‘We’re not here to save the world, we just want to make yours a whole lot easier.’
The lovely people behind the “Send Me Gluten Free” monthly subscription box have offered one lucky BeautybyBritanie follower a chance to win one month of special goodies for this giveaway! The products change, so the picture above is just a sampling from a previous box. And for ALL of my readers they have offered a special discount code for 20% off ANY subscription length with the code BLOG20. Each month, subscribers get to try 8-12 new gluten free items. Products included in each monthly box are both full sized and sample sized. The choices can be food, personal care items, supplements or household products that support a gluten free lifestyle.
I discovered Send Me Gluten Free from the GF & AF Expo (Gluten Free & Allergen Friendly) in Springfield, MA. This is the USA’s largest collaboration of this kind dedicated to awareness and education for special diets such those for the Celiac community, gluten sensitivities (me!), Auto-immune/Inflammatory diseases and Autism.
Go to: http://gfafexpo.com/about-us/ to learn more and to see which City they will be in next. The Expo ticket provides entry to the vendor fair with over 100 brands. Valuable coupons at the booths, samples, informative classes related to the GF&AF lifestyle, and a free reusable bag to carry all your goodies! And you get to meet your favorite vendors, authors and bloggers.
I’ve been 100% gluten free for the past 13 years after being diagnosed at 16 with gluten intolerance. Years of debilitating stomach pain, aches & pain in my joints and an all around “sick” feeling came to an end when I eliminated all foods and personal care products (yes there is a lot in many beauty products!) that contained any gluten.
Red Apple Lipstick is a gluten free cosmetic brand that I adore, use often and highly recommend to my readers. They are another favorite company of mine that often participates in these Expos.
When I began my search my replacements for all my favorite foods thirteen years ago, it was a very depressing situation to say the least. Almost everything I tried tasted horrible and just was not worth the trouble of eating! Even cardboard would have (maybe) tasted better than what was on the market at that time.
Well I’m happy to say we have come a very long way since then. What I love about this monthly subscription box is that you get so many different delicious products to try out. Every month the choices change and that’s the fun of it! I thought I had heard of everything new to the market, but some of these delicious foods were a surprise to me.
Food allergies are tough to figure out, but I found that the Elimination Diet was the most beneficial. Go to: Mindbodygreen.com and read, “The Simple Elimination Diet That Could Change Your Life Forever. I highly recommend doing this program for at least four weeks if you have any unresolved digestive issues.
I believe that everyone smiles in the same language! But what I know for sure is that everyone cannot tolerate the same foods! Food is medicine, find what works to make you feel your best. Take a look below at the all gluten free foods that were included in this month’s box!
Oh, and they include many coupons and this month included one for a full sized product!
My Thoughts: This company really knows gluten free. They have been helping the gluten free community for a very long time. They have hosted the GF&AF Expos since it began in 2007. In 2010 they launched the mobile app, Find Me Gluten Free. It because the number 1 gluten free restaurant finder app. They wanted to do even more, so they created ‘an expo in a box’ for everyone living this lifestyle so they could try these products delivered right to their door.
You can sign up for one month, three, or twelve. But in my opinion you should give this company a try. For me, I can’t wait to see what new gluten free products will be included in next months box! Remember, my readers get 20% off the price for the life of your subscription, so use the discount code at checkout: BLOG20
