Today we are spotlighting a neat little gluten free cookbook that Quest Center for Integrative Health has created to raise money for their ongoing work here in Portland Oregon. This local non profit healthcare clinic has created “Gluten Free? Eat Good and Feel Great!” as a fundraiser to continue their work providing multidisciplinary and integrative health care in a community based setting to all people regardless of income. The sale of each of these cookbooks will help provide healthcare and nutrition advice to their patients, 75% of which are low-income, and under- or uninsured.
This cookbook features lots of healthy gluten free options, as well as a number of pages devoted to helpful hints and popular substitutions. We are definitely going to enjoy testing out their recipe for “Ultimate Oatmeal Cookies” on one of these rainy fall days
If you are interested in picking up this neat little cookbook, and supporting a great cause you can call 503-238-5203 or email them at firstname.lastname@example.org .
