Dallas Gluten & Allergen-Free Expo
My middle name is Austin.
I was born in Austin, Texas. But I grew up in Northampton, Massachusetts, and as far as I know I've never been to Dallas. Well, that's about to change. This weekend, I'll be speaking at the public forum at the Gluten & Allergen-Free Expo in Dallas. If you're in the area, I would love for you to come, check out all the awesome speakers and cooking classes (Brittany, my cookbook co-author, will be making her famous English Muffins for attendees to sample), and join in on my talk on food and inflammation.
Food and inflammation, you say? Oh yes...fun fun stuff. I know you know a lot about it. You know I know a lot about it. (Anyone with a food sensitivity want to stand up?) And yet, there's always more to learn. Despite not always following my own advice perfectly (although I'm trying), I've learned so much in the last year of nutrition classes at Bastyr, from my professors, my fellow classmates, and through my own research in trying to get back to optimal health. I want to share that all with you in the hope that together we can sort through all the muck and buzzwords, and determine what actually works!
And don't worry. If you can't make it to Dallas, I'll be posting a recap of my talk once I get back to Seattle. In the meantime, if you missed my post on healing through foods back in May, you can read it here.

Tomorrow, I'll be sharing a special guest post from one of my classmates, who is vegan and is learning a lot about eating gluten-free. On Friday, I'll post all the amazing entries from this month's Go Ahead Honey, It's Gluten-Free event. And after that? It's October! You know what that means...time for pumpkins! Plus a special announcement from me and a giveaway for all of you!
