Menu Plan Monday, September 15!


The theme for the Gluten Free Menu Swap over at Celiac Family is gluten-free Portuguese food! Since some of my growing up was done in Portugal, I am a huge fan of Portuguese food. My absolute favorites are roasted chicken (I am hoping that I eventually heal enough to be able to eat this again!) and Portuguese soup. Portuguese soup is so awesome in that you can make it out of almost anything and it always tastes good unless you forget to add some salt–almost like stone soup! I’ve even made it Paleo friendly for a friend by using cauliflower instead of potatoes. It is on the menu this week and I can’t wait to sit down and have a huge bowl of that comfort food!

Sunday's dinner!

Sunday’s dinner!

I made these snack balls last week and boy were they super yummy. I decided to try them because they didn’t have any nuts in them and neither did they have any oats in them. I was worried they would be weird, but they were a wonderful tasty snack. Apple Pie Balls–you should try them! And check back later in the week–I’ll finally be sharing my most favorite gluten-free pizza crust recipe!

Chocolate rice cereal, Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Larabars
Veggie Burger, baked potato, corn on the cob, tomatoes
Dinner: Leftovers

Rest of the week:
Breakfast Choices:
Pink Panther Smoothie
Pumpkin Waffles
Chocolate Muffins
Chocolate Raw-Nola from Choosing Raw Cookbook
Raspberry “Oat” Bars (I will use quinoa flakes)
Pumpkin Cinnamon Rolls

Sweet and Sour Shrimp Stir fry with egg rolls
Portuguese Soup
Simple Corn Soup (Leftover!)
Orange Berry Smoothie with popcorn
Freezer Burritos
Pizza, salad

    • I got some green cauliflower in my produce box yesterday so I think I will just throw it in the soup with the potatoes instead of trying to make alfredo sauce with it. Green alfredo sauce just doesn’t appeal.

  2. I will admit. When I saw Apple Pie Balls, I giggled. Sounds kind of explicit if you know what I mean…Lol! Pray for me….Lol!

    Oh! And I can’t wait for the gluten free pizza crust recipe. I gave up on pizza for a while and decided to leave it alone because it is too darn expensive to buy the already made ones and the calorie count is enormous! Ugh! What is a gluten free girl to do?!
