Thank you for your interest in the 3rd Annual Gluten Free + Healthy Lifestyles Expo!
Meet the Event Coordinator: AnGela Reinhard
For years I suffered with digestive trouble without a known cause. After a ton of research & investigation, including finding several supportive healthcare practitioners, I found that a severe sensitivity to gluten and several other foods would limit my food choices indefinitely. To my surprise this discovery also allowed me to continue battling with bipolar disorder without the use of medications. Learn more about my health journey at yourpowerofreason.com.
Many people ask, "No bread...No pasta...What is left to enjoy life with?!" At first I wondered the same thing. I'm a self-professed foodie - there's no such thing as life without good food! But after years of finding work-arounds, I've come to realize that there's more to life EATING REAL FOODS.
By eating the foods that heal my gut, I have the time, energy & health to enjoy life more + real foods actually taste good! I know you won't believe me until you try it for yourself. So join us at this year's second annual Gluten Free + Healthy Lifestyles Expo [GFHLX] in Sarasota, Florida!
At GFHLX you'll get to sample products, get coupons, attend informative classes & demos along with hundreds of people who have the same goal in mind - EAT HEALTHY, LIVE HEALTHY! It's a fun, family-friendly, educational event with over 50 exhibitors and respected guest speakers.
I look forward to connecting with you! And hope to meet your personally at GFHLX on April 21st!
Yours in Health,
AnGela Reinhard, Event Coordinator

"I have always loved art - as a form of self-expression & stress relief. Living in an area rich with local artists, I want to give them a platform to show off their work and make a statement about the changes they want to see happen in our community concerning healthcare," remarks AnGela Reinhard. "I hope this opens the way for a conversation on how we can all work together for a healthier future."
