ONE YEAR OF GLUTEN-FREE RECIPES GIVEAWAY
What’s better than a tasty recipe? How about Twelve Tasty Recipes – and, they can be yours for FREE!
I’m very excited to share that my good friend, Diane (who’s always busy creating new recipes in The Whole Gang kitchens ), is allowing me to dish out the great news about her fabulous 2013 Cookbook Desk Calendar! This stunning desk calendar has individual cards for each month beautifully displaying the calendar, recipe, and a gorgeous full-color photograph of the meal.
When asked about why she put this calendar together, Diane had this to say, “After sharing over 500 recipes on my website since 2008 and writing my e-cookbook The Gluten-Free Diner, I wanted to be able to create something just as useful that someone could hold in their hands. I also wanted something that reflected what I hear when I work with clients as a health coach — ‘Give me something so I can have an easy, healthy, gluten-free life.’ Many families are not only cooking gluten-free but also addressing many dietary needs at once. It’s certainly that way in my house!”
That led us to discuss the growing concern of food sensitivities and the wide variety of nutritional plans shared by our clients. Diane has this covered, too. “So, this Cookbook Desk Calendar was designed with that in mind. Easy, healthy, gluten-free living with a simple way to also cook dairy-free, vegetarian, vegan and Paleo (if desired) without having to cook 5 different meals at once.”
Here’s what you’ll get with your own 2013 Cookbook Desk Calendar.
Cookbook Desk Calendar Features:
- 12 beautifully-designed cards in a clear CD case specially made to stand-up and display on your desk or countertop. (4 5/8” x 5 3/8”)

I have been gluten free for 10 years, lots of failed baking experiments in the beginning. Baking had always been how I relaxed and at first it was very frustrating. Now I love to bake and cook gluten free. I love collecting recipes so this would be a wonderful addition.
Sounds wonderful, Dana! Thanks for your great comment and I know you’ll love this delightful collection of recipes! I’ll be writing down the names from these comments and will select a winner at random. Good luck to you!
Gluten-free is the way of life for me!
That’s great, Terri! You’ll love these recipes 😉
What a great idea for putting it in this format. My biggest challenge with recipes is not having all ingredients at hand when I get time to cook. Having it on my desk will be a great reminder.
And, Sarah — I bet she has great advice on ingredients substitutions and tips to share in her great bonus hidden page! Thanks for entering!
Have been doing gluten free for the past 6 months and what a difference it is making in my health! Digestion, energy level is much better. Finally found a really good health nutrition store that carries a lot of gluten free ingredients. Even my husband is on board with me.
So glad, Renee — I know from my own experience that changing what I ate, literally changed my life. I’ve been able to heal from the inside out and have been blessed every day from it. I can only wish that for you and everyone else. Blessings to you!
We went Gluten (and Dairy) free because of my son’s Autism and concomitant digestive issues. Not only is he clearer, healthier, and happier, but my “IBS” is practically nonexistent now. My challenge is finding easy, healthy options to keep everyone, even the Glutenous family and friends, happy. This calendar looks great and would be a helpful addition to my “arsenal.”
I love what you’ve done, Debra! Isn’t it amazing how the body can heal? I’m amazed and honored to hear your story of your son’s improvements as well as your own. I know you’ll love this calendar, so thanks for entering the contest!
Learning to make subtle changes. Reading and gathering information is key –
spending lots of time reading labels, etc. and working to remove cravings.
Will you have calendars for purchase as well? The calendar with recipes looks
so inviting to try. Lifestyle changes happening daily.
Paula — the calendar is definitely available to purchase. Simply click on any of the BLUE calendar links in the post or go here for more info: http://www.thewholegang.org/2013-cookbook-desk-calendar/ Good luck!
I am new at gluten free life but already feel the benefits. My husband is on board for changing our whole family’s eating habits, which is great. But my constant struggle is planning meals! This calendar is a wonderful idea! Thank you! I also have some gluten free friends in other states and these would be a perfect Christmas gift!
Perfect gift is right, Suzanne! Your friends will be fortunate recipients. Thanks for the comment!
I read one of the comments about failed GF experiments and had to laugh…any time I mention I’m thinking about trying a new GF baking recipe, my poor husband cringes. 🙂 There have been some doozies!
Not one to give up, I continue to research, experiment and reach out to those who’ve been there, done that. My guts and my skin thank me. As does my mood/temperament, joints, etc.
