Not sure what to get a family member or friend who seems like they have everything? We think a food-filled hamper is a failsafe gift that’s just as fun to give as it is to receive.
The sum of a hamper is more than its parts. If you have ever been gifted one you’ll know the excitement that comes from unwrapping the box to discover all the little treats inside and then enjoying them individually over the year.
Whether you stick to a gluten-free diet or you’re cooking for someone who does, a traditional Christmas dinner with all the trimmings is actually easier than you think to make “free-from”.
There’s a lot involved in cooking a traditional Christmas roast so you don’t want to be cooking lots of different alternatives for your gluten-free guests – and you really don’t have to. Be safe in the knowledge that all guests can tuck into all dishes with just a few easy tweaks to your normal recipes.
Give it two weeks. That's what I suggest. Avoid gluten for fourteen days and see how you feel. Then, on day fifteen, have some bread and see what happens. ...

You can take control over your diet, and your life.
