August 2013 Meeting Summary

Thanks to everyone that attended the meeting on August 20th of the Prescott Area Celiac & Gluten Free Support.  There were 21 folks in attendance for a cookie-fest! Those that were not able to make it were missed.

Most everyone enjoyed the Liz Lovely Cookies. Renee will let the company know about the discrepancies in prices and locations of the products at Safeway. They are either $2.99 or $3.99 for two large cookies and are located in the bakery department. They are available either in Safeway/Prescott Valley or Safeway/Willow Creek Rd. in Prescott.

During the August meeting Renee brought canisters and bags of the freeze dried food that she uses.  The company is "ThriveLife" and they have been certified as Gluten Free.  They are getting their GMO certification, but the products are already GMO. They have a company statement regarding the GF Certification.  Also, Joe & Thelma brought a great cook book that she uses a lot called:  "You Won't Believe it's Gluten-Free", by Robin Ryberg.

It was very meaningful to hear everyone's story of their gluten-free journey and we look forward to seeing you again at the group's next meeting on tuesday, September 17th, 12:30PM at Prescott Public Libary Founder's Room B on the lower level.
