About Us

We’re having a party and you’re invited! Gluten Free & More (formerly Living Without) magazine wants you to know that living with a food allergy or sensitivity doesn’t need to be about deprivation and missing out. On the contrary, what you’re living without is all the horrible symptoms and medical problems you had before understanding what allergens you needed to avoid. So, come join us, over a hundred of our favorite exhibitors and thousands of our closest friends as we celebrate LIVING WELL!!

“I can’t explain how amazing my experience was at Living Without’s #gffafest. I haven’t felt this welcomed and safe somewhere since my diagnosis. So many amazing and helpful people to talk to and share our journey!!”

Our nationwide series kicked off with three great Fests in 2014. We partied in San Diego in May, Indianapolis in August, and Portland, OR in September. We had a ton of fun, and our attendees and exhibitors seemed to have enjoyed themselves as well. Here are a few impressions from our most recent Fest in Portland:
