A tough job, but it needs to be done!

Meal planning has always been the bane of my existence. Well, one of them anyway. Even before going gluten-free, I struggled planning out my family’s meals. Year after year I’ve tried to get a routine, just to have it disrupted in some way.

Another allergen added, or another child comes along, and everything is up in the air again. Not that it’s a bad thing at all when it’s a child, but I can do without new food intolerances!

Holding myself accountable.

So the struggle has continued since I left college te.. well, you don’t have to know how long ago. 😉 Then a few weeks ago, I had the brilliant idea of using the blog as my accountability. The plan was to write up a month of menus, and then… follow them.

Sounds easy enough, but around the end of the second week I ran out of lunches… and dinners. While I pretty much would fine eating breakfasts or desserts for every meal, I figured it wouldn’t be the best, per se, for my family. So I enlisted the help of some of my gluten-free blogger friends.

Four weeks of gluten-free menus.

I hope you enjoy the wonderful meals contained in this month-long-ish meal plan, even if you don’t use all of them the way they’re laid out. (I probably won’t…)

If you enjoy this meal plan, and want to take it a step further and do your very own. You can learn all about planning a gluten-free menu in my handy little ebook Gluten-Free Meal Planning Made Simple.
