Recap of the rest of our Rome meals. Dinner at @lasoffittarenovatio was probably our favorite. Everything on the menu can be made gf. You’ll find this at many restaurants. It’s just amazing. You don’t find this in the US. Jax couldn’t decide so he ordered both gnocchi and a calzone. Both came with allergy markers. @pantharei_roma was ok, not our favorite. Again huge GF menu and they put a marker at the GF person’s spot. Breakfast at our hotel had a variety of pre-packaged @scharglutenfree items some of which were same/similar to at home (a version of schnacks) and some different like round rolls called Panini different than the ciabatta, muesli cereal, muffins and corn based crackers that Jax enjoyed with @nutella Nothing better than being able to enjoy a @mcdonalds burger with Dad which Jax can’t do in the US. These burgers come pre-packaged on a Schar roll and sealed so no cross contamination. And at @mama_eat while I didn’t get a pic of Jax’s pasta the whole menu can be made gf and you can see from last pic how seriously Celiac is taken. 2 chefs, 2 kitchens, 2 ovens. Amazing! The US has a looooong way to go. Gelato is getting its own post. #glutenfree #glutenfreefinds #glutenfreefood #forkyeahfoodies #glutenfreerome #glutenfreeitaly #glutenfreetravel #celiactravel #celiac #celiacdisease #celiaclife #celiacliving #glutenfreelife #glutenfreepasta #glutenfreegnocchi #glutenfreepizza #glutenfreecalzone #schar #scharglutenfree #glutenfreebreakfast #glutenfreemeals #glutenfreeeats #senzaglutine

We arrived in Rome snd though we were tired hit the ground running. If you saw my stories Jax got to try a Mcdonalds burger for lunch but the real food highlight of the day was dinner at @cimarra4 This is not one of the commonly posted gluten free restaurants I have seen people post about in Rome and I happened to come across it on someone’s TikTok feed a day or two before I left on our trip. It’s only about a year old, it’s AIC certified (see picture of sticker in the window) and the owner’s wife has celiac disease. (The second picture is of Jax with the owner Matthew.) After checking out the menu, we went here so Jax could get a gluten-free calzone and it did not disappoint. they have a completely separate gluten-free kitchen, and the food came with the cutest little Italian flag allergy pick! Everything was delicious, and after dinner Matthew recommended where we should go for some gluten-free gelato (@gelateriafatamorgana ) If you are headed to Rome, make sure to add @cimarra4 to your list. #glutenfree #glutenfreefinds #glutenfreefood #glutenfreetravel #glutenfreeitaly #glutenfreerome #glutenfreeroma #celiac #celiacdisease #celiaclife #celiactravel #glutenfreelife #glutenfreepizza #glutenfreecalzone

I am excited to announce that I am now a @baseculture Ambassador. They #gifted me some of their new Apple Spice baked breakfast squares to try which I really enjoyed. Like their other baked goods, they are not too sweet. I've also been enjoying the cinnamon raisin bread for breakfast with some @oat.haus granola butter (the newest flavor - coffee - is perfect with the cinnamon raisin bread). It was also my first time trying the Base Culture burger buns, paired with a @kvaroyarctic salmon burger which has been a staple on our summer dinner menu! #glutenfree #glutenfreefinds #forkyeahfoodies #baseculture #paleo #paleobakedgoods #paleobread #glutenfreebread #paleolifestyle #primalfood #grainfree #lowcarbbread #lowcarb #healthybreakfast #granolabutter #keto #cleaneating #paleobreakfast #glutenfreebreakfast #ketobreakfast #ketolife #glutenfreelife #celiac #celiaclife #celiacdisease #salmonburger #grainfreebreakfast #brandambassador #cinnamonraisinbread

