Join me on November 13th at 4pm PST as I share my top tips for traveling with celiac disease. I will be joined by Kyle Dine, founder of Equal Eats and fellow allergen-aware world traveler. Thank you to the Celiac Disease Program at Seattle Children’s for hosting this event.
I am so excited to be a speaker at the Kogan Celiac Center virtual support group tomorrow with my great friend Maureen Basye from Celiac Cruise. We are sharing our top gluten-free travel tips and how to stay healthy on your summer vacation. Now that things have opened back up, we want to help you travel the world while living 100% gluten-free. Maureen and I both agree that you should never let celiac disease stop you from seeing the world.
This virtual support group, led by Michelle Pasia, MPH, RDN, Program Coordinator of The Kogan Celiac Center, is for those with celiac disease or gluten sensitivity as well as their loved ones who would like to learn more. It is designed to share and learn about what is new in the gluten-free world through conversation, recipes, tip exchanges and educational presentations. Gluten free is always a family issue so feel free to invite your family members.
Advanced online registration is required. Once registered, you will receive a link to the email you register with to join the meeting. You can join with audio and video or audio only. You will need to have access to GoToMeeting, and by joining the meeting you consent to being a part of the virtual support group with audio and video capabilities.

If you are traveling while living with celiac disease, most likely you have an arsenal of tools in your “celiac toolkit.” Food, apps, wipes, etc. You always need to be prepared with gluten-free food just in case. Snacks and apps are usually my top two travel accessories on every trip.
There are so many smartphone apps out there that try to make your celiac life easier. Apps to scan your food packages, apps to find places to eat, even apps that translate menus for you on the fly. I feel like I have tried them all.
Two weeks from today, I am heading to Santiago de Querétaro, Mexico. This is a big trip because we haven’t seen my mother-in-law since May 2019 when my son was only 6 weeks old! The pandemic kept our family apart for way too long. Now we are vaxxed, boosted, and taking all of the extra travel precautions. We are ready to go!
