The Gluten-Free Challenge

A challenge to eat gluten-free for one weekend. A challenge of solidarity.

A challenge to eat gluten-free for one weekend. A challenge of solidarity.

Sponsored by the Gluten Intolerance Group and Pamela’s Products, the Gluten-Free Challenge gives friends and family of Celiacs and others who cannot eat gluten an opportunity to learn more about their loved one’s lifestyle. The Challenge aims to rally awareness of the gluten-free diet and support for those who must adhere to it.

On May 22nd and 23rd, you can join supporters of the gluten-free diet and lifestyle by giving up gluten for one weekend. It’s a chance to show your solidarity with loved ones and to increase your understanding of what it’s like to be gluten-free.  It’s a chance for those who live a gluten-free lifestyle every day to invite your friends and family to do it with you. Cook together. Dine together. Understand one another.

No one should have to do it alone. During the Challenge, you can join your gluten-free loved one for just one weekend, knowing that hundreds of other wheat-eaters are experiencing the same challenges – and the same satisfaction of supporting and encouraging a friend. And if you always eat gluten-free, take this opportunity to get the word out – let friends know how much their participation would mean to you.

The Gluten Intolerance Group and Pamela’s Products are supporting participants in the Challenge by offering gluten-free recipes and tips on their Challenge website and via email. They’re also staging giveaways of gluten-free products, so the earlier you register, the more chances you’ll have to win.

The gluten-free lifestyle has grown so much that nearly everyone knows someone who follows a gluten-free diet. The Gluten Intolerance Group is challenging us to help expand the active network of gluten-free people and supporters to make life better for us and all of our gluten-free friends. Step up to the challenge and show your support by registering now: www.gogfchallenge.com.

  1. You say “Our goal, of course, with the Gluten-Free Challenge, is to get everyone at the table. ” Pamela’s mixes (although they are good) will not get my family to the table. You also say, “Gluten consumers and gluten-free alike, enjoying food together.” You are expecting them to learn to cook and like gluten free breads. My siblings told me they would not do this challenge if it required them to buy special food. The latest etiquette I have read is for the host to cook a meal that is naturally gluten free. Why then are we asking our families to eat gluten free breads? My family needs to see what daily life is really like. They don’t need gluten free bagels, donuts, cookies, and unhealthy food that I don’t even eat. I thought this was a good idea, until I saw the recipes you sent and now I think this is the biggest joke. I actually eat healthy and have not been impressed with any recipe you have sent.

  3. I know this is years too late but I have to say that I too worship bread in all it’s glory. It is a luxury. The artisan breads are divine but that is now reason to get negative about gluten free breads. If people cannot live without there bread for a small period of time, they may be addicted to the almighty bread. This is no reason to make other people feel like some kind of cult for not partaking in the regular bread containing gluten. Don’t eat any bread! Forgo bread for a while if the thought of gluten free bread gets you upset. Believe me. I’ve been on many diets and only now am I considering trying this out but when you exclude anything from your daily diet, you would be amazed at how delicious something new can be. I bet if you went without bread for 2 weeks, a slice of gluten free bread would be the bomb! There are plenty of foods to eat that are gluten free naturally. Try the challenge or maybe you should start with a bread free challenge first :)
