Gluten-Free Travel Talk with Live Free Canada

Erin Smith talks Gluten-Free Travel + Celiac Globetrotting An episode of The Living Free + Well Podcast

Globetrotting the Gluten-Free World!

A few weeks ago I had the pleasure of talking with sisters Pam and Anna Kruusi of Live Free Canada and the Living Free + Well Podcast. These sisters are both living in Canada and either have celiac disease or food intolerances. I was super excited to talk to them, especially since both my sister and I have celiac disease and our grandmother is from Canada. Nothing like keeping it in the family!

Gluten-Free Globetrotter: I’m Here!

New York City from Hunter's Point Park South

August 26, 2018 New York City from Hunter’s Point Park South

Hi Friends,

I know it’s been a while since I have posted but life has been a complete whirlwind since about mid June when my husband and I decided to move back to New York City from Santa Cruz, California. Once we said yes, the locomotive of life was full steam ahead.

Gluten-Free Globetrotter #CrossCountryCeliac Part 2

If you have been reading this blog for a few years now, you might remember in 2016 when I drove cross-country for my move from New York City to California with my then boyfriend (now husband). I documented my travels on social media using #crosscountryceliac. It was quite an experience through the Southern United States, beating any major snowfalls the whole way across the country. I fell in love with New Mexico, explored the Hoover Dam, and clocked more than 3,000 miles from start to finish. I also got to appreciate the sheer size of this country over my nine-day road trip with my husband.

Well… I am doing it again! But in reverse. AND… I am moving back to New York City.

Gluten-Free Globetrotter at Gluten-Free Food Allergy Fest Brooklyn

I am beyond excited to be heading back to Brooklyn for the very first NYC Gluten-Free Food Allergy Fest on July 28-29, 2018. It will be so great to see old New York City Celiac Meetup friends and met new gluten-free people at this event. The GFFAFest will be at the Brooklyn Expo Center which is right in the heart of Greenpoint, Brooklyn. As a matter of fact, I used to live on the same exact street! Come for the expo, stay for the awesome views of NYC just down the block at Transmitter Park, and maybe even happy hour after the event. I’m always up for drinks in Brooklyn.

Traveling with Celiac: Using a Doctor’s Note

Traveling with Celiac DiseaseWhen I went to Singapore two weeks ago, I did something for the very first time. I traveled with a doctor’s note. I had only read about using a note in the past, but figured it was worth a shot. Some might ask why a doctor’s note? For me, it was to ensure that my food was not confiscated during a long weekend of travel. With both Celiac disease and a shellfish allergy, I brought a lot of food with me for my week in Singapore. I wanted to make sure this food would be with me from start to finish. I also hoped I would have some food to eat on my way home.
