Gluten Free “Must-Have” Products for the Fall/Winter Season, Intro

One of the hardest things to do when you “go gluten free” is to figure out how to make your favorite comfort foods. It gets even more challenging during the fall/winter holiday season. It feels like the months can be organized by the food treats we have to translate from gluten-laden to gluten-free.

Through the eyes of a gluten free gal in the U.S. of A.:
  • September = Back-to-school lunches and Football Season
  • October = Halloween and Oktoberfest (Beer anyone?)
  • November = Thanksgiving
  • December = Christmas, Hanukkah, Kwanzaa, Diwali, Winter Solstice (in the words of Yul Brynner, “Etcetera, etcetera, etcetera…”) and New Year’s Eve.
Add in all of the work holiday parties, family holiday parties and children’s events and it’s enough to overwhelm anyone.

But this year is different. This year there are more gluten free products on the market than have ever been available in the past. This year you can have anything you want (just about) gluten free. Yes…that begs to have a dedicated post to healthy eating, portion control and how not to binge on the gigantic box of gluten free chocolate frosted chocolate cupcakes that you found pre-made in the freezer at Whole Foods. Not that I’ve done that….

Where to start?

Throughout the entire season, I will be posting new product reviews, oldies but goodies product reviews and recipes for all occasions.

If there is anything you miss the most, can’t find or don’t know how to translate, send me an email and I’ll do my best to provide a timely solution to your most difficult gluten free food dilemma.

Happy Fall Season!

    I work at SSC Pac with your husband and he told me about your site. I have joined Team Challenge to run a half marathon in support of the Crohn's and Colitis Foundation of America. Today we had a nutrition brief after our training and one person asked about glutten free foods and I am sharing your website with the entire team. Thanks for the information! Tori
