The holiday time is upon us and with that comes meal preparation for a variety of palates, preferences, and specialty diets, such as vegetarian, vegan, gluten-free, Paleo, Keto, raw, etc. I've always struggled with this time of year due to my own dietary restrictions, both from food allergies and sensitivities, as well as personal dietary choices. I've definitely done my fair share of bouncing between dietary regimes and through this process I've discovered that sticking 100% to one “label” isn't always the way to go. (This is not meant to discourage those who are completely devoted to their diet of choice – if it works for you, then go for it!).
