1,700 Calorie Gluten-Free Meal Plan

A 1,700 calorie gluten-free diet, carefully planned, can promote healthy eating habits for individuals aiming for weight loss. Be mindful that calorie needs vary, hence caloric intake should align with personal goals and lifestyle.

Who should try this diet?

If you’re focused on losing weight, a diet that aims for an average of 1,700 calories can be a highly effective approach. This calorie level provides ample energy to support your daily activities and exercise routines, while creating enough of a caloric deficit to encourage weight loss.

Of course, this amount of calories should only be followed by individuals with a moderate level of activity.

However! It’s important to keep in mind that everyone’s calorie requirements are unique. Therefore, determining the appropriate daily calorie intake based on your specific goals, whether it be losing fat, building muscle, or adopting a healthy lifestyle, is paramount for success.

If following this style of meal plan creates unwanted weight loss, it may be necessary to increase total calories consumed accordingly.

120 grams Chicken Breast
2 tsp Olive Oil
1/4 Cucumber
1/2 medium Red Bell Pepper
1/4 medium Red Onion
4 Cherry Tomatoes
1 pinch Chili Powder
1 pinch Cumin Powder
1 pinch Ground Coriander (cilantro)
50 grams Quinoa
90 ml Vegetable Stock/Broth


Step 1: Preheat your oven to 200°C/fan 180°C (390°F). It’s gonna be hot in there!

Step 2: Let’s get that chicken prepped! Give it a good pat dry with some kitchen paper.

Step 3: Time to get spicy! Mix all spices and half the olive oil in a bowl. Let the chicken take a dip in this delicious marinade for 15 minutes. Let it soak up those flavors!

Step 4: While the chicken is getting cozy in its marinade, let’s work on the quinoa. Cook it up in some vegetable stock according to the pack instructions. We’re following the rules here!

Step 5: Once cooked, let the quinoa cool down a bit. We don’t want it to be too hot to handle.

Step 6: Heat up the remaining oil in a frying pan. Let’s give that chicken a nice sear, turning it around for about 5 minutes.

Step 7: Time to transfer that chicken to the big stage! Put it on a baking tray and let it cook through in the oven for 10-12 minutes.

Step 8: While the chicken is strutting its stuff in the oven, let’s get back to the quinoa. In a large bowl, mix it up with some cucumber, tomato, chopped bell pepper and sliced red onion. Let’s make it colorful and full of flavor! Remove the chicken from the oven and slice up!

Step 9: Plate up the quinoa mix and top it off with those juicy roasted chicken breast slices. Finish off with a dash of parsley if you have it!

Tuck in and enjoy!
