I rarely go to Times Square, but when I do it's for a big gluten-free breakfast sandwich @friedmansnyc. The Edison Hotel location is my favorite location and the one I trust the most. Almost everything on the menu can be made gluten-free, just ask! This sandwich is the B.E.L.T. Thick-cut bacon, over-easy egg, lettuce, tomato, herb aioli, and gluten-free bread. #glutenfreenyc #glutenfreeglobetrotter #glutenfree #glutenfreeeats #glutenfreeliving #glutenfreefollowme #celiac #celiacdisease #whatceliacseat #celiaclife #glutenfreebreakfast #friedmansnyc #senzaglutine #sansgluten

Tell me you have family visiting from Mexico without telling me where they are from. 🤣🇲🇽 The goods have been secured. Is there anything better than a houseguest who brings a suitcase full of gluten-free, handmade, fresh tortillas directly from Mexico?! #glutenfree #glutenfeeemexico #singluten #singlutenporfavor #glutenfreefood #glutenfreeeats #glutenfreeliving #celiac #celiacdisease #whatceliacseat

Meet my BFF* 🍟 Introducing the Triple Fat Fries from @duckseasonnyc at the @urbanspacenyc Union Square holiday market. What exactly makes it triple fat? Welp, it's duck fat fries, cheddar sauce, duck gravy, crispy duck skin, and duck fat mayo. Whoa!!! This is definitely a splurge (and definitely a big bowl of cholesterol) but it is freaking delicious. That crispy duck skin is uhhhhmazing. Like a cross between bacon and crisp heaven. Duck Season has a dedicated GF fryer and their duck gravy is also gluten-free as is their poutine! Keep in mind they do serve burgers on regular buns so the booth is NOT 100% gluten-free. All of the Duck Season fries dishes are HUGE so it's definitely enough to share. *Best french fries Thank you UrbanSpaceNYC for the invite to your opening night! #glutenfreeglobetrotter #glutenfreenyc #glutenfree #glutenfreefries #glutenfreefood #glutenfreeinnyc #nyceats #glutenfreeeats #glutenfreeliving #glutenfreefollowme #senzaglutine

These gluten-free crispy onions from Whole Foods are by far one of my favorite gluten-free products of the season. I eat them right out of the can. They are a seasonal and salty guilty pleasure plus they are certified gluten-free! Check out the logo on the bottom left. Have you tried these yet? Run to Whole Foods and thank me later. #glutenfree #glutenfreesnacks #glutenfreefood #glutenfreeliving #certifiedglutenfree #celiacdisease #whatceliacseat #celiac

The Wall of Liars and Deniers Today feels like a good day to post this public art installation around the corner from my job in Bushwick, Brooklyn. This #WallofLiarsandDeniers was put up shortly before the midterm elections. According to the artist, it displays more than 300 "GOP candidates, right-wing pundits and others spreading the 'BIG LIE' that the 2020 Presidential election was stolen." It wasn't. The lies on this wall were sourced from reputable news sources including the New York Times, Bloomberg News, CNN, Washington Post, and others. Additionally, behind the Wall of Liars and Deniers, you can see the original Wall of Lies which includes more than 20,000 lies Trump told while in office, all color-coded by subject. It is a powerful piece especially when you see the size of it and realize what you are reading on the wall. There is definitely a feeling of despair when you look at this wall, especially given that he is running again. I am hoping I can turn that feeling into action and hope for 2024. I am sure posting this will cost me followers and I am ok with that. I just cannot sit silently and watch this country fall any further apart. If you don't like what I have to say, no one is forcing you to be here. Thank you @pwbuehler and @radiofreebk for making this wall possible. #brooklyn #bushwick #walloflies #wallofliarsandDeniers #artinstallation #voteblue #vote #notgonnakeepquiet

