The Gluten-Free Weekly Menu Feb. 23
Hi everyone! Nothing too exciting going on this week. Trying to get out and enjoy the sun when it shines and stay warm when it’s cold. We’ve been walking on the Austin Boardwalk/Butler Trail quite a bit now. It feels so good to get in a 5-mile walk and feel my body getting stronger and way less sore.
My husband and I lost a bunch of weight when we started exercising consistently and eating real food as well as incorporating more veggies into our dishes. Then we plateaued and gained some of it back over the holidays. I don’t get as much exercise when it’s cold outside (plus we’ve been eating more tortilla chips than before ;)).
So I’m trying to do something a little different – eat lots of veggies and lean protein and exercise for longer periods of time (row for an hour or walk for 1.5). It seems to be working but I’m going to stay off the scale and judge by how my clothes fit. It’s a constant battle with my 5’1″ frame and terrible metabolism and love for margaritas. We decided not to go out for Mexican food as often and ended up making homemade cranberry juice skinny margaritas on Friday that were amazing (we did not finish this entire pitcher BTW).
Anyway, it’s a balance to stay healthy and enjoy life. Here is the casein-free, gluten-free weekly menu plan for February 23:
#MeatlessMonday – Rice Noodles with Kale Pesto
Wednesday – Summer Pasta Salad with Homemade Italian Dressing (in The Weekly Menu eCookbook)
Thursday – Buffalo Chicken Salad
Friday – Thai Turkey Burgers with Roasted Spiced Potatoes (in The Weekly Menu eCookbook)
Saturday – Chicken and Veggie Fajitas
Sunday – Grilled GFCF Sausage and German Potato Salad; Chocolate Zucchini Muffins
Hope you have a wonderful week! 🙂
