Does someone in your household live with a gluten allergy, wheat sensitivity or Celiac Disease?!?! We understand that feeding a family where different allergies exist can be quite difficult, but we're here to help you find ways to make it easier! Join us for this gluten-free fair to taste lots of different recipes and meet lots of vendors who offer gluten-free products here at Whole Foods Market in Durham. Bring along those with allergies so they can try before you buy to make sure they will like it! Take home recipe cards and feel good about gaining new ideas for how to feed those in your family who can't eat gluten. And we’re always excited to host the kind folks from the Whole Foods Market Gluten-Free Bakehouse as they offer many of their tasty gluten-free baked goods that are out of this world!
I understand Lee Tobin will be on hand. He is the fellow behind all the delicious gluten free bakehouse products in the frozen section at Whole Foods. I'm also hoping to be available for part of the afternoon, to spread the word about the Gluten Free Durham Blog and Gluten Free Guidance Consulting. See you there!
See the Durham Whole Foods website for more information.

Elisabeth who suffers from Celiac Disease herself has been using her celebrity status to do a great job of spreading the news on Celiac Disease and Gluten Free Diets. I have read several reviews of the book and would like to share a statement and concern put forth by Elaine Monarch, founder and executive director of the Celiac Disease Foundation, she writes:
I am writing to call your attention to the current publicity surrounding the new book, The G-free Diet, A Gluten-Free Survival Guide by Elisabeth Hassselbeck, co-host of The View. While it is important to call attention to celiac disease, the information must be accurate - the inaccuracies in this book are potentially dangerous and detrimental to celiacs and to those yet to be diagnosed if people self diagnose and start eating GF. Our mission is to assist in getting people accurately diagnosed and the message in this book could defeat this mission. It appears that this book is being marketed as a fitness diet - eat g-free and feel so much better. Celiac is incorrectly referred to as an allergy not an autoimmune disease.
The GF diet is the medically mediated prescription that controls the condition for a diagnosed celiac. Several items in the book are misleading and inaccurate and place further limitations on the GF diet. The gluten-free lifestyle is a lifelong commitment for the diagnosed celiac, not an option, not a fad diet - adhering to the GF lifestyle requires patience and persistence. This lifestyle can not be trivialized.
Founder & Executive Director
Celiac Disease Foundation
While a gluten free diet can be a very healthy diet, eliminating whole grains and other foods for those individuals that do not have Celiac Disease, a diagnosed wheat allergy or true gluten sensitivity is not necessarily a healthy life style option. Before heading down the gluten free fad diet road, those with concerns that they may have Celiac Disease should seek appropriate medical testing.
