Gluten Free News Round Up and Upcoming Events: March 25th-April 1st

This week's News:

We all know allergy and autoimmune disease shopping can be overwhelming, and expensive. In this CNN article, author Elizabeth Gordon of The Complete Allergy-Free Comfort Foods Cookbook and Allergy-Free Desserts shares her tips and tricks to eating gluten free without breaking the bank. 

Modified food starch is one of those tricky products in a gluten free life style, read on to find out how safe the product is to your diet. The article also discusses some differences between this products development in the USA and in the UK. 

Although only mentioned briefly, I feel the topic of breastfeeding is highly connected to the realm of autoimmune disorders and general infant, and future, health. The article suggests many benefits to breastfeeding in general, and doing so for longer!
