We hope you'll find this to be a space where we share updated information about gluten-free living and eating AND where we all can share information, so please feel free to comment on posts or email us information you think should be included. Be sure to check out our sister site: BmoreGfree.com So that's that. Enjoy!


if you are concerned about traveling because you don't know what to do about the whole food situation, you could do what I did for the first 5 years of being diagnosed: pack a cardboard box with gluten-free food to last you for the entire trip...  But, really, who wants to do that?  

  • Research your destination:  Google Search: (your destination) and gluten free.  Check to see if your destination has a Trader Joe's or Whole Foods Market because, if they do, you are pretty much guaranteed at least a few gluten-free selections!
  • If you are traveling to a destination where English is not the spoken language, learn how to say "gluten free" "no wheat, oats, barley, or rye" in the spoken language.
  • Travel to Canada and/or Europe (Italy, France, England, Ireland).  They are much more accommodating of gluten-free needs than the USA currently.  Trivia:  All children in Italy must be tested for Celiac Disease by the age of 6!
  • Stay in a hotel that offers a kitchenette and go grocery shopping while traveling.
  • Once you arrive at your destination, if you are having difficulty finding gluten-free food, go to the local grocery store and get food there.  
Most importantly:   Remember that food is not the biggest part of traveling, enjoy the sights, meet people, and have fun.  Don't focus on food if you don't have to!
