My partner and I want to try going gluten free for a month or so to try and eliminate some concerns I have allergy-wise. My allergies in general have gotten worse over the last year or so (or enough for me to notice) and one trigger seems to be bread/pasta/tortillas, but I'm not really sure.

Overall I know how to do this - eat rice and veggie curries, salads, etc. But I rely so much on pasta for easy meals.

Anyone have tips for starting out with the gluten-free thing? And easy lunch/dinner ideas that won't leave me wishing for a noodle?

Thanks, y'all!

I'm mostly wheat free atm, can only tolerate it in small amounts. I've been relying on GF pasta, I actually find it more filling than wheat pasta and doesn't spike my blood sugar levels like wheat pasta did. I find it really handy with store bought pesto and some veg & protein mixed in. Rice is very nice with pesto too.

i was doing GF for a few weeks here to try to figure out some gastric problems. lots of beans and rice. gallo pinto is one of those things i can have in the fridge and eat every day. (with a banana and hot sauce)

I'm gf and low-carb (50g or less for 6 days + one day unlimited re-feed) so most of my meals are pretty repetitive - about 6 servings of 2 or 3 different veggies, some fat and a protein chunk/burger or beans... sometimes it's salad, sometimes it's soup, sometimes it's plated.

on lazy days i'll just do a smoothie with protein powder, fat and some veggies.

on my re-feed day i'll do white rice, quinoa/corn boxed pasta, gf pancakes or biscuits and/or sweet potatoes.

sometimes i'll spiral cut sweet potatoes or zucchini into noodles - they taste really good but it isn't really a convincing pasta replacement.
