Christmas Tips

Here's some tips to help you through the Christmas season with a minimum of fuss!

Always be prepared - Make sure you have an extra special gluten free 'stash' in the pantry and fridge. If you're invited out, you can take something delicious to share! 
Be careful of cross contamination - If you’re helping out with party catering, think about setting up a separate gluten free section away from the ‘regular’ food and make sure it’s clearly labelled. If it's a small group of family or friends then explain how common cross contamination occurs (eg. regular crackers dipped into a dip makes the dip off limits to you, etc.). Hopefully they'll understand and be mindful. 
Don’t be afraid to ask - Attending a Christmas Party or work break-up? Plan ahead by contacting the restaurant or host about gluten free options. It's too late on the night to ask, and most people are quite open to providing gluten free food when they have plenty of notice.
Know your gluten free substitutes - There's some easy swaps for the Christmas table. For example, leftover gluten free bread made into crumbs for stuffing, corn flour to thicken gravy, gluten free cake for trifles, gluten free biscuits for cheesecake bases and unbaked slices, etc.
