About the Author
Danna has been researching celiac disease since her son, Tyler, was diagnosed with the condition in 1991. That same year, she founded R.O.C.K. (Raising Our Celiac Kids), a support group for families of children on a glutenfree diet. Today, Danna leads more than 100 chapters of R.O.C.K. worldwide. She is a consultant to retailers, manufacturers, testing companies, dietitians, nutritionists, and people newly diagnosed with gluten intolerance and celiac disease. She also coordinates the International Walk/Run for Celiac Disease each May in San Diego.
Connie Sarros is a pioneer in writing gluten-free cookbooks for celiacs, beginning at a time when few people had even heard of the disease. She has written five cookbooks, a “Newly Diagnosed Survivial Kit,” and made a DVD that covers all you need to know about gluten-free cooking. She writes weekly menus for people with additional dietary restrictions and puts out two monthly newsletters. Connie is also a staff writer for other celiac newsletters, including having a monthly “Ask the Cook” column.
In addition to being a featured speaker at national celiac conferences, Connie travels the country speaking to celiac and austistic support groups and often meets with dietitians to explain the gluten-free diet.
