We made it through another amazing Gluten & Allergen Free Expo. So many great gluten-free products to review. The venue was very different this year. We missed some of the GF companies from last year but said “hello” to some new faces in the GF food world. Below you will see me amongst the official blogging team for the GFAF Expo.
Let me walk you through the process of transitioning you or your child(ren) to a gluten and dairy free life style. I will teach you how to identify the different forms of gluten and dairy. They hide in many foods! Learn about all the latest gluten and dairy free products on the market that will allow you to ease into the diet. I will also brief you on the other issue to be concerned about including the importance of organic foods, GMO’s (genetically modified organisms), additives, preservatives and other toxic substances.
I am a Wellness Coach and “warrior mom” of three children. I have been following a gluten and dairy-free diet since 2007. I have experienced amazing results losing over 60 pounds and a whole host of health issues along the way. My son on the autism spectrum has been on the diet since 2009 and it has changed the course of his life. He is now considered “recovered.” As a Wellness Coach, I am passionate about helping others transition to a gluten and dairy-free lifestyle.
