Gluten Free/Dairy Free Once A Month Freezer Cooking
Over the two year course of this blog I have had many a reader talk about how their family is having to adapt their meals to be gluten free, dairy free or combination diet. Whether it is a diagnosis of celiac’s disease, a child on the autism spectrum, a baby who seems to do best off dairy or a host of other reasons, it seems to be a growing population. Not only in our society but for the readers of this blog as well.
Several months back I did a survey to find out which was more needed gluten free or dairy free or both. The responses were overwhelming. And divided. So after much deliberation we settled on a menu for both. The way I figure it, if you aren’t one or the other you can always make adjustments fairly easily. For instance using dairy products or adding them to recipes instead of dairy substitutes if you just need gluten free. And similar changes can be made if you need dairy free but not gluten free.
At any rate, we are introducing this menu because getting food on the table is difficult enough, meeting the special dietary needs of your family can make that even tougher. Hopefully this is the answer you have been looking for, Gluten Free/Dairy Free freezer cooking!
