Whoa!! Is it already that time of year?? It’s getting dangerously close to one of my favorite events of the year… The Gluten Free and Allergen Friendly Expo is coming to Dallas, Texas this September 10th and 11th. This will be my THIRD year attending as a member of the press! Can you tell that I am excited?! […]
I have become a huge fan and a new customer of many of the products and brands that I have discovered over the past two Gluten Free and Allergen Friendly Expos. Many might think that I am just a blogger and only go to these events for fun since I do not have Celiac Disease or any food allergies. I have actually become more health conscious and been able to share great information with friends and readers who have dietary restrictions.
Getting a diagnosis of Celiac Disease or a food allergy is not the end of the world. It doesn’t mean you have to eat dirt flavored food. It doesn’t mean that you can’t enjoy a meal ever again. There are SO many things that I buy now that I would have never tried in the past because I figured they would be bland or boring since they were “gluten-free”.
I look forward each year to learning about new companies and new products from brands that I already love. There are things you should know before you go gluten-free, so be aware of the nutrients you may lose and know how to replace them.
I have favorite products from the expo that are in all categories of food from seasonings to decadent desserts. Let me tell you about a few of the new staples in my home…

The Gluten-Free and Allergen-Friendly Exposition (GFAF Expo for short) is like a fair for anyone and everyone—even those who are neither gluten-intolerant nor require allergy-friendly products—who wants to learn about gluten-free and/or allergen-friendly living. In other words, if you’re a teacher, have friends/family following or requiring the lifestyle, and/or interested in the lifestyle as a whole—just in case something happens in the future—you should attend.
