I've been hungry lately. And people tend to be uninformed about gluten intolerance. So I came up with a genius way to remedy both situations:
Rage Against The Grain 2012 Challenge
In this challenge, participants attempt to eat gluten free for a week. TRULY gluten-free, not half-assed gluten-free. No wheat, barley, rye, or oats (unless the oats are explicitly labeled as gluten-free or Irish). Reading labels for modified food starch and maltodextrin from unspecified sources. Keeping your eyes peeled for soy sauce (unless explicitly labeled as gluten-free) and additives in 'no-brainer' foods like ketchup, lunch meat, and margarine. Being mindful of cross-contamination in food preparation.
Paying such detailed attention to ingredient lists, preparation practices, and the diversity of more-and-less tasty products might be quite an eye-opener. To ensure you're abiding by an entirely gluten-free diet, serious Rage Against The Grain challengers can make me a meal and I'll come over to evaluate it for safety and deliciousness. You can hone your basic and advanced skills through consultation about flour blends, ingredient substitutions, and dessert offerings.
Rage Against The Grain 2012 promotes awareness of both the ubiquitous nature of gluten in the typical American diet and my insatiable appetite, while taking real steps toward alleviating my hunger. Obviously a win-win for all involved. Best week ever.
