Okay, moving on.. Let’s chat meal time favorites!
I have a set of standards that need to be met before I label recipes as my go-to gluten free meals. As delicious as they may be, not every recipe I make is worthy of a must make. So what are the requirements?
Requirements for Go-To Gluten Free Meals
Go-to gluten free meals MUST be easy to make. As in a “toss it all together into one-pan casserole”! They must be healthy (for the most part). And they contain simple real food based ingredients!
This is why I love shopping at our local Whole Foods (or online). I can count on them to have my gluten-free products without the “junk.” Plus who doesn’t love all their pretty produce? Swoon! Once a week my husband and I make a trip into town and stock up on our Whole Foods Gluten-free favorites. A lot of these products you can’t find at a local grocer, which is why this trip into town is soooo worth it!
Now, let’s dig into these meals so you can get to planning. Mmm k?

Lighten up a classic, home cooked, gluten free comfort food dish by using spiralized sweet potatoes! This simple and wholesome, grain free casserole recipe is ready to eat in 45 minutes. Protein rich and veggie packed. To make dairy free, try Kite cheese cream cheese and cheeses. I find these at Whole Foods.
Another one pan wonder are skillet meals. They go from the stove top straight to the table. Prepare to dive into delicious, and don’t fight over the last piece, please.
This easy one pan meal is packed with veggies, nourishing, Paleo, low carb, gluten free, and ready to eat in 45 minutes. You and your family will love the tangy balsamic marinade!
Whole Foods finds – One of my favorite pre-made marinades/dressings is Primal kitchen Balsamic Dressing, which of course you can substitute in for the homemade version here.
The ingredients for go-to gluten free meals must be easily accessible. Hello LEFTOVERS. I love you.
Everything But the Kitchen Sink Soup (for Instant Pot OR Stove Top)
This healthy, gluten free soup recipe uses holiday leftovers. OK, you can go buy them fresh from the store if you want to. Anyway, there are instructions for cooking in an electric pressure cooker (ie, Instant Pot) or on a stove top. It’s a flavorful and healthy, veggie packed, gluten-free lunch or dinner. Throw in some chopped Kale for extra Vitamin K!
Whole Foods Finds – Optional uncured Bacon (Nitrate Free), organic frozen veggies, organic bunched kale.
My favorite go-to gluten free meals are FULLY LOADED with flavor. Because, let’s be honest, bland food is boring. Lemons + rosemary = FLAVOR TOWN!
This healthy one pan meal is ready to eat in 20 minutes. Flavor packed with fresh rosemary, orange juice, lemon, veggies, sockeye salmon, olive oil or avocado oil, and spices. A deliciously nourishing gluten free meal that’s simple to make. Whole 30 and paleo friendly.
Whole foods Find – Fresh herbs & Primal Kitchen Avocado Oil
Nutrition is important in a go-to gluten free meal. These delicious breakfast cookies meet the criteria. Healthy omega 3’s… CHECK. Water soluble fiber and iron… CHECK. Delicious… CHECK!
These really are the ultimate no bake breakfast cookies! They’re packed full of wholesome ingredients, rich in fiber, plus a boost of protein! They tastes like a cookie, but they’re suitable for breakfast! Whole Foods Find – You’ll find plenty of gluten-free oats options!
I also believe that anything worthy of a must make recipe should be freezable and/or portable. Salad for lunch, ya’ll!
The spicy shrimp and kickin’ homemade Caesar dressing is key to making this gluten free salad shine! Tender shrimp tossed in chile powder, onion, and cayenne, then baked crispy! A flavorful and healthy protein-rich salad! Paleo option, if needed!
Whole Foods Find – The best tasting AVOCADOS! They also carry a wide selection of gluten-free and paleo friendly bread to make croutons.
Bonus: VEGETARIAN must make gluten free meals:
They Key to this CREAMY dairy free vegetarian dish is using Mayo! We love adding Primal Kitchen Paleo Chipotle mayo for an extra kick of spice!
