I am new to the gluten Allergy, I was diagnosed in April late March. Life is much easier and so much happier for me, that is when I dont get a bit of gluten in something I did not research. I really hate to cook in the kitchen, I want to be done in 30 minutes with my meal; and ideas for something good do not come to me at all. I love my meat and vegitables and fruit. I like quick and easy but have quickly learned that is not so easy for me to handle later down the road. Any good Ideas for quick easy gluten lunch ideas and dinner? I am in great need of. I live in a small town that gets the latest memos about 1 yr later so Gluten here is slowly getting known.
If you don't want to cook much, I'd suggest a salad routine.
Once a week, cook up 4-5 chicken breasts, 3-4 chicken or pork sausages, 1/2 pound shrimp. Get some hard boiled eggs or make them. Get some canned tuna. Buy lettuce, spinach, cucumbers, in season fruit (peaches, grapes, berries in the spring/summer and apples, bananas and oranges in fall/winter) carrots, tomatoes. Cut up the veggies and put in tupperware or ziplock containers. Buy shredded cheese or cut up/crumble blue cheese, feta cheese etc., and put in containers.
For lunch and dinner, combine variations depending on mood and add guacamole, salsa, dressings, nuts to top the salad. Don't combine ahead of time because it will get soggy.
If you want hot food, you could try Hormel chili, some Progesso soups and Ore Ida french fries.
Or you could get a slow cooker and use recipies from this gluten-free website: http://crockpot365.blogspot.com/ The author makes it easy. She use "normal" ingredients and you just toss things in the crockpot without too much preparation. Cook 6-10 hours, eat. Yummy.

So I fill the cookie sheet 3 times on the weekends.
Once with burgers.
Second with chicken breasts.
Third with Nestletollhousecookies made with gluten free flour.
Then I make a pot of Basmati rice.
There's my son's food for a week.
These are stored in 4 gallon sized ziplocks in the fridge and one on the counter (the cookies!)
That way my son can eat whenever he is hungry....and it is easy to take lunch on the go too!
Fresh fruit adn veggie is all we have to do to make a meal.
It works if you don't love cooking.
