This week’s menu theme is a spring gluten free meal plan. I hear from many readers their questions about adopting a gluten-free lifestyle, and what does that mean? What will they eat? I hope the recipes in this week’s gluten free meal plan help you understand that it doesn’t need to be complicated. There are simple swaps to make, and the emphasis is on adding more plants to your plate.

There are a couple of helpful gluten-free swaps I want to mention. Here’s a list of products you want to switch out if you are trying a 100% gluten free meal plan.

  • soy sauce—> use tamari, or coconut aminos
  • worcestershire sauce –> coconut aminos
  • whole wheat pasta –> use brown rice, kamut, or quinoa pasta
  • corn starch–> arrowroot starch
  • flour–> the swap depends on the recipe. I often use almond flour or coconut flour.
  • bread –>brown rice tortillas, or use vegetables as buns, like sweet potatoes or portobello mushrooms
  • shredded cheese –>bagged cheese often has cellulose/flour to prevent it from caking. Shred your own.

This is just a starter list. When I work with clients making a major overhaul, we go through the whole pantry so I can teach you how to read labels and avoid the places where gluten is hiding. I’ve created gluten free meal plans for clients with children who have been diagnosed with celiac disease, autism, and attention deficit disorder. These custom gluten free meal plans cover the full day of meals and snacks, and below are some of the recipe inspiration I used for my latest plans.

Welcome back to weekly meal plans! I’ve missed sharing some new recipes and I’ll be continuing the long standing tradition here going forward. The new part I’m playing with is organizing the meal plans into searchable themes, like this week’s Spring Paleo Meal Plan. I know a lot of people are following the paleo style of eating and I want you to be able to click over to the database of meal plans and search for what you need. You can expect to see plans that are anti-inflammatory, low-allergy, vegetarian, paleo, and Whole30. If you have some specific requests, leave a note in the comments.

Spring Paleo Meal Plan

Pick and choose recipes that can work into your own meal plan for the week ahead. The guiding principles for a Paleo meal plan is lots of protein and plants, and no dairy, gluten, and legumes. My exception will be my favorite Irish Soda bread for the St. Patrick’s Day holiday as I haven’t mastered a gluten-free version. Yet.



  • Tuna salad stuffed avocado from my past meal plan.


  • Sweet potato quiche from Real Simple Good -it needs to bake for 45 minutes, so prep ahead! This will make a great lunch too.
