Disclaimer: I received a free entry to the GFAF Worcester Expo as an official blogger. As always, all thoughts and opinions are my own.
And a very happy Friday at that, since in less than 12 hours I will be reunited with my long lost roomie from Alabama!
I haven’t seen this gal since my dietetic internship 2 years ago, but have kept in touch through monthly snail mail playlists, sarcastic texts, and skype dates. How good it will be to reignite our snarky shenanigans if only for a weekend.
Before we set off to do all things Maine-related, I wanted to recap the second half of my awesome weekend. Let’s call it the pre-gaming before fangirling happened.
Just like last year, I lost my gluten again. And dairy. And soy. And half of my sanity.
Being on the low-FODMAP diet has not been awful, but just a little more restrictive. I’m no stranger to reading ingredients lists so that was no biggy. It’s just the fact that….well pizza exists.
Which is why I thought it only appropriate and helpful to attend the GFAF Expo again, this time in Worcester.
Since it’s an expo for all things allergen-friendly, a lot of the foods I am avoiding coincided with a lot of the common allergens (wheat, soy, dairy).
And of course I had to bring my GF GF with me.
Not only did I walk away with a bag full of swag, (especially from our generous sponsor Massel), but got to make tons more blends, even a fellow RD!
Us New Englanders know how to rock out with our gluten out. Especially with more party-sized bags of chips.
While I didn’t get to try as many samples, mainly because of my dairy avoidance, there was still plenty for me to stuff my face with. Sushi. Hard Cider. Peanut Butter made from peas. And did I mention sushi?
It was great to see such a turnout, meet some amazing people
and not have to grocery shop for another two weeks.
Thanks again GFAF Expo!
