Whether it is breadsticks, pizza, or fresh pasta, we Italians love gluten in all of its various forms. So when we found out our youngest daughter suffered from celiac disease, we had to rethink family meal time. Instead of serving traditional Italian meals, my wife and I started getting creative with gluten-free substitutes (think spaghetti squash, spiralized veggie noodles, and gluten-free doughs). Recently, we’ve been trying recipes from gluten free meal delivery companies, which makes meal prep a whole lot easier.
Looking for a new way to spice up your meals? Try out these meal services for delicious gluten free meals, without the hassle of visiting the grocery store or meal planning.

The classic meal plan offers three recipes per week (serving either two or four people), while the family meal plan gives you two or four recipes a week (four servings each). All recipes are organic and non-GMO, with ingredients grown in California and fish sourced in Oregon. Recent recipes include these tantalizing dishes:
- Vietnamese Steak Stir-fry with Jasmine Rice (Classic Meal Plan)
