NW Gluten-Free Summit

Mark your calendars: has announced a NW Gluten-Free Summit. Here is the blurb from their website:

Join us in Corvallis, Oregon as we meet for the Northwest Gluten Free Summit being held November 5-6, 2010.

Currently it is estimated that 1 out of 100 Americans has celiac disease. Of these, only 3% have been diagnosed. With over 300 associated signs and symptoms and without a clear, accurate diagnosis, celiac disease and gluten intolerance often go undiagnosed. Raising awareness of celiac disease is imperative in order to ensure optimum health for the approximately 3 million people estimated to be suffering from the disorder.

The North West Gluten Free Summit will offer an educational environment where health care professionals, patients, manufacturers, private business owners, chefs, food suppliers and families can collaborate to learn more about Celiac Disease and Gluten Intolerance directly from the experts.

They already have an impressive list of speakers. Registration is for this event is now open at their website: Click here to view the event flier.

Betty Crocker Mixes

Reader Allyson wrote in with a tip:

I was at Winco in Tigard this afternoon (Located right off 99W. I believe the cross streets are Dartmouth and 72nd.) and was surprised to see GF Betty Crocker mixes (all 4 varieties) on sale for $2.48! I asked the cashier if they were on sale because they were not going to be carrying them anymore but she said they have it at a promotional price because its a new product (to the store) and that she’s hoping people will buy them so the store continues to stock the mixes. I’ve seen them on the shelves at Winco for the past few months but they’ve always been about $4…about the same as Fred Meyer.

Hope everyone can take advantage of the great low price!

Thanks to Allyson for the heads-up.
