Take the time yourself to find a restaurant like Cedar near you for your special occasions, or one you can patronize regularly. You will be rewarded with amazing, safe meals, and the restaurant will be rewarded for attending to your and others’ dietary needs. You deserve a night out once in awhile – take it with confidence and enjoy the treat of someone else in the kitchen for a change!

Particularly in 2011- the year the FDA finally moved forward to establish regulations setting standards for gluten-free food labeling – we should all take time to educate friends, family, restaurants, retailers, doctors, teachers … about celiac disease and the importance of truly gluten-free foods for those of us who live gluten-free. Oh, and let’s celebrate with a contest!!!

Fresh off the baking and building extravaganza that was 1in133.org, I thought it would be wise to take a few minutes to reflect upon at least some of what went into this event and what has already come out of it. Many of you already know about our 1in133 mission to build the world’s tallest gluten-free cake, but do you know how we did it, and even more importantly, why? Well, kick back with a gluten-free drink and have a read. I promise it’s a good story!
