Easy Gluten Free Recipes Packed with Protein

Whether you’re on a gluten-free diet or making meals for someone who is, it’s important to have good sources of protein in that gluten-free meal plan. The protein source doesn’t have to be limited to meat and protein powder, though! I’m going to share some out-of-the-box ideas for bringing protein into your gluten-free diet.

Important Note About Protein Powder:

Not all whey protein powders are gluten-free, so check the ingredients before purchasing them. Some whey protein powders contain the ingredient glutamine, which is derived from wheat protein. People with celiac disease or non-celiac gluten sensitivity should not use whey protein powder that contains glutamine.

Many legumes, like chickpeas, black beans, and fava beans, are low in fat and high in protein.
