GF&AF Expo Recap


On Saturday I attended the Gluten Free & Allergen Free (GFAF) Expo in Secacus, NJ as an Official Blogger and such a good time! The GFAF Expo covers all things gluten free and allergy free, and it’s actually the largest expo of its kind in the US! This my first time attending the expo and I can’t wait to share with you all the new products, and new brands, I tried. 


I started the day off meeting other bloggers and meeting one sponsor of the expo, Massel.  Massel makes gluten free stocks and bouillon cubes that are full of flavor, healthy, easy to use, and great value for money. When the Massel team started making bouillon back in the 1980s, they were committed to making instant bouillon as healthy as possible. So all Massel products have been gluten free from the very beginning. And you would never guess that the Beef Style bouillon and Chicken Style bouillon are VEGAN too, made using only top quality vegetable ingredients. 


I love expos because I usually see some of my favorite brands sampling NEW products and it’s also a great place to discover and try new, and sometimes local, companies. IMG_2689

Here are some of the highlights from the show:


Two of Freedom Foods newest cereals

Freedom Foods, an Australian company, makes allergen-free (free from gluten, wheat, dairy, nuts, soy, sesame and GMO’s) cereals and granola bars. Freedom Foods’ core line of breakfast cereals and oat bars are available in a wide range of flavors that offer not only allergen-free safety, but, better nutrition and taste. More importantly, they use clean and recognizable ingredients so you won’t feel guilty eating as you nosh. Freedom Foods is launching new cereals this fall; Fruity Rainbow Rocks, All Around gOodness, and All Around gOodness maple flavored.


Gluten Free Territory, a family run dedicated gluten free and nut free bakery that specialize in delicious brownies and cookies, wins my vote for best new cookie. The coconut macaroon with dulce de leche and vegan brownie were beyond delicious and I really hope to see this brand in stores soon. The cookies are much better than many leading name brands we see all over the shelves. 

Nona lim produces naturally detoxifying soups, broths and noodles. An exotic combination of fresh vegetables, herbs, and spices make up Nona Lim’s fresh broth line. Each broth is simmered for hours, creating the perfect base for your bowl of noodles. Made with only the purest ingredients and nothing more – no additives like hydrolyzed yeast or flavor enhancers, no preservatives, and nothing inflammatory. Broths can be used alone, or paired with any of the Nona Lim noodles for a taste of Asia right at home. At the show they were giving out samples of flavorful pho. 


Enlightened was sampling it’s new line of crunchy and savory snacks –Roasted Broad Beans. Made from roasted broad beans, a true superfood, ENLIGHTENED Crisps are a fantastic anytime snack. Whether you’re craving sweet, salty, or both, ENLIGHTENED’s got you covered. 

Aleias offers 10 different types of cookies!

Aleias offers 10 different types of cookies!

Next month is Thanksgiving and I’ve got a great, certified gluten free stuffing for you to try from Aleia’s. Alexa’s also makes cookies, bread crumbs, panko, croutons, and breads.

My Dads Cookies

My Dads Cookies

My Dad’s Cookies was started for children, who have Celiac and gives them options to eat there favorite cookies as there friends. The cookies look and taste as the ones that they miss eating. The best cookie I tried from them was the Black and White cookie, not an easy gluten free find, ever. This Sponge-cake like cookie is covered with half vanilla half chocolate icing and you won’t even miss the gluten. 


Mike’s Hard products have been crafter to remove gluten free years. All Mike’s products in the United States now carry a Crafted to Remove Gluten seal on their packaging, a way to distinguish and communicate about their beverages. Their process removes gluten to less than 5 ppm. So, while mike’s is crafted to remove gluten, they cannot say it is 100% gluten free. 


Canyon Bakehouse is one of the top rated national gluten-free bread companies. They are helping people Love Bread Again by offer a diverse line of gluten free and vegan bread products, including breads, bagels, brownie bites, focaccia, hamburger bums and hotdog buns. The new Everything Bagels is a unique combination of soft, chewy texture with undeniably delicious flavor, any way you slice it. Made with a savory blend of garlic, onion, poppy and sunflower seeds, Canyon Bakehouse won my vote for best gluten free bagel at the expo. 


Brownies made with beans?! Now that is Pure Genius! These amazing gluten free, vegan brownies and blondies are packed with protein and fiber, and contain under 200 rich, satisfying calories.  Made in an allergen free facility, Pure Genius products are nut-free, soy-free, non-GMO, and soon-to-be kosher-certified. You can’t even tell that the brownies are made from black beans and the blondies are made from chickpeas. I suggest you try this Brooklyn-based product asap!  

Living Nows new

Living Now’s newest products include quinoa and quinoa-based pastas

Living Now is a brand of great-tasting, allergy-friendly foods. Their products are  produced in a dedicated, certified gluten-free, allergy-friendly, Kosher facility. In addition to their baking mixes, Living Now now offers a range of quinoa products. 


