Last weekend I had the joy of attending the Gluten Free & Allergen Free Expo in San Diego. This is my second year attending and it topped last year, which I didn't think was possible. This is my favorite event to attend because they really take care of the bloggers, as well as the event attendees. B Free Foods held a blogger breakfast before the expo opened and I enjoyed getting to know the other bloggers attending the event and getting to know about B Free Foods more.
This year the event was presented by Udi's and Glutino. Along with aisles of vendors with samples of gluten Free foods, the expo also offered classes for attendees to expand their knowledge of gluten Free living. Some of these classes included "Gluten beyond the gut!" Which talked about glutens affect on organs and tissues, and "traveling safely with allergies." I was excited to see Tiffany Hinton presenting on inflammation because I met her last year at the expo and her story is eye opening.
My favorite vendors at the event included Brianna's salad dressing, spiked seltzer, Spinato's Pizza, and Aleia's. In the coming weeks I will be writing about specific vendors that were at the event that i was impressed with, including some of these listed.
Here are some photos from the day, along with all the delicious swag I was sent home with! My favorite thing of all from the expo is the peanut butter cookie from Aleia's gluten free!
