Gluten Free Meal Plan Recipe Collage

You’ll love this weeks healthy AND delicious Gluten Free Meal Plan and Shopping List. You get 4 dinner recipes and 1 gluten free treat of the week to help you save time, money, and enjoy dinner time again!

If you’re new to my gluten free meal plan and shopping lists, I plan 4 dinners each week ( 3 vegetarian, 1 with meat (optional) for my flexitarian family. On the other night’s of the week we enjoy leftovers, a super easy meal, or go out to dinner. I also like to include a yummy treat (sometimes healthy, sometimes not) each week, because life’s too short not to eat the damn cookie! 🙂 

Day 1: Greek Quinoa Bowls

I’ve made these Greek Quinoa Bowls from Peas & Crayons before, and the whole family loved them. You can easily make the quinoa salad ahead of time-perfect for busy nights, when you need a quick, easy, healthy, AND delicious meal!

Diet: Gluten Free, Vegetarian, Low FODMAP

Serving Suggestions: This can be enjoyed as a main dish vegetarian entree, plus I like to add some fresh seasonal fruit on the side. Replace the pita bread with Udi’s Gluten Free Pizza Crust, baked and cut into wedges, to keep it 100% gluten free.

Day 2: Gluten Free Meatloaf Muffins

These Easy Gluten Free Meatloaf Muffins with Turkey or Beef, hit the spot when you want a nourishing and delicious meal, the whole family will love! I haven’t made these in awhile~but I had a meatloaf craving, so can’t wait to make them this week!

Diet: Gluten Free, Paleo Option (see recipe)

Vegetarian/Flexitarian Option: Swap meatloaf muffins with your favorite veggie burger (SiSi likes Trader Joe’s High Protein Veggie Burgers) for the non-meat eaters.

Serving Suggestions: Mashed or roasted potatoes always go well with meatloaf IMO. And, add some veggies like roasted carrots, sauted asparagus, or steamed broccoli to round out your meal.

Day 3: Chickpea Salad Sandwich

I can’t wait to make these Chickpea Salad Sandwiches from Feasting at Home. I love meals like this, because everyone can add their own toppings, to make it to taste.

Diet: Gluten Free Option, Vegetarian

Tips & Serving Suggestions: Serve on gluten free bagels or bread for those family members on a gluten free diet. These sandwiches look so filling~all you need to round out the meal, is a little fresh fruit (maybe strawberries or raspberries, mmm…) on the side!

Day 4: Avocado Enchiladas

Diet: Gluten Free, Vegetarian

Serving Suggestions: Refried beans or black beans on the side, plus fresh fruit-maybe some nice juicy oranges!
