Gluten-free travel tips & tricks
If you’re following a gluten-free diet, one of the biggest challenges you may encounter while traveling is language barriers. To make gluten-free travel easier, I highly recommend carrying a French Gluten-Free Restaurant Card. I mostly invest in a good gluten free restaurant card that mentions cross-contamination. Down below I’ve listed some French basics to explain your gluten-free diet.
In addition, it’s a good idea to conduct some research ahead of time. Look into local restaurants that offer gluten-free options and familiarize yourself with dishes that are local and likely to be gluten-free. With the combination of a trustworthy gluten-free restaurant card and advance research, you’ll be well-prepared to navigate your dietary restrictions while traveling.
