It has been such an interesting week. Peru has been on my mind for some reason, either in conversations or finding wonderful Gluten Free food. I find myself spending more time lately looking at food labels from around the world and am amazed to see my favorite image –
Ironically I received this email from a follower today that lives in Peru. (The information below is a literal translation from Nino.)
Celiacs and friends of the celiac: The newspaper El Peruano reported a few days ago that the parliamentary group Fujimori has passed a bill that labels for products to have a sign indicating if they have gluten or not. A very good initiative for a healthy and unhealthy. Dread political grouping. I’ll have them aware of the fate of the project. Celiac USA! Greetings, Nino
I wanted to share this with you because I think it gives us hope that we are becoming the majority and our voices are being heard for the need of better communication about our food! I really wish there was a global symbol for GLUTEN FREE FOODS.
Bravo! to Nino and his efforts to connect Celiacs around the globe!
Prayers for our friends in Chile … as I am writing this, the news about the 8.8 earthquake in Chile was just announced. There are also Tsunami warnings for a large area from Chile to the Hawaiian Islands and advisories reaching all the way up to my area in Washington State. I am in awe of the ripple affect of Mother Nature!
Peace to all …
