Let Go of Meal Stereotypes

by Tayler Silfverduk, DTR

Whether it’s a due to a gluten-intolerance or celiac disease, switching over to a gluten-free lifestyle can be a massive change! Suddenly, many breakfasts, lunch, dinner, and snacking favorites are off-limits. This can be disappointing and sometimes even be isolating. Especially, if someone is used to reaching for a bowl of cereal for a quick breakfast. The best way to approach such a major lifestyle change is to leave preconceived notions of what mealtimes should look like behind.

This means letting go of the idea that cereal, muffins, pancakes, waffles, toast, and other usually gluten-filled breakfast foods are necessary for a delicious breakfast. The same goes for lunch, leave that ham and cheese sandwich at the grocery store.

This isn’t to say that gluten-free alternatives can’t be enjoyed at meal-times. There is still room for the occasional gluten-free chocolate chip cookie, hamburger bun etc. However, it’s still important that meals are free from the confinement of cultural and societal norms. Especially when eating any kind of limiting diet.

This is important because gluten-free alternatives are not always the most affordable or healthiest. On top of not always being the healthiest, they are often also disappointing. Picking naturally gluten-free meal-options is better because not only do they tend to be more delicious, but they also are often more nutrient dense and satisfying.

Dishes like buddha bowls, chia seed puddings, energy bites, nourish bowls, no-crust quiches, omelets, overnight gluten-free oats, salads, and vegetable hashes are all nourishing, delicious, and naturally gluten-free options that can fit into any meal-time. These aren’t the only tasty and healthy naturally gluten-free options, there are endless choices of amazing gluten-free meals.

Switch thoughts of missing out on waffles, pancake stacks, and bowls of cereal, for thoughts of excitement towards smoothies and baked egg dishes. Forget about what is being missed and focus on what gets to be enjoyed! A positive mindset and approach is the key to enjoying a gluten-free lifestyle instead of being a victim of it.
