Food, Life

I’m headed to Dallas!! {again}

Each year, the GFAF Expo hosts an amazing conference in Dallas with wall-to-wall allergy-friendly vendors. Imagine a venue filled with everything gluten-free you could possibly imagine! Granola bars, snacks, cookies, bread, PIZZA, cake…you name it and it’s probably there. And the best part? You can sample ALL of it!

I remember the first time I heard about the conference. I was newly diagnosed and was hesitant to try new gluten-free foods because let’s be honest, not all gluten-free food is created equal. I have had my share of trying and wasting money on not-so-great products. So the idea of being able to sample products before I purchased was a pretty good incentive. In addition to sampling some great food, I also was introduced to so many new products and the stores I could locate them at. As a diagnosed celiac, that’s pretty incredible.

This will make my third year to attend as official expo press and I can’t wait. I absolutely love the feeling of walking in and knowing that I can sample whatever I want in that room. To not worry about cross-contamination or if they really understand celiac disease. EVERYONE there understands. Over the years, I’ve had the opportunity to meet some really wonderful people, share my story, test out products and promote the products I enjoy. I am also incredibly thankful to the Expo for allowing me the opportunity to attend as press and spread the word about this event!

If you can make it to Dallas, or any of the other expo locations, I highly recommend it. You won’t be disappointed and it will be well worth your time. I utilize my Instagram account to document my Expo Journey and all the awesome things I find. Follow me on there, not only for the latest in my GF journey but definitely in October when I head to Dallas for the expo!
