Gluten-Free on Emeril Green!

Yesterday, I was flipping the channels and found Emeril Green on. For those who don't know, Emeril Green is a show in which Emeril (and Whole Foods) help the average consumer with their "food issue" by teaching them how to shop and cook healthy foods on Planet Green. I've watched it a few times - on one episode Emeril helped a guy who ate the same food - EVERYDAY. Yesterday's episode was about helping a grandfather who's two year old granddaughter couldn't have gluten, egg, dairy, soy, and nuts.

Emeril had help from a dietitian who walked with them around the store to explain how to read labels and different options for those with food intolerances and allergies. She discussed the different flours and why you can't sub one for one. They even tasted tested different chocolate chips (the Enjoy Life brand won).

They made:

At the end, the grandkids came and ate what they made. This was the first time the granddaughter had pasta!

Thanks for your post! I wasn't aware that Emeril's show was about that - the Whole Foods, and how to shop, etc. Great that he did GF and CF! Now I just have to figure out when he's on - what station too!

I loved his old Essence show and watched this new show on Planet Green. Kind of boring and pointless. Not very good.
