The Gluten Free Detroit Metro family like many others is on a fixed budget when it comes to groceries. Gluten-free goodies are known to cost a lot of money. To get around that, most items in our home are fresh and unprocessed. Therefore, a lot of baking and cooking is done in the home. The best way to keep food waste minimal and stay within a budget is to meal plan. Here is another Monday and another meal plan.
Please keep in mind that Gluten Free Detroit Metro is not represented by a doctor or dietitian. Use your own judgment when purchasing foods and consult a doctor or dietitian when adopting a gluten-free diet.
Hello Gluten Free Detroit Metro community,
This morning I would like to start with an appology for the past few weeks of spuratic posts. To say the last weeks of 2013 and the beginning of 2014 were busy would be an understatement.
Life in the GFDM house has been stressful. Mr. GFDM is weeks away from graduating nursing school. That means life has been chaotic and financially stressful.
This should be the time when menu planning would help, right? Well, like your families life is not always ideal and does not follow a plan. This blog and our life is probably just like yours, not perfect.
So for our not so perfect entrance into 2014 we only have half a menu for the week. Why? Because our budget was limited and pay day is on Wed. Hopefully there will be time to update later.
MENU ~ WEEK OF FEBRUARY 10TH
|Monday: Slow Cooker Beef Stew|
|Tuesday: Chickpea Tacos with Rice and Beans|
|Wednesday: Pasta & Meatsauce
