Gluten-Free Globetrotter Facebook Live Q&A
Who: Gluten-Free Globetrotter on Facebook
When: Wednesday, May 2, 2018; 4pm PT/7pm ET
Where: Your computer!
One week from today I am going LIVE! I often get emails and direct messages that ask me how I travel the world with celiac disease, what to pack, and what to eat in specific cities. I thought a Facebook live event would be a great way to share some of your most commonly asked questions and let you interact with one another in the comments section.
I have some exciting new things to share during the Facebook live event and everyone who attends will be entered to win a giveaway of exciting gluten-free prizes. You won’t want to miss it.
Do you have any specific topics you want me to discuss in this Facebook live? Either email me or leave a comment below.

Today is my 40th birthday. As I write those words, I honestly cannot believe I am turning 40 today. Where does the time go? I was bitten by the travel bug in my 20s and never looked back! This weekend, I celebrated with some wine tasting in Santa Cruz, California and a hike at the newly re-opened Mount Umunhum. Hiking my way into a new decade was a great idea.

March was a unexpectedly busy travel month. I kicked off March with a last minute trip to San Jose del Cabo, Mexico. My husband and I literally booked the trip on Thursday and took off on Tuesday. Have you ever planned a trip in four days or less?

Last month, one of my best friends came to San Francisco for work. My friend Kristen and I originally met in the NYC Celiac Meetup group more than 7 years ago (or is it 8?? We always forget!) and have been friends ever since. We both left the east coast at the same time but keep in touch with regular phone dates, texts, and even bumping into each other randomly at an airport in Chicago! Since we both have celiac and we both love to eat, I knew we needed a gluten-free food crawl when she was in town. We met at her hotel and had a fun-filled day eating our way through San Francisco and beyond. Everywhere we ate was 100% gluten-free!

A few weeks ago, I had my very first Brazilian churrascaria experience at Fogo de Chão in San Jose, California. Churrasco is a Spanish and Portuguese term for grilled meat or more commonly barbecue. Many Americans have come to know a churrascaria to be a Brazilian steakhouse. I have to admit, I was very wary at first since American BBQ isn’t always celiac-friendly, but I was interested in learning more about Fogo de Chão and their gluten-free offerings. I also would LOVE to go to Brazil one day, so for the time being this is how I will fulfill that Brazilian food fantasy!
