Gluten-Free Expo, 2018!

I haven’t been posting much lately. Life is busy. And then I went ahead and got me a claw…

Being the graceful person that I am, I fell while jogging and broke my pinky. It’s hard to type without being able to use my wrist, so I have to be short and sweet.

I’m here to tell you that Gluten-Free Expo is coming to San Diego again! V and I cannot wait to go. I can’t tell you how amazing it is to be in a place where every single thing is safe for V to eat. Now that we are veteran Expo-goers, let me share some tips with you.

  1. Don’t pay full price! Use this code to get 20% off: ADVANCE
  2. Wear comfortable shoes and be prepared for a lot of walking.
  3. Come hungry! So many yummy foods to taste.
  4. If you have T1D, be prepared to do some serious guesswork and use a LOT of insulin. Little bites here and there add up quickly to a metric ton of carbs. You are likely going to underestimate them. Be prepared to dose as you go. If you have a pump, extending your bolus may be a good strategy. Give yourself a hefty dose upfront and spread out the rest over a few hours. You can always cancel extended bolus if it’s too much.
  5. The Expo is so much more than food samples. There are classes and presentations galore. Check out the schedule and attend some. You may find these programs especially beneficial if you are new to GF life.

Don’t live in or near San Diego? There may be an Expo coming to your town. Check it out and go.

Last but not least, I’ll leave you with a photo of an amazing GF cake made by our recent 16-year-old house guest. (Focus on the cake. Ignore ugly grout please.)

100% GF. 150% amazing. And yes, it’s a little boozy too!

Disclaimer: As an official blogger, I am expected to promote the Expo in my blog. I was also provided with complimentary entry tickets. All opinions are mine.

P.S. I was planning on going to and writing about the expo well before being selected as an official blogger. Because it’s awesome.

P.P.S. I am not expected to write a review/post-expo post. But you can bet I’ll be doing it anyway!
