Gluten Free Event At General Mills

Last week I traveled to Minneapolis to be part of a Gluten Free Summit at General Mills. I had a lot of fun and I learned so much.

I am so glad that a company like General Mills is taking an interest in the gluten free world and that they are offering more and more products that are gluten free.

General Mills truly seemed to listen to our thoughts, ideas, and opinions and that was encouraging to see. I hope more and more companies start taking an interest in gluten free.

I got to meet new friends and spend time with gluten free bloggers that have all been dealing with gluten free much longer than I have. I learned so many new tips and ideas from just spending time with them. I wish we could have spent more time together.

Linda, Shirley, Me (yes I am tall), Vanessa, and Maureen

We got to spend some time cooking in the Betty Crocker test kitchens, which are amazing. I only wish I had counter space like they do. :)

If you looking for more gluten free ideas and recipes, I highly recommend visiting the sites of the other bloggers that attended.

  1. how neat!! you were but a stone’s throw from me while you were there. sounds like it was an excellent time.

    • Really?! Well, it was a whirlwind 2 days. I got to MN at like 2 in the afternoon on Tuesday and flew black to OK on Wednesday evening. It was a busy, but fun time.

      • I’m glad it was fun!! You made it in and out while the weather was still beautiful — now, we have nearly 1 foot of snow!!

        Next time you’re in the area, I’d love to say “hi”!

  2. Great, brief summary on the summit, Lynn! I love you girls who have the gift of brevity. :-) But as far as the time together, like you said, that was TOO brief! It was so wonderful to meet you and the others in person … “old” online friends and brand new friends, too–very exciting! I was really encouraged by the event and have high hopes for what General Mills will bring to the table (pun intended) and to the world for gluten-free products and awareness.

    Hugs,
    Shirley
