Happy Holidays Gluten-free followers! Christmas is literally right around the corner and it is time to get down to the nitty gritty! Over the past few weeks we have been talking a lot about the holiday time, staying healthy and eating gluten-free. One thing we have not mentioned however is how the holiday season is a opportune time to teach others about eating gluten-free! Eating gluten-free can be a very confusing idea for those relatives that may not understand what gluten even is SO here are a few ideas on how to help those who have not learned about YOUR gluten-free eating!
- Leave a little educational material on the coffee table! At some point over the holiday someone is bound to be looking for some reading material and will take an interest in a Gluten-free magazine!
- Cookie tasting! Make gluten-free cookies and invite over some friends to give them a try. After testing the cookies surprise your guests by explaining that all of the cookies are gluten-free!
- Looking for a conversation topic other than the latest NFL football game, politics or how cold it is outside? Why not talk about food and healthy eating! This is a great way to engage your guests and maybe set some goals with them for the New Year!
- Not eating at home this year for the holiday? Bring your gluten-free dish with you, be sure to explain to your hosts why you brought such a special dish and open the conversation to questions!
Wishing you a happy healthy gluten-free holiday!
