Upcoming Gluten Classes at The Life Long Learning Center at Athens State University
Gluten Free Living classes will begin on Wednesday January 25, 2017 from 8:30-10am as part of the Healthy Eating Series at the Life Long Learning Center.
Living Gluten Free, January 25, 2017: 8am-11:30am. Being told by a doctor that you or a member of your household has to avoid gluten can feel overwhelming! This class is specifically designed to help you understand the challenges you face and how to overcome them. You will learn about eating out, cross contamination in your home and get some general information that will get you on a path to better health.
This class is not just for those who are trying to live gluten free. It is also for those who have friend or family members that are trying to avoid gluten. The information that you will receive will help you be more supportive and informed.
Gluten Free on a Budget February 8 11:30 am to 1 pm. A light lunch will be served. Converting to a gluten free diet may seem overwhelming. This class will teach you that it does not have to be overly expensive, time consuming or challenging. Learning how to find gluten in the ingredient panels and how to use the products currently in the marketplace can be essential to your health.
Shopping Gluten Free February 25. This class will be done in a local grocery store. We will shop the isles together and look at the ingredient panels identifying potential problems. We will also look at safe foods to replace some of your favorite foods you can no longer have. There is gluten lurking in places you would not expect. I will help you navigate the gluten land mines on the grocery store shelves.
