- Dinner Suggestions
It’s dinner time and you may have family members with multiple needs. Some may not have food intolerances or be on gluten-free and/or dairy-free diets. Does this mean that you have to make multiple meals? We would say a resounding NO! Each of you must decide what works best for your particular family situation. However, it is possible to please non-gluten-free people with gluten-free meals. Some of the challenges with encouraging allergy-free family members to eats our special foods, may arise from our own past complaints regarding the taste and quality of the special meals. It might be a good idea to just cook and not mention what the ingredients.Some product substitutions to remember:
