It is time again for the San Diego GF & AF Expo!  Last year was my first year attending and I am excited to say I will be attending the GF&AF Expo this year as well!  My family and I are based in Las Vegas and I think it is definitely worth the 5 to 6 hour drive to San Diego to attend this event.  A few years ago my family officialy became a family comprised of multiple allergies (food, chemicals, and seasonal) as well as gluten sensitivity.  There are many things that a few of us eat that the other's can't.  It's overwhelming and stressful since food is a very big part of life.

The GF & AF Expo gives the diet restricted community a chance to learn about and try new foods, a chance to openly ask needed food questions to the actual brands, a chance to meet and talk with others about their own diet restrictions, and a chance to attend a class guided by a food and/or health expert.  There will be classes running on both days as well as demos in the venders areas.

One of the classes I am looking forward to is Managing Food Allergies on the Road. Going out with dietary restrictions for one night can be difficult, traveling with dietary restrictions is a huge issue!

At times, I feel overpowered by our food restrictions.  It's vital that my family and I pay close attention to our food and food ingredients.  It is important that we ask the right questions.  At the GF & AF Expo, I feel that we are not alone.  There are others asking the same questions I am concerned about.  The different brands and companies at the GF & AF expo are probably asked the same questions all weekend, however, they answer those questions graciously because they understand how important those answers are to each of us.

I am looking forward to being a part of the San Diego GF & AF Expo!

...and perhaps adding new and yummy foods to my family's diet!
