Need meal ideas-several allergies!

Recommended Posts

Enchiladas w/no cheese rice and beans (most corn tortilla brands state gluten free on them)


Spaghetti squash with tomato-based sauce and a big salad


Baked chicken with rice and veggies


Stir-fry with meat, veggies and rice


Pot roast with carrots and potatoes


Don't over-think it, there are plenty of meals that fit into this plan.

Option 1 Baked Chicken with olive oil and garlic

Steamed Broccoli or Green Beans

Steamed White Rice

Fruit Salad for Dessert or just apples and grapes cut up (something like that)


Option 2

Tinkayada (rice pasta- found at places like Whole Foods and Earthfare and Wegmans) and Prego Spaghetti Sauce (traditional -have to check for gluten but it is dairy, egg, nut safe)


Salad- dressing free or olive oil and vinegar toss


Option 3

Baked Pork Chops with onion and garlic, drizzled with olive oil

Mashed Potatoes- Olive oil, salt (garlic and onion powder if they have a safe brand- we use Tone's and McCormick- but I don't know about gluten), water if necessary to thin out a bit.

Steamed Vegetable or Corn

Fruit (any fruit washed and sliced is a nice treat)

Has someone confirmed that they will be able to eat/accept outside meals? My Ds is too sensitive for me to allow him to eat something that may have come from a cross contaminated kitchen.


If they are ok with accepting the meals (maybe there are non-allergic members who can eat), then:


A roast chicken or other meat with side vegetables. Don't use margarine (or butter) to season as almost all margarines contain some dairy.


Bake some potatoes or sweet potatoes and send them sealed in foil so the family can season them as needed. (Again, don't coat the outside of the potato with anything unless you are absolutely certain it is dairy free.)


You can make chili using beans, tomato juice and ground beef with seasonings. Big issue- check your seasonings to make sure they don't have wheat in them.


Caution with stir-fry- soy sauces often contain wheat. Caution with commercial tomato sauces- many contain dairy.


The more complex the meal, the more challenging it will be. Because you will have to check every ingredient from toppings to seasonings for unwanted ingredients. Simple whole foods work best for multiple allergies.

Well, I wouldn't even try due to the fear of cross-contamination since we aren't gluten free here....


But - if you can do it:


Baked chicken and rice with veggies. Cook the rice with gluten-free chicken broth so it tastes yummy.


Rice Penne pasta with ground beef or chicken and a tomato-based sauce


Steak Salad - lots of sliced veggies and thin sliced steak. Hmmm this would also be nice with beans or grilled chicken.
