Some Updates

I'm just getting back into the swing of things after going on vacation last week. I wrote some posts ahead of time and scheduled them to publish while I was gone so you probably didn't even notice! I took a trip to Atlantis in the Bahamas and will have a full review of their Gluten Free food options in an upcoming post. Overall, it was a pretty good trip without too much Gluten worry. Atlantis has gone through the NFCA GREAT program!

Also, I have passed the 1 year milestone of my first visit to a doctor for not feeling well which eventually turned into a Celiac diagnosis. I visited my mom on Mother's day last year and she noted how skinny I was - she brought out a scale and I weighed myself only to realize I was about 30 pounds below normal. The weight loss was so gradual that I hadn't really noticed. I don't normally weigh myself either. I'm glad my mom was there to look out for me and help me on my way to feeling better - thanks mom!

Reminder - this is the last full week to sign up for the Gluten Free Raleigh Run/Walk Fundraiser to benefit Gluten Free Week at Camp Kanata. The cutoff to register is next Tuesday, May 26th. If you are interested in signing up, please click here for more information. The link contains information about doing a "fundraising only" option if you cannot participate in the run/walk but would still like to donate to a good cause. I've had several folks sign up this way so far since they will be out of town during the race. At this point, we have raised $240 - about half the goal I initially set of $500. Keep in mind that the camp uses about $500 of Gluten Free food per day! We need only 13 more people to sign up to reach our goal! In addition, Team Gluten Free Raleigh has raised $330 for the Komen Breast Cancer Race for the Cure Event - great job everyone!

Lastly, I should have some great news this week or next about the scope of the Gluten Free North Carolina concept growing in Greenville, Rocky Mount, Fayetteville, Asheville, Wilmington and Winston-Salem. More to come on this and thanks to those of you who have volunteered to do Gluten Free goodness for your city!

I'll have some more Gluten Free posts soon as I get back into the swing of things after my vacation- stay tuned. As always, there is a so much going on in the Gluten Free world.
