The Gluten Free Garage was thrilled to bring an exciting lineup of gluten-free experts and topics to the inaugural speaker series on Sunday April 28th (free with admission to the event!). Our fantastic five speakers covered a variety of topics related to healthy gluten-free living. If you missed the opportunity to see these speakers in person or if you want to hear them again, you are in luck!
Welcome to Tuesday Talks with the Gluten Free Garage! Each Tuesday for the next two weeks, we’ll be releasing one of the audio presentations from our Spring 2013 GFG speaker series. (If you didn’t catch last week’s talk on cooking with multiple food sensitivities or allergies by Ricki Heller, click here.)
For this week’s Tuesday Talk, GROWING UP GLUTEN FREE, She Let Them Eat Cake‘s Maggie Savage dishes out tips for raising happy, healthy, awesome GF kids. A topic that’s close to my heart! With birthday parties, play dates and school lunches to plan for, raising healthy gluten-free kids can be a challenge. Add to the mix picky eaters and all the processed gluten-free products (with mile-long ingredient lists) hitting supermarket shelves daily.
Tune in for all you need to know about preparing gluten-free snacks and school lunches and discover healthier “kid-approved” gluten-free products you can find in most grocery stores. With a dash of creativity and a scoop of knowledge, you’ll have all you need to start raising happy, healthy, totally awesome gluten-free kids! And don’t worry, there’s no need to take notes! Just click here for Maggie’s tip sheet that she created for her talk (with a bonus recipe for her Superstar Chocolate Cupcakes!).

Maggie Savage writes the popular gluten-free blog She Let Them Eat Cake about her gluten-free family life. Pushed in this direction when her husband was diagnosed with celiac disease nine years ago and more recently with the shift to raise her children gluten free, Maggie debunks the myths of a gluten-free lifestyle and shows us that living gluten free is not only healthy but also yummy!
