labels. Gluten can sneak into unassuming things like Taco Seasoning, mustard, etc.
I’m pretty sure I got every last ingredient you would need to make those dishes. If you want to try this at home, check your pantry and fridge before you go to the store because you probably have a bunch of the items on the list. I’m so looking forward to eating well this week.
