We all know what it's like to be in a non-gluten-free kitchen: whether it's you or someone you know that is on a gluten-free diet, being in a kitchen that is not gluten free can be an uneasy experience. Maybe you share a kitchen with someone who does not eat gluten free. Maybe you're having non-gluten-free friends over or going to a party at a non-gluten-free house. Just in time for the holidays, here's a video from Marie Fang about staying gluten free in a shared kitchen.

Whether it's the coming holidays or daily life, this video can help you or someone you know avoid cross-contamination in a shared kitchen!

 

Here are some helpful ideas for the holidays!

No need to worry because Atlanta has a number of gluten-free bakeries that are offering special Thanksgiving items to enhance your holiday feast.

A G-Free Thanksgiving

November 12th, 2012 by Cheryl Harris, MPH, RD, LD

It takes a little planning ahead to guarantee a great Thanksgiving. In many ways, it’s easier if you’re hosting, because you know what you can and can’t have. Most people hate to impose on their hosts, but it’s easier on you AND your host to ask beforehand than sit through a four-hour meal and watch others eat. Remember, nothing is more important that staying safe!

Turkey: Though it’s always good to check, the good news is that all plain fresh turkey is naturally gluten free. However, self-basting turkeys usually contain gluten. Most gravy packets are a problem, too. As of 2011, ALL of the companies I called did have gluten-free turkeys, except Tofurky, which has gluten. Check out my gluten-free turkey list for 2011, which has manufacturer contact info.

If you’re not hosting Thanksgiving at your house, talk to your host as soon as you can. You’ll need to talk about:

* Broth used for basting * Seasonings * Stuffing in the (more…)

Fall is here! My favorite time of year. At school we have a Starbucks on each campus I see everyone enjoying the pumpkin muffins, pumpkin coffees etc. and it drives me crazy that I can just run in and grab one of those delicious looking muffins with the cream cheese on them… (more…)

Gluten Free Pumpkin Pie Recipe

December 2nd, 2011 by Andra Banting

This is my first attempt at making any type of pie, but my mom has made this pie recipe dozens of times, so I know it's good. As with most gluten free pie crusts, you have to press the dough into the pie plate instead of rolling it out. I messed up a bit with this part because I forgot to check the depth on the bottom of the crust. It turned out way too thick... oops. Luckily, the dough tastes like a sugar cookie, so it wasn't the end of the world. Next time I will remember to check the depth with a fork before baking the crust. Other than that slight misstep, the pie turned out great. (more…)
