Menu Plan: November 16, 2008

My menu is pretty boring this week. Nothing new and exciting. Some of the things are things I was supposed to make last week…OOPS! Also, we are meeting an old friend out tomorrow night at Pei Wei, so that will make 2 nights that we are eating out this week. We have been busy with [...]

Review: Allergaroo Spaghetti

An excerpt from The Gluten-Free Mall: “Allergaroo is the first to offer all natural, ready-made dishes free of the 8 most common food allergens(wheat, milk, soy, peanuts, tree nuts, eggs, fish and shellfish). Allergaro believes that your kids will love these meals that are shelf-stable and come in a microwaveable pouch. Just heat & eat! [...]

Review: Barkat Pizza Crust

Another treat that was in our care package was Barkat Pizza Crusts. These crusts are shelf stable and ready to add toppings too. Very convenient! The other night when I was running around like a chicken with my head cut off, I threw some marinara sauce & cheese on one of these crusts and tossed [...]

Honey Baked Lentils

About a month or so ago, I bought a package of green lentils from Whole Foods. I didn’t buy them for any specific reason other than I wanted to give them a try in something other than a canned soup. I hadn’t really narrowed down a recipe until this week, when I was reminded of [...]

Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Bars ~ Gluten-Free

As I was reading some blogs over the past couple of weeks as I recovered, I came across a recipe for Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Bars/Squares. I am a sucker for pumpkin and add chocolate to that, look out! My sister, Kelly, likes to poke fun at me and says I need a pumpkin intervention. Now, [...]

Product Review: Boomi Bars & Lara Bars

I tried another wonderful gluten-free product from my care package on Sunday. I needed a portable snack to eat after I went to the gym and was watching Jon’s hockey game. I brought a Apricot Cashew Boomi Bar. What a nice treat! I am a huge fan of Lara Bars, so I figured that I [...]

Top Ten Healthiest Foods on the Planet

I get a daily email update from Mind, Body & Spirit Fitness and one of the links in the email the other day was the Top Ten Healthiest Foods on the Planet. I was pleasantly surprised to see that all of these foods were gluten-free!!! YAY!! Not only that, but these were all foods that [...]

Easy Enchilada Bake ~ Gluten-Free

This recipe is one that was passed onto me from my sister. I think my sister got it from her sister-in-law. I made a few changes, due to foods that I can’t eat and that my family won’t eat. This is a fan favorite in our house. It is easy to put together and reheats [...]

Menu Plan Monday ~ November 10, 2008

I feel like the fog has been lifted. Maybe that has something to do with the fact that I finally ditched the painkillers that I was on last week. I have to say that when my dr first told me that I would be out of work for 5 days and still not feeling well [...]
