When I was first diagnosed with Celiac Disease in 2005 I lived with my parents and sister and then went on to hop from state to state living with friends, going to college, getting married/divorced, and once again having roommates. It was difficult to keep up with a gluten free diet while living with people who didn’t eat the same way I did. Interestingly enough my college roommate and a friend I lived with in Wisconsin have both been diagnosed with Celiac Disease since we lived together.
When I decided to move in with Nick we talked a lot about my diet and the way a simple crumb could make me sick. He has been incredibly understanding and supportive and if he gets annoyed he does a good job of hiding it. We both love to cook but since I am waiting for my new job to start in June I’ve taken over the majority of housework and cooking since he works full time and I need something to keep me busy.
To make grocery shopping easier I made a menu for the week and wanted to share it with you. Most of the time I gravitate to naturally gluten free meals to avoid the hassle of replacements and baking but this week I went ahead and bought pasta, bread mix, and brownie mix.
Breakfast & Lunches:
Eggs, fried/baked potatoes, cereal, banana pancakes, granola, sliced bell peppers/carrots/sugar snap peas, yogurt and fruit.
Brownies with ice cream and hot fudge sauce.
