Salmon Gluten-Free Dinner
I love have a gluten-free dinner that my whole family enjoys. I was the queen of white bread sandwiches with the crust cut off. Doritos. Candy. Fast food. Frozen dinners. All throughout my 20’s. As my husband started his health transformation, after our daughter was born, and I started seeing how much his nutrition made a difference, I really started finding new options. Finding staple gluten-free options is now a priority.
Now at 37, I don’t have time or the freedom to have my energy completely zapped from me with poor nutrition. I have fought the good fight to say bye-bye to fast food and that was a slow process! Our kids don’t even know what McDonald’s is. Extreme? Maybe, but we want them to have proper fuel just like we do. They ate this for dinner last night too! Meals like this used to be boring to me and now they are a blessing.
Salmon Gluten-Free Dinner Recipe
- Broiled wild salmon with Trader Joe’s garlic salt on it (7-10 minutes under a 500 degree broil).
- The topping is a recipe from ohsheglows.com
- One avocado
- 1/2 cup of cilantro
- 1-2 Tbsp lime juice
- 1/2 tsp garlic powder
- 1-2 Tbsp of water
- Food process until smooth!
So very delicious as a dip for anything! We steamed broccoli and there you have it. A wonderful, absolutely balanced gluten-free dinner that really keeps the body happy and healthy. Do not think that you aren’t making a difference when you put the right food in front of your family. Their bodies will love you for it! As the mother of the house, I really take pride in providing the best options possible, especially for my kids. So go make your gluten-free dinner and your family will love you for it!

Zucchini Noodles make an amazing gluten-free dinner!! My bestie made it for me and I not only want her cute white dishes, I could have this meal weekly. Trying new dishes with friends is amazing. My cousin, who was my maid of honor in my wedding and my best friend has lost a bunch of weight in the last few months. This is one of the main reasons why. Having things like zucchini noodles is a huge part of the process in getting healthy. Not that she can’t have normal noodles, but keeping away from carbs, that are very starchy and dense, has been key in her transformation.
You do need a spiral veggie cutter. Veggetti was what we used. $12 bucks and it’s small and easy to store. Zucchini Noodles are easy to make and can be used in tons of different dishes. My kids will eat them…which is huge! Here’s a little excerpt from Organic Facts about zucchini,
“Zucchini is well known to reduce weight, yet still boosting the nutrient value of your diet. Moreover, it helps to promote eye health, and prevents all the diseases that occur from vitamin C deficiency like scurvy, sclerosis, and easy bruising. It helps to cure asthma and has a high content of vitamin C, carbohydrates, protein and fiber. Zucchini contains significant quantities of potassium, folate, and vitamin A, all of which are important for general good health. Zucchini, when eaten regularly, can effectively lower your homocysteine levels.”
So as you can see…..add zucchini into your diet as much as possible! You can’t go wrong….now onto what we had for dinner.
- What she threw in:
- Organic marinara sauce from Trader Joe’s, heated
- Aidell’s Italian meatballs, browned
- Zucchini noodles, boiled for 2-3 min.
- Salt & Pepper
We did mix some gluten-free noodles we had made for the kids in with our zucchini noodles. It is amazing how good something can taste, even when it is not what you think it should be. Never, once when I was growing up, do I remember having zucchini noodles!

Feel free to use this for a 21 Day Fix Meal! And remember, add zucchini noodles into your meal plan as much as possible!
