We have a gluten free household due to 2 members having celiac disease. My 6 year old Hunter has been gluten free since he was 6 mos. old when he got really sick. He currently is going through the it’s not fair phase especially when it comes to lunch options for his brothers (dylan can eat at school, dylan can have lunchables, dylan can have this and I can’t…you get the idea). My whole inside and out healthy living approach is about making healthy living fit our lives and us feel good about it. Using Tyson Gluten-free chicken I found in the Frozen Food section of Sam’s Club, I have created a gluten-free recipe that is great for a deliciously healthy lunch option! I cannot believe how many people ask us “So what can you eat?” after we explain we have Celiac Disease. My response pretty much anything that is fresh like meats and produce for example. Gluten Free does not necessarily mean healthy when it comes to processed goods so when making gluten-free recipes, I like to avoid processed goods that offer no nutritional value.
Sometimes I can create some elaborate recipes. However, in this case I feel it is best to focus on making simple and delicious lunches for gluten free kids so life is fair! From time to time, I buy gluten lunchables for my non-gluten free kids. However, I have noticed that even the “healthy” lunchables are filled with heavily processed foods and even candy & artificial juice drinks. Using some of our gluten-free cooking staples, see how easy a naturally gluten-free lunch can be using Tyson gluten-free chicken, fresh produce, and gluten-free pretzels for my gluten free & non-gluten free kids lunch. I like to show how easy naturally gluten free can be. With this recipe, I can make both my kids happy while providing them a healthy meal that makes me feel good about what I am offering (plus it saves me from making 2 different lunches)!
First let’s pick a protein! While traditionally packaged unseasoned raw meat is gluten free, you must verify that the precooked varieties are. Between seasonings and additives, you are not necessarily safe unless it says it’s gluten free right on the package like Tyson gluten-free chicken! I love the grilled flavor that just takes about 20 minutes in the oven instead of actually grilling. Sam’s Club is going to have Tyson Gluten Free in-store demo! I am super excited since we have to turn down many in-store demos and plan to return in May when they are at our local Sam’s Club!
After we bought pineapple and celery at Sam’s Club along with the Tyson Gluten-Free Chicken. The boys love fun lunches so I use PopChef to make different shapes. The key to keeping kids healthy is finding foods they love, making it fun, and adding some variety to it!
