Happy National Celiac Awareness Day! Today's a great day to remember to educate someone new about celiac disease and the need for more testing of the huge numbers of undiagnosed people who may suffering some of the myriad symptoms of the disease. Check out the Celiac Disease Foundation for more information about celiac, the gluten-free diet, and the latest in medical research. This link will also clue you in to 80+ gluten-free lifestyle, recipe and parenting blogs that focus on La Vida Gluten-Free from regular folks around the world.
I also wanted to let Capital District residents know that our own Rensselaer County gluten-free author, Elizabeth Barbone, will be signing copies of her book, "Easy Gluten-Free Baking" at It's Only Natural, a health food store in Albany's Stuyvesant Plaza, on Saturday, September 27th, from 11 am to 1 pm. I bought a copy of this book when I first met Elizabeth at a celiac support group meeting in Glens Falls and it is the most bespattered gluten-free cookbook I own. Lots of everyday baked goods recipes with very clear instructions and the best Lemon Bar recipe ever! Jeanne and MaryAnna from Saratoga Gluten Free Goods will also be on hand at this book signing to serve refreshments, so don't miss out.
