This Week's Menu - Pantry & Freezer Meals

It's the end of the month so we're trying to be lean with our groceries this week! We're eating from the pantry and freezer!

Breakfasts: boiled eggs, Homemade Whole Grain Teff MuffinsChocolate Hemp Shakes made w/ almond milk

Lunches: leftovers -or- sandwiches + apple slices and/or carrot sticks with hummus

Snacks: greek yogurt, apple slices w/ peanut butter, carrot sticks w/ hummus, babybell cheese, 1 oz. raw almonds or walnuts, 1 slice homemade gf toast w/ peanut butter & honey

Quick Dinners for the Week:
  • Monday: Baked Almond Halibut (Basically I am simply going to cover the fish filets with sliced almonds, drizzle with olive oil, salt & pepper and bake) will serve with green beans or broccoli (if I have any in the freezer).
  • Tuesday: Homemade chili (made using leftover homemade hotdog chili, a can of pork & beans, leftover veggies from the freezer, and leftover brown rice) 
  • Wednesday: One pot meal made with leftover beef soup/stock from the weekend to cook brown rice or quinoa, ground beef or ground turkey, and canned veggies
  • Thursday: Super quick meal tonight since we have errands: sandwiches w/ apple slices or breakfast for dinner
  • Friday: Homemade GF Pizza night -or- Homemade tuna salad for favorite tuna melts
  • Saturday: FIELD TRIP to the GF Whole Foods Bakery with our Gluten Free Support Group! Hopefully gluten free pizza out for dinner!
  • Sunday: Roast a chicken, serve with baked potatoes or sweet potatoes, spinach salad and/or green beans & almonds, my favorite baked apples

  1. Hi, Carrie! So great to see you on the GF Swap! Your menu sounds great. I am so jealous of your bakery field trip. Take lots of pics and post about it, pretty please!

    Those teff muffins sound yummy! I am going to have to check those out.

  2. looks like a great balance of quick, easy and nutritious! have a lovely week.

  3. It made me so happy when I saw you were joining us this week. For an end of the month, watch the budget menu, you guys are eating pretty darn well. I was brave and sent the email inviting people to the new support group next month. Well, I need to get a date and a place, but it is in motion.

  4. What a fun field trip! How awesome that you started a GF support group. Perhaps I will be inspired to start my own...

    Your menu sounds delicious and healthy this week. Have a great week of cooking!

  5. I'm so impressed that you plan out a week's dinners! I have often aspired to that, but never seem to be able to stick with my original choices. I wish I had more stick-to-it-iveness with meal-planning. *sigh*