We are back with another ice cream post, but it’s that time of year. We hadn’t been to @sweetcharliesicecream in a few years, so when we walked in I wanted to make sure they still had all of their allergy procedures in place, and they did. The person in charge did not hesitate when I asked to launch into an explanation of how they change gloves, sanitize the surface, get new ice cream scoops from the back, etc. If you haven’t had rolled ice cream, it’s definitely fun to watch them make. Ad far as the mix-in options, Jax was able to get @nutella or any fruits. He went with plain vanilla and then decided to get Nutella drizzled on top. All in all a great experience, and we were confident that they took all the necessary precautions. #glutenfree #glutenfreefinds #sweetcharlies #forkyeahfoodies #glutenfreelife #glutenfreefood #icecream #rolledicecream #glutenfreeicecream #icecreamlover #celiac #celiacdisease #celiaclife #rittenhousesquare #glutenfreephilly #glutenfreeeats #nutella

I bought these @eatdelizza gluten free chocolate eclairs a while ago at @sprouts when they were buy one box, get one free. And they've been sitting in my freezer for a while because I never remember to take them out before dinner to defrost them in time for dessert! But a few weeks ago I remembered! And boy we should NOT have waited so long to try them. They are AMAZING! Love when companies offer such a delicious product that does not even taste gluten free! They also offer gluten free mini cream puffs which I guess we will have to try next... #glutenfree #glutenfreefinds #chocolateeclairs #chocolateeclair #glutenfreedessert #dessert #nobakedessert #sweettooth #eclair #frozendesserts #glutenfreelife #celiac #celiaclife #celiacdisease #glutenfreefood #chocolate #chocolatedessert #forkyeahfoodies

Brazilian cheese bread! What can I say? It's delicious and naturally gluten free! But I love when there is a fun story behind it like with @tobcheesebread (which stands for Taste of Brazil). Two friends who grew up in Sao Paolo, Brazil came to the US for college and majored in business and settled on Kansas City as a place to offer their Brazilian cuisine! We tried making ours in the air fryer and boy was it yummy! Crispy and golden brown on the outside, but chewy and cheesy on the inside! You can find it at stores in the Kansas City area or buy it online! Love finding new gf foods to add to our rotation! #glutenfree #glutenfreefinds #glutenfreefood #glutenfreesnacks #cheesebread #brazilianrecipe #braziliancheesebread #tapiocaflour #paoqueijo #forkyeahfoodies #celiac #celiacdisease #celiaclife #glutenfreelife #glutenfreeeats #glutenfreebread #brazil #brazilianfood #cheese #cheeselover

I’ve been wanting to take Jax to @jenisicecreams scoop shop for a while since they opened in Philly and we finally got to go last night. Many of their flavors are certified gluten free (you can buy them in stores such as @WholeFoods ) The ice cream shop has great allergy procedures and the staff will clean their hands and scoop from a fresh tub in the back. They have lots of fun gf flavors to choose from like buttercream birthday cake and cookies and cream! Jax went with honey vanilla bean and demolished both scoops! Nice to have a safe place to go out for ice cream! #glutenfree #glutenfreefinds #forkyeahfoodies #icecream #glutenfreeicecream #celiac #celiacdisease #celiaclife #glutenfreelife #jenisicecream #icecreamlover #glutenfreedessert #glutenfreefood #glutenfreeeats #certifiedglutenfree #celiacsafe #dessert #vanillaicecream #glutenfreephilly #rittenhousesquare #nogluten #celiackids

Last Boston post! @taverninthesquare was another small New England chain that’s been on my radar for a while that I wanted to try. I have seen lots of people post about it. I was amazed that on the kids menu alone, 10 of the 13 items could be made gluten free - from pizza to a burger to mac & cheese! Jax had so many choices. Of course the adult menu has lots of gf choices ad well. From what I read on the @glutendudeapp there is no raw wheat flour in the kitchen - all items are made off site. We went to the downtown Boston location near the TD Garden for lunch and Jax went with a burger on a gf bun & fries, and I love that it came with an allergy marker. We liked it so much that on the way home we stopped at the Cranston, RI location for lunch again and Jax tried the cauliflower crust pizza! I am definitely impressed with all of the choices in Boston - way more than we have at home! #glutenfree #glutenfreefinds #glutenfreelife #glutenfreefood #glutenfreeeats #glutenfreeburger #glutenfreebuns #glutenfreeboston #glutenfreenewengland #celiac #celiacdisease #celiaclife #glutenfreetravel #celiactravel #taverninthesquare #celiackids #forkyeahfoodies #glutenfreepizza #forkyeahfoodies

