A4A10 Gluten-Free Fun Vendy Awards: Part 2
Most Awesome Journalist
Watch out! Renegade Kitchen is on the job! Turn around and you have a Flip camera in your face and you are being interviewed by Dan a.k.a. Renegade Kitchen. Not only is Dan an awesome interviewer, he is also the chef behind the NFCA demo cooking videos. His videos of the Appetite for Awareness day should be up on his site soon, with an impromptu interview with yours truly. Here is a picture of Renegade Kitchen interviewing cookbook author Silvana Nardone and her son Isaiah, the one and only from "Cooking With Isaiah".
Most Deserving of Cheerleaders and a Fan Club
Jill Brack of Glow Gluten Free
I have had the pleasure of attending many events with Jill since we met in September and we are quickly becoming good friends. Jill is dynamic, friendly, humble yet extremely passionate about her products with so much gluten-free love going into these gluten-free cookies. Jill really should always be followed by a band of Glow Cheerleaders!
Most Likely to Make You Cry (in a good way)
Soft Pretzels by Tonya's Gluten Free Kitchen
I never had a gluten-free soft pretzel. EVER. Tonya's Gluten Free Kitchen is the only vendor table that I went back to FOUR times to get samples. Gluten-free pretzels that are soft, warm, and covered with just he right amount of salt equals major delicious points in my book. I literally wanted to cry after trying these pretzels. They were that good.
Best Sandwiches of the Day
Rudi's Gluten Free Bakery
You all already know I am a fan from my Tuesday blog post, but Rudi's seriously made some outstanding sandwiches at the Appetite for Awareness event. They had grilled cheese in the main hall and peanut butter and jelly sandwiches in the Children's Pavilion. For those that did not venture to the kids section, you definitely missed out! I am not usually a PB&J fan, but these sandwiches were delicious. They also had Amie, of The Healthy Appple, at the table and her positive energy about Rudi's was contagious.
Coolest New Travel Product
Rebecca & Devyn's Gluten Free to Go
I think these are a really great idea. These "to go" packages take some of your favorite allergy-free snacks and put them into one resealable package. Some snacks include Enjoy Life cookies, Stretch Island Fruit Company fruit strips, Yummy Earth Organic Peppermints and more. They are perfect for traveling, car rides, or even trips to the park with your kids. These Gluten Free to Go packs are a quick and convenient way to grab safe and allergy-free food on the run.
Gluten Free to Go was founded as a way to live simply and safely with food allergies and still have a normal life. Whether you are a busy mom or a business professional on the go, enjoy our allergy friendly snack packs, gluten-free and available free of the top 8 allergens (wheat, milk, eggs, peanuts, tree nuts, shellfish, fish, and soy).
