Last year I found out about a conference called the Gluten Free Allergy Free Expo and did a little research. It looked like such an amazing gathering of resources and an opportunity to explore my food options which, naturally, benefits you guys too, since my little food adventures invariably end up on this blog.
I signed up to be an “official blogger” so I could get the real scoop on the expo, and I’m so glad I did! The sheer amount of vendors there is going to keep the energy high and the finds exciting! I keep finding pictures, blogs, and tweets from people who have gone who not only look like they’re having fun, trying new products, and getting coupons to try others, but are changing their quality of life for the better!
One of the perks of being an official blogger is that I get to pass this experience on to you all through my tweets (follow me @tamaralee21, #gfafexpo), Instagram (potentialredcard21), on here, AND through giving you a discount on tickets so you can experience it firsthand! Over there —-> is a banner with a coupon code on it for 35% off the $15 or $25 tickets.
I just bought my hotel on Friday, and they’re filling up fast, so book yours soon! I’d really love to meet and hang out if you’re going to be at the Chicago Expo, so let me know! Check out the class schedule below!
