Phoenix gluten-free author hosts book signing at Hue-Man Books in New York

Posted by rhondascooking on April 6, 2011

Rhonda Peters, the author of So, What Can I Eat Now?! and the CEO of Rhonda’s Cooking LLC, hosts a meet and greet and book signing this Saturday, April 9th from 2pm – 4pm at the historic Hue-Man Bookstore and Cafe, located at 2319 Frederick Douglass Blvd, New York, NY.  While there, she’ll visit the Wendy Williams Show and her new media partner Real Health Magazine.

When you know better, you eat better and Rhonda Peters knows this concept all too well.  Diagnosed with thyroid

disease at age 22 and a year later Rheumatoid Arthritis, it seemed a lifetime of pain and the consumption of experimental medications would be her fate.  After eleven years, a chance meeting with a naturopathic doctor prompted her to alter her diet. The adjustments included consuming low sodium, low fat meals and excluding a number of foods such as gluten, soy, dairy, and eggs from her diet.  This changed her life dramatically and caused a miraculous boost in her health and lifestyle.  Peters immediately began creating recipes reminiscent of home cooked meals she learned to prepare in her mother’s Louisiana kitchen.  Before long, a collection of delicious meals were born.  Compelled to share the recipes several years ago, Peters wrote So, What Can I Eat Now?! and has since made a lifelong commitment to help others.

“The book is a four year labor of love for people recently diagnosed with food allergies, Rheumatoid Arthritis, thyroid disease, hypertension, high cholesterol, and for those who want to learn to cook healthier, delicious meals,” confides Peters.  Not a typical cookbook, her story and personal journey are chronicled throughout the pages.  She connects with her readers through commentary and personal tips for every recipe.  As a bonus, nutritional facts accompany each dish, as well as a full color photo.

Please email info@rhondascooking.com if you have any questions regarding the book signing or send a message via Twitter @RhondaPeters.
