My first grain-free Christmas

My first grain-free Christmas

 

This was our first Christmas season….and so far it has been a pleasant, far from excruciatingly painful, experience. I wanted to share what we had, and encourage you that even ‘untouchable’ traditions can be reworked and even replaced as needed. We were hesitant to travel being on such a restrictive diet, but with some organization and flexibility from our families, it has worked great!

 

 

Christmas dinner #1:

Dinner: roasted turkey, faux mashed cheesy potatoes (cauliflower), broccoli, and spaghetti squash with homemade marinara

Appetizer: Italian sausage balls with sauce, veggies with yogurt-herb dip, cheese and seed crackers and ground-beef jerky

Dessert: grain/sugar free cookies and homemade cinnamon applesauce

 

 

Grain-free Almond Roca Cookies

 

Christmas dinner #2:

Dinner: Rosemary & butternut squash gnocchi with homemade red sauce, steak filet, faux sweet potato casserole with pecan crunch

Appetizer: antipasto, shrimp, banana-blueberry coffee cake, vanilla bean kombucha with pomegranates

Dessert: grain/sugar free cookies, peppermint marshmallows, spiced eggnog and pumpkin muffins

 

 

Antipasto (Italian salad, omit garbanzo beans and use natural meats for GAPS)

 

 

Pomegranate sprinkled-vanilla bean kombucha

 

 

Rosemary butternut squash gnocchi

 

 

Homemade tomato sauce

 

 

Delicious, rich, satisfying grain-free Christmas dinner!

 

 

Merry Christmas!

what had been told them about this child,

and all who heard it were amazed at what the shepherds said to them. Luke 2:17-18
