Pamela’s Products is partnering with the Gluten Intolerance Group (GIG) to conduct a Gluten-Free Challenge that will coincide with gluten-free awareness month in May. To raise awareness for celiac disease and gluten sensitivity, the public is invited to eat completely gluten-free for the entire weekend of May 22-23. Participants can register for the challenge beginning April 1, 2009.
Registrants will receive a daily ‘Tip of the Day’ and ‘Recipe of the Day’ email to encourage daily experimenting during May and to prepare for the Gluten-free Challenge weekend. As a bonus, Pamela’s Products and GIG are encouraging participants to visit participating restaurants in the gluten-free “Chef to Plate” program.
Having been on the gluten-free diet for almost 13 years, this challenge can really help friends and family understand that gluten-free food is actually good, is prevalent and isn’t depriving. Since food is what brings us all together this challenge offers a prime opportunity for education, fellowship and experimentation.
Thank you to Pamela’s and the Gluten Intolerance Group for putting this challenge together. How many of you out there will accept the challenge?
