2260 Jimmy Durante Blvd.
Del Mar, CA 92014-2216

My favorite things and tips & tricks of going to the GFAF Expo are:

1. Bring Cash because a lot of companies have “better than store prices” on things you normally buy anyway, and sometimes the wifi doesn’t work for people who use Square for credit card purchases.
2. Bring an extra bag for keeping freebies and swag (one will be given to everyone in attendance at the doors)
3. Bring a hungry belly! There are ALWAYS lots of treats to eat and some adult beverages to drink, with proper ID.
4. Prepare to take notes: on your tablet, phone, or the old fashioned pen and paper method. Most vendors will be able to educate you with info about their company, and there’s classes to attend too!
5. Plan on attending at least one of the classes. A lot can be learned at these lectures, even for those of us who are “old pros” at living the gluten free life.
6. Have enough memory on your phone or tablet to take photos of products that may be new to you, and maybe one of you with ME!
7. Bring a water bottle. It’s going to be a long day; you may need to take a few breaks by the water cooler to rehydrate.
8. Review the website for the GFAF EXPO SAN DIEGO
9. Check Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram @gfafexo and use the hashtag #GFAFEXPO for all your posts at and about the event.
10. Prepare to Have Fun! I am always so happy to meet people who are just like me in my need to be gluten free.

Back to Cali, And Expo Season Begins!

If you don’t know me on Instagram or in real life, then you probably don’t know I’m back in So. Cal. Hopefully, this time, it’s for good! My fur-kiddos and I are very happy now that we have family and friends all within walking distance (and more just miles away via freeway and side streets).

Anyway, this post is really all about Expo Season!

The GFAF Expo is just around the corner in San Diego and I will be there. I’ll be there everywhere! As a volunteer, as a worker-bee with my family’s favorite brands, and as a blogger/Instagrammer too! I cannot wait to try some new brands, and partake in a few “Gluten Free Classics” like Enjoy Life, Udi’s & Glutino, Freedom Foods (link is to the USA site, AUS site is of course Sunbutter!
Oh, and guess what? There’s going to be a company coming all the way from Japan called Bears/Kumamoto Flour Milling Co! Their website is all in Japanese, but I promise you the photos on this version, all remind me of my Japanese summer exchange program where I learned to bake in the metric system in my high school’s baking classroom where we may have actually used this very flour when we baked traditional Welsh scones! I’m super excited to connect with this Japanese company, and hopefully take a “peace” shashin (✌️
