If you are just starting out on a gluten-free diet or just discovered you have celiac disease, shopping and reading labels can be stressful and time consuming. Then when it comes to actually cooking your first gluten-free meal or making sure your kitchen is clean from cross contamination, you might just want to give up.
Our advice is to not give up! Instead, take Valley Natural Foods’ Gluten-Free Basics class on March 8 with instructors, Shawn Binkowski and Sandra Calcutt! In this class you will have the unique opportunity to learn from our instructors’ over 20 years of combined gluten-free cooking experience! From years of trying many gluten-free items, they will give you their recommendations for the best gluten-free staples to have in your pantry. They will also provide tips on how to organize a gluten-free kitchen to prevent cross contamination, along with introducing you to their favorite cookbooks, resources and websites for making the gluten-free lifestyle easier.
Meet Shawn and Sandra at our education kiosk (located just beyond our produce department) on February 28th from 12pm-2pm to try some gluten-free goodies and to learn more about this class.
There are many ways to register for this class! Pre-registration is required at least 32 hours in advance. Register online, in-store, or over the phone by calling 952-891-1212 ext. 221. View our entire Education at the Co-op class schedule through May 2012.
