As mentioned before in another post or newsletter that we would post some pictures from the Asthma event fair from earlier this month. Everyone involved did a great job in organizing the event and all the vendors who participated did a great job too! We are honored to have been apart of this great cause and association. Our table with brochures and lots of samples...
Here are some pictures of the Opening Day for the Southern Village Farmers market in Chapel Hill. It was our first time selling at this market, we had a good time! Sarah, the market manager is great and all the other farmers there were great too! We look forward to selling there every Thursday this market season. It is a great crowd and group of people to be working with. Twin Cakes Bakery looks forward to meeting more great customers this 2009 farmers market season.

The other day we were watching our favorite morning news show, The Today Show, and saw a great segment on food allergies. They had a mother, Robyn O'Brien who quickly learned the importance of hidden foods and the concept of eating like the Europeans...eat fresh foods nothing in a package. We enjoyed Robyn's idea of eating less processed foods and how easy it can be to eat this way. Please check out this video and Robyn O'Brien's book "The Unhealthy Truth". Thank you to Robyn and the Today Show for bringing this topic up to the public. We hope this helps open the idea to eat fresh fruits and vegetables for your whole family so everyone can feel great. Not only is eating less foods out of a box is better for your health, but also great way to produce less waste and save the environment.

As many of you know May is Celiac Disease Awareness Month with the American Celiac Disease Alliance and many other foundations like the Celiac Disease Foundation. Though, the CSA association has their awareness month in October. We feel the more awareness out there the better! One of our favorite blogs is Gluten Free Raleigh. Zach does a great job with posting great information and discussions. Check out his blog if you have not already. So join in the discussions and get involved with helping to increase the awareness of Celiac disease everywhere. Everyone can do their part in helping. Here at Twin Cakes Bakery we are always trying to educate our customers with information and advice that has worked for us and from our research. At the Children's Hospital Boston has great information about Celiac. We enjoyed the article (under the tab called additional information) "Why Gluten Free Diets are Healthy for Non-Celiacs" to be very interesting! Because we feel that it is good for everyone to incorporate more gluten free food into their diets. Here are some quick facts about Celiac Disease:
- it is a chronic condition mainly affecting the small intestines
- sensitivity to gluten a protein found in wheat, rye and barely
- estimated that 1 in 133 people have the disease
- estimated that there are over 2.1 million undiagnosed people with celiac disease in the US
