If you’re new to eating allergy friendly or you just need some inspiration for your next meal plan, we created this 1-week gluten free dairy free meal plan for you! This meal plan is great for families, and every recipe is gluten free and dairy free without having to change the recipes!
Hey, friends! I’m super excited to share this post with you today, we’re giving you a gluten free dairy free meal plan that will last you a full week, complete with allergy friendly recipes for breakfast, lunch, dinner, and snacks.
In our food allergy Facebook group, I’ll sometimes share my family’s bi-monthly menus with the group, but those meal plans usually include other people’s recipes that I alter to fit our allergies.
What’s exciting about this 1-week gluten free dairy free meal plan is that it features recipes from The Fit Cookie that you don’t have to modify to make them gluten free and dairy free. They’re already allergy friendly!
Plus our dairy free meal plan is free, we’re not charging anything or collecting emails with it since we just want to help out families with food allergies ❤️
If this allergy friendly meal plan goes over really well with our readers, we’ll try to do more of them!
What’s covered in our gluten free dairy free meal plan
Our dairy free meal plan is set up for 1 week so you can get started easily. We’ll try to include more meal plans down the road if this is something you find helpful, so make sure to comment and let me know if you love this!
Here are a few things to note about our allergy friendly meal plan:
All the recipes we’ve included in this meal plan are not only gluten free and dairy free, but most of them are pretty healthy, too, with more natural ingredients and mostly whole foods.
We tried to include plenty of fruits and vegetables each day, as well as protein and complex carbohydrates (if you’re not eating low carb).
Several of the recipes are low carb and paleo as well, so you have the option to keep those recipes low carb or add some complex carbohydrates to them, depending on your dietary needs.
For example: we have salads listed for a lot of the lunches, but if you’d like some complex carbs with your salads for fiber, we added the option for whole grain gluten free crackers.
I can’t have beans myself so I haven’t added them to this menu or use them much in my recipes, but you can add beans and nuts to your salads if you want them and can have them.

Family friendly dinners
Nope, we don’t mean that this meal plan is rated G 😉
This dairy free meal plan is family friendly, meaning that it’s perfect for a family of 4 or more. The dinner recipes are created for 4+ people, and the recipes that are single serving (like some of the salads or smoothies) can be easily doubled or tripled to make them for multiple people.
If you’re planning this for only 1 or 2 people, you can half the dinner recipes and some of the breakfast recipes, or freeze some of the breakfast recipes (like the muffins) for later!
Also, if you made a big batch of granola bars for snacks, you can have those as snacks for a couple of days instead of changing the snacks each day. The choice is yours, you can make this meal plan fit your needs.
Everyone like different foods and flavors, so if you have different preferences or don’t like something that’s included (like fish), you can always swap any of the recipes for one of your favorite recipes.
The recipes included already cover a lot of common food allergens, but if you have other food allergies, it’s easy to make these recipes fit your needs as well by swapping some ingredients.
Allergy friendly recipes
All of the recipes included in this meal plan are gluten free and dairy free, as well as soy free. Many of the recipes are also tree nut free, peanut free, bean free, and egg free as well!
You’ll also notice that our 1 week meal plan also includes a lot of paleo, low carb, and vegan recipes. You can tweak these to fit your diet needs as well.

I’m filling the form to be able to download your pdf plans but it keeps on coming up with an error.
I’ve recently been diagnosed with coeliac disease and your meal plans are just what I need to get started.
Please can you email your plans to me.
Hi Karen! I can email you the menu and shopping list, I’ll double check what’s going on with the pdf.
Are there grocery lists available to go along with your meal plans? Thanks!
Hi Kirsten, I don’t have any grocery lists made for these yet, but that’s a great idea and something I can work on adding!
I am so happy that I found this meal plan. My Fiancé has food allergies so substituting in my own recipes is already hard enough… This page saved our dinner table! Thank you to whoever worked on this <3
You’re welcome Shea! I’m so glad you found this helpful 🙂
