CSA Sacramento Newsletter September 2011

Placerville Support Meeting, Sunday, September 11, 2:00-4:00 pm
If you missed Trudy Scott, CN, at our August Sacramento meeting, this is your chance! Our speaker is an expert in the field of nutrition and anxiety.  Trudy specializes in “Food for Mood” resources.   She will discuss poor digestion and food intolerances, nutritional deficiencies and lifestyle changes that can help us reduce stress, sleep well and improve our moods.  Her presentation will include information on how what we eat, what we don’t eat, and what time we eat are related to worry, fear, and anxiety.  She also has information on ending sugar and carb cravings.  (Trudy’s website is www.everywomanover29.com)

The meeting will be held at Federated Church:  Placerville, 1031 Thompson Way, Placerville, CA 95667.  There will also be time for additional questions, comments, and support for those who are newly diagnosed.   Experienced Celiacs are urged to bring healthy g-f snacks to share.  Please include copies of the recipe for homemade items, or packaging materials for store-bought.  Call or e-mail Kathe at 530 672-1104, kathehughes@sbcglobal.net for directions, or if you have questions that need answering prior to the meeting.
