Gluten Free? Here is the place to be this June! #GFAFEXPO

I am so excited to be planning our 5th year as a blogger for the Gluten Free and Allergen Free Expo. This expo has become a great place for Owen and me to escape the craziness of our daily lives and spend time together. It has become a very safe place for Owen to let loose and be himself. I can see as he ages that living a different life than his peers is getting harder. He is starting to want to cheat and see what happens, he is starting to decide that gluten-free foods are not as good as regular foods, I'd like to personally thank his sister for putting that into his head. Being at the expo, Owen doesn't have to deal with criticism or the feelings of being any different than other kids there. If anything he starts to realize how easy he has it only being gluten-free.
One thing I am excited about this year is learning about more nut-free food available. All three of the kids will be switching to a new school next year and the campus is 100% nut free! I love that this school takes special attention to make sure kids with severe allergies are learning in a safe environment. I need to up my nut-free game this next year and learn some more about gluten-free and nut-free lunch options.
If you are looking for a great place to escape the heat, you really should head to the Gluten Free and Allergen Free Expo. You will find a fun place to stay cool, meet awesome brands, learn a ton in the workshops and meet new friends! Even if you are not Gluten free or have any food allergies, chances are you know someone who is and you would benefit greatly from an expo like this. Imagine the impact you can have on your child's friend with allergies if you are knowledgeable and can host them without worry! I tell you it has been amazing with school friends parents understand and go the extra mile to make my child feel included, I want to always give the same respect back to those with other allergies.

In this day, we are not going to get away from allergies anytime soon- Why not jump in with both feet and learn how you can make a difference? Join me June 23-24th at the Renaissance Glendale Hotel & Spa (Media Center). I promise you will have fun and leave with a ton of knowledge and swag!
