Gluten has become the butt of many jokes in the past few years. As the gluten free diet continues to rise in popularity, so do the pop culture references. Most recently, one of Vancouver’s most famous hometown heroes Ryan Reynolds even tweeted: “People in LA are deathly afraid of gluten. I swear to god, you could rob a liquor store in this city with a bagel“.

So, it may be a relief for you gluten avoiders and Celiac sufferers that there’s an event happening in Vancouver this weekend that lets you be with your brethren. Those who understand the pains of paying $10 for a tiny pizza or having to order another damn salad with no croutons at a restaurant.

The Gluten Free Expo in Vancouver is Canada’s largest gluten free event and it’s happening on Saturday, Jan 14 – Sunday, Jan 15, 2017 from 10:00 am to 5:00 pm at Canada Place East.

Feeling tired? Confused? Bloated? Achy?

Maybe it’s gluten.

The plant-based protein found in wheat and other foods has gotten a lot of negative press  lately, in books like Wheat Belly and from celebs like Lady Gaga and Miley Cyrus who expound the virtues of a gluten-free diet.

Now, an entire expo on the gluten-free lifestyle is rolling into Vancouver, Jan. 13 at the Vancouver Convention Centre.  This is the second local instalment of the expo, which originated in Vancouver last year and has since made stops in Calgary and Toronto.

More than 100 vendors will be sampling and selling their gluten-free offerings – from small businesses and local restaurants to larger food producers that make gluten-free goodies.  On the main stage, there will be gluten-free cooking demos, as well as presentations on gluten-free living.

Scientists estimate that one percent of the Canadian population suffers from celiac disease, an autoimmune disorder brought on by gluten, which causes everything from intense abdominal pain to fatigue and joint problems. Continue reading:
