This past Saturday, I attended my first ever COMPLETELY GLUTEN FREE event. The GFAF Wellness Expo took place in Durham, and I was so excited to go! While I don’t tend to eat a lot of cookies and cakes, I was still excited to be in an entire room where I could eat ANYTHING!
Some of my personal Gluten Free Favorites were there:
Local Durham Bakery: DaisyCakes
Best gluten free cupcakes HANDS DOWN! But if you’ve been reading this blog for long…then you already knew that!
Cheenies Brazilian Bread was at the event. I didn’t realize they were produced right here in Durham!
I LOVED their display of ideas for their little rolls! These would be positively adorable at any party or social event! You guys know how I feel about tiny foods! Love them!
Local Soup Connoisseurs Slim on Soup were at the event.
I LOVE their soups! I buy them at the South Durham Farmer’s Market, and love to take them for lunch.
Not for lunch but still delicious….
Simple YET delicious gluten free quesadillas. I may or may not have had a few of these! It was my first time trying the Spinach Tortillas and I liked them.
There were also a few booths featuring brands that I had never even heard of before! Their products were fantastic, and I’m excited to share them with you!
Luce’s Gluten Free Artisan Bread – Gluten Free, Dairy Free, Egg Free, Nut Free
AND crazy good! Get this, all you add to the mix: WATER. That’s it!
And the result? LEGIT crusty bread! I don’t know how this works….or why it works….maybe it’s magic. Who cares. It’s DELICIOUS! Crusty on the outside, soft and doughy on the inside. I can’t wait to try making this at home!
Moon Rabbit Foods Mixes. Made with Cassava Flour, I couldn’t believe how light and fluffy the yellow cake was!
Yum! Plus they’re local here to NC; love that!
Glutino certainly isn’t a new to me company, but I was excited to see a new product in person!
Yep, their new pancake mix that comes in a convenient shaker bottle.Perfect for travelling (camping!) or just a quick morning. First, I couldn’t believe it when I watched the pancake mix actually BUBBLE on the griddle! And the end result was a soft and fluffy pancake. Very impressed Glutino!
My favorite find of the event: Water Kefir from Grub in Wilmington, NC! And I can’t wait to share that with you tomorrow!
