This year, on Saturday August 2nd at the brand new Natural Grocers by Vitamin Cottage on the corner of Colfax and Washington in Denver, Colorado, the ever-popular topic, gluten-free, is in the spotlight.
What's the Gluten-free hype all about?
Gluten is a protein found in various grains, such as wheat, barley and rye. The protein is toxic to the human body and causes irritation in the intestines, resulting in internal inflammation in many people. The protein also prevents the proper absorption of other vitamins and minerals, and is therefore referred to as an 'anti-nutrient'.
Whether you are on a strictly gluten-free diet, are Paleo like me, or are just interested in learning more about the benefits of a gluten-free lifestyle, you won't want to miss this event.
What can I expect at the event?
You will enjoy talks and cooking demonstrations from 11:00am until 4:30pm as well as plenty of opportunities to sample gluten-free delicacies of all kinds.
