I’m so excited for tonight’s Holistic Moms meeting on Special Diets! Going GF (and also dairy-free, soy-free, and corn-free) has made such a difference in my physical and mental health!
Cheryl Harris of Harris Whole Health will be speaking on the reasoning behind gluten-free diets, dairy-free diets, the GAPS diet, the Specific Carbohydrate Diet, and other special diets.
Not everyone needs to go gluten-free, but I continue to believe that a whole lot of people would be served well by it, or at least by limiting their intake of gluten, especially since the grains are rarely properly prepared for optimum digestion.
We have some great giveaways for member attendees of tonight’s meeting from the following folks, in addition to Cheryl, who is giving away a gluten-free class that addresses the hows in addition to the whys:
Melissa Diane Smith, author of Going Against the Grain and the new Gluten Free Throughout the Year, which she will send to one lucky winner.
Nancy Tringali Piho, author of My Two-Year-Old Eats Octopus, which she will send to one lucky winner.
Mary Rand Hess, author of The Day I Met the Nuts children’s book (about discovering and living with food allergies), which she will inscribe and send to one lucky winner.
Choices by Shawn, a restaurant in Fairfax that has gluten-free items.
Essential oil misters/sprays and a bean and grain chart from Monica Corrado of Simply Being Well.
And I’m giving away a copy of Dr. Stephen Wangen’s Healthier Without Wheat.
More details are on the Arlington/Alexandria HMN Chapter blog, but come join the fun 7-9 p.m. at AUMC, 716 S. Glebe Rd., Arlington, VA 22204.
