Curious about cutting out gluten but have no idea what you’d eat? I’ve got you covered. When people first consider going gluten free, or even trying to reduce the amount of gluten in their diet, they’re often left wondering “but what’s left to eat?”
Especially in America, with a seemingly endless supply of gluten-filled muffins, pastries, pasta, processed snack foods and overflowing bread baskets, it may seem like a daunting task to find foods without gluten. The truth is, getting rid of gluten doesn’t have to be a painful, restrictive process. By eating in line with the meal choices I’ve laid out below, you’ll realize how abundant and delicious your gluten free choices are. Your tastebuds will be so satisfied, you won’t remember the word gluten existed!
I compiled a week’s worth of different gluten-free options for each category: breakfast, lunch, dinner, snacks, and desserts (and as a bonus, a few awesome gluten-free bread recipes)! Mix and match, pick the ideas you like and make a week’s worth of nourishing, gluten-free, delicious food.
