Gluten-free lunches to have in hot weather

Hold up! Are you fed up of your gluten-free lunches?

It’s not like you really fancy a jacket spud in this weather. I mean, it's been nearly 40 degrees Celsius some days. Are we really living in the UK?!

When it's hot, we coeliacs tend to have even fewer options. So here are 7 different ideas for you to try that won't make you feel you're missing out.

Don't worry: my t-shirt doesn't actually go around advertising this.

1. Chicken kebabs from Waitrose with caprese and fresh salad.

Yes, you do spy some gluten-free bread in the corner! That's from Waitrose, too.

2. Frittata from Lidl with fresh avocado and ham salad.

I didn't quite style this one but I promise the frittata is delicious!

3. Ham & cheese toasties using Genius triple-seeded bread.

I love making gluten-free toasties. LOVE them! So worth the 4 minute warm-up wait.

4. Sushi from Tesco and salad.

Tesco is the only supermarket at the moment that uses gluten-free soy sauce. So thankful!

5. Pastry toasties using Jus-Rol gluten-free pastry (yes – pastry can go in your toastie-maker!).

I said I loved toasties. Well I really love pastry toasties! These are made using gluten-free pastry from Jus-Rol.

6. Fresh goats’ cheese g-f muffins with sliced cold chicken and salad. Plus my fave carrot sticks!

Gluten-free muffins are super-quick to make. Let me know if you want a recipe!

7. Burger & chips with a bun. No, seriously! I got this from the amazing Tea Terrace in Guildford (they’re a chain so you can find them in other places, too). They had really good gluten-free burger buns, knew all about avoiding cross-contact and used a separate fryer.

There's something about a burger & chips in hot weather. Yummmmmm!

In hot weather I can't face doing much so many of these meals are either a quick blast in a toastie-maker or fresh from a packet (like the kebabs).

But if you can get up early to avoid the heat then making a batch of muffins is a lot easier. These obviously take a bit more time than just grabbing a pack of sushi from Tesco but they were sooo good!

The question is, which will you try first? Let me know!
