Gluten-Free Holiday Eats
Here are some great holiday tips from Sarah of Sarah in the Kitchen. Be sure to visit her blog for even more holiday and gluten-free entertaining tips.

Gluten sensitivities can put a damper on holiday get-togethers for folks new to the gluten-free diet and even for us veterans! With a little bit of planning, your gluten-free holiday season can go off without a hitch.

Here’s seven lucky tips for you to follow:

1. Let your host know that you can’t have gluten and offer to bring a dish. This guarantees that you can safely eat at least one dish at the party.

2. Before you head out the door, eat something. If you don’t go hungry you’ll be less likely to drool over those off-limit sweets.

3. Pack an emergency stash. Worst-case scenario, you won’t be able to eat anything at the party BUT you’ll have gluten-free crackers or something to nibble while mingling.

4. Your host’s intentions might be good but, when in doubt, don’t eat it. Unless you are 100% sure the dish is gluten-free, it’s totally okay to ask to see packaging or check an ingredient list.

5. Be aware of cross-contamination. The dish might be gluten-free but someone might have glutened it. Ask your host to label the dish and remind party-goers that pretzels or crackers are not welcomed.

6. Host your own party and make it gluten-free. Give a list of safe foods and get some peace of mind knowing that all party foods are safe.

7. Focus on family and friends. Try not to dwell on what you can’t eat but instead the fun!
