Gluten-Free, Dairy-Free Menu Plan
Menu Plan by Laurie
Our two-year old is experiencing some (more) food intolerance issues, and we are taking a homeopathic approach to dealing with it (under the care of a physician). When one is a two year old boy, there is really no reasoning with him that what he has to eat is different than what the rest of us can eat. Therefore our family is now not only Gluten Free, but also Dairy Free and Cranberry Free (weird, I know) until close to the end of the year.
I choose to view this as a fun challenge, rather than so much of a bummer. It’s amazing what can be done without dairy or gluten these days! And don’t worry, my butter is patiently waiting for me in the freezer. I can’t wait to start using it again. Here’s what’s for dinner at my house this week.
Here’s what’s for dinner at my house this week:
Monday — Chicken Pot Pie with GF Crust (I don’t really have a recipe for this. I just saute a bunch of veggies & chicken, make a gravy to pour over it, throw a crust on & pop it in the oven for a while.), Home-Canned Peaches
Tuesday — Tamales (Bought from the local couple who makes and sells them door to door. Delicious!), Spanish Rice, Green Beans, Applesauce
Wednesday — Lentil Soup, Biscuits and Jam, Roasted Broccoli
Thursday — Breakfast for Dinner– Gluten-Free Pumpkin Pancakes, Sausage, Smoothies
Friday — Pasta with Chicken, Herbs and Vegetables, Pizza (trying out the Daiya vegan cheese), Spinach Salad
Saturday — Cowboy Dinner, Peas and Corn, Fresh Oranges
Sunday — Maple Barbeque Beef in the Crockpot, Green Salad, Home Canned Pears

Just had to let you know how much my family has enjoyed the Chicken Taquitos from the meal plan you listed a few weeks ago. We have had it at least once a week since your post and I made it again with turkey leftovers last night. So good!
Daiya is the best! You can get a dollar off their “cheese” here: https://www.facebook.com/daiyafoods/app_206300662838772
Daiya is a great vegan cheese! My lactose-intolerant cheese-hating partner loves it for pizza and calzones – but also homemade mac and cheese!
Those pumpkin pancakes look yummy! They sound similar to banana pancakes. Put 1 banana and 2 eggs in your blender for about 30 seconds then cook like normal pancakes. SO easy and delicious (my son loves these)! It’s a great healthy recipe for those avoiding gluten and dairy.
I am excited to read these and gain inspiration as our family is also dairy and gluten free due to our children’s food intolerances! Thank you!
