The Gluten & Allergen Free Expo is coming, the Gluten & Allergen Free Expo is coming!!

The Gluten and Allergen Free Expo is coming to Dallas!  Well - actually The Plano Convention Center on October 26th and 27th.

I have been chosen as an "Official Expo Blogger" and am so excited!  Honestly I would blog about it anyway but it was nice to be recognized.  

Gracie and I went together last year and LOVED IT!  There was so much to see, do and TASTE!

Lets start the Top 5 Countdown for the Gluten Free Expo:

1.  FOOD!  And lots of it.  Everything there Gracie could taste - and she did!

Gracie doesn't eat a lot of things and what she does is pretty much the same things (quesadillas, cereal, pizza dip. peanut butter sandwiches on Udi's bread and fried rice.)  At the Expo she tried EVERYTHING and it really opened here eyes to new ideas.  It was great to see her trying different things and finding things she loved.  Pizza - LOTS of pizza!  Chicken nuggets, cakes, cookies, muffins, smoothies, pasta, cereal - you name it it was there to try.

I love that there is a good mix of established  as well as new Gluten Free businesses - I love that the gluten free product industry is growing and getting better and better every day.  I love that we are no longer forced to choose between nasty, dry, cardboard GF foods and delicious, moist and "taste like normal" foods.  I love that that is a place we can find things we might not otherwise find them.  I love the Gluten and Allergen Free Expo!  I also love that Gracie is so excited.

We hope to see you there!

Thank you for your blog. My daughter was just diagnosed a month or so ago (she's 8) and I've immersed myself in learning all about Celiac and GF living! It's nice to get info from another mom who's been there.
