Whenever someone finds out that I avoid grains and gluten in my diet, I inevitably hear the question, “What do you eat?!”  This usually involves a question about lunches, with people wondering what to do when sandwiches are no longer an option.

There are so many options for grain-free and gluten-free lunches – you just have to think outside the box a little.

  • Make tuna salad and eat it over lettuce instead of between two pieces of bread.
  • Roast up a chicken for dinner and then shred up the leftovers with the veggie of your choice, re-heat and enjoy.
  • Make a big pot of soup, stew, or chili and portion out a few servings for the work or school week.

This Curry Chicken Salad with Apples and Pecans is perfect for lunch or a light dinner. I like to eat it just as it is, but if I have some mixed greens, it is a delicious topping for that too!

This recipe is flexible in that you can swap out some of the ingredients and make it suit your tastes. Not a fan of apples? Put some sliced grapes in there. Like things a little spicier? Use hot curry powder instead of sweet. Prefer carrots to celery? Go for it! The only thing I strongly recommend is using a good high-quality mayonnaise and the best way to ensure that is to make it yourself. Don’t panic, it’s super easy. Check out how in this post.
