Welcome to the gluten-free lifestyle..

Rachelle did a good job of listing alot ot things you can eat. Take it slow when starting out & add more to your diet as you go. Some people have reactions from many things after not partaking of them for a long period of time..... Remember not to cheat intentionaly.... Start with adding lots of fruits & veggies that are seasoned with spices & such you already know are safe... Plain meats again seasoning with what you know is safe already. When you go slowly it becomes less over-whelming . It does all fall in place.

There are excellent recipes in the recipe section to try & a wide variety of things from small bakers that are oh sooooo goood..........

To the above, I would add--

-- Tinkyada Rice Pasta (all shapes- elbows, spirals, spaghetti, lasagne, etc.)

-- Trix, Cocoa Pebbles, Fruity Pebbles... Also 365 Brand (Whole Foods) Cocoa Comets

-- Heinz Tomato Soup

-- All Classico sauces are gluten-free, and many Ragu and Hunt's varieties-- check companies' websites

-- We do a lot of homemade chili, soup, stew, etc

-- Whole Foods' frozen section has bread and pre-made pizza crusts by Kinnikinick-- a very good gluten-free brand.

-- Tacos and nachos... Old El Paso and Ortega seasonings are gluten-free

If you don't like gluten-free bread yet, try lettuce wraps. A lot of corn tortillas are gluten-free, too.

An average day is tough to answer. I also have other intolerances and allergies like nightshades, GMO corn, sulfites, sodium nitrites, cucumbers and sunflower oil. Someone without allergies to potatoes and nitrities has a lot more options than I do.

Best I can do is give you the most often eaten foods at each meal. I also sometimes have breakfast for dinner and vice versa.


gluten-free homemade muffin

gluten-free waffel

Scrambled eggs or omlet and sausage or natural bacon

gluten-free breakfast bar


Green salad with meat left over from dinner the night before

Thai Kitchen rice noddle packet with meat added

Frozen homemade portions of spanish rice or enchiladas

Natural hot dogs with green salad

Rice with meat

Sushi made for dinner the night before

Green salad with tuna or chicken salad on it


Salmon Sushi

Baked Chicken

Green Salad

gluten-free pizza

Chow mein made with Thai rice noddles

Fried rice

Spanish rice


Mexican caserole



gluten-free soup


Ice cream, sometimes homemade

gluten-free homemade cookies


Fresh fruit

Hi there!

I don't think this has been listed, but I also like gluten-free french toast...covers up the taste of the bread too!

I eat cereal for breakfast. Keep some fruit/veggies around (and chocolate) ;) to snack on.

Lunch I usually eat a pizza or tortilla wrap of some kind, etc.

Dinner, I eat whatever we make gluten-free. Spaghetti, chili, salad, or other cassarole dish that I make.

Good luck to you. It can be rough in the beginning, but you'll master it with time! :)
