Gluten-Free Allergen Friendly Expo 2016

My enthusiasm is heightening as I look forward to the Gluten Free and Allergen Friendly Expo coming back to Schaumburg, IL (Chicago) May 14 and 15, 2016. 

This year, like 2015, I have the opportunity to attend as an Official Blogger. This time last year I was transitioning gluten out of my diet. I have been basically gluten free for over a year, however, I have slipped off the wagon, so to speak, mainly due to difficulty finding egg-free gluten free bread and some other gluten free items especially when traveling.

Since the elimination of gluten, I have noticed the difference in the way this gluten intolerance has on attacking my muscles, joints and my gut which includes less intestinal infractions. 

Besides the "free" samples at the Expo my focus this year is on learning more from the classes about diet and supporting a healthy immune system. A few of the classes are “Can your Food Allergy or Gluten-Free Diet Cause Other Health Problems?","Sneaking Ancient Grains into Everyday Life", and "How to Use the Low-FODMAP Diet to Ease Symptoms of IBS".


I have two (2) TICKETS* as a GIVEAWAY. Leave a comment and let me know if you're interested in attending the Expo.
