I grew up on PBJ sandwiches for lunch, with the occasional lunch meat sandwich thrown in for variety. As an adult, especially one who is gluten sensitive, I am more interested in sandwich-free lunches these days. I see this meal as an opportunity to fit in some nutrient-rich vegetables, too, since it’s hard to get enough at dinner and snack time. Naturally, then, a variety of salads are my favorite lunches. Close behind, though, are lunches built around last night’s dinner – easy to make and a good way to clean out the fridge.
With no gluten in sight, try these easy lunch salads or spruced up leftovers.
1. Spinach Salad
2. ABC Salad
3. BLT Salad
4. Caprese Salad
5. Leftover Rice and Veggie Bowl
6. Leftover Potato Bowl
7. Leftover Chicken Bowl
Hoping you enjoy your lunch, with plenty of water and fresh air.
What does a dietitian, nutritionist, and health professional do when she discovers she has to avoid gluten? I mean, avoid it to prevent painful symptoms, not to follow a trend!
