Top 5 Gluten-Free Honeymoon Tips

I am so excited to have a featured article in this month’s Gluten-Free Living Magazine. Any time I can share my top gluten-free travel tips with the world, I jump on it. Find my  “Planning a Gluten-Free Honeymoon” article on page 26-27 of the March/April 2018 issue. Keep scrolling to see my top 5 tips for a gluten-free honeymoon.

Top 5 Gluten-Free Honeymoon Tips

Tip 1: Do your research.

Before you leave for your honeymoon, start looking for local restaurants that can accommodate a gluten-free diet. If you have your heart set on a special meal, make a reservation ahead of time.

Tip 2: Pack food.

It’s better to over-pack with gluten-free, non-perishable snacks such as bars, quinoa cups, nuts, and gluten-free jerky than to not have any options. Nobody likes an hangry newlywed!

Tip 3: Go with the flow.

Not every vacation goes exactly as planned. It is ok if there are small hiccups along the way. Enjoy the moment. Some of your best memories might be from unplanned adventures.

Tip 4: Use celiac translation cards.

Translation cards come in many languages and can be used both locally and abroad to explain what you can and cannot eat on a gluten-free diet. Two companies I personally recommend are AllergyTravel and SelectWisely. Visit my translation card page to see even more translation card options for your travels near and far.

Tip 5: Enjoy your trip.

Take time to relax with your new spouse. Explore, experience, and enjoy each other and your new married life together.

Don’t forget to buy the March/April 2018 issue of Gluten-Free Living magazine to read my entire “Planning a Gluten-Free Honeymoon” article.

While I didn’t immediately go on a honeymoon when I got married last April, we had our wedding in New York City and spent time as tourists in our old neighborhood. Next week, just 11 months later, we are headed for a quick beach getaway to celebrate our love in Mexico! While it might not be a traditional post-wedding “honeymoon,” it will still be amazing. I plan on using my gluten-free travel tips to enjoy the moments. xo

    Good tips and wholeheartedly agree. I like to pre book tables for special meals at restaurants; you can ask all the coeliac / cross contamination questions in advance plus have something set to look forward to! Have a wonderful trip to Mexico!
