Healthy Living & Gluten Free Expo
At The Healthy Living & Gluten Free Expo, dozens of gluten-free vendors and wellness consultants share their insights on the benefits of a gluten-free lifestyle—especially for those who suffer from celiac disease, gluten intolerance, and other auto-immune disorders. Visitors can peruse the offerings of businesses such as Gluten Free Nana and Legit Pizza, or glean knowledge from speakers on topics such as how a gluten-free diet can help prevent cancer. Cooking demonstrations are also a big part of the expo, showing crowds how to whip up gourmet gluten-free meals.
