Weekly Menu Dec 4 #glutenfree #menuplanning

What’s for Dinner This Week? Okay, so this week we are bringing out some of our “healthified” comfort food favorites.  Nothing too crazy.  I really loved the Potsticker Meatball Asian Soup from the blog  i breathe, i’m hungry so we are going to make that again with ground turkey.  It takes a little work but it was so good! The Chicken Schnitzel is adapted from Thomas Keller’s recipe from Food & Wine.  We use gluten...

Weekly Menu Nov 27 #glutenfree #menuplanning

Time for the weekly menu! It’s almost December!  How did it go by so fast? New favorite goat cheese alert!  Brett found a sliced goat’s milk Dutch cheese from Trader Joe’s that is wonderful.  It melts well and has a very mild flavor.  It has been a game changer for us.  We are going to use it this week to make cheesy garlic bread sticks to go with my first attempt at a homemade French...

The Weekly Menu Aug. 14-20 #glutenfree #menuplanning

I’m pretty excited Hatch chile season is in full swing.  We are going to make a stew adapted from Life Made Simple (recipe link below on the menu).  It was really delicious when I followed the original recipe, but this time we are going to use roasted tomatillos, chiles and jalapeños instead of using a salsa verde (which usually contains xanthan gum and isn’t organic).  It freezes well so I’m going to make a lot...

The Weekly Menu June 12-18 #glutenfree #menuplanning

Hello summer!  One of the things I love about summer are all the fruits in season.  What do you have planned for all the goodness upon us?  We are definitely making a peach cobbler and mango salsa.  Our jalapeño plant in the backyard is full of jalapeños so I’m trying to use some of those up this week, too. And I might harvest my two little bundles of zinfandel grapes to make a grape jelly...

The Weekly Menu Feb. 27 #glutenfree #menuplanning

Hi everyone!  Well it’s another day in the life of someone with ridiculous digestion issues and another weekly menu to help get me through it!  These last few weeks we really pinpointed one of the bad actors in our diet – xanthan gum!  I’m pretty much patient zero when it comes to things you probably shouldn’t eat… Brett also has issues with xanthan gum but not as severe as mine.  It makes my stomach so...

The Weekly Menu Aug. 22 #glutenfree #menuplanning

Hi everyone! Doesn’t August always feel like the longest month ever? I’m in the middle of finals right now so I’m going to keep it short and sweet.  I get a break next week and I’m looking forward to trying out a bunch of new recipes and a few I didn’t get to this week.  Plus we need a little Salt Lick BBQ – it’s been more than two months and I need my fix....

The Weekly Menu May 16 #glutenfree #menuplanning

Hi everyone! It’s time for another weekly menu! Hope you had a great week. Last week was super positive for me having earned an ‘A’ in both my Intro to Bioinformatics & Coding classes at JHU. Yay! Part of the challenge has been eating really clean to keep my gut bacteria as happy as possible, exercising to keep stress down and surrounding myself with positivity and love. It’s a good feeling to be on the...

The Weekly Menu March 14 #menuplanning #glutenfree #realfood

Hello friends, it’s time to plan out the weekly menu again! I’m really looking forward to next week because I’m on Spring Break!!! Ha! Sounds so weird to say at 43. And I won’t be heading to Cancun or NOLA like in my college days, but it will be nice to have a break from studying. And hopefully we can get out to the Lake for a few hikes on the Trail despite SXSW traffic!...

Asian Fried Rice #glutenfree #caseinfree #meatlessmonday

Hello Meatless Monday! So Asian Fried Rice? It’s been done before. Why blog it again? I’m sharing this recipe because fried rice is a challenge for me and it actually turned out really well!  And trust me that I’ve tried to make ‘Chinese Fried Rice’ with old cooked rice and cold rice – all the ways they’ve said to make fried rice – but it just never works for me. I get mush, especially with Basmati rice...

The Gluten Free Weekly Menu Dec. 28 #menuplanning

I can’t believe this is the last casein free, gluten free weekly menu of the year! It has gone by so fast! I’ve had a lot of fun coming up with the weekly menus and tracking our journey, trying new recipes, meats (bison) and veggies (kohlrabi) while learning and aspiring to make better food choices. And I’ve met a lot of cool people #foodies on social media and love sharing our creations and discoveries! ? ? At...
