Gluten-Free Diet 101
An expert describes the challenges of the gluten-free lifestyle in an exclusive video from the 2014 Gluten-Free Food Allergy Fest in San Diego.
[Updated May 14, 2015]
Anne Lee is the nutritional director at Dr. Schär, a gluten-free food product manufacturer located in Lyndhurst, New Jersey. Anne recently attended the Gluten Free Food Allergy Fest in San Diego, sponsored by Living Without’s Gluten Free & More Magazine. A nutritionist by training, Lee gave a talk that broke down the often overwhelming concepts behind a gluten-free lifestyle, one that can seem so challenging to practitioners—particularly the newly diagnosed.
"It's one thing to know the nuts and bolts of the diet," she told the audience, "but we need to live it, breathe it, and make it work in our daily lives."
Her talk addressed the size of the market, the core principal of gluten-free (it’s all about the grains) and offered well-researched data to support the idea of switching to so-called “ancient grains.” Lee also discussed in clear, often humorous terms how you should deal with restaurant dining and travel.
Lee’s lecture also offered very compelling reasons for incorporating balance in your diet, with an emphasis on colorful vegetables, fruits and fish.
We hope you enjoy her talk, brought to you here by Gluten Free & More. Watch for information on our upcoming Gluten Free Food Allergy Fest in Indianapolis and in Portland, Oregon. We had a great kickoff in San Diego and we’re looking for a repeat.
