Gluten Free goodness awaits all GF New Englanders this weekend. Why? Because it’s the Gluten & Allergen Free Expo in Springfield, MA! And that means lots of gluten free samples, new products and like-minded folks all under one great big happy gluten-free roof.
Free safe gluten free goodies?? As our 10-year-old says, “Awwwwww, yea, baby…!!!
I attended the Orlando GIG Expo a few years back and it was amazing. It was so large and had great speakers and classes. I learned so much, met so many amazing people and, of course, ate some great safe gluten-free foods. It was amazing to see how many people were dealing with exactly what I was going through. That was the first time I felt like I wasn’t alone in my gluten free journey.
I’m even more excited for the Springfield Gluten & Allergen Free Expo. Last year we learned that our son inherited my Celiac, so we’re excited to keep abreast of all the new gluten-free developments. Things have changed so much in the past few years – and are still constantly changing – so I’m sure that I’ll learn a TON of new GF stuff at the Gluten & Allergen Free Expo!
So this weekend I’m bringing the whole family so we can all benefit. Even though the whole house has been gluten-free for nearly five years, we can all learn about and find new gluten free things at the Expo. I can’t wait to share with our son that realization I had the first time I attended a gluten-free convention: there are lots of gluten-free people out there! Yay!
I’m really looking forward to a couple of the classes, especially Dr. Giammarino’s “Healing the Gut from Food Allergies and Sensitivities.” My Celiac coupled with my dairy, yeast and egg allergies and 63 additional ALCAT food sensitivities means my gut – well, needless to say, it needs some healin’! So first thing Saturday morning, while my 10-year-old son and husband go to out sampling goods from the 150+ vendors on the show floor, I’ll be hopefully learning some new things from Dr. Giammarino.
The Springfield Gluten & Allergen Free Expo is being held at MassMutual Center this coming Saturday and Sunday, Oct 25-26, from 9am to 3pm. Oh! And if you buy tickets before the Expo begins, you can save some $$! Click here to save on tickets to the Gluten & Allergen Free Expo
And if you’re planning on going, let me know and maybe we can arrange a meetup! Email me and let me know when you’re going and a number I can text you at during the show (I’ve tried the email only meetings and they never work… It seems like it’s text or nothing for me during any kind of big shows.) I hope to see you there!!
