My husband and I were invited for a pre-holiday family dinner at our friends home last night, and I was so impressed with the delicious food and care that went into preparing our meals.
We arrived to a gluten-free and toddler friendly dinner that started with dates stuffed with goat cheese and wrapped in bacon (well, the 3 year old didn't want to try this one) and then followed with baked chicken breast, mashed sweet potatoes and broccoli. And that wasn't all of it! Our hostess even made an amazing chocolate mousse topped with whipped cream and fresh raspberries for dessert. It was a perfect dinner.
When I expressed my gratitude for an amazing and safe meal, she said that she didn't realize how many things were ACTUALLY gluten free. It was probably a meal that they would have regardless of their food challenged guests and it solidifies my belief that gluten free can be easy, is not restrictive, and is an incredibly healthy and FUN way to eat. (And it doesn't hurt to have amazing friends supporting you either!)
