No Cooker Looking For Easy Gluten Out

8 posts in this topic

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.

I definitely suggest a crock pot for people who want good food but aren't into cooking. There may be a little prep involved in the mornings but other than that, all there is to do is dish it up and enjoy.

I'm not really much for putting heat to food either, and I do crock pot somethings. I tend to take out what I want of the meal and freeze the rest in individual containers, so when I need another meal it's all ready to go just needs to be heated! I do eat a lot of salads, hummus and veggies, and fruit. Summer time almost everything goes on the grill, there's just something about throwing some food on the grill ,having a gluten-free beer and enjoying the sunshine that makes me happy! Haha must be the sunshine 😜

I hate cooking. I hate it. After my dd was diagnosed i cried for 2 weeks. I think the first week was for her and the second week was for ME! I subscribe to www.emeals.com and subscribed to the gluten free menu. She gives 7 dinners and the grocery list. No I don't like everything but they are all very easy with minimum ingredients. There are things I swore my kids wouldn't eat but they loved. I think it is around $5 a month for weekly menus. This has saved me.

I do a lot of grilling and since you can wrap anything in foil and it cooks in half the time it is fabulous. I will wrap sliced veggies (all types) in foil with some italian herbs and olive oil and in 10 minutes its done with no clean up. Chops, steak, chicken .burgers, Kielbasi etc.. it all cooks on the grill. If you cook a large batch of rice at the beginning of the week you just have to reheat and saves time later.

I don't like to cook either but found it is absolutely necessary to have food done and ready to eat.

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.

Pressure cooker! I just bought a good one. Split pea soup, start to finish, 8 minutes.

Buy a good one, no aluminum, with a dial to change the pressure. $75 for a Spanish one.

I love this thing, my gosh. I eat so well now and the food taste so good! 2 minutes

for delish, steamed broccoli.
