Perhaps one of the biggest challenges of being gluten-free is finding enough gluten-free fast food recipes to keep you feeling satisfied. When you’re not prepared, it’s all too easy to slip back into bad habits, reaching for convenience instead of doing what you know is right for your body. Following the gluten-free diet means that you need to take a bit more care in food preparation. You can’t always rely on ready-to-eat foods. Of course, boredom can be another big challenge.
42. Paleo Fried Pickles

Fried pickles originated in Arkansas, but they’ve now become popular all over. If you’ve never tried them, you’re in for a yummy surprise. The pickles must be battered, then fried, and traditional fried pickle recipes would use wheat-based flours, but this provides a gluten-free alternative. Almond meal and tapioca starch give it a good crunch. The real key to enjoying these is to get the right batter-to-pickle ratio. Some people might prefer using pickle spears, which will have a juicy center. Others prefer thinly-sliced pickles for more crunch. For best results, dip these in a spicy mayonnaise.
