Food-focused holidays can seem scary for those with limited diets and for the family members of someone with food allergies, intolerances or dietary preferences. Whether you are gluten intolerant or cooking for someone that is, for the holidays, you will want to put some thought and effort into making it safe, comfortable and still delicious. Luckily, being gluten free for the holidays or supporting someone that is can be easy, healthy and tasty! During the workshop you will learn how to: 1) Avoid gluten cross-contamination during the holidays, 2) Communicate your needs and feel emotionally secure during food-focused holidays and 3) Remake some traditional holiday foods to be more healthy for everyone, while also being gluten free. The workshop will be followed by a Store Tour to illuminate, aisle by aisle, the myriad of gluten free ingredients that will be perfect for your holiday needs. Bring your questions as the workshop and tour is led by Katie Bauer, Founding Director of Nourished Health Center and certified as a Nutrition Therapist, Clinical Herbalist and Healing Foods Chef. Katie specializes in restoring digestive health, pinpointing food intolerances and eliminating fatigue. http://www.nourishedhealth.com/gf/
