Rachel’s Recipe Box: The Gluten Free Family is a site designed to help families eat well while dealing with celiac disease, food allergies, food intolerances, and/or dietary restrictions.
My motto is, “this isn’t just good food for a special diet, it’s Good Food”! Why not eat well despite your dietary restrictions? We have been dairy free since 1999, and gluten free since 2003, following a gfcf diet. We have also (along our way) lived free of citrus, eggs, soy, corn, and currently berries. We always ate well, though!
Our recipes are delicious, family-friendly meals, which happen to be gluten free, dairy free, wheat free, gfcf, and berry free. Most recipes are either free of the other top allergens (peanut, nut, egg, fish, shellfish, soy, corn), or can be adapted to be free of those ingredients. Please check ingredients on anything canned or bottled – brands change formulations all the time. If we give specific brand suggestions, those products have worked for our family at the time the recipe was written – always double-check!
As you work out your own diet, check the tips category – posts there include some tips on baking without dairy or soy. You might also want to read Our Story of discovering Food Allergies, Food Intolerances, and Celiac Disease.
Many of our recipes are also Low Carb and safe for the South Beach Diet. Most non-baking recipes can be made Low Carb with minimal changes.
Additionally, all of our recipes are set up for easy printing. Please pass the recipes and this site on to other friends and family living with dietary restrictions!
