First, thanks to Kimberly for interviewing me!
This weekend I attended a fabulous meetup group meeting about gluten ("Myths and Truths about Gluten"). The presenter, Dr. Jo (you can find his blog here) was very informative. I learned more about links gluten has to other autoimmune diseases. It was very eye opening. For me this is just another example of continuing my education about health and nutritional awareness. I feel when I stopped eating low carb the first time (after becoming pregnant), it was because I believed all the myths and lies about the damage the low carb lifestyle could do to me. Learning about gluten and other issues that impact my health has firmed my resolve to stick with my choice to remain low carb for life. Vanity can only move your choices so far... eventually you have to find other reasons. Regaining health was huge for me.
I was also able to meet Kimberly Hartke who works as one of our meetup group organizers. She also works heavily with the Weston A. Price Foundation (WAPF) as the publicist. I follow her work. (I am a member of the WAPF.) It's always great to meet other people who are passionate about the same things you are!
