Elana Amsterdam, author of the Gluten-Free Almond Flour Cookbook and Elana's Pantry blog, is a local gluten-free writer with a special focus on almond flour. Why almond flour? Almond flour is rich in protein, low in carbs, and a great alternative to gluten-filled wheat flour for those who can not eat gluten, such as those with celiac disease or gluten-intolerance. A growing number of people are also following a gluten-free diet for autism, ADD, ADHD, IBS, fibromyalgia, and various other illnesses or diseases.
Amsterdam is currently on tour with her cook book and is presenting in Chicago at the Gluten-Free Cooking Expo on April 17-18, and will be at a CSA meeting in Davis, CA, on August 7, 2010. She will be signing locally at Pharmaca in Boulder on April 15, 2010. For more information about Elana, her perspective on almond flour, her cookbook, her blog, and her schedule, visit her website.
