Gluten and Allergen Free Expo in Schaumburg, Il April 12-13, 2014

Do you have food allergies and intolerances or suspect that you have food allergies? I recently saw an advertisement in the Ultra Foods sales flyer for the Gluten & Allergen Free Expo in Schaumburg, Illinois April 12-13, 2014.  Schaumburg is just outside of Chicago, Illinois.

It can be upsetting to stand inside the grocery store deciding what you can or cannot eat, reading and dissecting food labels. After all, eating is not just a occasional past time.  Food is basic to our human survival.  However, when we feel that the food we eat is fighting against us and we play this continuous food game of Russian roulette, eating becomes a chore not a pleasure.

Last year in March 2013, I had the opportunity to attend the Natural Products Expo in Los Angeles as a media blogger.  It was fun, very insightful and informative.  I was able to move forward in my quest for soy free, dairy free and gluten free eating with many ideas spinning in my head. (See photo below of my haul of some soy free bars.)

So when I saw the  advertisement yesterday, I jumped at the opportunity to apply and attend as a blogger.  This event is open to the public.  If you are struggling to make the adjustment to gluten free or allergen free eating, this event may be your answer.  Usually at events like these you can sample and taste products you have been reluctant to purchase.
