Celebrities like Gwyneth Paltrow, Victoria Beckham and Chelsea Clinton are all touting the virtues of a gluten-free diet. But many folks forget that a big part of gluten-free cooking is simple, fresh, and minimally-processed ingredients. Here’s a day’s worth of delicious and nutritious recipes that also happen to be free of gluten, including a gluten-free chocolate chip cookie recipe!

A Word to the Wise
All of these recipes are gluten-free, but if you have a gluten allergy, check labels on all ingredients to make sure that a particular brand doesn’t contain gluten or wasn’t processed in a facility that also processes wheat products.

Beverage and Cocktail Tips
