Happy Sunday. 🙂 I had a great time today at the Gluten Free and Non-GMO Expo in Vancouver. Did anyone else attend? This is my first time going and I was impressed with all of the free samples and friendly people. I am glad that I went hungry because I tried almost every kind of gluten free cookie, chip, bread, beer and pasta there was…..!
One must keep in mind that just because something is gluten free does not necessarily mean that it’s healthy, but there was definlty some great healthy options. I love the fact that these are local companies and I can support them. Since starting my elimination diet I have had a hard time finding a gluten free bread that I love that is not loaded with sugar and other nasty ingredients. After trying several different breads today I think I might have a few more tasty options.
There were over 100 vendors sampling products at the convention. Some I liked more than others. 😉 I will be doing a separate blog post and featuring a few of my favourites. I can’t say that I will always eat gluten free but I think I’m going to keep “avoiding” it as it seems to make my tummy happy. I must admit I never thought much about gluten being in alcohol. Gluten is found in many different kinds of spirits and beer. I had no idea that vodka had gluten in it…..you learn something new everyday. I did enjoy sampling some great tasting local gluten-free beer, but I think I will stick to my gluten free wine. 🙂
