Living the spa life is about more than spending endless hours at the spa – although regular massage and professional skin care is highly recommended! Living the spa life is about high quality living every day. It’s about seeking wellness, whatever that means to you: a healthy lifestyle, adequate exercise and proper nutrition. In 2012, this “live the spa life” guide will share with you unique products and solutions to help you live the spa life throughout the year – even when you’re nowhere near your favorite spa.
Those on a gluten-free diet should fear the social gathering no more. Elizabeth Hasselbeck’s no-nonsense approach to gluten-free eating will change the landscape for those who suffer from Celiac Disease, other gluten-sensitivities or just want to enjoy a gluten-free lifestyle. Spa chefs can cater to just about any dietary preference and gluten-free is often no exception. But since you can’t have all your meals prepared for you buy a spa chef, you’ll need to be well armed to go it alone.
Hasselbeck has been there, done that so you don’t have to. She’s read and decoded every label, called the product manufacturer (sometimes repeatedly!) and suffered in silence when her research didn’t quite reveal hidden sources of gluten (the bag of corn chips that she fell hard for until they made her sick).
There are serious risks to cross-contamination and Elizabeth outlines every possible step to keeping a gluten-free kitchen: fastidious hand washing, washing dishes until not a trace of contaminant remains, and keeping gluten-free kitchen tools are just some of the pointers that you might not have thought about before ‘The G Free Diet”.
You’ll realize that you can travel safely, enjoy an adult beverage, and dine out with confidence with the savvy tips for dealing with every type of food-contact situation. She even gives advice on being on the lookout for gluten in your seemingly innocent beauty products.
There are even a few of Elizabeth’s favorite recipes to round out the comprehensive product listing, list of resources for those suffering with gluten sensitivities and hierarchy of grains.
If your body can’t tolerate gluten or you just want to explore an alternate diet that will let you enjoy foods that are less processed and closer to nature, read ‘The G Free Diet, A Gluten-Free Survival Guide’.
