Gluten Free Back to School Lunch Ideas
Whether you pack lunch for the kids to take to school or for Mom or Dad to take to work, being gluten-free can make lunch packing a challenge. There are plenty of easy options, though. Here are a few ideas to consider:
Tortillas are a great alternative to bread. Udi’s gluten-free flour tortillas are my favorite for being soft and pliable. Lettuce leaves are another great wrap. Any large leaf will do.
Pack gluten-free crackers and toppings separately and combine them when it’s time to eat. Crackers go well with all the wrap fillings mentioned above. Or make classic peanut butter crackers for your kid to enjoy.
As soon as the weather turns cooler, pull out the thermos and pack soup for lunch. Make a batch of homemade soup, like this taco soup, or buy a gluten-free variety (Wolfgang Puck has several).
Fruit & Veggies
Fruit and veggies are naturally gluten free and they’re healthy. Wash and cut them so they’re ready to eat at lunch time. Include a dip for the veggies such as roasted red pepper hummus. Did you know you can buy serving size packets of hummus? Search for them on Amazon.
It can be easy to fill a lunch with carbohydrates, but you want to put in plenty of protein too. A few easy ways to include extra protein are Greek yogurt, hardboiled eggs, nuts, cheese, and gluten-free granola bars.
