Tuesday Talks with Alexandra Anca
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 over the next four 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 by Kathy Smart, click here.)
In this week’s Tuesday Talks, Gluten Free Garage guest speaker ALEXANDRA ANCA, RD, arms you with the NUTRITIONAL KNOW-HOW FOR STAYING HEALTHY ON THE GLUTEN-FREE DIET. Did you know that more than 70% of people who eat gluten free do not get their recommended daily nutritional intakes? And we’re not just talking about fibre! In this 30-minute session, Alexandra provides an overview of the nutrients typically missing from the gluten-free diet and gives you the scoop on the best food sources of these nutrients and which supplements can be used to fill in the nutritional gap when food isn’t an option.
Still craving more on this topic? Alexandra’s Complete Gluten-Free Diet & Nutrition Guide provides a wealth of information on dietary and nutritional guidelines, not to mention over 100 tantalizing recipes!
