As many of you have picked up on, our office caters to a lot of food allergy sufferers in our daily operation. A huge portion of this population are those people that have the unfortunate situation of suffering with a Gluten Allergy. In addition, many people that suffer with this allergy or sensitivity also have the added discomfort of dealing with a Casein allergy (casein is a protein found in dairy products). Staying on a GFCF (Gluten Free/Casein Free) diet helps these folks out tremendously. In addition, the GFCF diet is a powerful tool that many use to aid individuals in recovering from autism, ADHD and several chronic illnesses that mainly involve gastrointestinal disorders and autoimmune diseases. CCW is continually seeking out new resources for GFCF people in order to make life a little easier and a lot more tasty! One of our newest finds is gfMeals...an online GFCF delivery service:
How To Get These Meals

REMEMBER...its all about balance, and while we DO like a lot of the products that gfMeals distributes there are some ingredients that should ALWAYS be watched (soy products and preservatives for example). Thankfully all ingredients are listed with each menu item online at www.gfMeals.com so don't forget to look at the list before you order. In addition, we also reccomend trying out some of our healthy GF recipes which can be found at http://ccwwellness-recipes.blogspot.com or under the Gluten Allergy Assistance section on the side menu of this blog. Cooking your own meals is not only healthier, it is often times therapeutic and very rewarding! If you are looking for some help in the convenience department however, gfMeals is a great option when mixed in with other food preparation practices!
