About The Weekly Menu Cookbook:
The Weekly Menu Cookbook is a collection of gluten-free, casein-free recipes from a variety of cultures using mostly fresh vegetables, lean proteins, healthy grains and lots of spices! It’s all about real food made with minimal ingredients to avoid a pile-on of processed food. The dinners are delicious, quick and easy to make.
The author, Deana, has a PhD in Biochemistry and a law degree. As a first year patent attorney, she became bizarrely ill from an unpredictable combination of events. Propelled into an interesting journey with food and healing, she turned her lab training and technical writing skills toward research and recipe development. Initial frustration with gluten eventually developed into a passion and love of cooking.
Because she had to cook almost every meal at home, Deana started writing a weekly dinner menu to save time and money. In order to reduce food waste, most recipes are scaled for 2-3 people unless it’s a soup that freezes well or can be repurposed. She published a series of eCookbooks, The Weekly Menu I-III, in order to share the menus. This cookbook is a collection of favorite recipes from all three volumes organized by appetizers, soups, salads, main courses, side dishes and baked goodies.
