It’s easy to get into a lunch rut. You pack the same things day after day, until suddenly you can’t even see at your choice more. If you’re gluten-free, it can sometimes be even harder to break out of your usual routine. To help you give your lunch some creative inspiration, we’ve rounded up our favorite gluten-free recipes to spice things up. From tacos to wraps to salads, our best recipes are not only easy to pack, but so delicious you won’t even notice they’re gluten-free!
When it comes to making gluten-free recipes, there are a few ingredients that you may want to watch out for that may seem harmless but actually contain gluten. Soy sauce, which often contains gluten, comes in a gluten-free version, but you can also use tamari in a pinch. Tortilla chips are almost always gluten-free, thanks to corn as the base. Worcestershire sauce, which you’ll need for our Reuben bowls, is almost always gluten-free, but be careful with malt vinegar (which contains gluten). Overall, it is important to always check the labels of the products you have chosen!
Now that’s settled, you can make these easy lunches! Our Chicken Chimichurri Salad, Turkey Salad and Chicken Curry Salad are classic lunches on the go. Just toss them in lettuce wraps or dip them with gluten-free crackers to make satisfying gluten-free meals. We’ve got plenty of fresh salads, soups, and rice bowls, but we’ve also included fun ways to switch up lunch, like our Crispy Chipotle Chicken Tacos, Sushi Recipes, and Hearty Stuffed Vegetables.
