Easy Go to Regular GF Meals

There are lots of easy go-to meals that are gluten free and here are some of our favorites.

One of the most difficult things about being diagnosed with celiac is the negativity – your mind seems to run constantly on what you can’t eat! We’ve found that one of the most helpful things you can do for yourself is to sit down and make a list of all the things that you CAN eat. Trust us, this list is a long one!  

The examples below are only some of the “regular” foods that you can still eat, without doing any gluten-free baking at all.

When substituting ingredients like tortillas, crackers, canned items, or any other items pre-made from the store be sure to read your labels. 

Make a List of What You Can Eat

Breakfast Ideas


Combine Bacon, Scrambled Eggs, Sauteed Corn Tortilla Pieces, and Cheese

Make sure to check labels and if you add granola, make sure it is gluten-free granola made with 100% gluten-free oats.

Some of our favorites are Fruity Pebbles, Corn Chex or Rice Chex. Always be sure to read the label before you purchase each time.


We love a full omelet, with ham, cheese, olives, tomato, and green onion.
