This is our second week on the diet and it is not that bad but I would love some new ideas. Anyone have meal plans?

We use the www.cookingtf.com menu mailer. It is totally GF/CF with shopping list and prep included....6 dinners, side dishes and even a dessert.

We pretty much cook whatever we used to cook, we just amend the ingredients. I use a couple of great cook books (I'll get the titles for you, but they're not at hand now), and just make the "bread" stuff with their recipes (we are also egg, soy, and pea and tree nut free, on top of other things).

When we cook/saute, we use pure olive oil. When we make mashed potaotes, we use smart balance light and chicken broth instead of butter and milk, and they taste just like the "real thing"...without all the extra fat, too!

Stuff like that. It's just a new way of thinking of things, but once you get used to it...you'll never remember how you did it before!

WE make burgers and meat balls without bread crumbs. Nobody misses them, we saute onions and toss them in the meat before it's formed!
