The world is expanding

The world around us has expanded quite a lot in the understanding of living gluten-free, or living with food allergies.  As more gluten-free bakeries and restaurants pop up, so do other venues such as gluten-free camps, and gluten-free Bed & Breakfasts.

 

In the Pocono Mountains, the NJY Camp offers a Gluten-Free Family Camp weekend.  They also offer their gluten-free menu for all camping experiences.  Researching the area you are traveling to will help you pinpoint such places.

 

Possibilities are Endless

In a recent article in the Allergic Living Magazine, Gluten-Free’s World HQ, they state that “Finland holds the record for the highest incidence of the autoimmune disease in the western world. If there ever was a world headquarters for celiac disease, it would be Finland.”  They also stated, “Eating out gluten-free is generally viewed as simple in Finland”.   Research, diagnostics and government support are all top priorities there as well.  I had no idea that traveling to Finland could be a safe bet for me, until I read that article. You see, possibilities are endless.

 

Research and you will find incredible places to visit that allow you to continue to thrive living gluten-free.

 

Completely check out your destination
