Carol Kicinski Launches Simply Gluten Free
Gluten-free cookbook author and TV chef teams with top bloggers from the Web’s gluten-free community to create an informative, high-quality publication celebrating the abundance of choices available to everyone dedicated to living a gluten-free/allergen-free lifestyle
Gluten-free living expert Carol Kicinski, author of the books, Simply…Gluten Free Deserts and Simply…Gluten Free Quick Meals, has announced the launch of Simply Gluten Free Magazine, a high-quality, aesthetic, highly informative bi-monthly publication with a mission to provide knowledge, support, and an abundance of creative solutions to those seeking optimum health for themselves and their families by embracing gluten-free and/or allergen free lifestyles. The magazine, which will also be published in digital format at www.simplyglutenfreemag.com, will be loaded with great tasting and easy-to-prepare recipes brought to life with page-after- page of gorgeous food photography. Kicinski says in terms of quality, styling, and content, the new magazine will rival even the most well-established mainstream food and lifestyle magazines on the market.
“Simply Gluten Free Magazine is a magazine that I very much wanted to read, so I decided to create it,” said Kicinski, who in addition to operating one of the top 60 Must Read Health Blogs in America at SimplyGluten-Free.com, is now appearing in her 3rd year of monthly gluten-free cooking segments broadcast on Daytime TV, a nationally syndicated morning show.
Working in tandem with the magazine’s Editor-in-Chief Wendy Gregory, (a veteran magazine editor, blogger, freelance writer, and a mother of two celiac children), Kicinski has recruited the talents of a team of well-respected and highly popular bloggers from the Web’s allergen-free community to serve as the magazine’s writing staff.
“Each of our contributing writers focuses on their own areas of special interest and research,” says Kicinski. “They are all amazing people who are dealing with creating an allergen-free lifestyle for themselves and their families every day, finding and testing various products and then blogging about their own experiences and reactions. These writers are all very involved in allergen-free issues on the front lines, fighting the fight and walking the walk.”
Kicinski says the magazine’s content will be filled with plenty of articles and recipes about gluten-free cooking, suggestions for fun gluten-free crafts and allergy-free projects using allergy-free materials, as well as articles on what she calls allergen-free “Homekeeping”. She also says that a section of the publication will be devoted to featuring relevant advice from various experts from the fields of health and medicine.
“The magazine will also have a Beauty section where authors will discuss gluten-free and allergen-free beauty products,” says Kicinski. “Also included in each issue is a section called ‘Beyond Gluten Free’, which features diet tips and recipes for those on special allergen-free diets including Sugar-free, Dairy-free and Nut-free diets; Paleo, Vegetarian and Vegan preferences.”
Kicinski says readers can expect to find plenty of advice on how to keep children of all ages gluten-free (and loving it) in a section called ‘The Gluten Free Family’. A Nutrition section will feature taste-tested recipes and tips for healthier, more nutritious meals.
“Those worried about staying gluten-free while on the road can find plenty of advice in our Traveling section, and our Dining Out section will feature suggestions on how to keep things gluten-free at your favorite restaurant. We’ll also have a section addressing Special Needs Diets, which will provide allergen-free nutritional advice, recipes, and insights for parents caring for special needs children with autism, ADHD or ADD.”
Kicinski says on the magazine’s New Products page her writers will be reporting on both established brands and the new gluten-free and allergy-free products hitting the marketplace, and they’ll also be analyzing and reviewing the latest books on the topic of allergy-free living in the magazine’s Book Reviews section.
Kicinski says for the November/December inaugural issue, the magazine’s Holiday Entertainment section will be filled to the brim with informative articles on how to celebrate in style with an assortment of gluten-free food ideas:
- Mix & Match Holiday Dinners: Creative combinations of gluten-free entrees and side dishes to delight your guests
- Tips for Lowering the Costs of Gluten-free Diets
- Holiday Cocktails: How to Get the Party Started and Stay Gluten-free
- Preparing a Paleo Holiday Treat
- Glitch-free Holiday Baking
- Easy Allergen-free Substitutions
- Vegan Holiday Dessert Recipes
- Breaking Medical and Scientific News and Information by Leading Doctors
Simply Gluten Free Magazine will be distributed through subscriptions and in supermarkets, health food stores, doctors’ offices, and nutritionists’ offices, and is projected to have an initial combined monthly readership of over 250,000 (15,000 print and over 235,000 online).
The magazine, published by Edgewater Park Media, Inc., in Dunedin, Florida, will of course contain Kicinski’s signature touch – her loving, caring, and humorous attitude.
“The magazine is about forwarding the positive side of living an allergen-free lifestyle, constantly celebrating the abundance of solutions, and the joy of living gluten-free,” says Kicinski.
