13 Gluten-Free Recipes That Will Make You Drool

13 Gluten-Free Recipes That Will Make You Drool

It is not easy when you switch from a “normal” diet to a gluten-free diet. One of the things I like do is reinvent old favorite recipes. It sometimes takes a bit of testing but well worth the challenge. Here is a great list of gluten-free recipes to get you started.

Breakfast

Cinnamon And Coconut Pancakes

    These are so easy to make and so good. I always like to us a cast iron frying pan, I believe they brown better. The trick is finding the right temperature so they don’t burn.

    Blueberry Quinoa

      How you can not fall in love with this breakfast? It is like having a dessert for breakfast! You can make the Quinoa the day before. I would use yogurt instead of half and half.

      Breakfast Pizza

        I bet your mom told you not to have pizza for breakfast! This is definitely not your mom’s pizza. With kale (sautéed in olive oil), smoked mozzarella, prosciutto and an egg this makes the perfect breakfast. If you are eating it with a fork, you can cook the egg medium, but if you want to pick it up and eat it, then let it get a little harder.

        Kitchen Sink Egg Muffins

          Every time you make this you can select new ingredients! I loving being able to change it up, whatever left overs or what is in the fridge always works great. These are actually really good cold or reheated so they are perfect snacks.

          Lunch

          Power Protein Salad

            Seriously how could you not want to eat this right now! Ensuring your lunch has a large portion of protein will give you the extra energy to make it through the rest of the day.

            Gluten-Free Vegan Dinner-Quinoa With Black Beans

              By easily switching the veggies and the fruit you can change it up everyday. Now add in a really awesome vinaigrette dressing you are set for awesome lunches.

              Curried Chicken Salad With Apples And Raisins 

                The lovely flavor of curry and apples together, makes a truly mouth-watering lunch! Chicken is a great low-fat protein to have at lunch. You can bake or grill up chicken to last the entire week and store in the fridge, handy whenever you need it.

                Salmon With Cucumber-Radish Relish

                salmon-cucumber-radish-relish-mld108276_vert

                  Growing up in Western Canada with easy access to Salmon, I didn’t realize how amazing it could really be when cooked perfectly! In this recipe the simpler the better, a little oil, salt and pepper.

                  Dinner

                  Cauliflower Lasagna

                  Advertising

                    Ohh the warm your tummy goodness that comes with comfort food. The gluten-free version of lasagna fits the bill!

                    Mongolian Beef (Low-Carb And Gluten-Free)

                      How can beef stripes in a little brown sauce taste sooo good! This is a very easy to make recipe that can be as low-carb as you want as well as being gluten-free. Fast to make as well, this will take less than 20 minutes to cook.

                      Cauliflower Pizza Crust, Healthy And Delicious!

                        We have to end the dinner section with PIZZA of course! This pizza is made with a cauliflower crust, lightly brown and super awesome. You could easily make the crust a head of time then add your toppings and bake it.

                        Appies

                        Gluten-Free Spring Rolls With Spicy Ginger Sauce

                        Advertising

                          These do take a bit of time to create, but setup a little assembly line and you will be set. I often make these in the morning and have them ready for a light lunch. Great finger food for any party!

                          Sweet ‘N Sour Bacon Wrapped Pineapple {GF, Low Calorie And Low Fat}

                            Can you smell the bacon yet? This particular recipe uses sweet and sour sauce on the bacon/pineapple wraps, but you can make it naked or with a little brown sugar and it also tastes wonderful! The last couple times I have made these, I literally make three or four cookie sheets at a time.

                            I hope this list gives you a few ideas for making your gluten-free cookie fun and delicious.

                            How to Stay Calm and Cool When You Are Extremely Stressful

                            How to Stay Calm and Cool When You Are Extremely Stressful

                            Being in a hurry all the time drains your energy. Your work and routine life make you feel overwhelmed. Getting caught up in things beyond your control stresses you out…

                            If you’d like to stay calm and cool in stressful situations, put the following 8 steps into practice:

                            1. Breathe

                            The next time you’re faced with a stressful situation that makes you want to hurry, stop what you’re doing for one minute and perform the following steps:

                            • Take five deep breaths in and out (your belly should come forward with each inhale).
                            • Imagine all that stress leaving your body with each exhale.
                            • Smile. Fake it if you have to. It’s pretty hard to stay grumpy with a goofy grin on your face.

                            Feel free to repeat the above steps every few hours at work or home if you need to.

                            2. Loosen up

                            After your breathing session, perform a quick body scan to identify any areas that are tight or tense. Clenched jaw? Rounded shoulders? Anything else that isn’t at ease?

                            Gently touch or massage any of your body parts that are under tension to encourage total relaxation. It might help to imagine you’re in a place that calms you: a beach, hot tub, or nature trail, for example.

                            3. Chew slowly

                            Slow down at the dinner table if you want to learn to be patient and lose weight. Shoveling your food down as fast as you can is a surefire way to eat more than you need to (and find yourself with a bellyache).

                            Be a mindful eater who pays attention to the taste, texture, and aroma of every dish. Chew slowly while you try to guess all of the ingredients that were used to prepare your dish.

                            Chewing slowly will also reduce those dreadful late-night cravings that sneak up on you after work.

                            4. Let go

                            Cliche as it sounds, it’s very effective.

                            The thing that seems like the end of the world right now?

                            It’s not. Promise.

                            Stressing and worrying about the situation you’re in won’t do any good because you’re already in it, so just let it go.

                            Letting go isn’t easy, so here’s a guide to help you:

                            21 Things To Do When You Find It Hard To Let Go

                            5. Enjoy the journey

                            Focusing on the end result can quickly become exhausting. Chasing a bold, audacious goal that’s going to require a lot of time and patience? Split it into several mini-goals so you’ll have several causes for celebration.

                            Stop focusing on the negative thoughts. Giving yourself consistent positive feedback will help you grow patience, stay encouraged, and find more joy in the process of achieving your goals.

                            6. Look at the big picture

                            The next time you find your stress level skyrocketing, take a deep breath, and ask yourself:

                            Advertising

                            Will this matter to me…

                            • Next week?
                            • Next month?
                            • Next year?
                            • In 10 years?

                            Hint: No, it won’t.

                            I bet most of the stuff that stresses you wouldn’t matter the next week, maybe not even the next day.

                            Stop agonizing over things you can’t control because you’re only hurting yourself.

                            7. Stop demanding perfection of yourself

                            You’re not perfect and that’s okay. Show me a person who claims to be perfect and I’ll show you a dirty liar.

                            Demanding perfection of yourself (or anybody else) will only stress you out because it just isn’t possible.

                            8. Practice patience every day

                            Below are a few easy ways you can practice patience every day, increasing your ability to remain calm and cool in times of stress:

                            • The next time you go to the grocery store, get in the longest line.
                            • Instead of going through the drive-thru at your bank, go inside.
                            • Take a long walk through a secluded park or trail.

                            Final thoughts

                            Staying calm in stressful situations is possible, all you need is some daily practice.

                            Taking deep breaths and eat mindfully are some simple ways to train your brain to be more patient. But changing the way you think of a situation and staying positive are most important in keeping cool whenever you feel overwhelmed and stressful.
