5 Ways To Work Around A Gluten And Dairy Free Diet
Is if trying to eat gluten-free wasn’t enough, now you discover that you have to follow a gluten and dairy free diet! Have no fear: your menu can still be rich in taste and fulfill your need for satisfying foods. Where do you start? All But Gluten™ offers the following five tips to help you cope with eating a gluten and dairy free diet.
#1. Substitute Soy Or Almond Milk For Regular Milk
Enjoy your fave gluten-free cereal or gluten-free granola with milk again: just not regular lactose-laden milk! Most grocery stores now carry several varieties of milk that are not only creamy and delicious, but meet the restrictions of your gluten and dairy free diet. Try almond milk, soy milk, or coconut milk and still enjoy the food combinations you love, without the discomfort that lactose may cause.
#2. No More Cheese? Experiment With New Spices
Yes, we know that not being able to eat cheese is a very sad affair. However, your meals can still be incredibly tasty! Search your grocery store’s spice aisle to find new and exciting spice blends. Visit a gourmet cooking store for even more varied and exotic choices. Many blends exist that are pre-mixed to mimic popular ethnic tastes, such as curry, Asian five spice, Mediterranean, and Greek. Surprise your taste buds, and you may no longer even miss cheese!
#3. Seek Out Frozen Fruit Bars As Part Of A Gluten And Dairy Free Diet
Unfortunately, ice cream is out when you’re following a gluten and dairy free diet. Don’t despair, however. You can still fulfill your frozen food fantasies with frozen fruit bars and fruit popsicles. If you don’t enjoy the sugary popsicles of your youth, there are now fancy fruit popsicles that contain real pieces of fruit. These are sure to satisfy those ice cream cravings!
#4. Stumped On Main Courses? Stick To Basics
Meal planning doesn’t have to be more difficult on a gluten and dairy free diet. Focus your main courses around the standard protein, starch, and veggie combination, and you’ll be pleasantly satisfied. Many people are surprised that they can still eat rice and potatoes on a gluten and dairy free diet, but you definitely can!
# 5. Seek Out Pre-Packaged Foods With Gluten-Free Labels
Many products geared specifically toward gluten-free diets also conform to allergy-free and dairy-free restrictions. Check labels carefully, and you may be pleasantly surprised to find that many of your go-to gluten-free convenience foods are also dairy-free.

Need Gluten-Free Dinner Recipes? Consider Quinoa Stuffed Pork Tenderloin
If your family eats gluten-free foods, it can seem like your dinner choices are limited. When you’re looking for something different that your whole family will enjoy, consider a quinoa stuffed pork tenderloin.
Gather The Ingredients For Gluten-Free Dinner Recipes
First, gather the ingredients necessary for your gluten-free dinner recipes. For the quinoa stuffed tenderloin, you’ll first need to make the stuffing. Chop up an apple, half an onion, two cloves of garlic plus a handful of mushrooms and sauté everything in a couple tablespoons of olive oil. Once the onions and apples are softened, toss in some raisins and mix with a cup of cooked quinoa.
Cut a pocket into the pork tenderloin and place the stuffing into the pocket. Then season the outside of the tenderloin with a little bit of cinnamon, salt and pepper to taste. Place everything in a baking dish and roast for about 35-40 minutes at 350 degrees. The pork needs to be cooked until it’s no longer pink.
Looking For Side Dishes To Go With Your Gluten-Free Dinner Recipes?
Side dishes can help enhance your meal, but it can be hard to find some that are gluten-free. Vegetables roasted in a little of olive oil and lemon juice and tossed with breadcrumbs made out of a gluten-free bread are a healthy and a gluten-free option.
Don’t Forget About Dessert
No meal is complete without a little sweetness at the end. If you’re in the mood for a little treat, consider All But Gluten’s chocolate chip cookies. They’re so good, you’d swear they were baked right in your own kitchen.
