Gluten-Free Meal Plan Series: June 19 – 25

by lydia on June 18, 2016

I am back to share our current gluten free meal plan for my family of five in my meal plan series.  Since it’s summer now (and all the kids are home from school), we will all have the same breakfast (most of the time), lunch and dinner. I’m only including one meal for Sunday and Saturday. I just cut my monthly food budget down to $600- 800 per month – just so you get a feel for the price range this meal plan entails. However, this week we are mostly eating from the pantry before I do a full grocery shopping trip again.

We eat a whole food, nutrient-dense diet that includes pasture raised meats, eggs, dairy, homemade bone broth, organic and local produce as much as possible, organic fruits, some properly prepared grains, nuts/seeds and legumes, healthy fats/oils, natural sweeteners, fresh herbs, herbal teas and fermented foods. I also have a garden that is only just now starting to provide us with some of our produce.

I don’t have recipes or links for every single item in each meal, but I will include the ones that I do or something I found online that is similar to my own. My hope by sharing this one-week gluten-free meal plan is that I can inspire you in some small way!

Feel free to download and print out my meal plan template here, so you can fill out your own menu with some of the ideas I’m sharing.

Fermented Foods

Fermented foods are a key piece to a healing real food lifestyle. They are key in that they offer such a wide array of benefits to overall health. If done properly, fermented foods can go a long way to support recovering many digestive health concerns. Fermentation is not something most of us grew up with; it’s a lost practice that desperately needs to be revived.  [ Read More Here ]

Each week, I try to ferment at least one new thing. I like to always have at least 2 brine veggies ferments going at all times, as well as a batch of  beet kvass and water kefir.


Meal Planning Help

If you’re interested in using a meal planning service, I highly recommend Real Plans.  Real Plans is a meal planning service that you can join (monthly or annually) and have access to their amazing database of recipes. Each week, they map out a meal plan for 5 breakfasts and 6 dinners and some extras to have on hand. It’s very customizable and user-friendly.

Can you share the tandoori chicken recipe??!!

Hi Heather – I don’t have a recipe for this really, I just added some tandoori spice to the meat and then formed them into tiny meat balls and pan cooked them up.
