Right in time for grill season, they're celebrating the launch of their new line of gluten-free hot dog buns and whole grain hamburger buns, a much needed addition to the gluten-free universe.
Udi's has an almost cult-like following amongst gluten-free dieters for their soft, flavorful breads, muffins, pizza crusts, and bagels (yes, gluten-free bagels!). This isn't the dense, hard-as-a-rock bread that most of us had to rely on for years. This stuff tastes like the real deal -- and it's made with fantastic, all natural ingredients.
My day hanging out with Udi's was filled with tons of fun. They assembled a group of gluten-free enthusiast bloggers, including Marla from Family Fresh Cooking and Chris Armstrong from Celiac Handbook. The fabulous Karen Fine of Mom Cooks Gluten Free gave a great presentation about making healthy, gluten-free kids lunches that your kids will actually eat, no small feat.

Everybody that I met that day -- from the bloggers, to the Udi's employees, to the other attendees at the expo -- were some of the nicest people that I've ever encountered. Even better, they were as enthusiastic about healthy eating as I am. It truly warmed my little food blogger heart.
