Your Gluten-Free BBQ:
Set Up For Success
The 4th of July is just a few days away. Time to get your gluten-free BBQ set for success.
Eating out or at a friend’s house is typically a very concerning topic for those of us with gluten-intolerance or Celiac Disease. Stress starts to kick in and we just don’t want to go, right?
Do you ever feel this way?
Don’t let your gluten-free life hold you back! I did this for a long time at the beginning of my journey. I was holding back and missed a lot of great times because of it. As I grew more comfortable in my gluten-free life, I realized that it didn’t have to be that way.
Set yourself up for success and you will get on the right path.
Yes, it’s hard to put your trust in others when you fear eating safely. Yet, there is a time that you do need to do just that. If you cover your bases, you will be just fine.
Think ahead – Plan ahead
Plan ahead. Be a step ahead and things can run smoothly, lessening the cross-contact that we fear in our gluten-free lives.
This week as you celebrate your 4th of July Cookout or BBQ with family and friends, know that you can sit back and enjoy yourself. Plan and prepare and you will have a great time.

In the meantime, try this easy and delicious gluten-free Broccoli Slaw recipe to serve at your BBQ this week!
Gluten-Free Broccoli Slaw: Easy & Delicious
Mix up your broccoli slaw the morning of, or the night before so all the flavors blend well together.
Grab a bag of broccoli slaw already cut and ready for you at the grocery store. How easy is that?
In a medium mixing bowl add 2T olive oil, 3T vegan mayo, 1T apple cider vinegar, and 1T honey mustard. Mix well. (If you like a very creamy salad, add a bit more of the vegan mayo. We like EarthBalance)
Rinse off the broccoli slaw and add it to the dressing in the bowl. Toss well.
Chop up 1-2 apples into bite-sized pieces. Squeeze lemon over the apples and toss. This keeps them from browning and keeps them pretty in your salad. Add the apples to the broccoli mixture.
Grab a handful of dried cranberries and add them in as well. Toss all together and place in the refrigerator until ready to serve.
Before serving, sprinkle a little sea salt over the top and give it a good stir.
Perfect side dish for your gluten-free BBQ!
