I’ve been gluten-free since the end of June. I also stopped drinking diet soda. These were health decisions that were really hard to make but were the right choices for me. In the long run I know I’m doing the right thing for my own health. But it is so, so hard.
To replace diet soda, which was my go-to lunch drink, I drink green tea. And to replace my precious bread…well, I still haven’t found a great replacement. I just don’t eat bread. This is especially hard now that everyone has decided to bring goodies to the staff room, like donuts and cranberry walnut bread.
So if you have a gluten-free friend like me, here are some gluten-free friendly holiday goodies you can take to a holiday party or staff break room:
- Brown Butter Vanilla Bean Rice Krispie Treats (thanks to the Bluest Muse for sharing the link to this recipe)
- Vist the Crave Bake Shop in Lake Oswego and buy some “you can’t believe these are gluten free” goodies.
- Salt & Straw ice cream – many of the flavors are gluten free and personally tested and approved by yours truly!
- See’s Candies are primarily gluten free. I know these aren’t homemade or local but with these flavors you can’t go wrong: scotchmallow and California brittle.
