Gluten Free and Allergy Friendly Expo 2017

Mark your calendars!  April 22 and 23rd in Schaumburg, IL for the Gluten Free and Allergy Friendly Expo!  I will be there as an official blogger, posting lots of pics and info on all the great GF/AF finds.  I can’t wait to see what is new this year! There are just so many great new products to discover. The event is being held at the Schaumburg Convention Center, Saturday and Sunday.  Come down for some great classes and a huge exhibit with lots of food and products to sample.  If you can’t make it, be sure to follow me right here on the blog, or on facebook for updates.

I hope to see you there, so much so that I am offering some free tickets!   Enter to win a one day pass by commenting on your favorite allergy friendly or gluten free snack!  Five winners will be chosen at random.



Hi, I am Rachael and I want to share my personal experiences with food, food allergies, picky eating and feeding a family.  Professionally, I am a registered dietitian working in private practice in Northern Illinois.  Personally, I am a wife and mother to four children ages 9, 8, 6 and 4.  Three of our four children have food allergies which has shaped our mealtimes.  I hope to help those dealing with food allergies or intolerance live full lives with nourishing food.  I also know the many other factors affecting mealtimes with families.  From finding time in our busy schedules to all sit down together to dealing with picky eating, I understand.

Thanks for checking in with me and come back soon for my post on setting up positive mealtimes.

Cheers- Rachael
