Please include a written recipe so that we don't have to start/stop the video over and over.

My 13 yr old has been told to go gluten free because of Celiac Disease. What is the best way to give her a lunch to take to school. We bought a bread maker and has started making her own bread, but what is the best way to keep her gluten free at school. Thank you Jerri

@Jerri A bread maker is a good start. Sounds like sending your gal to school with a prepackaged home-prepared lunch is going to be your best bet, along with keeping her educated about which foods her school cafeteria serves that are "Celiac friendly." Veggies and hummus are always a good bet! Our recipes section of the website offers extensive Gluten-free options for all occasions, even delicious dishes for your whole family. Hopefully, this will help set you at ease about this school year. http://www.wholefoodsmarket.com/recipes/search-results.php?specialDietTypeId=1

I would love to see a video or just a recipe for a European style GF bread~ something hearty and crusty. I hear in France they make one with Buckwheat, but can't find a similar recipe anywhere.
