This weekend I was in Ottawa to attend the Canadian Celiac Association National Conference. I had not been to one of these national conferences before so I wasn’t 100% sure how much awesome it would be – though i had some idea.
This weekend was way “awesomer” then i thought it would be. My brain is tingling with all the information I learned and the fabulous people i got to meet. Canada is rocking some stuff when it comes to safe labeling laws and the research that is being done right now is great. I am excited to share all that i learned though it will be spanned across several posts because there was that much awesome!
I wanted to share some quick photos i took from the weekend. Mostly these are pictures of the food that i ate because this was my first gluten free conference. You know what that meant? Buffet food that i could actually eat and not need to ask a million questions about safety and contamination and explaining that gluten is not glue.
Food looks good right! I am sorry i don’t have more pictures of the actual conference and of the vendors area – i think i was the only one there who was tweeting/posting and one of the only ones who was always on the phone (people actually mentioned to me that i must be ‘really busy’). If you want to read some quick infomation – search the hashtag #CCANC on twitter or view my twitter feed.
Again i will be writing up some posts in the next few weeks outlining in more detail what i learned. New labeling laws passed here in Canada, current research, current trials for medication for celiac disease, and some interesting tidbits about how celiac disease and the gluten free diet — stay tuned for all that awesome!
A HUGE thank you to Kinnikinnick Foods for your support in making it possible for me to attend the conference - means the world to me!Share This Post: Tweet
