Officially Gluten Free - Menu Plan Monday

So now we are officially doing the gluten-free thing for a couple of months, in addition to eating low-carb. The search for good high-protein snacks is on. This week's shopping trip is going to include a search for a good beef jerky that contains no soy (because we are also cutting that out) and definitely no MSG or other "hidden" sources of MSG.  I have a list of 5 brands I am going to look for, and later on I may post a review of the ones I was able to find.

Breakfast: kefir, gluten free waffles (also fairly low-carb)
Lunch: Meatballs and Sausage in tomato sauce (leftover from our Father's Day Dinner, but w/o the pasta)
Dinner: Bacon, Eggs, and Grits (Yay, Breakfast for dinner!). We got the bacon at the Athens Farmers Market, from Greendale Farm, and the stone ground organic yellow grits from Mills Farm.

Breakfast: Scrambled Eggs, cooked in delicious organic butter
Lunch: Chicken Salad in Celery Sticks (Chicken Salad made with delicious mayo using eggs from our own chickens!)
Dinner: @ Jeff's Mom's house

Breakfast: Scrambled Eggs and Bacon
Lunch: Chicken Salad in Celery Sticks
Dinner: Grass Fed Burgers (bunless) with Beef Gravy, Salad

Breakfast: Kefir, GF Waffles
Lunch: Leftover burgers / Salad
Dinner: Family Birthday Party

On the Road...

Breakfast: Bacon and Eggs
Lunch: Tuna/Egg Salad in Celery Sticks
Dinner: Chicken (in the crock pot with carrots, potatoes, and onions)

Breakfast: Kefir / GF Waffles
Lunch: Tuna/Egg Salad in Celery Sticks
Dinner: Grass fed "Country Style" Ribs, Mashed Sweet Potatoes, Broccoli cooked in Organic Butter

And of course we plan to fill in the gaps and stave off hunger with plenty of high protein snacks, including hard boiled eggs, roasted nuts (almonds, pecans, and pistachios), and raw-milk cheese (which we also got from Greendale Farm).

This post is a part of Menu Plan Monday.

  1. I try to eat healthy too and at times gluten free but it is really hard to stay motivated. Keep up the great work. It is easy for me however, to eat only grass fed beef. It tastes so good and I order it online from La Cense Beef and they deliver it to me. It’s so convenient. If you ever need a place to get your grass fed beef you should check out their website. I personally have always been completely satisfied.
