Doing a primal thing, as described on mark's daily apple.
Today, I made stuffed bell peppers with turkey and cheese.

I don't like a lot of 'creams' or salad dressings. Eww.

Aside from having a huge bowl of lunch meat, I'm a bit lost as to what to do, that isn't going to take ages to prep.

no wheat,
no refined sugar.... basic rules.

stir fry (chicken/sea food)
chicken salad
stuffed mushrooms
soups/stews

i made a good one the other day, grilled chicken breast topped with beef chilli and cheese, with a few nachos for dipping. you can batch cook chilli so it reheats in a few mins, chicken takes 5 mins on george foreman grill, then another few minutes to melt cheese.
Came in around 800 cals / 90g protein overall and is easy to adjust, more chicken if you need lean protein, more cheese to increase fat!

Why don't you buy joints of beef or pork or a whole chicken and cook them over the weekend, then use them in various lunches. You could make a salad with guacamole on top instead of salad dressing. I'm sure paleolithic man ate guac. You could also use it to make stir-fry or soup or chili. You might have to spend an hour or two cooking on Sunday, but it will simplify your week. Also, veggie frittatas are great. Sweet potato and chorizo is my favorite type, but I think SP is on your not-allowed list.

with bacon!! love

Really though, pick some well-marbled meat, a side of veggies with butter or coconut oil, add some macadamias if you need. Might hit the 700 (I don't generally eat that much for lunch but I can get close to 600). Add some hard-boiled eggs. You can make all this ahead of time and re-heat (not the eggs, maybe). Make a roast in the crock pot ahead of time. I make all my protein and veggies ahead and eat leftovers.

edamame
boiled eggs
majadra (lentils/rice with cumin and onion -- beans/rice combo is balanced in amino acids for protein)
chick peas (or humous)
peanuts
yoghurt

These are all vege ideas that are wheat free (I have not been careful to look up gluten content so if that's a problem you need to check on the lentils and beans -- it always surprises me what has gluten in it)

Note: nuts, soy, eggs, yoghurt have high fat in addition to protein,
beans, peas, rice have carbs in addition to protein.

Steak salad. Blue cheese crumbles, bacon. avocado, real blue cheese dressing (I have one that's 160 calories a serving). If you like blue cheese. If not use cheddar cheese and ranch.

Tuna bake rocks ... Tuna with veggies and sour cream topped with cheese, stick in oven to brown off ... Make in bulk, spice up to taste.

Grok on :)

Are you looking to avoid just Wheat or Gluten all together? If you're avoiding Gluten, stray away from Blue Cheese. I can't remember if it's the cheese or the process but gluten ends up [little amounts] in Blue Cheese.

Fajita wraps in lettuce with veggies and avocado.
Make a big pot of beanless chili or stew and portion it out in containers for lunch
Chef salads - egg, deli meats, cheese

Tuna quiche, no joke. Instead of using normal crust, line muffin pans with broken solid white albacore (or any other cooked fish) and drop a scrambled, salted, and peppered egg into each basin, then bake for ~20 minutes until the egg is fully cooked.

I too suggest lettuce wraps. I like thai chicken ones (lettuce, cooked left over chicken, chopped carrots, chopped peanuts, sliced red peppers, a small smear of natural PB (or just stick w/ the peanuts), and a line or 3 of Siracha hot sauce).

Also - I went dairy free for a while (helped hubby lose 1.5# a day and feel tons better - he was allergic to it as a child), but didn't do anything for me, so I'm hoping to drop the rest of the wheat out of my diet and go more paleo soon (but I love beans... that will be a hard break-up).

How about apples, pecans, walnuts, baby spnach & lettuce, chicken/steak, berries of some sort, other veggies as perferred, and a tiny bit of vinagrette (infused olive oil and raspberry vinigar perhaps)?

Additionally - have you checked out The Wheat Belly cookbook? May have exerpts on-line, but check your local library.

Steak, leftover potroast, if you are allowed eggs, boiled eggs are always good and easy, if not, yeah, ribeye!

I think it's if the cheese (any type, not just blue) that is made with vegetable rennet, can be contaminated. But most don't say which it was made with (animal vs veg rennet).

tuna w/egg in it - eat with celery or cucumber... add nice size of veggies or salad.. plus a handful of nuts for a treat! =)

you can omit the tuna and do it with chicken breast as well.. its what my new kick is!
