Gluten-Free Menu 9-23-12

Gluten Free Menu 9-23-12

As I mentioned in my metabolic diet update, I’m not being as strict as I was about grains or potatoes.  While I’m not eating them outright, I will use them if they are part of a protein based recipe.  There are a few examples in this week’s gluten-free menu.

Salisbury Steak, Tater Tots, Asparagus – I used instant potatoes in the Salisbury steak but did not eat any tater tots.

chicken cacciatore

Chicken Cacciatore, Rice, Broccoli – I did not thicken the cacciatore with corn starch, but ate it more as a soup.

fish sticks

Fish Sticks, Zucchini and Onions – My carb eater had a little leftover rice, but the rest of us were fine with fish and veggies.  I made breaded cod fish sticks for the kids and coconut flour breaded catfish for me and my husband.  I’ll be sharing that recipe some time soon.

Slow Cooker Beef & Green Beans, Rice – I used rice flour in the beef and beans recipe but did not eat any additional rice.

Zucchini and Sausage – I was short on zucchini so I added steamed cauliflower to the dish.  Some of the kids had regular macaroni and cheese.

Almond Meal Pancakes, Turkey Sausage, and Fruit – We used to frequently have breakfast for dinner, but haven’t done that much since gluten-free son and I have been avoiding grains.  We both enjoyed this low carb, grain-free version of pancakes.  I put a little coconut nectar on mine.

What’s on your menu this week?
