It’s hard to imagine any diet without chocolate chip cookies. These gluten-free cookies are made with coconut flour and almond butter, so they’re great for anyone following paleo.

And they’re delicious to make whether you want chocolate chip or prefer to mix it up with something like cranberry white chocolate.

Serves 18


3/4 cup unsalted creamy almond butter

1/2 cup coconut sugar

2 Tbsp. coconut oil, melted

2 large eggs

1/4 cup coconut flour

1/2 tsp. baking soda

1/4 tsp. salt

Chicken Parmesan Casserole

There are plenty of gluten-free casseroles to fill up a meal plan, like broccoli and rice, or sausage and potatoes. When you want baked pasta, though, you’ll have to look for a substitute.

Instead of using gluten-free pasta like quinoa, spaghetti squash is used as the “grain” in this casserole for a gluten-free chicken parm. So while it’s a baked casserole, this is also a healthy dinner of lean meat and veggies.

Serves 8



1 1/2 lbs. boneless skinless chicken breast

1 large egg

1/2 cup almond flour

1/4 cup (about 1 oz.) grated Parmesan

1/2 tsp. salt

1/8 tsp. freshly ground black pepper

1/2 tsp. garlic powder

1 tsp. dried parsley

1/2 tsp. dried basil

3 Tbsp. extra-virgin olive oil


4 cups cooked spaghetti squash

1 Tbsp. extra-virgin olive oil

1/2 tsp. salt

1/8 tsp. freshly ground black pepper

1/2 Tbsp. dried parsley

1 1/2 cups easy keto marinara sauce

6 oz. fresh mozzarella

Fresh basil (optional garnish)

Protein Granola

A lot of gluten-free foods have a higher price tag when you buy the packaged version. But make them yourself, and you can cut costs, especially for something simple like gluten-free cereal.

This one has so many delicious ingredients – including coconut, almond, pecans, and even baked lentils – that you’ll enjoy it more than the premade granola, whether you eat it in a bowl of cereal with milk or mix some into yogurt.

Serves 15 / Makes 5 cups


2 cups gluten-free rolled oats

1 cup unsweetened flaked coconut

1 cup sliced almonds

1/2 cup pecans, coarsely chopped

2 Tbsp. chia seeds

1/2 tsp. ground cinnamon

1/4 tsp. salt

1 1/2 cups cooked lentils (from 3/4 cup dry lentils)

1/2 cup pure maple syrup

2 Tbsp. coconut sugar

1/4 cup coconut oil, melted

Gluten-Free Cheddar Biscuits

Not every kind of flour is going to make fluffy gluten-free biscuits. For this cheddar bay biscuit copycat recipe, like the ones at Red Lobster, it’s recommended to use Arthur’s Flour gluten-free baking mix.

It contains a blend of enriched brown rice flour, potato starch, and leavening agents like baking soda. That blend makes this cheesy biscuit light even though the flavors are rich.

Serves 12


2 cups gluten-free baking mix

1 cup milk

1 cup (about 4 oz.) shredded sharp cheddar

1 1/2 tsp. garlic powder, divided

1 tsp. dried oregano

2 Tbsp. butter, melted

Gluten-Free Mocha Protein Donuts

These chocolate donuts are going to disappear in minutes – and that’s ok. They don’t contain any flour and only have all-natural sugars from mashed banana.

These macros are so amazing they’ll make you double-take. Each mini donut has less than 50 calories, mocha icing included, yet delivers over 7 grams of protein.

Serves 4 / Makes 12



2 Tbsp. cold brew coffee concentrate

1/2 medium banana, mashed

1/2 cup WHEY+ chocolate protein isolate

2 Tbsp. cacao powder

1/2 tsp. baking powder

Pinch of sea salt

Everything Bagel Dogs

It’s possible to make gluten-free bagels – and even to find them in grocery stores – but low-carb bagels? This recipe manages to do that and even more.

The “bagel” is a dough made from almond, coconut, mozzarella, and cream cheese. That’s wrapped around a hot dog, sprinkled with everything bagel seasoning, and baked until golden brown. This is one gluten-free lunch recipe you’ll want to try even if you’re not following a special diet.

Serves 6


Hot Dogs:

1/4 cup almond flour

Black Bean Cauliflower Bread

Instead of looking for a gluten-free flour that replaces wheat, you can substitute your favorite protein powder.

This recipe also uses dried black beans, which can be ground into a flour to mix with whey and rice protein for a nutritional profile that goes beyond balanced. The result is a gluten-free bread that’s delicious slathered in almond butter for breakfast or a post-workout snack.

Serves 12


3/4 cup dried black beans, ground into flour

3 scoops WHEY+ vanilla protein isolate

1/4 cup + 1 Tbsp. rice protein powder

2 tsp. psyllium husks

1/2 Tbsp. ground cinnamon

2 tsp. baking powder

1 tsp. baking soda

You can pick up a loaf of bread in most grocery stores to make a gluten-free sandwich. But what if you want a breakfast sandwich?

These gluten-free English muffins, made with almond flour, are perfect whether you’re craving fried egg and avocado, or want to take a page out of Elvis’s breakfast book with bacon, peanut butter and banana.

Serves 4

3 Tbsp. ghee (or coconut oil)

Carrot Cake Muffins with Cream Cheese Frosting

Gluten-free baking can use a whole lot of alternatives to wheat flour. Many recipes use a mix of different ones to achieve the right texture, so be sure to check what was originally used by the baker. In this case, it’s a blend of rice, millet, sorghum, and more. Pick up Arrowhead Mills if you don’t want to make a gluten-free baking mix from scratch.

These gluten-free muffins are more like a healthy carrot cake, complete with icing. Turn them into gluten-free cupcakes that have less sugar by making a cream cheese frosting with whey protein powder instead of the honey and heavy cream.

Serves 12



2 cups gluten-free flour

3/4 cup raw honey

1 tsp. baking soda

1 tsp. baking powder

1 1/2 tsp. ground cinnamon

Dash of pumpkin pie spice

1/2 tsp. sea salt

2 large eggs

1/3 cup coconut oil

1/3 cup milk (or non-dairy milk of choice)

1 Tbsp. raw apple cider vinegar

1 tsp. vanilla extract

2 cups shredded carrot

1 cup shredded apple

2/3 cup semisweet chocolate chips

Cream Cheese Frosting:

Craving French toast but following a gluten-free, low-carb meal plan? This version comes in the form of a protein bar – no bread or flour included.

Yet there’s still plenty of gourmet French toast flavor from maple essence, ground almonds, and coconut flakes. And unlike regular French toast, this gluten-free breakfast bar can be grabbed on the go.

Serves 4


1 scoop WHEY+ vanilla protein isolate

1/4 cup coconut flakes

1 Tbsp. agave syrup (or honey)

2 Tbsp. unsweetened almond milk

6 Tbsp. ground almonds

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.

Many companies offer a money-back guarantee because they know the majority of dissatisfied customers aren’t going to go through the hassle of actually returning the product to get their money back.

If you bought more than one bottle of a supplement on your first purchase and don’t like it, we would ask that you send the unopened bottles back to us for a refund because we can put them back into our sellable inventory.
