The Gluten-free & Allergen Friendly Expo (GFAF Expo), is a wonderful small event to attend if your’re new to gluten-free living. While not so beneficial for veterans, it’s a safe place to learn about some big name and small name brands, companies, and maybe even learn something new at the speaking sessions they hold throughout the weekend long expo. This was my second time ever going to the GFAF Expo, this years as an official blog ambassador. While it was smaller than 2 years ago (not sure why), there were still a few highlights and some fun products I want to share with you all!
The best Gluten-Free & Allergen-Friendly expo where celiacs, gluten & food allergic, autoimmune suffers alike can gather for a safe consumer to brand in-person experience! The GFAF Expo is the chance to connect with manufacturers, educators, services, and the community as a whole!
I am so excited to be an official blog ambassador for the GFAF Expo this year! If you’re a very long-time reader, you’ll remember that I attended the expo 2 years ago and blogged about it here. It was the first “foodie” expo I’d ever attended as it’s rare you can find any type of expo or conference close to New Jersey! I loved it though and was sad I couldn’t attend last year, but this year I am able to get up there again as well as be an ambassador. (Finally those business cards will com in handy!)
Anyway, if you don’t know what the GFAF Expo is, let me tell you! “The GFAF Expos are the largest and fastest growing special diet consumer events in the US. Started in 2007, the events are professionally managed and have expanded from one to seven cities throughout the United States. In addition to meeting the needs of the Celiac community, the Expo welcomes those with gluten sensitivities, auto-immune/inflammatory diseases and autism.”Read More
I’ve got to be honest with you. This has been on my mind recently and I think we should all discuss it. A few weeks ago I wrote a review for Vega’s new Sport Performance Protein. It was terrible, and I told you all that. I wasn’t scared and I wanted you all to know my honest thoughts; that is the point of reviews, right? I received the protein to try though my ambassadorship with Fitapproach as a SweatPink ambassador. I had actually just done another review for Vega on their reformulated bar products and had a much better experience with those. For both reviews I was honest and gave me true thoughts and feelings about the products. I didn’t make anything up, I wrote and honest review.
Later that week when all the ambassadors were posting their reviews (which is really boring and annoying, but that is a whole other post in itself), an ambassador asked if she should still do her review even though she didn’t like her product either. I chimed in and told her about mine and how I still wrote about the product even though I did have anything good to say.Read More