My belief is it can become 2nd nature, doesn’t have to be “hard” and that’s what I want to pass on to those I work with.
Love the calendar…having 12 new (proven) recipes at ones fingertips takes “I don’t know what to make” [excuses] out of the equation!
Precisely put, Naomi! Love the attitude! Good luck with the contest!
Would love to have a calendar with gluten free & dairy free recipes!
Thanks for entering the contest, Adria!
Hi, I’ve been gluten free for about 2 months now, I’m starting to feel better, but I have been finding it increasingly difficult to afford this lifestyle and I am beginning to wonder if I should give up and go back to feeling absolutely terrible all the time for the sake of our bank account. I am already a vegetarian of 15 years now, and this stresses our grocery budget as it is. I have a housefull of meat-eating men that definitely are not on the gluten free bandwagon…4 to be exact and one other girl; on the other hand, I am already use to having to make 2 seperate dishes because I am a vegetarian. I’ve been into the “couponing” thing and working at that, but have not found it to be helpful in the gluten free diet. If anyone has any thoughts or advice, I would love to hear them.
I would love to have a copy of the recipe book, I’ve been trying many different recipes for bread and I just can not get it right, mine comes out with this absolutely horrible taste that I can not get rid of, I don’t know what ingredient is causing it. So, I have to keep buying the $5 frozen gluten free bread from the store…ugghh! Help?
Candy — I’m so very glad you’re making the effort to change the foods you bring into your household. However, what I’m hearing from you is that it’s hard, difficult, frustrating, and you’re considering abandoning your efforts. I’m very sorry to hear that. Changing the diet from foods that contain wheat/gluten (breads, pastas, cereals, crackers, snack items, processed foods) usually is quite liberating.
When we’re no longer buying expensive packaged foods, our grocery budget can go much further. Fresh produce and food staples like dried beans are very,very inexpensive. I can make meals stretch and last on very little money. I’m curious what “Type of Gluten Free” living you’re experiencing right now? I wrote a post on that a few weeks ago: http://www.rebuildingwellness.com/types-of-gluten-free-living/.
There’s absolutely no judgement here and no right or wrong. I’m hoping to point out that if you’re buying expensive gluten-free packaged foods, your dollar will stretch further as you transition to naturally gluten-free foods. There’s an ABUNDANCE of foods that naturally do not contain wheat/gluten such as veggies, quinoa, amaranth, millet, animal and /or plant proteins, etc. I wish you the best of luck in the contest and I hope mealtime becomes less of a struggle for you in the very near future.
Medical reasons has forced me to go Gluten Free.The doctor stressed in addition to change my diet I need to exercise or my medical condition would worsen. At first I thought how can I do this? What do I do? I focused on a new life style change, exercise and a a lot of prayers to make a MAJOR lifestyle change. I now surf the web for recipes, read books and health magazines. This has been an incredible journey. Wow what great benefits, how awesome I feel and the benefits of losing weight in the process. The trip to the grocery store is an adventure, selecting fruits and vegetables that provide a rainbow of colors of items I never had before, by reading labels and amazed how we are being poisoned by chemicals, preservatives and additives. Prior to this it was grab and go on my home to make dinner. My body, internal and external thanks me for going Gluten/ Dairy Free. Would love the opportunity to have a calendar of new recipes to try to add variety into meals. My family would enjoy a change too. I have a tendency to continue to make the same recipes over and over.
You’re so right, Linda! It’s amazing to see how we can feel when we’re fueled with the proper foods. I’m so proud of you for going on this journey and I wish you the very best of luck in the contest!
I’ve been wanting to go gluten free for a while, but it’s hard to retrain your way of eating and preparing meals. I’d love to have some gluten free recipes that both my husband and I could try.
Jaimee — so excited for you and look forward to hearing about your journey. Good luck with the contest!
I’m also considering going GF. I have some psoriasis on my scalp and I’m wondering if it would help. I like my grains but I’m content with brown rice and quinoa so I think I could do it.
Nina — so glad you left your comment. Yes, Psoriasis is definitely on the list of potential symptoms of food allergies/sensitivities. I wish you the best of luck in this contest and with your future endeavors!
We are mostly paleo. Sounds like a near kitchen addition!
You’re right! It would be a great addition to any home 😉 Good luck!
