Whats Your 'go-To' Meal

Recommended Posts

Chicken of the Sea has tuna canned with olive oil now. Not everyone has it, but having some on hand is worth the search and it's better than their water-packed cans... Those are too dry for me.

Ah, yes, Chipotle. :) I also eat a lot of Noodles & Co. Pad Thai is the only dish that is also soy-free when ordered straight from the menu.

I make soup. I use canned beans, quiona, diced tomatoes, broccoli, vegetable broth and whatever else I can think of at the time.

That's what I'm eating right now (the Jimmy D Skillet with sausage) plus I added some extra green/yellow/red pepper/onion stir fry veggies, fresh mushrooms, bacon bits and two eggs. Yum!

I thought the sausage had gluten? I have a Cecelia's Marketplace Grocery Guide and it only lists the bacon and ham skillets as safe. (Of course my book is Casein free too) I also checked a food allergy website and it said the Jimmy Dean Sausage Skillet has gluten. I thought that was odd since so many Jimmy Dean Sausages are safe. So is it safe?

Thank you, very good to know. My local grocery just carries the sausage and sometimes the bacon so this gives me options. :) I get very confused by caramel color and maltodextrin it seems some sites tell me they may have gluten and some websites say they are safe. I don't know if it's a matter of what country the website is based in or just old outdated information. I'm learning (slowly) to pay attention to the date and country of origin on website information.

If I am starved and have almost no time I make scrambled eggs with cheese. Leftover meat like bacon or steak if I happen to have some in the fridge. Or veggies...goat cheese and spinach is good.

Another option that sounds gross but is actually good is cottage cheese mixed with tuna and steamed edamame. I eat this for lunch about once a week.

Salads with lunch meat, cheese, and dressing. If I have more time I might grill a chicken breast or a piece of steak in place of the lunchmeat. Still a fast meal.

Greek yogurt with Trader Joe's peanut flour and reduced sugar strawberry jam. I had this for breakfast this morning and for dinner last night!

Protein shakes with frozen fruit, milk, and a scoop of vanilla powder, sprinkled with cinammon.

Sometimes I cook a few pounds of ground beef at once so I can freeze a couple for later. Then I can make super fast chili or spaghetti.

I also keep frozen pizza crusts on hand for emergency pizza nights! :)

I know there's a lot of misinformation floating around. In the US caramel color and maltodextrin are safe unless otherwise noted. Wheat, for instance, must be disclosed and cannot be hidden in a product.

A bowl of cereal with a handful of trailmix thrown in. Usually Nature's Path Mesa Sunrise flakes, or Enjoy Life Crunchy Flax, or a mixture of both. Okay, so cereal isn't really a meal but its my comfort food!

Who says cereal isn't a meal??

I say it is. So there. <_<

In fact, I'd say it's a complete meal if you add some fruit. You've got grain, dairy, fruit.. protein in the milk... sounds good to me.

I used to have cereal for at least one meal and one snack each day, but stopped when I started watching sugar intake in addition to gluten and soy. Sometimes I really miss it. Cereal had always been my comfort food.

Soy free tuna can be found at Trader Joe's.

Thank you! Why have I not thought to look for tuna at Trader Joes before now?!? I've been getting the more expensive gold label stuff (I forget which brand, but both Bumblebee and Starkist have a gold can that is free of soy, but it's SO pricy). I'm putting this on my TJ shopping list now.

Tuna and carrots is one of my go-to lunches too. Sounds boring, but I like it. I cut up a bunch of carrots into little stick and either scoop out the tuna and eat it or I make it like a salad with just tuna and little carrot sticks. Sometimes with a little olive oil, sea salt and italian seasonings sprinkles on top. best of all it's low carb. When I'm not eating low carb I will put the tuna on a rice cake sometimes--less calories and more economical than gluten-free bread. fortunately, I despise mayo, so I don't miss it with my tuna. I will mix it with a little spicy mustard sometiems when I want variety though. Or another way to season tuna is to take a fresh lemon and squeeze the juice into it, then add freshly ground pepper and sea salt. Yummy.

When you say sugar do you mean carbs? If not then there's always Rice Chex and Corn Chex cereals. Nature's path also makes some good cereals--gluten free corn flakes that are sweetened with pear juice and "Whole O's" (a gluten free cheerios knock-off). I use the corn flakes to crush up and bread my chicken parm.

SOY FREE MAYO!!!!! where,what brand name or do you make your own?????

*can you tell i miss mayo :lol: *

Yep, Hellman's canola oil cholesterol free mayo. It's the only main stream brand I know of that is soy free.

And nope, I never have made mayo. I don't think homemade mayo is real complicated, but they say it only last a couple days too. Plus the possibility of salmonella is enough to keep me buying it anyway.


Proverbs 25:16 "Hast thou found honey? eat so much as is sufficient for thee, lest thou be filled therewith, and vomit it."

Job 30:27 My bowels boiled, and rested not: the days of affliction prevented me.

Thyroid cyst and nodules, Lactose / casein intolerant. Diet positive, gene test pos, symptoms confirmed by Dr-head. My current bad list is: gluten, dairy, sulfites, coffee (the devil's brew), tea, Bug's Bunnies carrots, garbanzo beans of pain, soy- no joy, terrible turnips, tomatoes, peppers, potatoes, eggplant, celery, strawberries, pistachios, and hard work. Have a good day! 🙂 Paul

I thought MSG had gluten. Someone posted on here the ingredients to the Jimmy Dean sausage and it stated that it has MSG. I have read that the glutemate part is gluten.

MSG is not a gluten concern.

My nutritionist wanted me to make my own mayo because Hellman's/Best Foods has Canola!!!! oil (GMO) and distilled vinegar (risk of gluten residue). I just said to myself, sorry, no way I'm going that far!!

It's protein powder. I use the Jay Robb brand of vanilla protein powder. It's gluten free, the whey is free of rBGH, and it's sweetened with stevia.
