- Sandwiches on g.f. bread or on Corn Thins.
- Sandwich fixin’s like lunch meat, served w/ g.f. chips (plain, potato chips, Fritos, etc) & fruit, and maybe a pickle.
- Chicken noodle soup. Works best using g.f. spaghetti, broken into 2-3″ pieces. I use ORGANIC Chicken Better Than Bouillon, which is pricey, but lasts a long time. (At the time of this writing, the organic is GFCF — the regular variety has whey in it.) You can find it at TJ’s for about $3, or at a regular grocery store for about $5.49. Start with just a cup or so of water in a med saucepan. Mix in 2-3 rounded tablespoons of BTB, whisk until combined. Then add water until you get the strength of bouillon you like. Bring to boil, and add broken g.f. spaghetti, boil until about 75% cooked. Then, add a few handfuls of veggies (the small pea/corn/carrot mixed frozen veggies works well for kids), and some cooked (leftover) chicken that’s been cut into bitsy pieces. Bring back to boil, and cook until the noodles are done.
- Tostadas. Heat the shells for a few minutes in the oven, then top with warmed refried beans and whatever toppings you have on hand: Minced leftover meat, salsa, sliced olives, whatever.
- G.f. pasta with storebought pasta sauce (check for GFCF ingredients!).
- Chili: Hormel Chunky NO BEANS chili is GFCF. We place some Fritos in our bowls, and spoon the chili over the top. Serve with fruit.
- Franks ‘n’ beans — but don’t use the canned type that already has the hot dogs added in; it has MSG and a lot of sugar. Just chop up some hot dogs, and add them to a can of store-bought baked beans, and warm on the stove. There are many baked bean varieties that are g.f., but watch out; some of them contain soy sauce that was made with wheat.
- Lunchmeat/sandwiches with g.f. Tater Tots as a side, instead of chips.
- Baked beans. If you want a little more meat, dice and fry half a package of bacon, drain and add in a large can of storebought baked beans (checking to make sure they’re g.f. — some have wheat-containing soy sauce). Serve with fruit.
- Or… leftovers from last night’s dinner.
