Oatmeal is an inherently gluten-free grain. But cross-contamination between oats and wheat commonly occurs in the field or during processing. This is why some companies have taken precautions to avoid cross-contamination—these are the oats labeled as gluten-free.

We got a little crazy with this recipe and used cauliflower rice instead of oatmeal. The result was a chocolatey, peanut buttery bowl of goodness.

A small percent of the population can also react to gluten-free (GF) oats. Ask your physician or dietitian if you should be eating GF oats.

5 Quick & Easy Gluten-Free Lunch Ideas

Avocado stuffed with Shrimp, Green Onions, and Tomatoes

Stuff half an avocado with shrimp salad, chicken salad, egg salad, or tuna salad and you've got yourself a healthy and filling lunch. Go ahead and dress it up with toasted nuts or coconut, fresh herbs, or even hot sauce (or not).

Lettuce Wraps with Ham, Bell Peppers, Avocados, and Limes on the Side

Dice leftover chicken, steak, or pork and toss with a little salad dressing (make sure it's gluten free), avocado, and bell peppers. Then scoop into crisp lettuce leaves for a quick and healthy lunch.

Waffle Sandwiches with Scrambled Eggs and Bacon

Need a break from gluten-free bread? Reach for the gluten-free waffles and make yourself a scrambled egg and cheese sandwich. If opting for the sausage sandwich version, be sure to check the label to make sure it's gluten-free. (Some brands use fillers that may contain gluten.)

Make a quick quesadilla with chopped veggies, rotisserie chicken or beans. Just be sure to use gluten-free corn tortillas instead of flour tortillas if you're following a gluten-free diet. Place one corn tortilla in a heated skillet. Top with cheese, veggies, chicken or beans, then more cheese. Place another tortilla on top, gently press down, and cook for about 4 minutes, flip, and cook for about 4 more minutes until golden brown and cheese is melted.

This protein-packed lunch is guaranteed to help you stay full through the afternoon. Without cutting through the bottom, slice a large tomato into wedges and top with a healthy scoop of homemade tuna salad.
