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.
