A Month of Lenten Menus with Links (17 GF Ideas)

The Icon of the Rich Man and Lazarus from Kykkos Monastery, Cyprus
The Biblical Story of the Rich Man and Lazarus tells the story of a rich man who fared sumptuously (which is to say, ate like most of us Americans eat!) every day while neglecting to share with the poor man, Lazarus, who was just outside his gate. During Lent, we are supposed to focus on prayer and alms giving, while reducing our self-indulgence - not any easy task for any of us.

For Orthodox Christians, during Lent we are encouraged to do our best to keep our food mostly Vegan. Here's a month of menus for this Lenten Season.

I prepared this month of menus with my 10 Minute Monthly Menu Planning System.

Scroll down for the entire month's calendar, or enjoy scrolling by a few pictures first : )

Note: Seveteen of these menus are naturally Gluten-free - the Gluten-free ones are fairly obvious - dishes served over rice or made from beans, for example. Nearly all of them CAN be made gluten-free if you make simple substitutions - a Gluten-Free Corn Tortilla for a Flour Tortilla, or a Gluten-Free pasta for traditional - and, don't forget to use all Gluten-Free ingredients- like Soy Sauce, for example.
