Chicken Parmesan Casserole

Gluten Free Chicken Parmesan Casserole Picture courtesy of I Breathe I’m Hungry

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

Ingredients

Chicken:

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

Casserole:

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

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

Ingredients

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)

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

Ingredients

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

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

Ingredients

Donut:

2 Tbsp. cold brew coffee concentrate

1/2 medium banana, mashed

1/2 cup WHEY+ chocolate protein isolate

2 Tbsp. cacao powder

Gluten Free Bagel Dog Recipe Picture courtesy of Peace, Love & Low-Carb

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.

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

Ingredients

3/4 cup dried black beans, ground into flour

3 scoops WHEY+ vanilla protein isolate

1/4 cup + 1 Tbsp. rice protein powder

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

Ingredients

Muffins:

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

1/4 cup coconut flakes

1 Tbsp. agave syrup (or honey)

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.

Clinically Effective Doses

Great ingredients aren't enough to make a great product—you also need correct doses.

Where your supplements are made matters, because rules and regulations regarding quality and purity differ from country to country.

Not ours.

Every ingredient of every supplement we produce is tested for heavy metals, microbes, allergens, and other contaminants to 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 and that more research is needed.

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