celiac disease Conventions

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

Does anyone know where the top celiac disease conventions are? Looking for a convention so I can go and sample recipes and gluten free food. I am getting discouraged very quickly because I can't find any gluten free foods I like. :huh:

Tampa, FL area or any area around. If the convention is big enough I would be willing to fly.

I do know what you're saying, I think I've tried 15 different breads till I found one that was a keeper. Aside from finding more possibilities of specialized "gluten free" food products, there are many mainstream groceries that are (already) gluten free (Stagg, Progresso, Heinz, Hormel, Kraft...).

You can find some gluten-free product lists online, or email the maker (Hormel, etc.) many now have gluten free lists. But the biggest tool I came across is the Gluten-Free Grocery Shopping Guides. I wish someone had told me about them when I was diagnosed. I hated going to the store, it took forever, reading labels, being uncertain of an ingredient...

Here are links to two of them. There's another out that can also be downloaded to your PDA device, etc., by Clan Thompson, and also a new online service http://www.zeer.com/ (don't remember what the monthly cost of that one is).

I bought the Cecilas guide, it was about $25 and worth every dollar. Put an end to standing in the aisle and reading packages!

There are also restaurant guides out there, too.

Good luck, but the good news is there are so many resources now.
