This is an actual poster from World War I. It used to be patriotic to eat wheat free meals! Considering the effects that the flood waters in the US and Canada are having on the wheat crops, it makes sense to be able to plan meals that do not include wheat, even if you don’t have to. But, for those that DO have to avoid wheat, especially the newly diagnosed, we try to keep it simple, interesting, and affordable.
Frozen Gluten Free Waffles, apples and almond butter. I do read your emails, and if you say that something is tasty and safe, I’ll definitely include it in the recipe database! However, the waffles aren’t chock full of nutrition, so they need healthy toppings instead of just syrup.
Tomato Spinach Soup, baked brown rice chips, hummus. The soup calls for only 5 ounces of spinach, but if you don’t want to save the rest of the spinach for a salad or sandwiches, just use it all. If the soup seems a bit tart, add a teaspoon or so of sugar. If you don’t have access to the brown rice tortillas for the chips, substitute corn tortillas, but add a little salt.
Arroz Con Pollo, roasted sweet potato rounds, Mexican fruit salad. Arroz con Pollo is one of my favorite one pot dinners. You could leave out the beer, but it adds such great flavor that it’s worth it to search out a GF beer. Anheuser-Busch Redbridge is a highly rated gluten free beer that shouldn’t be too hard to find. The link will take you to a search-by-zip page. The side dishes add color and fiber to the meal – it would be lovely to eat on the patio!
Eat well and be well!
