Before I get to my interview on the benefits of gluten-free diet for kids, I’ve got to discuss my week as a vegetarian. The staff at the (now closed) Return to Eden Organic Market (2335 Cheshire Bridge Road in Atlanta) guided me through some amazing good choices, including some frozen meals from Amy’s like pot pie and pizza. They were tasty. The cheese-free pizza was a little dry for A.J. so I let him dip the pieces in tomato sauce.
I developed immense respect for vegetarians because their diet takes a lot of time to prepare and it helps to keep fresh ingredient nearby. I admit, I ate some turkey this week. But it’s start.
Benefits of a Gluten-Free Diet for Kids
Return to Eden Organic Market sells an array of gluten-free foods, including baked goods from Pure Knead bakery in Decatur. Check out my interview with Michelle Kelly, the mom owner of Pure Knead Bakery, on the benefits of a gluten-free diet for kids. Please share it with other families who are coping with the symptoms she mentions.
One of the most delicious places to grab a gluten-free or dairy-free meal with your family is Uncle Maddio’s Pizza with various locations around Atlanta.
My goal when I first started Fitness Friday in June 2010, was to lose 10 pounds by now. I started at 209 pounds, lost and gained a long the way. Last week I was one pound away from my goal. I’d hoped to be 199 today, but that didn’t happen.
I gained a pound this week. I admit, I only worked out once and snacked a bit at night.
First of all, congrats on losing 8 pounds! That is awesome! I love reading your fitness Friday posts.
Also, I loved the interview! We began a gluten-free diet almost 4 weeks ago to see if it could help my 2.5 year old son with his focus problems. He has Autism and has a very hard time focusing, which makes it hard for him to learn new things. In the last few weeks we have seen an incredible difference! He has learned some new words and can sit through a therapy session without having to run around every few minutes. I think the change in diet has been great! Thanks for discussing GF diet this week 🙂
I love Amy’s! She’s got a lot of dairy free choices for comfort food you can’t find elsewhere.
I am lucky that no one in my family has gluten allergies, however, I do try to buy healthier, cleaner products, so I would be interested in trying Pure Knead’s baked goodies. I do have a sweet tooth too! I think my daughter may have soy allergy, so I am always precautious on what I buy and feed her.
