Celiac Disease and Food Allergies Under One Roof

Kyle Dine, founder of Equal Eats

Today is a special guest post from my friend Kyle Dine. Though we’ve never met in person, Kyle and I have become friends from across the globe thanks to social media and Skype. I admire how Kyle took his personal experience living with food allergies and turned it into tools to help others through his business. Kyle is trying to make our food allergy world a better place. One day, I hope Kyle and I can share a gluten-free, peanut-free, tree nut-free, egg-free, seafood-free, and mustard-free meal together somewhere in this world.

Spring in New York City

I don’t know what it is about this spring, but it just feels different. Maybe because we got bombed with snow all winter long. Or maybe because it is the second spring during the COVID pandemic. Or maybe it is because I am vaccinated and most of my family is getting theirs too. Whatever it is, I am loving this season. It feels like a reawakening and I am feeling a bit more hopeful than last spring.

I am still not traveling but with the days getting longer, my walks are getting longer too. I live near many beautiful parks here in North Brooklyn, so I’ve been exploring near and far (but only as far as Manhattan since I am still not traveling at the moment.) Brooklyn feels almost “normal” with everyone emerging from their winter cocoon. The parks are packed, outdoor dining has resumed, and shops and restaurants that have been closed for a long time are slowly reopening. Everyone seems to be more optimistic.

Whether you are in the next town over or on the other side of the globe, finding food that is gluten-free can sometimes be a challenge. I usually do as much research ahead of time, but there are also times you need to find something while on the go. There are some great tools which can help you navigate your way to a gluten-free meal when away from home.

Gluten-Free Globetrotter #CrossCountryCeliac Part 2

If you have been reading this blog for a few years now, you might remember in 2016 when I drove cross-country for my move from New York City to California with my then boyfriend (now husband). I documented my travels on social media using #crosscountryceliac. It was quite an experience through the Southern United States, beating any major snowfalls the whole way across the country. I fell in love with New Mexico, explored the Hoover Dam, and clocked more than 3,000 miles from start to finish. I also got to appreciate the sheer size of this country over my nine-day road trip with my husband.

Well… I am doing it again! But in reverse. AND… I am moving back to New York City.
