Gluten-free meals and snacks

I work with a growing number of athletes who do not eat gluten. Many struggle with getting in enough carbohydrate for their level of training. They don't know how to be more creative than eating rice and sweet potatoes with every meal. So for all you gluten-free eaters out there, here are 2 days of gluten-free eating.

Day 1

Breakfast: Low-fat cottage cheese topped with fresh berries and almonds; drizzle with honey

Lunch: Wrap made with Rudi's brand spinach tortilla, Boar's Head brand deli turkey, pesto, mozzarella cheese, fresh mushrooms and spinach. Serve with fresh cantaloupe.

Dinner: Lean turkey burger an Udi's brand hamburger bun with slice of watermelon and steamed broccoli

Snack: Low-fat string cheese with mini box of raisins

Snack: Homemade hummus with baby carrots

Day 2

Breakfast: 2-egg omelet loaded with veggies; serve with a glass of  low-fat milk (cow's or soy), strawberries and bowl of grits on the side

Lunch: Stuffed bell pepper with rice or quinoa; add in beans, corn, mushrooms and gluten-free salsa

Dinner: Sirloin steak with roasted redskin potatoes and sauteed garlic, asparagus and carrots

Snack: Love Grown Foods or Udi's brand granola over non-fat, plain Greek yogurt

Snack: Justin's brand almond butter packet with an apple

Be Extraordinary,
