Gluten free side dishes

funyunsWhat’s Thanksgiving without side-dishes? Just plain ol’ turnkey dinner, right? Fortunately, lots of side dishes are naturally gluten free, like mashed potatoes and most sweet potato recipes, and either canned or fresh cranberry sauce. Sadly, it’s our old favorites that are gluten-FULL. Read on for some GF tweaks to these classic recipes.

Green Bean Casserole

Don’t panic! You can still have your Green Bean Casserole, just substitute the cream of mushroom soup for this recipe from The Gluten Free Cooking School, or try Progresso’s Cream of Mushroom soup. Don’t use the usual French fried onions on top (they have gluten), but try Funyuns Onion Flavored Rings by Frito Lay. Yes, Funyuns, that very same snack you probably skip over in the chip aisle is gluten free and makes a great, crunchy topping. (more…)

rice_puddingRead on to find a list of calcium rich foods your doctor forgot to tell you about...

Gluten free living for those with autoimmunity can be a challenge, but what if you’re also lactose intolerant, allergic to dairy, or intolerant to caseins? How many times have you been confronted with the question or personal concern of nutrition and adequate calcium intake? This is an especially legitimate concern for children, adolescents, pregnant and lactating women, postmenopausal women, and men and women at risk for osteoporosis and other bone diseases.

Are dairy products or supplements the only answer?

Autumn is in full swing with the leaves changing and crunching beneath our feet as we take weekend jaunts to pick apples and pumpkins. Once we return home we realize, what are we going to do with all of these apples?!

apple-gorgonzola-sandwichEating them plain is an excellent treat, especially the early season Honey Crisp apples, but sometimes it is necessary to get more creative and break the routine. This recipe was originally found in Southern Living, and has become a fall favorite of mine. It was not originally printed as a "gluten-free" recipe, but easily became one with a couple of modifications. This sandwich quickly becomes a satisfying and impressive meal. (more…)
