I need meal ideas that are kind of kid friendly but here's the catch they can't contain any wheat, peanuts, milk, soy, or egg whites. I need three meals and snack ideas for a week and my budget is only 50. I'm so not sure how to make this work. I'm tired of eating the same chicken and veggies and breakfast meats with groups every day. Please help.

Is it gluten you're avoiding with the wheat?

Snacks are easy. Fruit of all sorts (berries tossed in a honey lime dressing are good, as are grilled or broiled fruits), fresh cut up veggies with hummus for dipping, sorbet.

How about beans and rice, nachos, hard shell tacos. I'm on a Mexican kick lately LOL.

Oh also pork loin with roasted potatoes and some sort of veggie, salmon with rice and green beans, most any kind of stew.

Look at paleo recipes. They are grain, milk, soy, and peanut free. Might be able to find some good ideas going that route.
Since it is only a wheat allergy, you can throw whatever gluten free grain in with the meals to stretch your budget.

50+ egg free breakfast ideas that will hopefully help.
Also don't worry about buying grass-fed or pastured meats if it is not in your budget. I have a ton of pinterest boards that may help. If you would like to glance at what I have found, I will gladly send you a link.

Sloppy Joes

A simple and delicious Sloppy Joe recipe made from scratch with refined sugar-free ingredients.

Ingredients

  • 1 tablespoon grapeseed oil
  • 1 medium onion, chopped finely
  • 1/2 green bell pepper, ribs and seeds removed, chopped finely
  • 1 celery stalk, chopped finely
  • 2 garlic cloves, grated on a microplane
  • 1 to 1 1/3 pounds organic ground beef
  • 1 can (15 ounces) tomato sauce
  • 1/4 cup ketchup (I used my slow cooker ketchup.)
  • 1 tablespoon coconut aminos
  • kosher or sea salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste
  • 4 - 6 gluten-free hamburger buns (I used Local Oven.)

Instructions

  1. In a large skillet, heat the grapeseed oil over medium heat. Add the onion, bell pepper, and celery. Cook for 5 - 8 minutes, until soft. Add the garlic and cook for another minute until garlic is fragrant.
  2. Add the ground beef and cook, breaking up with a wooden spoon, until no longer pink.
  3. Add the tomato sauce, ketchup, and coconut aminos. Bring to a simmer and cook until the sauce has thickened.
  4. Taste as season with salt and pepper as desired.
  5. Serve on gluten-free hamburger buns.
  6. Refrigerate or freeze leftovers. Can be frozen for up to three months.

Notes

Can easily be made with ground chicken or turkey.
