This Week's Menu - Homemade Gluten Free Lasagna or Ravioli


"Pantry meal" weeks are common at our house. I like pantry weeks not only because it's a frugal option for us, but it can just make the weekend less stressful because I don't have to go grocery shopping. Generally, my favorite type of shopping is for groceries... but sometimes I just don't feel up to it!

So, as with most pantry weeks, our meals will be very simple. What are you making this week?

************

Breakfasts: EcoPlanet Gluten Free Oatmeal + 1 oz. almonds, hemp shakes, boiled eggs, yogurt, homemade gluten free granola + almond milk

Snacks: leftover teff muffins, babybell and/or cheesesticks, yogurt, almonds, mary’s sticks & twigs w/ hummus, apple slices w/ almond butter

Lunch - Leftovers and/or spinach & romaine salad

  1. I'd eat at your house. It all looks good to me. I just got a bag of Teff from the friendly folks at Bob's Red Mill and I'm looking for ideas.

  2. Carrie,
    mmmm....looks like a tasty week! Monday sounds the yummiest to me, for whatever reasons cannelli beans are my favorite and I can't wait until summer so I can have them with tomatoes and basil. Yum!
