Recently I figured out that I was having an intolerance to gluten, dairy and soy. Or any one of the three- I eliminated them all at the same time and when I reintroduced them my symptoms got worse.
When I first started the elimination diet it wasn't too difficult- but I did eat a lot of the same things- mostly corn tortillas topped with re fried beans, lettuce, salsa and avocados. But when I realized I was going to have to be on this diet at least semi-permanently I decided I better start menu planning again!
Here are some things to keep in mind about the following menu:
-There are a lot of gluten free convenience products you can buy out there- my goal with this menu is to cook from scratch as much as possible.
-This menu is just for me and my husband so I can rely on leftovers on 2-3 nights a week.
-We like to eat out on Friday nights so I don't ever plan a meal for that night.
-The recipes below that have links and sources are from other blogs. The recipes that have links without sources are from my blog.
-The recipes that don't have a hot link I use commonly but haven't posted to the blog- most of them are basic things that you know how to make or are very easy to find.
