GFFAFest - Gluten Free Food Allergy Fest Austin Highlights

I had a wonderful experience at the Gluten-free Food Allergy Fest in Austin, TX less than a couple of weeks ago and below you can read all about my highlights from the Fest.

I hope after reading this, you will be excited to attend a GFFAFest near you! They are valuable in so many ways! If you are a parent of child or children with celiac disease and/or food allergies, I would encourage you to bring them so they can try samples and have their own bag of gluten-free goodies to take home as well.

 HIGHLIGHTS from the GFFAFest:

  • TONS of gluten-free products to bring home and share!

  • Beanfields Pico De Gallo Chips were my FAV!!
  • Ebenezor Foods Cinnamon Roll, I could not get enough of.
  • Skinny Pop - Another delicious gluten-free snack.
  • Marilyn's Gluten-Free Gourmet - her Bubble Bread Mix is wonderful! 
  • Nogii - yummy snacks for Jack!
  • Glutino - introduced their NEW Caramel covered pretzels!! SOOO GOOD!
  • Sweet Debbie's Organic Treats - I LOVE this book from Debbie Adler, baker to the stars - Los Angeles bakery serving up delicious allergy free & vegan recipes
  • Enjoy Life Foods - not pictured, but they ALWAYS have a wonderful display of goodies to share 
  • Power Pasta - delicious black bean and red lentil pasta!
  • Sweet & Simple Gluten-Free Baking - Chrystal Carver shares her delicious recipes with u
  • I can't say enough great things about Red Apple Lipstick, I love their products!! I love their "Cabernet Kiss" and "Brazen Raisin" lip glosses as well as their "Oh La La" Lipstick! I could hang out at their booth all day! Thanks Jay, Andrea and Keith! :)

  • My Life with Food Allergies Team is a part of the GFFAFest and we share our websites with attendees in hopes that we can offer help and guidance living with celiac disease and food allergies.
Erica - Celiac and the Beast, Cindy - Vegetarian Mamma, Me,
Pam - I'm a Celiac and Chrystal Carver - Gluten-Free Palate

  • Here's Jules Shepard from GFJules, showing attendees how to make gluten-free tortillas. There are numerous lectures and demonstrations throughout the day - so make sure to check them out! Check out Tampa/Lakeland's line-up of presenters coming up this weekend.

I could go on and on how fabulous this 2 day GFFAFest was, but I think you get an idea of what you take away from attending one of these events.
