Whether it’s a trend or a legitimate health concern, there’s no argument that gluten free is the biggest buzz in dieting. One of the most prestigious celebrity events is the Sundance Film Festival and this year, gluten free made a big appearance.
Elizabeth Olson, Emily Blunt, Rashida Jones, Mario Lopez, and Lil Jon were just a few of the big names that strolled through the Fender Lounge and Miami Oasis Gifting Lounge to taste several varieties of Udi’s gluten free foods. On Sunday night Udi’s also provided the gluten free meal for the Creative Coalition’s Annual Spotlight Initiative Awards Gala Dinner.
The Udi company has a had a health nut following for several years. The company was started in the Denver, Colorado area by a husband and wife team. The family business has always been noted for its breads and has since branched out in to free standing cafes, bakeries, and even a Middle-Eastern themed restaurant. The separate company, Udi’s Gluten Free, has blossomed as one of the front runners in quality gluten free foods. Bagels, bread, cookies, granola, and pizza crusts are just a few of the products Udi has produced and made available to the public.
The “Gluten Free Movement,” as some are calling it, is making big waves. Many celebrities praise the weight loss benefits of a gluten free diet, while others are finding relief from digestion sensitivity, and others are probably just jumping on a fad diet bandwagon. Regardless, gluten-free is the new black and the meal on the stars plates are proving it.
