Have you ever watched the tv show The Bachelor? I admit, I have not. So I had no idea who I was headed to meet at the Kinnikinnick booth at Expo West.
Tenley Molzahn, a former dancer and contestant on The Bachelor, told me that after years of being sick and seeing tons of doctors (does that sound familiar?), she realized that gluten was the cause of all of her ailments. She is now working to bring awareness to the benefits of living a gluten-free lifestyle for those with celiac disease and gluten intolerances.
My friend, Linda, told me I had to get my picture taken with Tenley. I’m not sure why I listened. Tenley was super-nice, but why do I want my picture next to a model, especially on a day when I had been running around like crazy and not even been near a mirror? Oh well.
If I had been at Expo West on my own (instead of being there volunteering for the GFCO), I would have tried to take some time to talk more to the companies and take down notes. Alas, I did not. But a picture is worth a thousand words, right?
I even have a Kinnikinnick “Follow Me to Gluten Free” shirt signed by Tenley (in a size large). Who wants it? Tell me your favorite Kinnikinnick product, or one that you would like to try. You’ve got until Wednesday, March 30, 9pm central.
