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.

Gluten-Free Globetrotter Deal Alert: FindMeGlutenFree App

NOTE: This post contains affiliate links.

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.

Gluten-Free Travel Nerves

It happen to the best of us!

Gluten-Free Living – An American Perspective

I was recently interviewed by Annika Dhariwal, founder of Gluten Free Jio, for her webinar series featuring gluten-free and celiac experts from across the globe. I was very honored to share my experience of growing up with celiac disease with her audience and the history behind Gluten-Free Globetrotter. We talked about celiac disease as a child, traveling the world, and differences between India and the United States. It was a very interesting conversation.

Annika is a celiac teenager from India who is currently studying at boarding school in the United Kingdom. She shares my love of traveling and doesn’t let celiac disease stop her from seeing the world. When I asked Annika the meaning of her website name “Gluten Free Jio,” I just loved her explanation.

Gluten Free Jio means to live gluten free. Jio in Hindi means to live. The idea behind this is to spread awareness about living a gluten free life in India and share my story and experiences of living in a boarding school and traveling as a celiac.”
