I can only eat gluten-free. If I sign on, will I be able to get only gluten-free meal selections?

Jordan Schultz says:

While we don’t offer a Gluten Free plan, we do try to include 2-3 Gluten Free meals per week. All of GF recipes are clearly marked as such, and you’ll have access to this information as well as the full recipe itself even before checkout. Otherwise, substituting and omitting is super easy, as everything is packaged and labeled separately. You’ll also see a full ingredients list and nutritional breakdown for each recipe on our website before you choose your meals.
