The Organic Butcher is now carrying an assortment of Deborah Joy's Gluten-Free and local baked goods. For those of you who are sensitive to gluten or have just chosen to eliminate it from your diet, you will be thrilled when you try these.
While getting her master's degree in nutrition, Deborah learned that the processed food she was eating could cause problems for her digestive system and create a pathway for autoimmune disease. She changed her diet, eliminating gluten, processed foods, and sugars. Within one month she began to see results, her cholesterol was lower and she had more energy. Since then, Deborah has worked tirelessly to match the texture and taste of her baked goods to conventional recipes.
In addition to making these wonderful treats, Deborah teaches in-home classes on gluten-free cooking in Northern Virginia. She believes that a gluten-free diet shouldn't be a burden, but an enjoyable lifestyle. Trust us when we say that her chocolate chip cookies are seriously some of the best we have ever tried — you definitely won't feel deprived.
Stop in soon to try Deborah Joy's almond, chocolate chip, and peanut butter cookies. Plus, her assortment of muffins, bars and breads. You'll be glad you did!
