Figuring out what to eat for lunch on a gluten free diet can be tricky when bread is out of the question. I like to occasionally share some ideas from what I eat. Now, to be honest, lunch has always been the hardest meal for me to eat, even when I ate gluten. I don’t mind eating it. I just hate taking a break in the middle of the day to figure out what sounds good. So posts like this are as much for me as they are for you. I need reminders of what I enjoy.
This is one of my daughters favorite lunches (even though she looks less than thrilled in the picture). She asks for it often.
It’s delicious and simple. Blend together 1 can of gluten free chili (I use Hormel) and 1 brick of cream cheese (8 oz). I use an immersion blender to mix it. Also, I’ll sometimes only use half a brick of cream cheese to save money.
Heat in microwave.
Eat with GF tortilla chips. Add a vegetable and fruit on the side. When I’m feeling especially ambitious I’ll also do a fruit dip and add ranch for the veggies and we’ll have a dipping lunch.
I hope this helps you with ideas!
