Notes and Tips for a Gluten-Free Lunch

  • Crispy cashew chicken tenders recipe gives the option to use soy sauce or coconut aminos. Make sure to use coconut aminos, gluten-free soy sauce, or tamari to make it gluten free!
  • While most of these recipes are naturally gluten-free, make sure always to check the label on ingredients, especially when you’re using sauces, marinades, and other store-bought ingredients.
  • Pair your lunch with gluten-free carbs and sides! If serving a wrap, make sure to use corn tortillas instead of flour. Use gluten-free bread when making sandwiches and gluten-free pasta when cooking pasta dishes. To make it easier to plan your meals, choose naturally gluten-free ingredients like rice, potatoes, quinoa, corn, lentils, and beans.
