It’s hard to believe that summer is almost over!
For many kids around the Country, school has already resumed. Soon we will be moving into the fall season with recipes that cater to the harvest.
Today, as I am back from being away off and on for the last 12 out of 21 days, I am thinking about eating healthy while eating out. I get asked quite a bit about how to eat a healthy, grain-free diet when outside of the home.
Eating grain-free is easier than eating gluten-free, in my opinion. Many restaurants do not cater to gluten-free, but it’s easy to choose an entrée that does not contain any grains. Look over the menu for the poultry, meat, or seafood sections. Most of those entrées will be grain-free. If any of the sides contain grains, just substitute for another. Most restaurants will accommodate substitutions. Even if the food is not organic, eating fresh is always better.
Today’s grain-free weekly meal plan is full of fresh ideas for breakfast, lunch, and dinner that are simple but full of flavor. I have noted my substitutions in parenthesis.
