2019 The Nourish Festival New York is Back
I received tickets to the Nourish Festival in exchange for a review and event coverage. My Full Disclosure Policy
The Nourish Festival will be in town
I love summer, but there is something to be said about Fall! For me, it’s my opportunity to attend events that educate me on all things wellness. Over the next few months, I will be attending several expos. For the last four years, I have been attending the Gluten-Free and Allergy Friendly Expo.
Take a look at last expos.
This year isn’t any different other than the name. The Gluten-Free and Allergy Friendly Expo is growing up y’all, and I love the new name- Nourish Festival.
America recognizes food allergies
For so long, there has been some embarrassment. For being “that girl who has to ask all the questions when dining.” Within the last few years. Menu’s, Brands and Restaurants are adapting to the fact that not everyone can eat gluten. Food allergies and intolerances are real, and they affect people’s wellness. With all these adaptations its makes it much easier to nourish my body.
I attend these events to educate myself
It has literally taken me years to get to the point I am now with food. It’s actually kind of liberating to know what I can and cannot eat. As longs as I don’t eat things with gluten, dairy, and too much sugar, my stomach is happy. When I do, my gut suffers, and it affects me.
People who digest well don’t get it
I often get pushback from my food restrictions. Honestly, since I have eliminated particular food and have no desire to eat them. I have found making food decisions less cumbersome and easy, and I don’t feel sick anymore. If food doesn’t affect you, then you just don’t get it. So it annoys me when people and influencers say you can eat anything because I cant. So, that’s why I share and accept my food limitations and offer great brands and recipes that are tasty for those who have food restrictions.
No Longer Food Fixated
I used to suffer from food fixation mostly because I had no idea what I could, couldn’t and shouldn’t eat. I have a susceptible digestive system as well as food allergies. On this weight loss journey and through opportunities, I have been able to explore “alternative diets” and adopt things that have become a lifestyle instead of a diet for me.
The Nourish Festival
If you have food allergies, intolerances her prefer a special diet, come join me! Finding foods that make me thrive and not suffer has been vital for my food freedom, and I hope I can help yours. Since attending the GFAF Expo now known as the Nourish Festival four years ago. It was an eye-opening experience. That one: I am not alone and Two: there are options. I want to give someone else the same experience to explore the world of food that is “free” of allergens. There is so much stigma these days on things people do not know. Experiencing them first hand in person is so different than a google search. Some of my favorite companies will be there too. I either have tried and loved Against the Grain, Aleias, BraziBItes, Chebe, EnjoyLife, GardenLites , GoMacro, GeeFree, and MadeGood, to name a few!
I am looking forward to checking out companies I’ve never experienced as well.
The Nourish Festival Has Expanded
I am really excited about the expanded new sections to explore. Before the GFAF Expo now know as the Nourish Festival had gluten-free & nut-free sections. This year they have expanded to include some paleo, keto, and plant-based products. Although, they have expanded, everything is still gluten-free. I can’t wait to try and see what they have added. So, Why don’t you join me? I’ll be there again with my Baby Sis, and I would love to meet up with you and try some gluten-free foods. If you are exploring the world of Allergy-Friendly food and would like a ticket to this event. Email me and let me know how many tickets you need. I am giving them away. Also, please check out details of the Nourish Festival and see when one will be in your area if you’re not in the New Jersey, New York Area. Lots of events this fall you should definitely attend this one?
