Our Weekly Menu {Gluten-Free} 8.21.16

Welcome to Our Weekly Menu! I haven't done one of these posts in forever. Never fear though, we've still been menu planning each week. Even if our little homemade board says, "leftovers, snacky dinner (aka: clean out the fridge) and take out" I still write something on there. I love the piece of mind it gives me to not stress over dinner at 5pm.

Only two more weeks of summer for us. I'm a little sad but also looking forward to the routine of school. We'll be out and about most of the day this Thursday, so a slow cooker meal is in order. If any night is going particularly crazy, you rest assured I'll be calling in that "once-a-week-take-out" card for my awesome hubby to pick up food on his way home from work. That's another perk to menu planning, you can always switch it around as needed.


SUNDAY: Lettuce-Wrap Burgers and Potato Chips at the lake. Whenever we're home and it's not storming, we head to our beach for dinner at the lake. It's one of my most favorite summer traditions!

MONDAY: Bruchetta Chicken with Spinach Salad and Garlic Bread

TUESDAY: Flank Steak Salad with Strawberry Watermelon Salsa

WEDNESDAY: Turkey Taco Lettuce Cups 

THURSDAY: Slow Cooker Mushroom Honey-Mustard Chicken with Steamed Broccoli

FRIDAY: take out! Yeah baby!

SATURDAY: Sushi night! Avocado-Cucumber and Chicken Teriyaki rolls

Strawberry Almond Butter Toast {Easy Peasy}

This is hardly a recipe but more of an inspiration. As I try to cut back on my sugar intake I've been experimenting with adding fresh fruit to my toast instead of sugary jam or jelly. This is seriously so yummy and sweet. Delicious with more vitamins, antioxidants, fiber, and way less sugar. Give it a try. Also super tasty with raspberries and blackberries!

Lettuce-Wrap Burgers and Baked Sweet Potato Fries {Gluten-free, Beef, Grilling}

This is a two-for-one recipe! My hubby's deliciously simple grass-fed beef burgers wrapped in crisp lettuce AND sweet and savory, baked sweet potato fries! You can absolutely add your favorite bun or roll for the burger if you prefer, but crunchy lettuce is a really tasty compliment. Sometimes I just put my burger over a giant green salad and it's wonderful. Click here for Lettuce-Wrap Burgers and here for my Baked Sweet Potato Fries recipe. Enjoy! ...click here for the recipe!

Kale Greek Salad {Gluten-free}

This is super duper simple and delicious! Don't be afraid of baby kale, it's really very similar to spinach and makes a great base for all the zippy flavors of this salad. Add some grilled chicken to bump this up to an entree. Click over to type2diabetes.com to see my recipe. Enjoy! ...click here for the recipe!

Turkey Taco Lettuce Cups {Gluten-free, Low-carb}


Tacos are a favorite in our house! This is a fun and lighter way to enjoy all the delicious taco fillings in a crisp, crunchy lettuce cup. They taste great anytime, but I especially love them on a warm summer evening. The beauty of make-your-own tacos is everyone can customize their own! Click over to type2diabetes.com to see my recipe.

Slow Cooker Beef Fajitas {Gluten-free, Crock Pot}

It's Tuesday! That means you can make tonight TACO TUESDAY! Okay, so they are fajitas technically but they're served in a soft taco tortilla so basically the same as tacos. If you're looking for a new and delicious option that's a bargain, these tasty fajitas are perfect. I buy beef stew meat in bulk, portion it out and freeze it. Stew meat is lean and can be stringy and tough if not cooked properly. Fortunately, it lends itself perfectly to slow cooker preparation and comes out tender and full of flavor.
