It’s almost Thanksgiving! Whether you suffer from allergies or you’re hosting a guest with allergies, holidays and other social events can be stressful. To help, we’ve created some great resources on Gerbs’ Allergy Hub, including a Guide to Hosting a Gluten-Free Thanksgiving.

 

This downloadable resource contains a sample menu (with links to recipes) as well as useful tips for hosting a safe gathering. Did you know that November is gluten-free diet awareness month?

Cooking and eating without gluten can be tricky. Thankfully, awareness of the diet has grown in recent years and consequently, there are more gluten-free products available than ever before. Gerbs entire line of products are gluten-free- and, they are adding new, delicious products to the line-up including snack mixes, bread crumbs, pumpkin seed butter and FLOUR. Just in time for the holidays!

I know all of our gluten-free friends out there are especially excited about the flour because baking can be one of the biggest challenges! We’re excited to test out the new products and will be coming up with some fun new recipes for you soon!

One Thanksgiving favorite at our house is Apple Crisp. Fortunately, with a few slight tweaks, apple crisp can easily be made gluten-free. One trick us to use Gerbs Chia Seed Powder as a thickening agent, in place of flour. Have you tried this? We absolutely LOVE using Chia Seed Powder as a thickener in recipes- and, it’s a great way to sneak in some added omega-3s, protein and fiber- a win all around! Check out our Apple-Cranberry crisp recipe below and let us know what you think!
