Easy Gluten-Free Lunch Recipes

By , SparkPeople Blogger
Many people are choosing, for a variety of reasons, to reduce or eliminate gluten from their diet. Whether it's due to a food allergy, or just a personal preference  quick and easy gluten-free lunch recipes are hard to come by. Furthermore, supermarkets are now carrying gluten-free options, but they're often expensive and don't taste as good as homemade recipes. Instead of blowing the budget on store-bought items, I prefer products at are naturally gluten-free. This means that the items themselves are already gluten-free and can be combined into a full gluten-free meal. Regardless of your unique needs, these recipes are great choices for healthy lunches. 

Spring Rolls

This recipe is really easy; it's really more of a process than a recipe. Rice paper wrappers, which are available in the ethnic sections of most larger supermarkets these days, are a great way to wrap your veggies and protein for a quick snack or light lunch.

Taco Soup served with corn tortilla

Chef Meg cut the sodium on this hearty soup by swapping taco seasoning for three spices you already have on hand. There's a secret ingredient (garbanzo beans) that helps add fiber and thicken our Taco Soup!