ProTings is a healthy protein-packed snack catering to health-conscious individuals looking to rethink the way they snack! Each serving of these pea protein-based baked crisps contains 15 grams of protein. The flavors are strong and the crunch is satisfying. 



There were so many great products at the Expo (over 150 brands in all!) and I highly recommend anyone with a food allergy or intolerance to attend the expo. The GF&AF Expo travels to 7 different cities in US throughout the year, so even if you don’t live in the New York/New Jersey area, there might be an expo near you

Tru Chocolate Dark Chocolate Wafers


Today I want to introduce you to a company I’ve recently learned about – TRŪ Chocolate®, the world’s healthiest Chocolate. The team at Tru Chocolate spent years developing, creating, and perfecting the most delicious and healthy dark chocolate products on the planet. I LOVE chocolate, so when I find an company that makes a good chocolate, with healthy ingredients, I just can’t resist! 


In today’s modern food production, the promotion of genetically modified foods and corn syrup laden products has become rampant. A bi-product of this is our desire to consume unhealthy and ultimately harmful snack products. Our bodies have been tricked into craving the absolute opposite of what we should be fueling ourselves with. The result has been food addictions, rampant obesity, and a pandemic of pre-diabetes and type 2 diabetes. Almost one half of the US population has been affected in this manner. However, don’t lose hope – there is some good news; TRŪ Chocolate® is good for your entire body!

Most chocolates on the market (think, check out aisle at the grocery store) are loaded with high amounts of sugar, artificial fillers, gluten, and cheap cocoa substitutes, all which can lead to stomach aches and pain. Well, thankfully Tru Chocolate has none of that. Tru Chocolate is organic, made without added sugar, corn syrup or fructose, and free of both dairy and gluten. 


Sweetened with dentist recommended xylitol from the birch bark of naturally grown Canadian birch trees. TRŪ Chocolate® is also enhanced with a proprietary phytonutrient blend, and gives you the pure taste of an all-natural, ultra-high quality healthy chocolate.


I recently tried Tru Chocolate Sold Dark Chocolate Wafers; the ultimate healthy chocolate. Made from only the finest organic, fair trade cocoa, blended with healthy ingredients – these healthy chocolates are guaranteed to love you back as much as you love them! Not only are these healthier than most chocolates, they also have great flavor and texture. It’s smooth, rich and melts in my mouth.

This wafer is made with 72% dark chocolate and is a perfect on-the-go size that comes individually wrapped so you can take them with you anywhere and eat one (or two) at anytime.  

You can purchase Tru Chocolate Dark Chocolate Wafers online starting at $12.99 for a 4 oz bag. Use promo code october30 for 30% off your order (valid until October, 31, 2015). 


Disclaimer: I received one or more of the products mentioned above for free.  Regardless, I only recommend products or services I use personally and believe will be good for my readers. I was not paid to write this review.

Celebrating National Vegetarian Day with Nate’s Mediterranean Bites

Today is National Vegetarian Day and what better way to celebrate than with a new line of gluten free, vegetarian Mediterranean Bites?! 


ADF Foods, manufacturer of organic, non-GMO, vegetarian and gluten-free frozen foods, recently unveiled a line of vegetarian falafel called Nate’s Mediterranean Bites. Nate’s Mediterranean Bites capture the true essence of delicious and mouthwatering bites with enticing tzatziki sauce, packed in a convenient and portable, sleek and re-sealable bags that provide maximum freshness. These falafel-like bites are a perfect blend of garbanzo beans, spices and herbs, with flavors including Garlic & Pesto, Kale, Southwestern and Sweet Potato. 

Nate’s Mediterranean Bites are non-GMO Project Verified, vegetarian, gluten-free and are packed with fiber and protein. You can prepare the frozen falafel many ways – in the oven, microwave, fryer, or you can just thaw them out and eat them at room temperature because they are already fully-cooked.  I chose to bake mine in the oven at 250F for 10-12 minutes. Each bag of falafel comes with a container of frozen tzatziki sauce that gets a zap in the microwave for about 45 seconds and can be served warm or chilled. 

FullSizeRender (2)

If I had to pick a favorite it would be Southwestern and Kale. The Southwestern bites have a spicy-kick (I found them to be much spicier than Jeremy did!).  The kale has a delicious fresh greens taste with a hint of parsley. The Garlic & Pesto are also quite good, with a strong pesto flavor and slight garlicky after taste. The Sweet Potato bites are sweet and have a strong cinnamon flavor; not my favorite. 

 The texture was spot on for falafel, especially for ones that have been frozen and then baked. The outside maintained a slight bit of crispiness, while the inside was soft and moist, not dry at all like one would expect. 

Nate’s Mediterranean Bites products are available nationally at supermarkets and natural food stores and retail for $4.99. Look for them in the frozen food section of the natural products area. Find a retail location nearest you here

Cran-Gyn™ contains cranberry extract and D-mannose (a naturally occurring sugar extracted from Birch trees), which works to inhibit E-coli related urinary tract issues, among other benefits.
