Healthy Diet Habit Tip of the Day 
or a Recipe of the Day

A Gluten-free diet is simply one that eliminates gluten, which is a protein found in many common grains like: wheat, barley, rye and possibly oats! Oats may be okay, but can be processed on equipment that also processes wheat! It's a diet used to treat those people diagnosed with Celiac disease, which is a common disease that affects around 1 out of every 150 people! They can't tolerate gluten at all!


The month of November is Gluten Free Diet Awareness Month.
