It really isn't that hard unless you're trying to depend on processed packaged stuff. These are all gluten free: meat, vegetables, fruit, potatoes, rice, beans, legumes, cheese, eggs, yogurt (read the label of course...ones with fiber may not be gluten free), other grains (quinoa, for example), chocolate (an important food group ;)  ). You can make an awful lot of meals with any combination of those things.

 

Then, of the already-packaged but not specialty gluten free things, several come to my mind immediately: many Progresso soups, those ready-to-eat Hormel stews, many canned beans, canned vegetables, tuna, other canned meats (salmon, etc.), lunch meat, peanut butter, jelly...

 

Throw in a loaf of gluten free Udi's bread (most mainline grocery stores have this in their frozen section) and that should get you meals for awhile.

If you ate a lot of processed foods before this could be a great opportunity to have a better diet, wholesome healthy foods instead of processed junk.
