Recently diagnosed with Celiac Disease or gluten intolerance? Curious about going gluten free and wondering whether it will make you feel better? We’ll discuss the basis of the gluten free diet and how to dot it safely, easily and healthily. Learn how to avoid cross-contamination and the foods with “hidden” gluten.
Many people, including those with celiac disease, find that they are unable to tolerate the proteins found in gluten-containing grains. Luckily, it’s never been so easy to be gluten-free! Whether you’re considering eliminating gluten from your diet or you’ve been gluten-free for years, you will learn how to more safely, easily, healthily and quickly live gluten free. We begin with question and answer on gluten free living, as well as a discussion of how to safely make the transition to being gluten free full time. From there we hit the shelves, for a tour that illuminates, aisle by aisle, the myriad of foods available at Whole Foods Market for those avoiding gluten. Each attendee receives a $5 gift card, can sample gluten free products and receives valuable resources for enjoying this diet! Space is limited. RSVP Required.
Restore Your Digestion & Restore Your Health

There is so much more to digestion than our gastrointestinal system. Our digestion determines our ability to get nutrients out of our food; our ability to create neurotransmitters that fuel our brain and stabilize our emotional and mental health; our ability to properly utilize proteins, fats and carbs so that we have stable blood sugar; and our ability to create hormones in our body that influence our sex life, our energy levels and our ability to respond to stress. When our digestion is disturbed, every process in our body is disturbed. And inflammation is what peturbs our digestive health most. Inflammation in our gastrointestinal tract results in inflammation in our brain, our joints and our life; as well as for some people, results in diarrhea, constipation, alternating diarrhea and constipation, cramping, gnarly gas and bloating. Inflammation also upregulates our immune system and in cases of Inflammatory Bowel Disease and other autoimmune disorders, the body is triggered to assault its own tissues. Everyone’s immune system triggers can be different. In this workshop, we will discuss those foods that are inflammatory for everyone, those foods that are anti-inflammatory for most people and those foods that are common immune triggers individually.
From Exhausted to Energized: Change Your Diet and Banish Fatigue
FREE! Tuesday, April 22, 6:30-8pm, Cherry Creek Whole Foods, 2375 E 1st Ave, Denver, CO. Each attendee receives a Whole Foods $5 Gift Card. Space is limited. RSVP Below is Required.
Fatigue can be overcome and energy can be restored. Regardless of the form of fatigue that you experience, be it chronic (such as chronic fatigue syndrome, fibromyalgia, Addison’s or adrenal fatigue) or acute (such as adrenal stress or cohabitating tiredness from stress, medication, chemotherapy, overwork, depression, hypothyroidism, menopause or imbalanced gut health), there is hope. This workshop focuses on one piece of the solution for all forms of exhaustion, which is the adoption of an anti-inflammatory diet. Your resilience to stress, your vitality, your endurance and even your very happiness all depend on the proper functioning of your adrenal glands and your adrenal glands are reliant upon calming down inflammation. In addition to learning about the anti-inflammatory diet, you will learn which specific foods are beneficial for your adrenal glands and restoring the energy in your cells and which foods are energy robbers. Most importantly, we will discuss time- and energy-saving techniques in the kitchen so that eating healthy restores your energy stores, not depletes them.
