Just about everyone and their mama has hopped on the gluten-free train in Tinseltown, but nobody does it with quite as much flair as Nicole Richie. The 32-year-old mother of two is so serious about her diet that she's even rapped about making wheat-less spaghetti. But, that doesn't mean she won't indulge her sweet tooth from time to time.
For Christmas, Richie's baking her favorite holiday treat with a twist. Not only is she kicking the gluten from her gingerbread cookies, but she's also replacing the processed sugar with ginger, cinnamon, and molasses for sweetness. Warning: Your kids aren't gonna want to share these bad boys.
