Easy gluten swaps

A gluten-free diet doesn't have to be dull. Here are some easy swaps for your favourite foods.

Breakfast

  • Choose from the many gluten-free mueslis in the health food aisle or make your own using rice, quinoa and millet flakes with dried cranberries, shredded coconut and pistachios.
  • Missing your traditional bircher muesli? Try soaking chia seeds overnight in some almond milk, cinnamon and grated apple/berries.

Lunch

  • Swap your sandwich for a gluten free wrap or try using rice paper rolls with chicken, thinly sliced vegetables, mint and chilli.

Dinner

  • Swap normal pasta for gluten-free pasta. The secret is to not overcook it – if you do it becomes mushy.
  • Substitute couscous for cooked quinoa using a gluten-free chicken stock.
  • Make your own pizza bases using a gluten-free wrap (for a thin base alternative) or gluten-free bread mixture.

Snacks

  • Swap dips and water crackers for gluten-free dip, rice crackers and vegetable sticks.
  • Swap flavoured for unflavoured plain popcorn, potato chips and corn chips are all gluten free.
  • Crunchy roasted chickpeas with Moroccan spices are the perfect high protein alternative to regular potato crisps.

Following a gluten-free diet doesn’t have to be dull and tasteless. Here are some easy swaps for your favourite foods.
