I spend the weekends on the computer and with my head in cookbooks trying to find foods that will fit our gluten and corn free, vegan diet AND that my family will like. It is no easy task each week. Because I know a number of you doing the same thing, I’d love to have a place for us to share. Many hands make light the work.
Please post your menu in the comments section. I will still be doing this with Nutritious Eats . Because I am a big fan. If I have people liking this and it proving to be helpful, I will keep it up. Otherwise, I will just keep doing it on Nutritious Eat’s FB page.
1) Be honest. You may have weeks where you say you have no clue
2) Don’t try to impress
3) Share recipes, if you have a link to them
4) Enjoy healthy eating!
Here is our menu for the week:
Sunday: Veggie soup (my mom went to a farmer’s market and brought home turnips, collards, carrots, and fennel….it screamed soup to me so I am just gonna whip something up tomorrow)
Monday: Gretchen is making pad Thai (we cook for each other every other week…it rocks)
Tuesday: Valentine’s Dinner! Asparagus leek risotto (http://glutenfreegoddess.blogspot.com/2009/04/spring-risotto-with-asparagus-and-leek.html), a pear and walnut salad, and black bean brownies made with gf oat flour (http://www.nomeatathlete.com/black-bean-brownies/)
