What is gluten? Gluten is a protein found in many common grains....such as wheat, rye & barley. While these grains have been eaten for centuries, there are more and more people finding out that their bodies cannot digest this protein. Individuals can simply have a sensitivity to gluten, while others can have a more serious condition called Celiacs Disease. Celiacs disease is when an auto-immune response is triggered inside the body of the person who cannot digest the gluten. If not treated (by taking gluten out of the diet) it can lead to auto-immune thyroid condition, diabetes and more.
When first diagnosed with Celiacs people often focus on all the foods they cannot eat! During this cooking class we will be showing you how easy it is to have a gluten free kitchen and create delicious, balanced meals that you enjoy just as much, if not more than the gluten dishes you are used to.
