This week’s gluten-free meal plan includes easy dinner ideas to help you get a safe and healthy meal on the table. There are a few recipes that any mom will love for Mother’s Day, including Sticky Sesame Salmon, Blueberry Waffles, and Lemon Blueberry Trifle.
We’ll be celebrating Mother’s Day with three generations of mothers present. I think that being a grandmother (Nana) is the best thing in the world! We’ll be letting the men do all the cooking. Happy Mother’s Day to all my mom readers!
Sticky Sesame Salmon – This easy recipe would be perfect for Mother’s Day with its sweet and tangy sauce and crunchy sesame seeds.
Slow Cooker Whole Chicken and Vegetables – This recipe is very easy and economical. The leftover chicken can be used for a second dinner or lunches.
Easy Chicken Divan – My mom used to make chicken divan when I was a kid, so this has been a favorite of mine for years. It’s a great way to use leftover chicken. I make my own cream of chicken soup, which is surprisingly quick and easy to make.
California Pilaf – You only need a few ingredients to put together this easy but tasty stove-top meal. It’s perfect for a busy weeknight.
Italian Sausage and Quinoa – This is a flavorful one pot meal. You can use Italian sausage, or substitute with another sausage that you like.
Calzones – When I first went gluten free, I missed spinach calzones from a local Italian restaurant. Although different, these calzones helped fill that void. This recipe takes a little time, but it’s so worth it!
Green Beans Almandine – This is an easy and delicious way to dress up green beans.
Bread Sticks – These are a great addition to a meal to make it extra special.
Blueberry Waffles – Homemade waffles are much better than frozen and make a perfect weekend breakfast or fun dinner.
Almond Flour Scones – These delicious, grain-free scones are not dry like a traditional scone.
Lemon Blueberry Trifle – Here’s another recipe that would be great for Mother’s Day. My family always loves it!
Paleo Chocolate Chip Cookies – Whether you’re paleo or not, you’ll love these moist and delicious cookies!
