Event Preview: Washington DC Gluten Free Education Day (Discount Code)

Image Source
Last year, I attended the Washington DC Gluten-Free Expo and had a great experience with the speakers and vendors that participated. You can read that blog post right here. The annual event is sponsored by the Celiac Program at Children's National Health System and the Walter and Jean Boek Foundation.

This year, the event is returning but also mixing up the format a bit to focus more on celiac and gluten-free issues. With speakers ranging from physicians to authors, restaurant owners to advocates, this is a great opportunity to brush up on the latest research around gluten-related disorders and become a better advocate in the gluten-free community.

NYC Trip Recap: Non-Food Sights to See

Last month on the blog, I shared all of the delicious foodie finds from my recent trip to New York City. I planned each day around visiting restaurants and cafes, but also made sure to mix up my itinerary with non-food attractions too so as to get as full of a New York City experience as I could.

Unlike Washington D.C. (see my favorite D.C. attractions here)), I have only been to New York City a few times, which means that I am still discovering the city. I am by no means an expert. Nevertheless, I figured I would share my experiences both to share the highlights of my trip and relive the experience now that I am back to normal- bogged down by collegiate coursework. 

Although I love to travel, New York City is quite exhausting to visit, because the fast-paced city truly never stops. There's so much to do, and no matter how long you are planning on visiting, you will miss out on things and wish you had another day to explore.
