Making the switch to a gluten-free and dairy-free lifestyle is not easy. No matter why you made the switch this list Stocking Your Fridge: Gluten-Free and Dairy-Free will hopefully help you out. These are some of my personal favorites and items I buy over and over again.

When this post was written all items were gluten-free and dairy-free however always double check the labels to be sure!
Gluten-Free and Dairy-Free Refrigerated Foods
- Non-Dairy Milk- I prefer unsweetened almond milk and unsweetened soy milk. Both of these options are great for smoothies, recipes, baking, and more.
- Daiya Cheddar Style Slices make a delicious grilled cheese, sandwich or quesadilla! In most grocery stores these can be found in the produce section along with other plant-based foods.
- VioLife and Follow Your Heart Shredded Cheese can be substituted into any recipe that you love that calls for cheese. As a bonus, it melts really well.
- Trader Joe’s Cashew Queso Dip is delicious! It is made from cashews, potatoes and seasoning. Use it for taco night or with chips.
- Trader Joe’s Vegan Cream Cheese is another favorite! Not only does it taste very similar to regular cream cheese but it is about half the price of other dairy-free cream cheese options.
- Trader Joe’s Cauliflower Tabbouleh is a fun snack. Cauliflower replaces the couscous in a traditional tabbouleh recipe.
- Siete Chickpea Flour Tortillas are one of my favorite when it comes to gluten-free tortillas. They have a good texture and hold together better than some gluten-free options.
- Sweet Loren’s Cookie Dough is a delicious gluten-free and dairy-free refrigerated cookie dough. I keep these on hand for when I want to bake a couple of cookies at a time. The chocolate chunk and fudgy brownie are my favorite flavors. They also come in oatmeal cranberry and sugar cookie doughs.
- Country Crock Plant Based Butter is always on hand. I keep the sticks for baking and the tub style for other uses.
Gluten-Free and Dairy-Free Frozen Foods
- Daiya Chocolate Fudge Crunch Non-Dairy Frozen Dessert Bars are a great alternative to ice cream. They are coated in chocolate and have pumpkin seeds added for a little crunch.
- Daiya Pizza comes in many different flavors and while they are not exactly like regular pizza they are very close. These are good for a quick meal.
- Hash browns for an easy breakfast or side dish to a meal. Most should be gluten and dairy free but always check the label.
- Canyon Bakehouse Gluten-Free Bread and Bagels are great for toast or sandwiches. This can also be found with the regular bread if you prefer your bread not to be frozen.
