GFAF: Beyond The Expo

 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.

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…
