Gluten Free Bloggers for Traveling

Inspiration

When I was first diagnosed with Celiac disease I went through all kinds of emotions fear and anger, but mostly confusion. I did not know where to begin. I found most of my help in gluten free bloggers. Articles like, 8 Steps to Easy Gluten Free Grocery Shopping, helped me learn to navigate the ropes, but then it was time to plan a vacation.

I was filled with dread. I could barely navigate the grocery store, how would I figure out a whole new city. My husband and I based our vacations around food. We honeymooned in New Orleans just so we could eat our way around the city. Where would we go that I could eat and not be stressed about it the whole time?

Gluten-Free Goodness!

I don’t know about you, but I love getting gifts. It does not have to be a big gift. Little gifts are fine too. When I was teaching, I loved getting all kinds of different gifts during the holidays. Student’s would bring ornaments and all kinds of little things. It was so much fun.

Now that I am out of the teaching game I don’t get as many gifts for Christmas, just a few from my family, but that doesn’t mean I love them any less. Below I have given you just a few things that are on my wish list that I am sure anyone, gluten-free or not, would love!

Happy Halloween

Happy Halloween!

I know what you are thinking:

“Who made that amazing pumpkin?”

It was my amazing husband. He is so awesome and so supportive. Remember when he wrote Confessions From the Husband of a Celiac? He is just so great. Having celiac disease is not always easy, but when you have a great support system it definitely helps!

Halloween is now just a few days away, and I know what you are thinking, “Can I eat the candy?” Halloween is about more than little kids dressing up in cute costumes (my daughter is going to be a captain from StarTrek, if you don’t already follow me on Instagram you should, there will be pictures! @myglutenfreemiami) it is about seeing how much candy you can eat without getting sick.

8 Gluten-Free Beers to Celebrate Oktoberfest

8 Gluten-free Beers to Celebrate Oktoberfest

I got a text from my brother the other day. He was sitting at a bar in Wisconsin (land of micro-breweries) when he heard someone ask if they had any gluten-free beers. He immediately thought of me and asked why I hadn’t done a post on gluten-free beer for Oktoberfest. It was a great idea. I immediately called up my dad, the beer connoisseur of the family and invited him over for a gluten-free beer taste test. After a few more phone calls and trip to Total Wine and More we were set for a gluten-free beer tasting. All beer prices are what was paid at Total Wine and More and may vary from store to store. These are all honest opinions and I was in no way compensated for any reviews.

7 Places to Eat Gluten-Free in a Hurry

 Check out 7 gluten free friendly fast food places, links to allergy menus are included!Gluten Free Friendly Fast Food Restaurants with Allergen Menus

Upon going gluten-free, eating out can become a nightmare. It can be like playing Russian Roulette. Unless the place is 100% gluten-free, you are never going to be 100% sure that what you are eating does not have traces of gluten. No matter how hard you try to plan ahead, and bring your own lunch, it is going to happen. One day, you are going to be out running errands, and all of a sudden it is lunch time. You need to pick up something, but you really don’t have time to sit down. I’m going to be honest with you. There really are not a whole lot of choices. No one has come up with a gluten-free fast food restaurant….yet. Don’t dismay, there may not be a lot of choices, but I have found a few where you can pick up a gluten free friendly fast food meal without it taking a lot of time.

8 Really Simple Steps for Gluten-Free Grocery Shopping

8 Really Simple Steps for Gluten-Free Grocery Shopping

Many people have a love/hate relationship with grocery shopping. They love having food in the house, yet the whole process of going to the grocery store can be daunting. Couple that with restrictions on what you can and cannot eat, most would rather visit the dentist for a root canal.

Gluten-Free Grocery Shopping doesn’t have to be hard.

Normally, I am a person who LOVES grocery shopping. Yes, it is weird, but I do. When we visit new cities, one of my favorite things to do is check out the market. It is amazing the differences in food based on the area you are in. But I remember those first few times I went grocery shopping after going gluten-free. I was confused. I felt lost. I cried (I seem to do that quite a bit). No one was there to hold my hand, and honestly the information I had received from the nutritionist at my GI Doctors office didn’t really help much. After the tears subsided, I proceeded to buy anything that said gluten-free. I had not clue what I was buying and spent a fortune in the process. Since those days the process of buying groceries has become much simpler, no longer are there tears, but normal, fun (at least for me) shopping trips. As I think through what has made the experience easier, I have come up with 8 tips to help anyone who is going gluten-free.
