It has been really hard for me to get excited for Thanksgiving dinner since going gluten free. This year I am determined to make the Holidays a true delight. Focusing of the people and making safe food for us all to enjoy. I am in planning mode and wanted to help those of you who are feeling lost, hopeless and need help finding joy!
I created an episode that dissects a lot of the negative feelings those with food restrictions face around the holidays. If you have been feeling down, isolated, depressed or just not looking forward to the holidays in fear of food- this episode is for YOU! This episode is also for those of us who have been gluten free for years but just need a good pep talk before being surrounded by tons of family... and GLUTEN!
I love a good halmark movie Theres that there is a problem- it gets resolved and they end with a perfect Christmas morning… but lets face it- that just isn’t all of our realities… and that is 1000% okay. But Listen to the episode to give you the inspiration you need to create a happy and safe gluten free Holidays!
