Gluten-Free at College

I think I can safely say that all of us in the gluten-free community are grateful when a company or organization takes gluten-free dining and meals seriously. Take Virginia Tech for instance; a college that appears to be taking its food service so seriously, this year it won an Ivy Award for best foodservice operations in the industry.

The Collegiate Times reported Thursday that Virginia Tech has a program for healthy eating – called “You’re Eating Smarter” or YES.

“The YES Web site also contains access to nutritional resources online, including information about vegetarianism, special dietary needs – such as food allergies and celiac disease – eating disorders and, of course, general nutritional information.” –Collegiate Times

It is great to see colleges taking the gluten-free diet on – as well as other food and nutritional concerns.

Kraft Mac and Cheese Topping

Easy and Thrifty Gluten-Free

Have you’re ever in the shaker cheese section of the grocery store, take a peek at the Kraft Macaroni and Cheese topping that comes in a blue shaker container. It is gluten-free. If you put it on gluten-free noodles, you’ve got yourself some Kraft Cheese and (gluten-free) Macaroni for much less than you’d pay for separate boxes of gluten-free macaroni and cheese .

Gluten-free for the Holidays

If you are in the Twin Cities area, you can join me for a gluten-free class at the Linden Hills Co-op. This one will be about dealing with gluten-free concerns over the holidays. I won’t be doing any cooking, but rather talk you through the concerns that come with gluten-free eating over holidays that are so focused on food. I will include handling family when it comes to cross contamination concerns, what to look for when buying a gluten-free turkey, plus recipes for Thanksgiving, Hanukkah and Christmas. You can learn more and sign up through the Linden Hills Co-op’s website.
