Get Your Healthy On at the 2018 Gluten Free and Allergen Friendly Expo in San Mateo, CA

By: Irene Yang

The Gluten Free and Allergen Friendly Expos (GFAF) are the largest and fastest growing special diet consumer events in the US. Started in 2007, the events are professionally managed and have expanded from one to eight cities throughout the United States. In addition to meeting the needs of the Celiac community, the Expo welcomes those with gluten sensitivities, auto-immune/inflammatory diseases and autism.


Lucky for North Cali residence, the GFAF is coming to town in less than 2 weeks! As someone who embraces a mostly gluten-free diet, I went last year and it was amazing - so much to see, so much to eat and so much to learn.

A Vegetarian Delight: Taste Testing Thug Kitchen x Barilla Restaurants' Red Lentil Pasta

By: Finance Foodie

The other night, I headed down to the Barilla restaurant in Rockefeller Center to check out their latest menu offering. Partnering with the viral vegan cooking site Thug Kitchen, Barilla recently debuted a new limited-time menu item featuring Barilla’s Red Lentil Penne and Sundried Tomato Pesto and toasted almonds. Packed with protein and vegetarian friendly, I was excited to see what was in store.

Chocolate Heaven at the 2018 International Chocolate Festival

By: Irene Yang

I recently attended the 2018 International Chocolate Festival at the San Mateo Convention Center this past April. I won’t lie—my favorite part about food festivals is the free samples! There were over 40 vendors all throwing out their wares for the visiting chocoholic. The Chocolatiers are all very happy to talk to you about their work. Where they source the beans, how they make the bars, what kind of flavor profiles to expect; you can feel their passion as they walk you through the different kinds of chocolate available.
