Easter, like every holiday, can be celebrated gluten free with a little bit of advance preparation. Of course, almost everything we do needs a bit of planning, but these articles will make it easier:
♦ The simplest way to side step the whole gluten free Easter basket issue is to fill the basket with non-edible items. This article is called “Fifty Ways to Fill an Easter Basket“ will tell you how. Keep a copy of this article and save a few of the non-edible items you bought for Easter — they’ll come in handy on Trick-or-Treat night in October.
♦ The title of this article speaks for itself: “A Fuss-Free, Gluten-Free Easter Dinner: a memorable meal with a gluten-free dairy-free twist“.

The article is titled “Easter Weekend Doesn’t Have to be a Gluten Free Nightmare“. The important ideas in this chapter apply to any weekend — with adequate planning, no weekend visit needs to be a nightmare.
