10 Gluten-Free Dinners That Won’t Disappoint You

You’ve probably noticed that it’s hard to find good gluten-free recipes.

And you’ve probably also noticed that many of the tasty ones are loaded with far more calories than you want to eat.

You can go through dozens of gluten-free recipes before landing on something that you actually want to add to your rolodex.

This makes it hard to enjoy your diet, and means having to give up many of the gluten-containing meals that you used to enjoy.

That’s why you need to check out these 10 healthy, “diet-friendly” gluten-free dinner recipes.

They’re easy to make, they taste fantastic, and they can actually fit your macros.


Chicken Pot Pie Soup

Serves 6

Craving chicken pot pie? You might think this classic comfort food is out of reach, depending on your dietary restrictions. Pie crust is made with flour and butter, and a biscuit topping is basically the same.

Instead you can enjoy this gluten-free, dairy-free chicken pot pie soup, which is like eating the savory filling. If you’re missing the crust, serve with a biscuit made with gluten-free oat flour.

Gluten-Free Margherita Pizza

Serves 4

A lot of gluten-free pizza recipes will leave out the crust altogether, replacing it with a thick slice of eggplant or zucchini instead. That’s great if it’s what you’re craving, but sometimes you just need the real thing, dough and all.

In that case, whip up your own gluten-free flour mix, and you’ll always be able to make a gluten-free pizza that suits your tastes – and beats delivery any day.

Lemony Lentil & Chickpea Salad

Serves 6

This is an amazing gluten-free salad, not just because of the flavor. You’ll also love that it’s nutrient-dense, keeps well throughout the week, and can be taken to-go without getting soggy.

It’s perfect to make on the weekend so that you don’t have to think about lunch for your workdays, and you can mix it up with optional toppings like pumpkin seeds and cranberries.

Slow Cooker Chicken Chili

Serves 10

Chili is a perfect gluten-free dinner because it’s nutritionally well-balanced, and almost every option for how to make it is still on the table.

This slow cooker chili uses chicken breast, but it’s easy to make a version with beef or just beans instead. Any variety you choose to eat will go well with everyone’s favorite gluten-free bread: cornbread.

Pork Chops with Carrots and Toasted Buckwheat

Serves 4

Our favorite meat entrées, like steak and chicken breast, are often gluten-free unless there’s a coating or sauce. But it can be hard to think of new side dishes besides rice and quinoa.

This restaurant-quality dish is surprisingly simple. The real difference is using buckwheat groats, which are toothsome and nutty, as the base to serve thick bone-in pork chops.

Nutrition Facts (Per Serving)

Aleppo pepper or crushed red pepper flakes

Almond Encrusted Tilapia

Serves 4

This easy gluten-free dinner is adaptable, so you can easily change the number of servings or swap out another type of fish.

That makes this a great dinner for two on a weeknight. It’ll take a half hour tops and can go with a simple side like sautéed green beans or roasted beets.

Herbed Quinoa with Shrimp & Zucchini

Serves 1

It’s a good thing quinoa is gluten-free. Like rice, it’s an excellent side dish on its own and can also be made into pasta, flour, cereal, salad, and more – including this seafood entrée.

And quinoa offers healthier carbs than you’ll find in processed wheat, plus slightly more plant-based protein to complement the lean protein of shrimp.

Nutrition Facts (Per Serving)

1 cup water

2/3 cup dry quinoa

1 clove garlic, minced

1/4 cup chopped fresh basil and chives

1 lemon

Corned Beef & Cabbage

Serves 6

When you’re eating gluten-free, there’s still plenty of comfort food to enjoy. And this one can be prepared in a Crock Pot, so it’s easy for kitchen novices too. Corned beef is a brisket that’s been salt cured, and it can be cooked like any other pot roast.

The resulting flavor will be more robust with the corned beef spices like mustard seeds, cinnamon, ginger, and allspice – all part of the preparation before you buy it from the store.

Nutrition Facts (Per Serving)



48 g

2 lbs. small red potatoes

2 Tbsp. butter

1 Tbsp. cider vinegar

1/2 tsp. freshly ground black pepper

1/4 tsp. salt

1 bay leaf

Pinch of ground allspice

4 lbs. corned beef brisket, trimmed of visible fat

Finely chopped parsley (optional), for garnish

What if I told you that just about everything magazines and trainers “teach” you about dieting is wrong?

What if you could build muscle and lose fat eating “naughty” foods every week?

What if you didn’t have to suffer through low-carb dieting to get lean? In fact, what if you could eat all the carbs you wanted?

And what if you didn’t have to gorge yourself just to gain muscle and didn’t have to put on pounds and pounds of ugly fat, either?

In short, what if I told you that proper dieting--whether you want to maximize fat loss or muscle growth--is much simpler and more enjoyable than you’ve been led to believe?

Imagine eating delicious, filling meals every day...never feeling starved or stuffed...having great energy levels and workouts...and watching your body respond exactly as you desire, dropping fat or adding muscle each and every week.

And imagine finally understanding how proper dieting really works, never again falling for the BS, tricks, and gimmicks pushed by “gurus” and other shysters.

Well, I have good news.

All these “fantasies” can be a reality...if you know how to do a handful of “little” things correctly.

You see, when you know how to diet properly--and this doesn’t mean learning to eat boiled chicken and raw broccoli six times per day--getting lean and muscular becomes simple, convenient, and dare I say...enjoyable.

And this book will show you the way.

Clinically Effective Doses

Many ingredients in supplements don’t have any scientifically validated benefits, and many ingredients that do are often underdosed to the point of irrelevance.

That’s why we only use the choice ingredients and precise doses shown to be effective in peer-reviewed scientific studies.

Clinically Effective Doses

You need more than great ingredients to make great products—you also need proper doses. That’s why we use the precise doses of ingredients shown to be effective in peer-reviewed scientific studies.

100% Natural Ingredients

“Natural” doesn’t always mean “better,” but in many cases, natural ingredients are superior to artificial ones for various reasons, including purity, safety, and efficacy.

That’s why all of our ingredients in all of our products come from plant and animal sources, including sweeteners, colors, and flavors.

Made in USA

If you want to ensure the supplements you’re swallowing every day are safe and effective, you want products produced in the USA.

That’s why all of our supplements are made in America in NSF-certified and FDA-inspected facilities that operate in accordance with the Current Good Manufacturing Practice (cGMP) regulations.

Lab Tested

Did you know that supplements can contain dangerously high levels of toxins like lead, arsenic, and cadmium?

That’s why we test every ingredient of every supplement we produce for heavy metals, microbes, allergens, and other contaminants and ensure they meet the strict purity standards set by the FDA.

Naturally Sweetened & Flavored

While artificial sweeteners may not be as dangerous as some people claim, studies suggest that regular consumption of these chemicals may indeed be harmful to our health.

That’s why all of our supplements are naturally sweetened and flavored and contain no artificial food dyes, fillers, or other unnecessary junk.

Science-Backed Ingredients

Many ingredients in supplements don’t have any scientifically validated benefits. That’s why we only use choice ingredients shown to be effective in peer-reviewed scientific studies.
