I missed the class at our library, but I know that the cooking classes they have she just has some of the foods that she has made and gives samples of and recipes for. I wish I had made it to that one. I don't know of any other places that have something like that, even the Whole Foods. Neither place has anything that a person could do the cooking at. The new Natural Foods might. I would like to be able to go to something like that so that I can learn how to substitute other foods and flours.
Dianna, it is funny that you were from TX and diagnosed in Colorado because my friend (from Colorado) went to Texas where she was diagnosed. She was told she was allergic to just about every food available to man, though.
I just went to a gluten free class today. thought it was a cooking class, but it was just informational. talked about digestive system and places to eat/shop for groceries. the other two ladies are cancer survivors and let me know that I needed to try harder and prevent going down the slippery slope.

Good for you, Suzanne. That is the perfect way to get oriented. I live in the boonies in north central Teas If you go online to schar.com, they have a few videos (hope they are still there) about how to make your kitchen gluten free and other topics. Explore the topics in the Christians with Celiac team home page and the other GF teams. There are several posts there that could be useful. I was diagnosed almost 4 years ago by a functional doctor in Colorado. On the way home, we had an accident in the RV and it was unusable. So, we were stuck in Wichita Falls, TX for 3 weeks while the repair place waited for all the parts needed to arrive. We stayed in a motel just around the corner from a large supermarket with a good lunch counter. It also had a wonderful array of GF products - better than any I have experienced since. Remember, you have a huge selection of meats (no breading or gravy), poultry, seafood, etc., also all fruits and vegetables, rice, corn products, dairy. You can even get King Arthur Flour and use it like regular flour so you can have gravy, etc. Read, read, read. Search for Gluten Free online and you'll get thousands of hits. Don't get overwhelmed by info overload. Just take one at a time. Team - looking forward to the advice you have for this newbie to the lifestyle.

Hello! I just wanted to share that I'm attending a GF cookie making class on Friday. I don't plan on having many of these in my plan, but it will be nice to have some made up and in the freezer when I have that sweet tooth.
