I just got my Jan/Feb edition of Gluten Free Living yesterday. I only started my subscription with the magazine in the fall, so the Nov/Dec edition was my first exposure to the magazine. I was a little disappointed after reading that edition because it centered so much on recipes and holiday living. In retrospect, I think that is the downfall of many magazines around the holidays. Lesson learned, never judge a magazine by its holiday issue :) Now after seeing the Jan/Feb edition, I'm so glad I stuck with it.
For starters, I'm excited to report that it is a local magazine. After reading a few references to DC area places and even a mention of Alexandria Public Schools, I looked at the masthead and found that the magazine is based in Quincy, Maryland. I love this aspect because it makes it even more relevant for us, as Northern Virginia readers.
The magazine covers a multitude of relevant topics and current event issues in the gluten free world. It has articles that discuss family life issues, like school lunches for gluten free kids and college kids adjusting to gluten free life on campus. Then there are also interesting interviews with the founders of some of the gluten free product companies. For instance, this month focused on gluten free breads and the rise of them in the grocery stores. There also are some interesting articles on traveling gluten free and on local restaurants that offer gluten free options.
Overall, I'm really glad I gave this magazine a second look. There really is something for everyone to read, whether you're a mom, a traveler, or a teen. This magazine is a must-have for the Northern Virginia gluten free population! In fact, I believe this so much so, that I arranged for one lucky reader to get a year subscription to Gluten Free Living. Check out the giveaway page to enter. Good luck!
