Healthy Gluten Free Recipes

Breakfast * Lunch * Dinner * Snack

Today is day 5 of the Make A Change Challenge and eating a gluten free diet.

A few things I’ve noticed:

  • the foods that are considered “superfoods” are all gluten free
  • I ate more wheat products than I realize
  • I had a headache on Day 3 but I think that had more to do post-holiday detoxin
  • gluten free does not necessarily mean healthy
  • I’ve yet to find a gluten free bread with a good taste [and texture]

  1. These look great! Week 1 has been going pretty well for me. One mix up in a hunger-induced stupor, but otherwise, I’m hanging in! Meal prep this week is going to be fun. Thanks for these ideas!

  2. Yay! You are doing so well! I have actually noticed mostly the same things as you! I have not noticed any physical changes yet though? How do you feel? I am sure we will begin to notice a few things in a few days! Thanks for the recipes, these will come in very handy!

  3. Those gluten free pumpkin protein pancakes sounds great!
    I have done a detox and and have really cleaned up my diet since the new year, the biggest struggle for me now is when to fit in my runs. I have been cross training in the evenings but the dark and cold make it hard to run/workout in the morning.

  4. Awesome link up!! I have been flirting with the idea to go gluten free. I have the Wheatbellly book and now I need to sit down and actually read it. My gut (no pun intended) is telling me wheat is the root of some of the weight and size issues (I’m a size 8 working to get to a size 6) so I am excited to read your posts and to also read how you FEEL. As you know my “Make A Change Challenge” is to eat more GREENS. More salads, green juice and green smoothies! I am feeling good but know along with adding I need to be subtracting some other stuff. Thanks for sharing your gluten free updates!

  5. Yum!!! I would say my biggest struggle is a cross between making sure I’m prepped for the week and social situations. I feel pressure to eat what is there and not stand out!

  6. FINALLY, someone who understands that being gluten free does not always equate to “healthy”. I have celiac disease and am told quite often how “lucky I am” because now I’m “forced to eat healthy”. This is not the case, gluten free breads, while I LOVE my udis (you should try it! Or try Rudis but be careful Rudis has a gf and non gf bread line!) it lacks nutritional value. It is just a means to hold the content of my sandwich, as well as many other gf products often contain a million ingredients but lack nutrition, those are mainly substitute products for cereals and such. Grains that are naturally gluten free are by far my favorite! ALSO, I know everyone’s bodies are different but it takes AT LEAST two weeks to notice a difference or change and I had one doctor even tell me if could take a few months for gluten to fully flush out of ones system. Hope this helps with your thyroid issues <3

  8. Great ideas, thanks!
    I am working on small changes so I don’t feel the diet pressure. Right now I am most working on stopping the mindless eating and cutting the diet soda.

  9. I needed these! THANK YOU!

    After 2 weeks g free I’m feeling a little less puffy. But this cold weather is making me LAZY. Next week will be the real test when I do running AND diet. :(

  10. I am really loving quinoa. Doing Laura’s reset and really liking it:) In the evenings I do get hungry and sometimes it’s easier to not eat than think of something quick and healthy:/ But I try to at least grab a few nuts and some fruit to tide me over.

  11. People asked me if I was going Gluten Free to be healthy/lose weight constantly. I am doing to get rid of my headaches and quickly realized that while being GF knocks out many of my favorite unhealthy foods (fried chicken, mac and cheese, and all baked goods) it is still possible to eat way to much bad for you gluten free food. I am currently working on reigning that in.

  12. I haven’t changed anything in my diet, because I already eat really cleanly. I was raised that way, so it’s just second nature to me, thankfully! I guess I’m lucky. =D I really want to make those potato bites, btw.

  13. I have not had any gluten or type of grain for years. I have severe gut issues and my body cannot tolerate grains. So I understand the importance and severely of gluten issues.

  14. I love finding new ideas that are healthy. Gluten is everywhere. I had a client that has celiac disease, she really had to watch everything she eats. This was some years back, then the influx of gluten is everywhere and you can find products/recipes that are gluten free. My diet is pretty clean so it hasn’t changed much since the holidays, a bit cleaner and consistent :)

  15. Hey,

    I have gluten allergies as well and just wanted to share that the Silver Hills Bakery ‘s Little Big Bread is amazing and doesn’t affect me at all! They also have a couple gluten free options as well (I haven’t found that necessary, although some of their breads do bother me, the Little Big Bread doesn’t). This bread has an amazing texture and taste not to mention it is very nutritious!

    Hope this helps your bread dilemma!
