Meal Plan Monday – making things allergy-friendly

This week I am sharing about making things allergy-friendly. It’s not as hard as it sounds and can be done, within reason, and your food budget. I have shared before about what we eat in a typical week although we have changed a little as I do not really eat meat anymore. This week I will share some typical meals we eat and how I plan for food allergy issues.

We shop on a Friday night but I am working from Monday this week to make it easier planning wise.

Monday – Meatballs and gnocchi. I use this gluten free gnochhi brand but you can also make your own. I use this recipe and simply use glutenfree flour.

Tuesday – Fish and chips (I opt for a veggie burger of some sort and we use a gluten free batter for the fish. It’s actually easier to make than you think.

Wednesday – pesto pasta. We use gluten free pasta and pesto that is dairy free, for all of us. Quick and easy on a dance night, even if it is zoom classes at the moment.

Thursday – we use up stuff in the fridge and freezer. Usually with jacket potatoes.

Saturday – it’s pizza night. These gluten-free pizza bases work well and I make dough for those of us that don’t need them.

Sunday – pie, using this gluten free pastry. I am afraid I haven’t mastered the art of making my own that’s edible yet. I am making a creamy vegetable pie served with mashed potatoes and veggies.

I currently shop in Asda for our weekly grocery shop, and I find them excellent for food allergy products both online and in store. I also use small businesses when I can, or try and make my own foods. Sometimes it is easier to buy something that has been perfected by someone else though.

So that’s how I go about making things allergy-friendly and how I feed my family and this is a basic week for us.

Some of my favourite websites for gluten and food allergy ideas and recipes are shared below.

  1. I didn’t know much about food allergies until my eldest started bringing her girlfriend home. She’s allergic to nuts. I now check everything. It has certainly made me think more about those with allergies.
    Great meal plan. x
