The Weekly Menu Sept. 26 #glutenfree #menuplanning


Hello everyone!  Happy Fall! ??? I hope you had a great week.  It’s time for the weekly menu + recipes again!  This week we are trying a couple new things because the cravings just wouldn’t go away.  I don’t know why, but I’ve been craving egg rolls and dumplings.  Maybe it was the sweet chili sauce that made me miss egg rolls. Or maybe it was a commercial on game day. Or something I saw on twitter.

So we started to look around and Feel Good Foods actually makes gluten-free and dairy-free egg rolls and dumplings.  So we ordered some.  They are filled with veggies and we aren’t frying them in anything bad so I think they are borderline “clean” but regardless I am pretty excited!  And then there is the Whataburger inspired fried chicken salad with ranch dressing (vegenaise, of course).

Ya, I’m definitely blaming it on the game day commercials…

So here is the gluten-free, dairy-free, and “healthified” comfort food weekly menu and recipes:

The Weekly Menu

Meatless Monday – Gluten/Dairy Free Egg Rolls & Dumplings, Veggies, Sweet Chili Sauce and Cantonese Style Dumpling Sauce (using GF liquid aminos instead of soy)

Tuesday – Sausage & Cabbage with Mashies (using adells gluten/casein free andouille sausage)

Wednesday –  Buffalo Meatballs & Green Beans (using certified GF oats instead of breadcrumbs)

Thursday – Asian Chicken Salad

Friday – Beef Stew

Saturday – Whataburger-Style Salad with Fried Chicken Tenders & Vegenaise Ranch Dressing

Sunday – Tacos 

Have a great week everyone!

Hi! I’m Deana. This food blog is all about cooking wholesome real food and developing gluten free recipes for some of our favorite comfort foods. I also create weekly menus to save time and money while reducing stress and food waste. I had to start eating gluten-free in 2010 and dairy/casein-free (except for the occasional Parmesan or goat cheese) in 2014. I’m kind of a science nerd, too. In the ’90s, I earned an undergrad degree in biochemistry from The University of Texas at Austin. Hook ’em! Then followed up with a PhD in biochemistry and a law degree from the University of Houston. I recently earned a certificate in genomics/sequence analysis from Johns Hopkins University, where I also took a very cool food microbiology course.
