New Gluten-Free Event

In “comments” Sign up for the particular session you would like to attend.

We warmly welcome Amy back! She will be introducing recipes from her soon-to-be-published cookbook.

You have the power to transform your life!

Besides leading “Introduction to Gluten-Free Baking for Busy Moms and Dads,” Jeffrey will be set-up in the back of the store during the day to meet with you one-on-one to offer the help you may need.

In his class at 11:30 AM, he will be addressing the family issue in which one family member is gluten intolerant or celiac, and the difficulties that arise. Maybe you are trying to convert the whole family to gluten free. Jeff will empower you to rethink the way you cook and bake for the entire family. If you have family members who are not gluten intolerant, they will also enjoy Jeff’s food and his approach. Nobody will be living without.

Stick around for the last half hour and Jeff will be giving a free tour of the Gluten-Free options that will make your life easier at Draeger’s.


Beyond Gluten Free – Is removing gluten alone enough to heal your gut? Have you removed gluten from your diet but are still struggling with health issues? For many, removing gluten is only the beginning of healing the gut lining and optimizing health. Join us as Wellness Coach, Kim Rice and Dr Melissa Ko share with us why only 8% of people with Celiac disease make a full recovery even after removing gluten. They’ll discuss other foods and factors that contribute to continued permeability of the gut lining. Did you know that many people who are intolerant to gluten also have a similar reaction to other commonly consumed foods? Learn about foods that can cause cross reactivity in the body and testing that is available to help you identify what foods could be causing continued inflammation. Don’t miss this informative session.
