Gluten-Free Globetrotter is heading to Portland, OR

Yep, it’s true. I am adding a new city and state to my travelogue soon!

There has been a lot going on in my “real” job lately. Although my passion and my babies are my two blogs and my NYC Celiac Meetup group, I have to pay my bills! When I tell people that I have a day job unrelated to the gluten-free world they are often shocked that I have the time for everything. Trust me, I don’t sleep much!

My professional world has taken an unexpected turn and I have some regular travel to Portland, OR in my immediate future. I am excited about this for a few reasons. The top reason is that I hear Portland is a great place to be gluten-free. Obviously, this is music to my gluten-free ears. I am slowly bookmarks and taking all recommendations for gluten-free in Portland. Also, I love being outdoors. Portland is a very green city and I am excited to explore by foot and bicycle.

Do you have any gluten-free favorites that I can’t miss in Portland? Please post them in the comments section below. I look forward to your recommendations. Stay tuned for my reviews and summaries soon!

  1. Portland is a wonderful place to be sent for work! I wish I went more often for my day job…its only a 4 hour drive from Seattle. I think I’ve got a bit of a food crush on that city. My favorites are Prasad, Andina, New Cascadia Traditional Bakery, and Hawthorne Fish House. If you want to read a bit more about those spots and see some othere option here’s a link to my Portland Posts :-).
