Healthy Gluten and Allergen Free Lunch Ideas
Don’t Let dietary restrictions keep you from packing a Delicious Nutritious Lunch. We recently found out that my oldest Son is also Gluten Intolerant and My husband is Lactose Intolerant. This has forced us to get more creative with our lunches. I’ve decided to share some of my Healthy Gluten and Allergy Free Lunch Ideas with you in hopes that you’ll be Healthy Lunch Inspired. I’d love to hear some of your Healthy Gluten and Allergy Free Lunch Ideas. Please feel free to Comment Below.
Use an Empty Apple Sauce Cup on Top of a Mason Jar to Hold Dip or Dressing.
Mason Jar Salads have been on trend for a while now but did you know that single Serve Apple Sauce Cups fit in the top of the jar, under the lid? I’ve had these beautiful mason jars sitting around just dying to be used again. It’s absolutely perfect for Hummus and Veggies or Salad in a Jar with the Dressing stored safely separated on the top. You could even used it for chips and salsa or fruit and a sweet fruit dip. I’m getting hungry just thinking about it.
My family absolutely loves popcorn so naturally packing some in their lunches makes perfect sense. These pre portioned bags from SkinnyPop Popcorn are our favorite. It tastes amazing and it’s way easier than popping it yourself. They’re only 100 calories per bag and are the perfect thing to keep in your car or bag in case of food emergencies.
Hard Boiled Eggs
I realize that some people are allergic to eggs but a lot of people do eat them, so they’ve made my list. I like to keep a carton of hard boiled eggs in the fridge. They’re perfect for packed lunches or a quick grab and go snack. They’re loaded with protein. Just sprinkle with a little Himalayan salt or use them to make Curried Deviled Eggs. I also like to use them for egg salad which we eat in a lettuce wrap or in a bowl with a little bit of lettuce.
Small Cans Of Tuna
Again there may be some people that can’t eat fish but lot’s of people do eat it. These small cans of Tuna are loaded with Protein. They taste great and are perfect for bagged lunches or a quick afternoon snacks.
We love protein shakes in our house. We buy booth Vegan and Regular Whey Powder because my husband is Lactose Intolerant. We bought a special protein powder shaker cup that comes with a little ball that helps dissolve the powder for when you’re on the go. One of my favorite protein shakes is this Vanilla Chai Protein Shake that I posted a while back. If you can’t drink regular milk just use Almond or Soy milk or water.
Who doesn’t love a good Hummus? It makes a tasty treat with Veggie Sticks or Gluten Free Crackers. It’s really easy to make and is Gluten and Dairy Free. I’ve attached my Hummus Recipe Below.
