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: Easy Greek Panzanella Salad
This Easy Greek Panzanella Salad is a delicious way to clean out the fridge and eat more veggies, plus it’s a personal favorite of mine.
Diet: Gluten Free, Vegetarian, Low FODMAP
Serving Suggestions: This can be enjoyed as a main dish vegetarian entree and I like to add some fresh seasonal fruit on the side. If you have meat eaters, feel free to serve on the side with roast chicken or pan seared salmon. Or, for additional plant protein, add garbanzo beans or lentils.
Day 2: Vegetarian Lentil Tortilla Soup
This Vegetarian Lentil Tortilla Soup from Peas & Crayons is healthy vegetarian comfort food! Make it in an Instant Pot pressure cooker, slow cooker, or on the stove-lots of options!
Diet: Vegetarian, Gluten Free
Serving Suggestions: This is a complete meal in a bowl. Serve with seasonal fresh fruit on the side as desired.
Day 3: Spring Pasta with Asparagus, Lemon, & Dill
I may be getting ahead of myself, season wise, with this yummy Spring pasta & veggie recipe from Feasting at Home, but if you can find the ingredients, it’s a delicious way to freshen up your dinner menu!
Diet: Gluten Free, Vegetarian
Tips & Serving Suggestions: I swapped the orzo for gluten free lentil or chickpea pasta. Also, I increased the amount of pasta because my family of 4 always complains I skimp on the pasta 🙂 This also makes a complete meal. Feel free to serve with fresh seasonal fruit on the side.
Day 4: Jalapeno & Cheddar Turkey Burgers
Burger night is a favorite at our house, especially because I can easily swap in a veggie burger for my vegetarian SiSi (sometimes we all eat veggie burgers, Big Tex reluctantly). These Jalapeno Cheddar Turkey Burgers from Hungry Hobby are totally calling out my name this week!
Diet: Gluten Free
Serving Suggestions: If you make withe the bun, serve with a side salad. Or, if you skip the bum and go with a lettuce wrap, serve with sweet potato fries on the side.
Gluten Free Treat of The Week: Raspberry Chocolate Chip Edible Cookie Dough
!I’ve been drooling over this Raspberry Chocolate Chip Edible Cookie Dough (Slice & Eat) from Cotter Crunch, ever since I pinned it last week. It’s a perfect healthy sweet treat for Valentine’s Day!
