Last week was rather rough. It was the third week since the Princess got glutened and at the end of the week she got ahold of some gluten AGAIN! So of course we’re looking at another 6 to 8 weeks of not sleeping, tummy troubles, extremely picky eating, carb and sugar cravings that are out of control, and severe not listening on her part. Any tips for helping a 4-year-old understand why not to eat gluten even though it tastes good would be more than appreciated!
That being said we didn’t get to the Valentine’s cookies or the chocolate covered strawberries. It’s a new week though so I’m going to try again!
The theme for the Gluten Free Menu Swap over Gluten Free Week is Kid Friendly meals. Boy do I need these! I am hoping to get some good ideas and I am also hoping what I have planned will be kid friendly!
We did some freezer cooking again this weekend. I am stocked up on veggie burgers and spaghetti sauce two ways (with meatballs and without!) for a while.
Breakfast: Blackberry Coffee Cake. I modified it using plain keifr instead of the milk! It was super yummy!
Buckwheat granola with strawberries and bananas
Lunch: Spaghetti sauce with spaghetti squash, gluten-free noodles, regular noodles, and gluten-free meatballs depending on who you were! Fruit salad for a side/dessert
Dinner: roasted beets with balsamic vinegar, fish, chips, yellow pepper strips, and pumpkin ice cream with chocolate syrup
Breakfast for dinner: Pancakes with sausage for everyone else. I will top mine with nuts and/or almond butter.
Some soup from the freezer either veggie or chili!
Cauli-power Alfredo probably with chicken for everyone else. (Missed this because of Valentine’s Day last week!
