So awhile back I discovered that eating less gluten products were actually helping me with gaining more energy. Or, in other terms, I felt less drained of energy. Gluten is basically the protein found in wheat, rye, barley, Spelt and a few other similar grains, and not in corn, rice, or oats. However, in order to truly be sure of a product being gluten-free, you’d have to buy one that has been certified gluten-free.
If you suffer from the gluten protein found in certain foods then it’s good to take a closer look at why you’re allergic to certain types of food. The tricky thing is that the gluten ingredient is found in almost all the foods that we eat, including syrup, sauces, and food binders. It’s also found in cosmetics, packaging, and household products. If you have questions about gluten-free products, talk to a health professional and find more info online such as the Celiac Disease Foundation: https://celiac.org/live-gluten-free/glutenfreediet/what-is-gluten/.
As part of the blogger program for the GF&AF Expo #GFAFExpo in San Diego, CA, I’ll be attending the expo to learn more about gluten-free and allergen friendly products. With rising health concerns all over the country, learning more about this important health issue is important for both me and my readers. If you’re in the San Diego or Southern California area and are interested in attending the GF&AF Expo this weekend, contact me through Twitter for some free passes!
The GF&AF Expo (https://gfafexpo.com/) is the biggest gluten free and allergen friendly event in the US. Whether you’re looking for specialty products that taste great or trying to learn how to cook and bake to meet your dietary needs, the Expo is the place to be.

Oh how I wish I were in San Diego this weekend! Eat some extra treats for me :0).
Hi Kristenannmoore! The GF&AF Expo will be in several other cities this year – maybe they’ll be at one near you! 🙂
Thanks for letting me know! I’ll have to check out their website. I’m in the Seattle area so we do get some good visitors in terms of conventions and such :0).
Oh cool! Do you ever attend the Natural Products Expo? The Anaheim Conv. in So. Cal is coming up in March 🙂
