Hello upstate New Yorkers!
I'll be speaking and signing my book at the the Rockland/Bergen R.O.C.K. Chapter
November 15, 2011
In the Krutz Auditorium of Nyack Hospital
Nyack Hospital directions
From the Rockland/Bergen R.O.C.K. Chapter:
Our special guest will be Sloane Miller (aka Allergic Girl), founder and president of Allergic Girl Resources, Inc., a consultancy devoted to food allergy awareness. A licensed social worker, Sloane combines a lifetime of personal experience and passion with professional expertise to connect with people about how to live safely, effectively, and joyously with food allergies. She consults with private clients, the food and hospitality industry, government and not-for-profit advocacy organizations. Sloane is the author of Please Don't Pass the Nuts, an award-winning blog for and about people affected by food allergies and she is also the creator of Worry-Free Dinners®, a membership group for people with manageable food allergies and/or food intolerances looking to explore restaurants, chefs and foodservice organizations that will offer an exclusive allergy-friendly meal. In March 2011, Sloane’s first book, Allergic Girl: Adventures in Living Well With Food Allergies, was published by John Wiley & Sons.
Our favorite registered dietitian Rachel Begun, MS, RD, will also join us to answer your dietary questions and, as always, I will also share recent Celiac news and information on upcoming events, including a special NYNJ R.O.C.K. event in December for the kids!
Refreshments will be provided by Angie's Kettle Corn, Andean Dream Quinoa Cookies, and Schär.
The "perfect balance of sweetness and salt," Angie's Kettle Corn is authentic, all-natural, healthy, certified gluten-free, free of the regulated eight food allergens, and kosher. Angie's Kettle Corn is made with only four all-natural ingredients: Popcorn, Corn Oil, Cane Sugar, and Sea Salt. "No cholesterol, no trans-fats, no artificial flavors, no preservatives, no guilt!"
Also gluten, trans-fat, and cholesterol-free, Andean Dream Cookies are made with organic Royal Quinoa, which is rich in high-quality proteins, vitamins and minerals, and all eight amino acids essential for nutrition. The company's individually wrapped cookies—which are perfect for lunchboxes—come in five varieties: Orange Essence, Chocolate Chip, Cocoa-Orange, Raisins & Spice and Coconut, all of which will be available for sampling at the meeting.
Known as Europe’s #1 gluten-free food brand, Schär offers more than 30 dedicated GF items in the US. The company has generously donated samples of its award-winning gluten and lactose-free parbaked breads. A great source of fiber, these breads require only 10 minutes in the oven for a fresh-baked taste!
Nyack Hospital will supply coffee, tea and cold beverages.
