I just wanted to write a little follow-up to the Gluten Free 101 Class I taught recently at Rosie's Plate. The class happened back on January 23rd and was the second time it was held (first time was Oct 2009). I was very happy to see the class size jump from less than 15 to over 20! The class is basically an in-depth review of the Gluten Free Lifestyle (I don't like to call it a diet) mostly for those who are new to Celiac/GF but is also useful for more experienced folks as well. Things in the GF world are constantly changing and the class offers the very latest information.
The class hits on some key topics like; Celiac Disease/Gluten Intolerance, what exactly gluten is and how much is too much, how to update your house to be GF friendly, an interactive session on how to read food labels, gluten/non-gluten containing ingredients, grocery shopping, eating out a restaurants, GF cooking, GF medications/personal care products and all kinds of resources like health care, support groups, magazines/books and Web sites. The class is highly interactive - a great place to get your questions answered. In addition, you'll be able to sample a few Rosie's Plate products and go home with some safe new tasty food from Rosie's. A portion of the class fee is always donated to Camp Kanata's Gluten Free Week of summer camp for kids (so far the 2 classes have raised $275).
