When putting together a care package, one of the most important things (if not the most important thing) is to make it very specific to the recipients needs or situation.
(For example, a care package for her period or an IVF care package for someone getting fertility treatment).
That being said, it is very important to accommodate dietary restrictions or preferences.
Gluten free diets are no longer just for those with celiac disease.
Eliminating gluten has been shown to reduce chronic inflammation and is often part of an elimination diet.
(FYI: An elimination diet is when you eliminate certain groups of foods and then over time, slowly reintroduce them to see which ones you have sensitivities or symptoms to).
As someone that struggles with endometriosis, adopting a gluten free diet is often suggested to me for getting rid of endo belly and reducing pain.
This all means that you are more likely to find yourself in a situation where you need to make a gluten free care package.
If you’re in that situation now, I’ve got some great ideas for you.
