I'm on the Road in Utah

I am looking forward to hitting the road in August to visit a chain of markets that are newly carrying my cookbook, Delightfully Free. I'll be visiting all four of the Real Foods Markets based in Utah!  I appreciate the company's observation concerning the state of prepared and processed foods. A quote from their website reads: "The processing of destroys most of the nutrient value of the original food. Most processed foods could be labeled 'nutrient free' and it would not be too far from the truth!" Exactly!! One of the chief goals of my book Delightfully Free, is not only to offer delicious quiches, entrees, soups, salads, muffins, cookies, pies and cakes that are gluten, diary and refined sugar-free, but to create them using whole foods as ingredients, resulting in wholesome food with nutrients still intact. What a concept...fabulously delicious recipes, still containing an abundance of nutrient value!

Delightfully Free came to be carried by Real Foods Markets as a result of meeting an amazing young woman at the Celiac Disease Foundation National Convention this year in Pasadena, California. I met Chandice Probst, gluten-free warrior and director of the Gluten-Free Calendar. We became fast friends. Chandice also has a very popular website and blog, Gluten-Free Frenzy. She was kind enough to review my book on her website and apparently her mother, Tana, had a chance to see the book and taste some of the recipes. Tana, who is the buyer for Real Foods Markets, so liked what she saw and tasted that my cookbooks are now featured in all of their stores. I could not be more pleased to have Delightfully Free in the scenic and friendly state of Utah, and especially in a market that promotes exactly what its name stands for, Real Foods!

We have scheduled book signings at all 3 of their current locations and, if their brand new Salt Lake City store opens in time, we'll make it 4!  I really hope that the SLC store opens in time. Fingers crossed.

Here's the schedule so far. On August 20th, 2013, I will be signing books at the Real Foods Market in St. George, Utah from 11:30 am to 3:30 pm.
