“What’s for dinner?” Now there’s an easy way to plan and prepare meals without gluten, a protein that is problematic for about 25 million Americans. The service is a weekly, online recipe and meal planning service called GfreeCuisine that helps gluten-free families plan and prepare safe, healthy meals.
“There is no cure for gluten intolerance,” says Carol Fenster, who specializes in gluten-free cooking. “Eating gluten-free food is the only treatment, so knowing what to eat and how to prepare it is important for gluten-free families.”
Although Fenster is known for her nine award-winning, hard-copy cookbooks, she says this online service is all about convenience. “Gfreecuisine caters to customers who are comfortable with computers and accustomed to receiving information that way,” she says, “and they also prefer to have someone plan their nightly meals for them, are open to trying new recipes on a regular basis, and like guidance on what to buy at the grocery store, including which brand names are gluten-free.”
How does it work? For $10 a month, subscribers receive a list of 10 dinners with side dishes each Thursday. They choose up to five dinners and automatically receive recipes and the grocery list, organized by sections of the grocery store to make shopping as efficient as possible. And Fenster adds, “The organized grocery list cuts down on impulse shopping and repeat trips to the store.”
When it’s time to cook, subscribers can either print the recipe or read it on a laptop or an iPad propped up on the kitchen counter. Some families assemble the printed recipes from each week in a binder that essentially becomes their own customized cookbook.
The service also offers at least three meatless meals each week for those who follow a plant-based diet and dairy substitutions are suggested for dairy-sensitive subscribers.
Beyond the dinners and side dishes, subscribers can also access recipes for cakes, pies, bars, or cookies at any time. Or, yeast breads, quick breads, muffins, and pizza”¦”¦foods that are particularly appealing to gluten-free families since they are usually made with wheat flour, the main source of gluten. The GFreeCuisine site also offers advice on setting up a gluten-free pantry and healthy lunch and snack ideas. Plus, each month the site offers a set of seven dishes that can be prepared ahead and then frozen for those who like the convenience of having ready-to-cook meals in the freezer.
Throughout the year, GfreeCuisine offers seasonally-related party menus, recipes, and decorating themes. For example, a recent “White Christmas” theme featured all-white decorations with predominantly white holiday treats; a summer party featured recipes that tied in with a kid-appropriate movie, complete with how to set up an outdoor theater.
“GfreeCuisine is an innovative way to make sure families know what they can safely eat on a gluten-free diet and get help in planning and preparing those meals,” says Fenster. To try the service for a week, visit http://www.Gfreecuisine.com and enter “trial” in the “redeem a voucher” box.
