Many people have food allergies and/or sensitivities. They are also finding many chronic conditions can be aggravated by things such as gluten. Our family is working on going gluten-free because I have a chronic pain condition (and most likely and auto-immune disorder) as well as Sensory Processing Disorder. Plus we have a child on the Autism Spectrum and our other two children have Sensory Processing Disorder like myself. We want to improve our health naturally, and looking closely at the ingredients and cutting out things like gluten, which has been recommended. I have to admit, it’s been a challenge, and empowerment is key.

That is why I am excited that I will be an official blogger for the Gluten Free & Allergen Friendly Expo in Chicago May 2-3, 2015! It’s an event you won’t want to miss!
What is the Gluten Free & Allergen Friendly Expo (GFAF)?
The Gluten Free & Allergen Friendly Expo is dedicated to meeting the needs of the celiac community, those with gluten and food sensitivities, auto-immune/inflammatory diseases, and autism. The public is helped through vendor expositions, educational sessions, and online resources. The manufacturers are serviced through vendor expositions, marketing programs, and consultative services.
The GFAF Expo offers an amazing opportunity to connect with gluten-free vendors, get coupons, try samples, and get discounts. Plus you get the invaluable experience of connecting with the gluten-free community and explore classes related to the gluten free and allergen-friendly lifestyle!

I am looking forward to discovering new foods that my family can enjoy together while I am on an elimination diet for my food allergic nursing child.
I am sure you will find some great new foods. I had to eliminate dairy while I was nursing our daughter due to her sensitivity, but I imagine with food allergies, you must eliminate more. I think the Expo would be great for you!
