The Best Of Gluten Free Awards

I was recently contacted by Triumph Dining to get the word out to readers about The Best of Gluten Free Awards. This is a project where readers can vote for their favorite gluten free foods in various categories. Triumph Dining is offering a FREE 5-pack of American Dining Cards to the first 2000 voters. Details from the email I received state:
We’re launching the first-annual Best of Gluten-Free Awards to select the best gluten-free products on the market and to thank the companies that provide them. And we’d like you and your readers to pick the winners. Not only will you get to honor your favorite brands and products, but we’ll also give the first 2,000 voters a chance to sign up for our newsletter and get a FREE five-pack of American Dining Cards (worth $11!). The dining cards are completely free to anyone with a US shipping address, just for completing the survey (we’re even covering shipping).

Navigating the Gluten Free Diet with Confidence- lecture at UNC Wellness Center

Please consider joining me for a learning opportunity on Monday, November 8,2010 6:30-8:00pm at the UNC Wellness Center, Meadowmont This is a free event to members and non-members of the wellness center but pre-registration is required call 919-966-5500.
As a dietitian I have given a variety of "diet instructions" to clients over the years. It has been my own diagnosis with Celiac Disease and then later helping my teenage daughter navigate this in her own life that has really given me the expertise to speak about the many facets of the gluten free diet. Using my professional education and life experience I have had the opportunity to train other health care providers, speak to community groups, and serve as the camp dietitan at gluten free week/Camp Kanata for 4 years. I am looking forward to returning to the UNC wellness center to share my passion for following a healthy gluten free lifestyle!
