Gluten-Free, Dairy-Free Breakfast Recipes
I love to fill up on whole foods that will power me through my morning. Here are some tips for making delicious breakfast ideas for those with gluten and dairy food sensitivities:
- Swap the milk in your smoothies: I like to use almond milk or soy milk for a dairy-free option in my smoothies, and I also add healthy fats like avocado or almond butter.
- Use gluten-free grains: Pancakes made from hearty, gluten-free whole grains like buckwheat or almond flour are another great breakfast option.
- Remember, eggs are dairy-free: Some people are under the misconception that eggs are dairy, but I have good news for you: they’re not! Dairy products are made from animal milk (such as cow, goat, or sheep’s milk), meaning eggs are not dairy. In fact, many of these gluten-free, dairy-free recipes use eggs! Note: If you’re looking for a breakfast vegan option, you’ll need to skip the recipes with eggs. Though eggs are dairy free, they aren’t vegan, since they come from an animal.

Gluten-Free, Dairy-Free Dinner Recipes
I’ve discovered so many quick healthy dinners that are also gluten-free and dairy-free.
Simply pair some type of protein (meat, fish, black beans, eggs, etc.) with a starch and fresh veggies, and you’ll end up with a satisfying meal that makes you forget the dairy and gluten!
Many of these meals can be made in a slow cooker for an easy weeknight dinner that accommodates food allergies.
Follow these tips for winning dinners that fit within your diet:
- Swap out soy sauce: Use tamari instead of soy sauce to get a gluten-free dinner!
- Check labels closely: If you have Celiac disease, be sure to check labels on products like chicken stock to ensure your meal is completely gluten-free.
- Achieving a creamy consistency: Homemade cashew milk is a great hack for getting a creamy sauce or one pan meal without the cream. You can easily make your own by soaking cashews in water, draining, and blending.
- Cheesy flavor without the cheese: Nutritional yeast is an amazing ingredient that adds cheesy flavor without dairy.
- Use gluten-free flour or cornstarch the thicken stews: Some soups and stews are thickened with a roux, which is basically any kind of fat and thickener whisked together. Fortunately, you can sub any kind of all-purpose gluten-free flour in place of regular flour when making gluten-free soup.

Does she need to be dairy-free and egg-free? Or just dairy-free? Just wondering because it’s a common misunderstanding that eggs are not dairy. They’re different allergies.
