Gluten Free on the Go!

Ok, so we all lead busy lives and find ourselves eating on the run, this was one of the biggest difficulties I found when I had to stop eating gluten and dairy. The option to just buy a snack or sandwich was gone.

I’m going to do a series of posts this week to share ideas on what gluten and dairy free packed lunches and snacks I take with me on the go!

Packed Lunch

So here we go, day one:

  • Chilli chicken salad
  • Fruit and nut snack box

Chilli Chicken Salad:

  • Chicken breast
  • 1/2 teaspoon paprika
  • 1/4 teaspoon chilli powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon oregano
  • Handful mixed salad
  • Cherry tomatoes
  • Cucumber
  • Dairy free mayonnaise or soya natural yoghurt

Make a seasoning mix with the paprika, chilli and oregano and rub on the chicken breast, roast in the oven for 20 minutes at 180 oC. Allow to cool and pack in a box with salad, vegetables and dairy free dip.

Chilli Chicken

Fruit and Nut Box

  • 1 large apple
  • 1 tablespoon peanut butter
  • drizzle of lemon juice
  • handful of sultanas
  • handful of honey roast peanuts

Slice both ends of the apple and cut the rest of the apple into four rings. Cut the centre out of each of the four rings and drizzle the lemon juice on the apple (this stops it going brown). Spread with peanut butter and sandwich together, put in a box with the sultanas and peanuts.

Enjoy!
