Food Science, Health and Wellness, Travel, and More
This past Thursday there was a lovely launching reception for Sandi Star’s newest book – Beyond Gluten – A Healing Transition. As someone who has been gluten free for over ten years, I was especially keen to listen to any new information and of course, check out some delicious gluten free treats.
Sandi’s inspiration for the book began similarly to my own journey with gluten - we both sought out answers for health maladies that would not resolve with modern medicinal practices. This lead her to heal herself by going gluten free and focusing on overall gut health. With newfound energy and enthusiasm, Sandi studied holistic medicine and clinical nutrition to help other realize their health goals. Her book began as a guideline for clients, which turned into a 200-page volume.
Beyond Gluten educates readers on triggers that can cause diabetes, gastrointestinal issues, and other health maladies, how to begin eating gluten free, optimal foods for health, and even 50 pages of recipes with beautiful pictures.

Clockwise: Paleo Pumpkin Bread, Peanut Butter Brownie, and Spice Cake from Praeger Bros. My favorite? The scrumptious and rich (but not too sweet!) Peanut Butter Brownie!
The event was hosted at the hip and cozy Leap Coffee.
