Have you had a chance to try any of Rudi’s Gluten-Free breads yet? If not, you need to change that soon! Rudi’s has 3 varieties of gluten-free breads available – Whole Grain, Original & Cinnamon Raisin. My personal favorite is the Cinnamon Raisin – I love to top it with almond butter for breakfast! The whole grain is great for making sandwiches – either grilled, packed for school lunch or a deli-style turkey & cheese. Make sure to head over to Rudi’s Gluten-Free blog to keep up on all of the newest happenings.

How does “Spread the Bread” work?
For every $1 off coupon downloaded for a loaf of Rudi’s Gluten-Free Bread, Rudi’s will donate $1 to support the NFCA’s CME program, up to $20,000. Coupons are available now on Rudi’s Gluten-Free’s website and Facebook page, and will remain available through February, or until the goal is reached.
Through Spread the Bread, Rudi’s Gluten-Free Bakery is proudly supporting the NFCA’s efforts to educate physicians on the diagnosis of celiac disease through its Continuing Medical Education (CME) program. NFCA teamed up with top celiac doctors nationwide to create a program that provides education for primary care physicians focused on celiac disease with the goal of improving diagnosis and management of the disease. For full accreditation information, please visit: www.CeliacCMECentral.com.
“Every year, millions of people suffer unnecessarily as a result of the lack of diagnosis of celiac disease,” said Alice Bast, Founder and President of NFCA. “Our mission is to decrease the amount of time it takes for someone to get diagnosed, improve quality of life, and with the support of companies like Rudi’s Gluten-Free Bakery, we can better reach that goal.”
“We created Rudi’s Gluten-Free Bakery so people with celiac disease and gluten intolerance can once again take pleasure in eating tasty and healthy breads,” said Doug Radi, vice president of marketing for Rudi’s Organic Bakery. “In addition to creating great-tasting gluten-free breads, we’re also committed to raising awareness and furthering education about celiac disease through partnerships with organizations like NFCA. The Continuing Medical Education program’s goal to teach doctors to diagnose celiac disease will greatly impact the gluten-free community.”
There are an estimated three million people in the U.S. suffering from celiac disease – that’s one in 133– yet less than 200,000 are diagnosed. Through partnerships with gluten-free organizations like NFCA, Rudi’s Gluten-Free Bakery hopes to elevate the level of education and awareness on celiac disease and gluten-intolerance, as well as the gluten-free diet, through local and national initiatives that drive hope for a better, brighter future, like the Spread the Bread program.
Rudi’s Gluten-Free Bakery breads are available nationally at natural foods stores and select mainstream supermarkets. For more information, visit http://www.rudisglutenfree.com.

I think I am going to make a gourmet grilled cheese sandwich on Rudi’s Gluten-Free bread for lunch. I have some Gouda cheese that think I will pair with cheddar and then squeeze some sun-dried tomatoes in there – YUM!
