Menu Plan Monday March 30th

Manda of Asparagus Thin is our kind hostess this week, and her food of choice is rice.  Rice is such a versitile food, and probably the mainstay of most GF diets.  Most regretfully, I’m quite sensitive to rice.   Despite my repeated requests, my body is quite insistent that rice stays on my “to avoid” list.  But I have posted my favorite rice recipe from the past…and hopefully future, Spiced Forbidden Rice pudding.

This isn’t a glamorous, snazzy menu, it’s much more one of those utilitarian, how do I get by kind of weeks.  I get the joy of a colonoscopy, and thus will be on a liquid diet Thursday and Friday and no nuts OR seeds between now and then.  I can’t say I’m looking forward to any of it, but I did make a ginormous vat of turkey broth for the occasion.


Sea’s Chickpea and Spinach Curry

Tuna in lettuce cups with avocado
Roasted Red peppers

Chinese 5 spice chicken with broccoli


Coconut water and turkey broth

Coconut water and turkey broth

Baked good of the week:
I’ve been experimenting with a dairy free frozen almond mousse…and hopefully will revisit the crackers, too.

About Cheryl Harris

Life played a funny trick on me. I've studied nutrition for years, and much to my surprise, found out that I could manage many of my health issues via diet. I've been GF for years, and I've got a bunch of allergies and sensitivities. But it definitely doesn't keep me from cooking, baking and enjoying my food. Thanks for stopping by.

    That curry = yes, please!!

    Oh good grief, you poor thing! I haven’t had the ‘joy’ of the colon-exploration, but I can think of a million things I’d wish for you to be doing other than that! Here’s hoping it goes well, and quickly, and you can get back to eating nuts and seeds like a good and proper hippy!

  3. Oh what a fun week you have planned. My youngest has trouble with rice sometimes as well. She can’t have too much rice flour baked goods and brown rice doesn’t work either. That limits her choices even more.

    Ah, the joys of the colonoscopy!!! Hope all goes well.

    The 5 spice chicken has my mouth watering, do you have a recipe?

  5. VG–I think the curry is the best thing about this week!

    Shelly-thanks for the good wishes.

    Wendy–yes, rice is a hard one to do without.

    Gluten Freek–The 5 spice chicken is MUCH easier than it sounds…just chicken rubbed with 5 spice powder and left overnight, then cooked up! I love it grilled when it’s warm enough
