I’m often asked by other moms how I feed my family on a gluten-free diet. I think many people assume gluten-free is limiting and includes tasteless recipes.
It’s really quite the opposite. There are SO MANY gluten-free foods and recipes.
Ever since we “went” gluten-free, I’ve had so much fun trying out new gluten-free recipes and creating my own versions. And my kids have loved helping me.
The sky is practically the limit with gluten-free, just as long as it doesn’t include wheat! =)
Here are some of our favorite kid-approved gluten-free recipes here at Living Well Mom:
