12 Tips for Gluten Free Living #9: It isn’t always about the food

Don’t let not being able to eat the same foods your friends, co-workers or family eat turn you into a hermit.  Find ways to work around food so you can still attend social functions and enjoy time with those you love.

  • Attend the wedding or christening then offer your apologies for not being able to attend the dinner.
  • Take your own food to the holiday celebration or office potluck. Or show up after the meal to socialize.
  • Suggest an activity such as a movie or bowling for an evening out with friends instead of going out for pizza. Or suggest a restaurant that serves gluten free pizza.

Work out ways to spend time and celebrate with those you care about.  It isn’t always about you and it isn’t always about food.

  1. I can tell you that, as Rogene’s husband, that her ideas and recipes are great when it comes to special diets. We have several things she controls while preparing our meals and they are always delicious. That’s why I suggest you click on the bookstore button at the top of this page and buy one of her cookbooks available there. You won’t regret it. My favorite is the recipes for milk-less ice cream found in the book called “Frozen Fun.”
