Whether you are the star of the day or the individual planning the celebrations we have some ideas on how to make your Mother’s Day full of gluten-free surprises that will bring a smile to everyone’s face. Even if you don’t celebrate Mother’s Day, these are some family-friendly tips to make a day a little special.

Breakfast in bed?

Connect with nature- even if it is close to home!

Getting outside can increase your energy levels, boost mood and reduce stress! So, rain or shine, head outside and enjoy the sights and sounds that mother-nature has to offer. Going on a picnic lunch is something you can do with your immediate family – even if you just use your own backyard.

When the mom in your life has to work on Mother’s Day?

Not everyone has a chance to be off on May 9th, but you can still surprise her with a note and some gluten-free snacks or treats in her lunch! Perhaps try these GF Lemon Blueberry Muffins or Hershey Kisses Cookies.

Local Sightseeing Trip?

In some jurisdictions you can go on a family car ride and check out some of the local sites.

Window visit with Grandma?

With COVID-19 restrictions, not everyone can have a in-person visit. Dropping by where your grandmother or parents live is often a porch visit and social distancing. Pack up a decorated box with some homemade GF treats, cards from the kids and pampering items. If you want a guide on lotions and potions, check out CCA’s statement here. Try this GF recipe treat – GF Orange Chiffon Cake

Looking for new dinner inspiration?

The COVID-19 lockdowns has many of us pulling out the same thing for dinner. Coming up with new gluten-free recipes especially if you are newly-diagnosed can be challenging. It’s great to have a few new ones for special occasions like Mother’s Day.
Try some of these from our community recipes: Chicken Rice CasseroleHoney Garlic Beef and Broccoli Stir FryMediterranean Steak Bowls, and Moroccan Tagine with Chicken, Apricots and Butternut Squash

Cheers to Mom!
