This book needs to become everyone's go-to guide! Whether you're a veteran to gluten free living or want to gift something to a friend who's struggling with a new diagnosis, this is a wonderful resource! Recipes, tips, tricks, shopping guides, measurement equivalents, and more!
As I mentioned above, Gluten-Free on a Budget is a beautiful compilation of recipes, shopping guides, tips, measurement equivalents, and ideas.
I love the breakdown of sections. The beginning of the book breaks down foods to avoid, the benefits of quality oils and fats, and your overall health. There's even a comprehensive section for Gluten-Free Basics & Celiac Disease 101.
I was of course beaming from ear-to-ear to see the Bento Box Lunches section with a HUGE shout out to KeeleyMcGuire.com (Thank you Chandice!!).
Chandice packs lunches for her little guys and wrote a wonderful section in the book with great product tips, menu ideas that are kid friendly, and resources for keeping your kiddos safe when they're on gluten-free or restricted diet.
Besides the wonderful tips and shopping guides, the book is jam packed with delicious recipes. Everything from appetizers, soups, salads, main courses, breads, desserts, and holiday traditional dishes!
No matter what your dietary restrictions, there are tons of recipes for your family! Just sub out what fits your need or if there's an item you don't like or prefer instead.
I decided to make and pack some of the Mesquite Chicken Pasta Salad for my lunch this past week! Yummmmy....
The recipe calls for gluten-free penne pasta. I used gluten-free & allergy friendly chickpea pasta to kick up the healthy another notch. It's filled with olives, peppers, diced chicken, corn, and spices. So so good!
