Giveaway: FAAN Walk Sunbutter Fun Pack

I had such a fun time at the Phoenix FAAN walk. I got to raise some money for a great cause – raising awareness about food allergies. Although I have Celiac – I know many people who have food allergies, and they aren’t taken seriously by restaurants (or even family). Does any of that sound familiar to you? Because it does to me too. And that’s why we love FAAN (now FARE since they merged with another awesome food allergy organization).

I had a great time of my boyfriend and an amazing friend – Kim, who is a nurse. They were so cool, and we even walked further off the path and through the mountain trail just to kick food allergies in the face! Thank you to my two lovely readers who donated – Stephanie and Alissa! You guys are amazing! <3

Here are some pictures from the walk:

    I try to always help fellow celiac family members by informing them about food and restaurants that I know of that are safe (and delicious!) to eat and eat at. I worked at a bakery that was not celiac friendly, and any customer that came in asking about gluten free options, I quickly informed them of a bakery, (Gormet Girls Gone Gluten Free!) that could offer them a soultion to what they were looking for. Being a frequent customer of GGGGF, I felt safe and confident about sending them down the street and offered suggestions on food that I thought was delicious, (go gluten/dairy free cupcakes!).

    As a relative of someone with the celiac disease, I frequently take brochures and pamphlets with me to the library, where I frequently come to study, and share them with other students and visitors. So far I’ve made at least 5 friends who got interested in learning more about food allergies!

    My news feed is filled with all sorts of information and links. My daughter (which is the person who has celiac) and I share everything we know with friends and family as well as strangers that we met through other people. Her room mates have taken intreast and are helpful as well as mindful. They love finding gluten free foods. We even have family members cooking/baking for her. She is a vegetarian as well as a runner. Since the diet change she is doing so much better and life is is by far a much better one 🙂

    I share websites with people, particularly friends and family, so they understand what our family is dealing with. Thanks for the giveaway!

    I always post feedback on yelp about gluten free menu options and my own review of how knowledgable the staff is

    I share dairy-free and sometimes gluten-free recipes with people–proving to them that you don’t need those ingredients to make food delicious.
