Free 2-Week Gluten-Free Meal Plan

I’m excited to be sharing a simple 2-week gluten-free meal plan today! Click here to get your copy! After sharing that I went gluten-free and then following up with my post about healthy living, I had a lot of readers ask me for favorite recipes and tips. I don’t claim to know everything but I’m glad that I took control of my diet back in February. This meal plan contains a lot of the same types of produce (zucchini, salad greens, tomatoes) but also allows you to choose a lot of your favorite veggies and protein. I eat a lot of the same meals so you’ll see some repetition which will make grocery shopping easier.

Often times I hear people complain and say that eating gluten-free is expensive. I wholeheartedly disagree. Most of my diet is made up of eggs, fruit, veggies, rolled oats and meat. The only “gluten-free products” that I tend to buy are pizza crust mix, granola, and frozen meals for lunches. As I mention in the meal plan, we spend about $125-150 per week on groceries and try to only eat out 2-3 times.

Lastly, I want to encourage those thinking of trying a gluten-free diet to just give it two weeks. Not because 2 weeks will cure all your problems but I found that it started to feel like a natural part of my life after 2 weeks. I don’t promote gluten-free living as a fad diet. After suffering from fatigue, migraines, bloating, and depression for most of my adult life…I view my gluten-free diet as medicinal. It allows me to have the energy to workout daily, balance my schedule, and really enjoy my life. As Shauna (Gluten-Free Girl) said, “Let’s help some more folks to be well.”

I hope that this meal plan will help some of you to be well.

    Allison, are you Celiac, or did you just eliminate gluten, felt better, so now you do it? I’m the later of these two, been gluten-free for 6 months (with a few minor, regretable lapses).

    Do you know if an intolerance runs in your family. Thanks for sharing, I agree wholeheartedly with what you have to say about the benefits of going gluten-free–I’ve experienced the same myself!

      We are the same! I decided to go GF without getting a blood test or a biopsy first. Now that I haven’t had gluten in 6 months (and I feel so much better), I’m not really comfortable with eating gluten just to get officially tested.

      My sister has celiac and my mom had a gluten intolerance – which is why I thought to even try it!

    it can be expensive, but it doesn’t have to be. i buy udi’s bread and pretzels…but mostly stick to rice, fruit, veggies, and meat.

    2 celiacs and a type 1 diabetic in our household and we eat very well for $100 a week!

      Yum! Love Udi’s! I agree, it definitely CAN be expensive but so can any grocery trip if you buy anything that looks good. Planning our meals out in advance really helps too.

    Great menu! I went GF last summer (I miss beer so much) and now my stomach doesn’t constantly hurt as it has all of my life. Celiac and intolerance runs in my family and I wish some of my sisters would try it out. I’m constantly trying new recipes – trying to cook GF from scratch, so it’s always great to have some new ones!

    (your links are opening in same tab in the menu, so I had to tab back and forth – if you can switch them to open in a new tab/window, it may make it easier for others so they don’t lose their place . I often forget to change that setting in my posts, so Ithought I’d let you know in case you were able to change it)

      Hi Val! Glad to hear from you and I hope your family gives it a try soon! I hope some of those recipes can be helpful :)

      As for the links, are you referring to the links in the PDF? I’m not sure how to change that since I add the links in my design software. Clicking COMMAND when clicking on a link should open a new tab if you’re on a Mac. If it still gives you trouble, maybe save the PDF to your desktop and then it will open all the links in your browser!

    I’m not gluten intolerant, but I love a good meal plan to help take that off my hands! I’m gonna try yours out with the veg substitutions. Yay! Thanks for the awesome resource! Which Amy’s frozen meals do you like? I’ve never gotten any but I should to save some $$$ during lunch.

      My daughter and I have celiac and my husband has type 1 diabetes…we’ve found that gluten free grains are generally higher in carbs than regular grains. However, I tend to try to cook with lower Glycemic Index foods to sort of meet in the middle (not to mention that lower G.I. foods are better for my daughter and myself anyway!).

      I’d highly recommend some Glycemic Index conscious cookbooks! :D

    I love that you have this shared in such a clear, easy to follow format. I’ve actually been trying to go gluten free with the goal of two weeks because I heard you really feel the difference. I was curious, so I gave it a shot. It wasn’t as hard as I thought, except after 1 week, I cheated, which I regretted. I’m now redoing again, so this is timely. Thanks so much!

    I also just found your blog for the first time. I love it! Can’t wait to keep discovering more goodies.

    I love this allison!! I blog about gluten free living. I was diagnosed with celiac’s several years ago, and also have a severe allergy to dairy and eggs so we are also vegan. There is so much to eating gluten free, and even more to actually eating a healthy diet WHILE eating gluten free. I think that’s what a lot of folks don’t understand. I love that you’ve created this reasource! I am trying to brainstorm ways I could help your readers as they have questions about gluten free living. If you would want to team up you can always feel free to contact me:). Since I’ve made the change, I’ve gained a lot of knowledge (and I work at a Naturopathic Physician’s office so that helps too) about gluten free, natural and healthy living:). Have a happy day!!

    Glad there is a 2-week program for this because it is not advised that you consume a lot of amount of food with specific contents/nutrition immediately. You have to take things slowly for your body to adjust and cope up.

    ‘Are people really searching online for my product or services’.
    Any business to conduct business on the web should have a web site created especially for creating an awareness of their products and
    ser-vices to the planet at large. Unlike TV, radio and other traditional marketing channels that
    need big budgets to be effective, SEO can be cost effective.
    A reputable SEO company won’t have any qualms about connecting potential clients with former
    ones.

    If your site is relatively sound, the most important results for you to consider are the keyword hits.
    So what are you going to put in their search box is “website optimization tips”.
    But it is extremely important that anyone looking
    to hire an SEO professional be aware of the differences. This mode
    of advertisement was faster than the earlier ones and reached more people but it had its own limitations.
