Healthy, Gluten-Free Meals Seniors Will Enjoy

Transitioning to a gluten-free lifestyle can be difficult for anyone, but it can be even harder for seniors to make the change even if their health depends on it. Here are some delicious gluten-free meals your elderly loved one is sure to enjoy eating, brought to you by the home care experts at Home Care Assistance Redondo Beach.

Fajitas on Corn Tortillas

Most Mexican food requires very little modification to become gluten-free. Fajitas already contain the vegetables and protein seniors need, and they can easily be placed in corn tortillas instead of flour. Your loved one can enjoy the great taste of fajitas without ingesting any harmful gluten.

Chicken Breasts, Vegetables, and Rice

This simple, yet healthy and well-balanced meal is easy to make for your loved one. It is also naturally gluten-free, so you don’t have to worry about changing any of the ingredients. You can add variety to this meal by swapping the seasoning on the chicken and trying different vegetables.

Spaghetti Squash Alfredo

This is a much healthier alternative to Fettuccine Alfredo. Follow a normal recipe for Alfredo sauce, but add it to cooked spaghetti squash instead of fettuccine noodles. This allows you to cut carbs and gluten from your loved one’s diet in one recipe. It is also soft, making it easy to chew.

Lettuce Wraps

The easiest way for your loved one to avoid gluten is to eliminate bread from his or her diet entirely. Lettuce wraps are a great alternative to sandwiches. Just put the meat, cheese, and condiments in a large leaf of lettuce instead of using sliced bread. These make for a great lunch and can help your loved one eat more vegetables.

Stuffed Peppers

Stuffed peppers arevery versatile. They can be filled with ground beef, chicken, quinoa, or anything else you and your loved one can imagine. They are filling, nutritious, and always gluten-free.