What’s a trip to Boston without visiting the North End, the area with all of the Italian restaurants? A few people including @onmollysplate had recommended @beneventosrestaurant and I read green reviews on FMGF. Jax started with gf garlic bread which they make on one of their gf pizza crusts. Jax loved it. They offer gf pasta and pizza. Gf pasta choices include penne and gnocchi with a variety of sauces, Jax couldn’t decide so he got both - with butter - what do you expect from a 9 year old! The pizza/garlic bread is cooked on a foil pan so it doesn’t touch the oven surface. For dessert we headed over to @modernpastry and waited in the typical out-the-door line. It moved fast though. They had a few gf options that are kept separate and they’ll change their gloves. They have gf cannoli shells kept on top of the case in a large glass jar. You can only get the ricotta filling. They also had whoopie pies individually wrapped in plastic bags which was Jax’s choice, as well as coffee cake and chocolate chip cookies. It was nice to be able to go to a “regular” bakery and have some safe options. All in all a great night meeting up with one of my old college friends and her son, and showing the kids a fun part of Boston! #glutenfree #glutenfreefinds #glutenfreefood #glutenfreetravel #glutenfreeboston #glutenfreenewengland #glutenfreeitalianfood #glutenfreepasta #glutenfreegnocchi #glutenfreecannoli #glutenfreewhoopiepie #cannoli #whoopiepie #northendboston #italianfood #celiac #celiacdisease #celiactravel #celiaclife #garlicbread #glutenfreegarlicbread #modernpastry #forkyeahfoodies

We are on the road in New England visiting colleges for my daughter and I have to say I am impressed by, and jealous of, the many dining options they have with gluten free menus. In CT we stopped for lunch at @planbburgerbar where we have been before which has extensive gf options and dedicated fryers. Jax got a burger in a gf bun and fries. For dinner we went to sonewhere that’s been on my list @110_grill a chain mostly in MA and CT with a huge double sided gf menu. Although it looks like a burger (1st pic) Jax is having grilled cheese, it’s just on a bun! Yesterday for lunch in Harvard Square, we stopped at @motherjuice which is dedicated gf. Jax got something a little out of his comfort zone and actually liked it so we may have something new in his repertoire. He got @udisglutenfree toast with @sunbutter bananas and honey.

In the last 24 hours I found out that not one, but two, of Jax’s favorite gluten free products have been discontinued. @thinkproducts kids protein bars are our go to! Jax usually has them before soccer practice, tennis practice, soccer games and more. While he likes other granola bars, most of those only have a few grams of protein, while these have seven or eight grams. They also were great for us during a time period for us When Jax could not have oats. I’ve been having trouble finding them lately at @target. I thought maybe it was because it was summertime and they were covered in chocolate. A few weeks ago I was able to order some on a website that had a 2 box limit. The next time I went to order them they were out of stock. Then yesterday somebody posted a Facebook group that she called the company and confirmed that they were discontinued. I found some on a random website that I never heard of an ordered 8 boxes plus paid $15 shipping. We’ll see if I really get them. But to say we are disappointed is an understatement. I know that there are adult versions of this bar, but they are bigger and I could see a lot of half eaten bars going to waste.  Then today I went online to order some @kaysnaturals cereal which is great for travel because it comes in individual packs. It’s always good to have as a back up when you travel in case there are no gluten-free breakfast options available. I couldn’t find it on Amazon where I usually order it, so I googled it and I found out that the company was bought a year ago, and the company who bought Kay’s Naturals has stopped manufacturing their products. Another big disappointment. The only other single serve gluten-free cereal I was able to find online is @chexcereal which we love, but I am not ready to commit to buying a pack of 96!! Ugh!! Can anyone else relate? #glutenfree #glutenfreefinds #glutenfreeproducts #glutenfreecereal #proteinbars #cereal #discontinuedproducts #thinkbars #celiac #celiacdisease #celiaclife #celiacmom #celiackids #glutenfreelife #forkyeahfoodies
