It’s finally spring! In March I told you about the new healthy living tours I’m doing at all Lunds and Byerly’s stores. The program focus in March was the NuVal Nutrition Scoring System in our stores. Many of you joined me for NuVal store tours and chatted with me when I was in your stores talking about NuVal. For those that did, I hope you enjoyed it as much as I did!
April’s topic is centered on eating and shopping gluten free I’ll be doing several complimentary store tours focused on this topic. Please see the calendar of events to register! We’ll check out the shelf tags together, talk about living healthfully gluten free and sample a few gluten free favorites too.
I’ve blogged in the past about gluten free living and what we’re doing to support you if you’re living gluten free. It’s easy to shop gluten free in our stores! When you’re in the grocery aisles, just look for our gluten free symbol on the shelf tag. This assures you those products have been verified by the Gluten Free Certification Organization and meet their standard of less than 20 parts per million of gluten.
I’m hosting a fun mini event called “Gluten Free Taste and Tour!” Join me at Byerly’s Ridgedale on April 24 from 3-6 p.m. and at Lunds Ford Parkway on April 25 from 3-6 p.m. Amy from gfGoodies (http://gfgoodies.com/) will be there sampling a few of her delicious goodies, including her yummy gluten-free chicken tenders. Our FoodE Experts Amy and Wendy will be on hand with gluten free samples and I’ll be doing store tours.
I hope you join us to see how easy it is to shop gluten free at Lunds and Byerly’s. As always, please feel free to contact me with any questions!
