We are making a few changes to my site. I will have an updated design and will have some new features here on my allergy section. We still have a few things to do, so if you notice some things not quite right, we will be working on the new design and update over the next few days and will get it all worked out soon.
Last week marked three years since I went gluten free and one of the best things I have done over the last three years, when it comes to cooking, is menu planning.
I menu planned long before I was gluten free, but after going gluten free I realized even more how much I needed it. Eating gluten free makes eating out and eating prepared or boxed foods very challenging.
We did not eat out a lot, or eat a lot of boxed foods, before going gluten free, but we did occasionally, like when I was having one of those crazy busy days or we were sick, etc. Once you are gluten free though, you really start to appreciate the convenience of being able to do that, even if it is only once in awhile.
I know we eat a lot healthier now, but I think we can all admit pizza delivery or dinner from a boxed mix every once in awhile, really does save the day.
So, how do you solve this with gluten free eating? You have a plan. I keep a few things in the freezer and I menu plan. If I have a plan it is much easier to cook on days where I do not have time or do not feel up to it.
Now, my plan does not always go as planned, but most of the time it does and it makes that dinner time rush so much easier.
Here is the gluten free plan for this week. And as always read labels and be sure to use gluten free sausage, chips, pasta, tortillas, etc.
