I know I rave about this Expo every year, but it is seriously heaven for anyone with food allergies/sensitivities. Owen looks forward to this each and every year. He can't wait to visit his favorite brands and try some new ones. Consistently his favorites are Enjoy Life Foods, Sweet Ali's, SunButter, Pamela's and Simple Mills.
For me I love seeing the innovation and how brands are really going above and beyond to provide the best foods for everyone. Gluten free foods have come so far since Owen was first diagnosed. Foods have transformed from mediocre at best to better than "regular" products. Not only has the taste of foods exceeded our expectations, but the quality and health benefits have skyrocketed!
At the Gluten Free and Allergen Free Expo- you are surrounded by others who understand and care. It is a safe environment, free from assumptions, judgments and rude comments. People and brands truly care and work hard to give you security in their products.
If you haven't attended an event yet, you really should! Even if you just know someone who has allergies, it is a great place to gain knowledge and understanding.
Are you already going? Look me up! I'll be there covering all the great products, and sharing them on Instagram.
