40 Gluten-Free Lunch and Snack Ideas

40 Gluten Free Lunch and Snack Ideas

Summer is here and that means this mom has to have lunches and snacks ready for two hungry boys (and their dad).  A few months ago I moved from working out of the home to working from home.  I hoped that with this switch I would be able to more involved with my kids during the summer and it would take some stress off of me. MarocBaba is around more in the summer too (he works at night) and is chief activity manager.  But, he isn’t really good in the kitchen.  I made this list of lunch and snack ideas for him and realized some of you might also be interested.

Lunch Ideas

  • Quesadilla on Corn Tortillas (filling ideas, black beans, cheese, turkey pepperoni, chicken in BBQ sauce)
  • Hamburgers
  • Mini Pizzas on gluten free bagels or english muffins

    Marcomama Are You Arabic?

  2. This is a great list. I don’t put much thought into gluten free foods, but some of these are so easy and much less expensive that I may try them. Great post.

  3. We have a household with 3 of 5 celiacs so I am always looking for ways to switch up meal time!

  4. This is a great resource! I pinned it and shared it on Facebook!
