GF/ AF Expo Schaumburg

What a great turnout for the Gluten Free and Allergy Free Expo in Schaumburg today! I would have to say 90% of the people took advantage of the great deal on Groupon for $15 for 2 people for the entire weekend. I know I did! #gfafexpo


So here’s just a few of the vendors I sampled and enjoyed. I will post more tomorrow on day #2.

Blackberry Market

Right in the heart of the quaint little downtown area of Glen Ellyn, Il. this cute little Breakfast spot is the perfect destination for a healthy bowl of steel cut oats with Black Berries and Walnuts. For only $3.50 this is a great alternative to fast food. Only downfall was it was a 20 minute wait with only a handful of customers seated and 7 employees behind the counter. 

Definitely would still recommend this spot because of the many food and drink options and very affordable prices.

NY Famous Pizza & Falafel Grill

Paneer Tikka, basmati rice and falafel for a late lunch. Reminds me of the texture of French toastšŸ˜€
Nice staff. Not sure if they’d ever dealt with someone with allergies before but they accomidated nicely. I wanted spicy pili pili but it had soy. So we opted for just spicy sauce instead. I was happy with it. 

$9 Sunday meal 

(enough for 2 meals for me)
They also had a fresh smoothie bar with a lot of fun healthy options.something to check out next time.

Being a home cookĀ also IĀ focus a lot on Gluten free and allergy free meals for my family so I will be posting some shopping trips for affordable ingredients as well.
