Currently, the only treatment for celiac disease is following a strict gluten-free diet, which requires extra planning and precautions when it comes to preparing meals at home. Now, as families worldwide are spending more time at home due to COVID-19, we understand that planning more gluten-free meals can feel overwhelming. The Celiac Disease Foundation is here to help with four gluten-free meal plans guaranteed to make life easier for you and your family. If you don’t have all of the ingredients, we encourage you to get creative by substituting gluten-free ingredients you have in your pantry!
The 7-Day Meal Plan includes three meals and three snacks per day. It includes staple ingredients that many households have on hand, without needing to make a trip to the grocery store. The snacks and meals are easy and quick to make, while still being nutritionally complete and healthy. Get the 7-Day Meal Plan recipes and calendar here.

Due to the relationship between celiac disease and diabetes, we are pleased to provide a Celiac and Diabetes 5-Day Meal Plan. Designed by Celiac Disease Foundation Registered Dietitian Nutritionist, Janelle Smith, this meal plan helps those with a dual diagnosis of diabetes and celiac disease or non-celiac gluten sensitivity to eat nutritiously and safely.
