We have been going non-stop since our kids got out of school three weeks ago. We’ve been camping, had family in town for a week and then went on vacation. There has been a lot of GF/Paleo eating going on in that time. There has also been a lot of non-GF/Paleo eating going on as well. Here’s some of the things we’ve been eating at home and on the road that will help you if you are trying to eat GF/Paleo. These are also all great options even if you’re not trying to eat GF/Paleo.
Salad for Dinner: lettuce, red peppers, avocado, tomatoes, canned salmon, cucumbers and the juice of half a lemon and half a lime per salad (we did not add any additional salad dressing)
Mexican: This is great for company because everyone can create what they want. We had CrockPot refried beans, ground taco meat, tomatoes, lettuce, onions, flour tortillas, corn tortillas, cheese, corn taco shells, salsa, guacamole and sour cream
Polenta with Italian Sausage and Marinara (if you are trying to stay away from gluten, make sure you know what’s in your sausage. Sausages can have a lot of fillers, some of which may contain gluten.) This dish is a good fit for our house because our kids like pasta…so they eat this dish with pasta and hubby and I substitute the polenta for the pasta.
Garlic Chicken with Tarragon We had this with roasted cauliflower and some berries on the side.
Grilled Sausages (we had cheddar bacon sausages), Cole Slaw, Chips and Fruit
Salad with a hefty scoop of albacore tuna salad in the middle with avocados and a little lemon juice
One Response to Summer (Mostly) Paleo and (Mostly) GF Eating
We will have to try the lemon and lime dressing.. The lettuce with tuna salad sounds great too. We made a dinner last night that was chicken, butter,capers, green onions and 2 fresh squeezed lemons. This was a skillet dinner and very easy. So great and GF. I tried sweet potatoes cooked in the microwave and then scooped out with a dab of butter. They really did complement each other nicely. For dessert we had fresh pineapple and I decided to serve this meal to company because it all went together so nicely.
