Well, I’m definitely writing this post with sore legs and a full stomach! Yesterday Craig Pinto and The Kicking 4 Celiac Foundation teamed up with The Center for Celiac Research at the University of Maryland. The “Making Tracks For Celiacs” was the first Celiac awareness 5k held on Long Island! It’s events like this that make me feel so lucky to be involved with such a great foundation. With about 200 walkers/runners the first year was a success to say the least. I just wanted to share some new information…
I spent some time speaking with Louisa Rasmussen, a registered dietitian. She herself understands what it’s like to be living a GF lifestyle. Her concept GFreely is really great. For 25 dollars a month you will receive a package with some delicious foods. If you’re looking to eat something healthy and delicious, I highly recommend looking into this. I tried the lentil salad and it was out of this world! You can visit their http://gfreely.com/ for more information.
Next up, “Alyssa’s Gluten Free.” Alyssa Pinto also recently diagnosed with Celiac has always been a foodie. She has taken the time and effort to find the best recipes to leave you wanting more. Yesterday I had her mini-cupcakes and kept going back for more. Be sure to “like” her facebook page, because you are most definitely going to want to order some delicious treats!
Also, for those of you in the New York area, I am excited to be speaking at the R.O.C.K (Raising Our Celiac Kids) Meeting regarding attending college living a gluten free lifestyle. The meeting on June 19th will start at 7:30 PM at Plainview – Old Bethpage Library. Hope to see you there! I’m so excited to speak about how Penn State Food Services has positively impacted my life! Be sure to check out their website as well as they have great information.
