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.

  • Jennifer Harrison

    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

  • Eep. 💕 For my birthday, @mikethyking commissioned this cartoon portrait of our family and it is PERFECT!! 🐶🐶🐱🐱 Thank you @mikeanthony84 for capturing the personalities of our family so well 🙏🏻 from @mikethyking's love of pizza through his shirt, to Artie's goofiness and Thor's regalness. 😌 Even my leg pop and the pet collars are perfect!! 😻 I had wanted an illustrated family portrait for some time and had been looking for the perfect artist / style. When I discovered Mike Anthony (who is local too!!) I had his work on my "wish list" for a long time and am thrilled to hang this in our home now! ❤️ I highly recommend @mikeanthony84's work if you're looking for a portrait like this! Thank you Mike + Mike!!🤗 .

  • Can weekday brunch be a thing? 😋 Thanks @xix19 for yesterday's lovely birthday brunch! The chicken & egg waffles with sriracha aioli, wasabi slaw, whisky maple syrup, and poached egg is a stellar dish as is their bao benny! (Baos... so hot right now). A few more #lindorkfest meals to go! 😍💕

  • Loved my Bucatini Carbonara from the new-ish @vaticanocucina! 😍Pancetta, Italian sausage, pecorino and delicious handmade pasta at a great price. 👌🏻 Only critique is it could've been creamier but still very tasty! 
Last night's group had mixed feelings overall about the dishes we tried though - yays and nays. I'm in the yay camp for the pasta specifically. ☺️ And am always excited for more Italian options in the city!
Try it and let me know what you think. 🤗

  • Tonight I went on a spontaneous #yegfood dessert crawl with @britl (as research for an upcoming blog post! 😍) It was so much fun! And the strawberry #bingsu from the new-ish @hanjanyeg is AMAZING! Shaved ice & condensed milk dessert. So delicious! We also snuck in a non-dessert with their jaeyuk bokkum spicy pork belly, kimchi and rice. Loooooved it! Will be back to #HanjanYEG so soon.🤤
