Gluten-free meal plan 

Going on a gluten-free diet has many benefits, especially for someone with celiac disease. This includes relieving digestive symptoms that could include bloating, diarrhea, or constipation, gas, fatigue, and many more. And if you don’t have a celiac disease but you are looking for ways to lose weight, then going on a gluten-free diet is one of your options since this diet eliminates many junk foods that add unwanted calories to the diet, and your focus will be mainly on fruits, veggies, and lean proteins.

It’s also perfectly normal if you feel overwhelmed or underwhelmed with the options available when you are on a gluten-free diet. However, a smart way to make meals you won’t get tired of while staying on budget is by making your own meal plan! 

There are plenty of gluten-free options that will allow you to enjoy healthy and delicious meals. And to have an effective gluten-free meal plan, your meals should include these naturally gluten-free foods:

  • Meats and fish. All meats and fish, except battered or coated meats.
  • Eggs. All types of eggs are naturally gluten-free.
  • Dairy. Plain dairy products, such as plain milk, plain yogurt and cheeses. However, flavored dairy products may have added ingredients that contain gluten, so you will need to read the food labels.
  • Fruits and vegetables. All fruits and vegetables are naturally free of gluten.
  • Grains. Quinoa, rice, buckwheat, tapioca, sorghum, corn, millet, amaranth, arrowroot, teff and oats (if labeled gluten-free).
