When someone is first diagnosed with Celiac’s Disease or they learn that they are gluten-intolerant, it can feel like a death sentence. No more sandwiches. No more birthday cake. No more donuts at work. And all of sudden, groceries cost three times what they used to and they find themselves spending hours at the grocery store, carefully checking each and every label. And going out to a restaurant with friends and family? Nope, not even an option.
But what if instead of spending your life with an ever-increasing list of ‘can’t eats’, what if your world was completely gluten-free for one day? And what if you walked away from that one day with a bag full of tasty breads, recipes for your favorite home-cooked meals, a whole list of options for eating out and the hope that life could be not only what is once was, but even better?
My Gluten Free World Expo seeks to change the idea that the gluten-free lifestyle is one of ‘can’t’s. A Gluten Free World can be tasty. It can be healthy. It can be fun! You don’t have to spend your life seeking out poor substitutions for your favorite foods and products.
What if you could sample pizza, ethnic foods, bakery products and more in one day? You’d leave with a whole list of new and safe restaurants to try – places to meet your girlfriends for coffee, places to join your work friends for lunch, places you could pick up take-out on your way home.
What if you could also purchase gluten-free cookbooks, try allergy safe cosmetics, visit with specialists like doctors and life coaches, enter to win giveaways and enjoy lunch? Can you imagine a more wonderful day? Come join us and see how amazing your Gluten Free World can be!
