Gluten Free & Jolly at the Holiday Party

By November 12, 2013 Gluten-Free Experiences

No one likes a Debbie Downer, especially during the holiday season.You’re supposed to be in the spirit, rejoicing with family and friends. Looking like a gluten-free bump on a log certainly won’t get you a kiss under the mistletoe, now will it?!

As part of the NFCA’s Gluten-Free Holiday Blogger How-Tos campaign, I put together four tips that will help you stay jolly this holiday season, no matter what food is put on the buffet.

I decided to provide a little teaser to my post on the NFCA’s site. Below you will find a summary of the four tips, with the full explanations here.

Getting Through the Holiday Party

  1. Bring your own dish – I prefer gluten-free meatballs. I eat ‘em like candy.
  2. Communicate – tell your family what’s up! It might be easier for them to provide a gluten-free dish than you think.
  3. Don’t depend on others – give your taste-buds what they want. Don’t wait for someone else to provide you with a dish that may or may not be 100-percent gluten-free.
  4. Stay positive – so what if you can’t eat like a 500-pound man at the holiday party? At least you won’t leave all bloated and sick like years past. Maybe your pants won’t be that tight come New Year’s Eve, either!

Do you agree with my tips? Which tips would you give to the gluten-free community? Comment below!
