Gluten-Free Travel Tips: Renting an Apartment or House

Looking to plan some fall or holiday gluten-free travel? Whether you’re going close or far, there are several tips that will help make the trip easier and cheaper, starting with your choice of accommodations. Instead of booking a hotel room, consider renting an apartment or house through Airbnb or VRBO.

A Delicious Gluten-Free Food Truck in Connecticut

In the past there wasn’t much gluten-free food available, aside from maybe an Italian ice or kettle corn, so we set out to get either of these. Then my husband saw it: a chalkboard sign that read “The Celiac Epicurean”, local, farm fresh, 100% gluten-free.

Gluten-Free Food Festivals: Why Should You Go?

OK, so our house has held at least one celiac/100% gluten-free person for over 12 years now and we still go to gluten-free festivals. Why do we do it? That’s easy. Gluten-free food is darn expensive; some of it is fantastic-tasting, but let’s face it - a lot of it is still not very good. So if you are like me, and I suspect a lot of you are, you find a brand of something, say pizza, that you like and you stick with it …for years. It’s good, so why risk wasting your money on trying something else that is quite possibly subpar? You are content…or at least you’ve accepted your lot in life.

Gluten-Free Labeling in Argentina

In Argentina, gluten-free is referred to in a few different ways. Packaged foods will bear the label “sin T.A.C.C.,” which stands for “sin trigo, avena, centeno y cebada,” or “without wheat, oats, rye and barley.” The logo, a bold crossed-out wheat image with the words “sin T.A.C.C.,” is prominent on a lot of packaged foods from dulce de leche (delectable caramel sauce) to sugar packets.

Heading on a Gluten-Free Hiking Trip

This summer, a different challenge awaited us. For 14-year-olds, her camp offers an overnight camping trip. But this is no simple overnight camping trip, it involves five weeks of traveling from Wisconsin to the Pacific Northwest and back. They’re traveling by bus for five weeks, hiking each day, sleeping in tents at campsites in national parks and making their own food.

"I am amazed how good your lemon pound cake recipe is. I love to bake but stopped doing it as much because after I went gluten-free, I couldn’t find a recipe that didn’t taste like something was missing. Thank you! Looking forward to other gluten-free cake recipes."

"Oh, how I wish my doctors had told me about the psycho-social impact of celiac disease—social isolation, anxiety, depression. People stop inviting you to potlucks, lunch with friends, dinner celebrations and neighborhood gatherings because they don’t know how to deal with your dietary issues. Gluten Free and More helps me deal with these issues. But it really takes internal fortitude to push through the isolation and step out the front door."
