Giveaway: Tickets to the Gluten-free Living Edmonton Health Show

The Gluten Free Living Edmonton Health Show is Nov. 3, 2013.
The Gluten Free Living Edmonton Health Show is Nov. 3, 2013.

According to the Canadian Celiac Association, 1 in 100 Canadians have celiac disease and many more suffer from gluten sensitivities. More and more people are going ‘gluten-free’ – looking for restaurants that offer gluten-free food and dabbling into their own gluten-free recipes at home.

The Gluten-Free Living Edmonton Health Show this Sunday, Nov. 3, is here to help with that!

Show organizers have given me two pairs of tickets to give away!

From the website:

With hundreds of top brands and unique products not commonly found, inspirational speakers, free lectures with industry educators and keynote speakers, free cooking demos, health advice and dozens of ways to get in shape, the Edmonton Health Show is guaranteed to make you feel revitalized, beautiful, fit and healthy.

Plus – there are free food samples. ;)

    I would love to go to this. New to the gluten-free life and find it difficult sometimes. As for what I do now, green smoothies every morning, at least 2L water daily and try to make most food at home so we have more control over it.

    My husband and I are relatively new to wheat-free / gluten-free and are still discovering products as well as the ins and outs of living this way. We gave switched breads and pastas to the GF kind. Day to day we eat healthy meals, try to drink enough water and walk. Would love to attend this event!

    We juice, eat smoothies, stretch and rest. I am very fortunate to have a husband that embraces the fact that I have a chronic illness and adjusts his life so we cam be pur best together…. This includes eating a lot of vegan meals, going to bed early, and most recently a juice cleanse. I would love to attend a gf event with my husband and not have to do the can I eat itagical dance of label interpretation.

    My 9 year old son is celiac and has been recently diagnosed. We are still trying to find our way around eating gluten free and also maintain a healthy lifestyle. We eat low glycemic index food and cutting our refined sugars. Its hard to eat low glycemic foods since many products are made from white rice flours and white potato flours. I would like a chance to see what other products are available that we are not yet made aware of.

    Re-writing Our Family Cookbook: Going gluten-free after a celiac Dx

    I grew up with my mom making homemade meals, using the Canada Food Guide as a resource. Since leaving my parents’ home I have collected the favorite recipes from both my husbands’ and my families. This project has taken me 12 years, resulting in a go-to binder for fail-proof wholesome and delicious family meals.

    Over the past year I began converting my binder version to a digital recipe book in the cloud. Then two weeks ago our 6yo son was diagnosed celiac. There were no baby steps, it was a slam-dunk immersion into a foreign world of nutrition.. going gluten-free.

    During these past two weeks I have met with the dietician, researched online, consulted with friends, cried to my mom, and have begun creating a supportive and encouraging community to help as I’m re-writing our family cookbook.

    Costco has awesome gluten free pasta! We walk for 20 minutes during our lunch break at work. I am looking forward to the Gluten Free Living Health Show on Sunday.

  • Monica Munro

    I’m so glad I found this site tonight–perfect timing to be able to go to the GF Living Edmonton Health Show on Sunday! Yay! I’ve cut out gluten from my diet, I drink lots of water, walk 2-3 hours a day, eat lots of veggies and fruit. It’s time to learn about the GF community in Edmonton so I’m thrilled to find out about the show on Sunday! Thank you for this opportunity to win free tickets!

  • Janet Cooper

    I try to eat healthy and drink lots of water daily. I have found that breads and dairy make me feel sluggish and bloated, so would love to learn
    more about gluten free and heathy alternatives Janet. Klcooper @ shaw.ca

  • Sunday at the @Cat_Cafe_On_Whyte! 😻💚 My first time back since they opened in April. So happy to see that since then—80 cats have been adopted, they’ve expanded their drinks & pastry menu (and made it unlimited drinks for the hour), added merchandise, and the place was packed! #purrfect

  • Ventured north for handmade pizza 🍕 and pasta 🍝 at @saccomannos1965! Delicious food at really good prices from this family-run business (since 1965!) They just held a grand re-opening in December. Blog post soon! We also discovered a huge fenced in dog park in this area. 🐶 Can’t wait to come back to try more dishes and take the pups to the park. 😊

  • I came for the #Instagrammable Skating Rink. 💕 I think that probably sounds silly, but I do love how “Instagrammable” spaces can encourage people to #ExploreEdmonton! Had a lovely double date at the lovely Victoria Park Oval & Freezeway with @mikethyking, @littlmissandrea & Gordon! ⛸👯‍♀️👯‍♂️

  • Ohhhhh so many feelings. ❤️ I had such an incredible experience watching @traviswall’s @shapingsoundco AND finally meeting Travis! Fun fact: I used to run a fan page for Travis back during his early #SoYouThinkYouCanDance days. He said he used to check the page for updates on himself, lol. 😂❤️ Thank you to the @albertaballetcanada for inviting me to see this phenomenal show with just the most ridiculously talented dancers! 💃🏻🕺 and for asking me to host the pre-show #DanceTalks Q&A. 🤓 Thanks to @nikolevallins for arranging the meet & greet 📸 and thanks to my old friend @jasmine.topham for coming & sharing in the #SYTYCD love! So happy. ❤️

  • When it’s -32C out ☃️, there’s no better food choice. 🍜 I warm right up with my mom’s pho at @KingNoodleHouse! (and you can too! 😉) I’m also excited to share that @KingNoodleHouse is participating in Edmonton’s first-ever #ChinatownDiningWeek! We’re offering a $15 two-course dinner option - your choice of a large bowl of pho + a spring roll & grilled pork balls platter. There are 4 other great restaurants in the area participating too. Learn more on my blog! (link in bio 👩🏻‍💻)

  • I’m such a sucker for eggs on anything—especially on poutine—ESPECIALLY with shoestring skinny fries. 😍 This is The Cure from @centralsocialhall, with red wine gravy, avocado, bacon and a roasted poblano + white cheddar sauce. It’s eggcellent! 🍳🍟😋
