Weekly Menu 03.18.13 #realfood #glutenfree

gluten menu plan

Good Monday morning! I’ve been offline almost all weekend and it’s been GRAND. Sometimes you just need that, ya know?? We reintroduced dairy to my daughter over the weekend, and it did not go so well. She had a stomach ache last night, so we are going to go back to 100% dairy and gluten free for the time being. While this meal plan is free of both, it’s still full of delicious real food recipes so even if you have no food restrictions, you should find some mealtime inspiration here!

MONDAY: beef brisket with collard greens

TUESDAY: citrus & herb whole roasted chicken via Practical Paleo (recipe to come)

WEDNESDAY: Beef with Broccoli, hat tip to Awkward Girl Gets Fit (we love Chinese food and I often order this, but I would love to make it at home. I’ll replace the sesame oil with lard, due to my son’s sesame allergy.)

THURSDAY: zucchini pancakes with bacon via Practical Paleo

FRIDAY: I’m going away for the weekend. WOO!!!! I’ll try to leave some leftovers and a pot of chili for the fam to enjoy in my absence.

Are you following me on Pinterest? I pin tons of delicious recipes and fun fashion posts! Hope to see you there!

    I need to check out Practical Paleo. My recipes this week came from an Everyday Food insert that was part of a Martha Stewart Living magazine. I’m walking on the wild side by including a chicken coconut lime recipe. Not sure how the family will received it.

    Good luck with your daughter and dairy!

    Great menu plan! I’m sorry my contribution to the link-up this week isn’t dairy-free. Your poor daughter – I hope her tummy sorts itself out soon and you work out what’s bothering her.

      No problem! The linky is for GF, but the dairy is just an added obstacle I’m working with. :-) I hope it was a coincidence… I am making notes and we will see how it goes when we introduce it again in a few weeks!
