I am attending GFAF Expo as a Blogger. I was offered this giveaway for my blog. All opinions are mine.

So, it's been 17 months since I changed the foods that I consume so that they don't contribute to inflammation in my body. Which, in turn, causes constant pain and swelling that effects my ability to do simple things, like walk.
There are some days that are easier than others. I have to own up to that. Some days, oh man, I just really want a cheeseburger. But, I know that it's gong to hurt. Like, physically hurt me and cause me pain if I consume it. So, I don't and I know that there are better options for me out there. I still subscribe to the belief that food is meant to nourish and sustain.
I continue to abstain from all forms of gluten, dairy, red meat and caffeine. I sill do not choose to eat processed foods of any kind. I do eat whole soy (tofu) sparingly, but the use of soy sauce and soy additives are avoided.
I'm still on a quest to find ways to become better informed about food choices as I walk this path, though. There is so much information out there!
I learned a lot at last years Gluten Free & Allergen Friendly Expo. I attended the classes that they offered, talked to the exhibitors and sponsors who were on site, and gathered tons of great information and samples to try out, not only for me, but also my family.
I'm excited about attending the Gluten Free & Allergen Friendly Expo again this year. I get to surround myself with other like-minded individuals, learn about possible food options that may be out there for me to try, to get as much valuable information as possible so that I can make informed food buying decision.
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."
