Do you struggle to make easy and delicious gluten free meals? Do you end up trying to find gluten free meals at restaurants, or eating the same gluten free foods over and over again because you just don’t know how to create simple and delicious tasting gluten free meals? Well the reality is that once you understand and know a few things, creating gluten free meals is not a hard task. Here are three easy steps you can follow to make this happen.
1. Shop ahead with a shopping list and make sure to have plenty of gluten free meals staples on hand at all times. For me this includes: olive oil, coconut oil, chia seeds, flax seeds, chicken, fish- various kinds but salmon and tuna are my favorites, quinoa, brown rice, potatoes, sweet potatoes, broccoli, peas, green beans, cabbage, brussel sprouts and other greens as well as some fruits and coconut milk. By always keeping a nice selection of gluten free staples available and ready to cook with you will never have the excuse that you don’t have anything to cook with. Obviously you can’t keep everything on hand all of the time but the idea is to always have at least some things available for cooking your gluten free meals.
2. Keep a recipe file for gluten free meals that you would like to try. I find a lot of recipes on pinterest but there are also blogs, or you can do an online search or there are lots of cookbooks with gluten free recipes available for free for reading on the Amazon Kindle. I just go to Amazon.com and look under best sellers, heath and cooking and free and I find new ones there all the time. I personally have more gluten free meals ideas that I haven’t tried yet than I could ever find the time to try. Once you start looking, you will find tons of gluten free meals ideas.
3. Just get started and experiment. If you don’t already have my 30 days of gluten free, dairy free and sugar free recipes start there. These are just some ideas but they can give you a very good start. All of them have less than 10 ingredients per meal and most have no more than 5. They also can be changed around to create a lot of variety.