Sometimes you just need a triple stack of gluten-free pancakes topped with eggs and bacon.for progress with unlimited coffee. Amirite?! 🥞🥓🍳☕ I was pleasantly surprised to discover the Palace Restaurant back in the spring via @findmeglutenfree. Ever since Bloom's closed down, I was really craving a traditional NY diner. You know... Pancakes and bottomless coffee for breakfast and mile-high sandwiches and fries for lunch. All gluten-free, of course. This past weekend I made a return trip to the Palace for breakfast. When I first posted about the Palace Restaurant (on East 57th St in Manhattan), many of you told me it's also your favorite go-to restaurant in midtown. Hidden in plain site, this diner has a full GF menu and takes prep seriously. You have to ask for the gluten-free menu when you walk in but they will confirm when they take your order and again when they bring your food. This place could easily become my new favorite breakfast spot. I think I need to go back just to make sure. 😋 Oh, and for you old school celiacs like me, this was part of the original GFRAP program waaaaaay back in the day. Does anyone remember that besides me? -- #glutenfreeglobetrotter #glutenfreenyc #glutenfreefood #glutenfree #glutenfreebreakfast #glutenfreemenu #celiacfood #celiacdisease #celiac #whatceliacseat #glutenfreeliving #celiactravel #nycglutenfree

Hi, I'm Erin Smith, founder of Gluten-Free Globetrotter. I thought it was about time I (re)introduce myself to all of you. First of all, thank you for being here. Seriously. I know I get quiet at times, don't make fancy reels, and post a lot of passionate rants/stories, but I truly do appreciate all of the comments, DMs, and friends that follow this account. YOU are who keep me going even though I literally want to throw my phone out the window at times.  A little bit about me... 👉🏼 I was diagnosed with celiac disease in 1981. Yes, you read that correctly. It's been 41 looooong years of living gluten-free!  👉🏼 I have a shellfish allergy and a kiwi allergy (as of only one month ago!)  👉🏼 I have a 3.5 year old son* with a peanut allergy and a husband who can eat EVERYTHING. * Yes he's already 3.5. No I don't know how that happened. 😭😭 Time flies. 👉🏼I absolutely love to travel. It's the reason I started my Gluten-Free Globetrotter blog all the way back in 2011.  👉🏼I have been to 37 US states, drove cross-country twice, and have been to 24 countries, all with celiac disease. 👉🏼 I live in New York City and keep an updated list of all 100% gluten-free restaurants in NYC on my website. 👉🏼My sister, nephew, and cousin all have celiac disease. We like to keep it in the family. 😉 👉🏼I have met SO many wonderful people through social media and my blog from around the globe. I honestly cannot even name everyone that I have connected with in real life because I have gluten-free, celiac blind dates all the time. IYKYK So that's a high-level summary of the @glutenfreeglobetrotter. Want to know more? Ask me anything! My lifelong experience of living with celiac disease and traveling the world has pretty much made me an open book. Say hello! I'd love to hear from you. Thanks for being here.  Fab 📸 by @emilylouickphotography who also happens to be gluten-free! #glutenfreeglobetrotter #thisisme #glutenfree #glutenfreenyc #celiac #celiacadvocate #celiacdisease #glutenfreeliving #glutenfreelifestyle #celiactravel #glutenfreetravel #travelingwithceliac #travelblogger #coeliac #celiachia #sansgluten #senzaglutine #zöliakie #celiaca #celíaco

Them: Oh you have celiac? That means you are gluten-free and can't eat bagels, right? Me: WRONG! 🥯🥯🥯🥯🥯 #glutenfree #glutenfreefood #glutenfreebagels #glutenfreebakery #celiac #celiacfood #celiacdisease #celiacdisease #glutenfreenyc #glutenfreelongisland #glutenfreeliving #glutenfreelifestyle

Two words: Latke Tots A latke is a type of potato pancake that is usually a flat, fried little pillow of potato deliciousness. Take that potato pancake and make it smaller and you've got a latke tot. I had these as a side to my lunch today @modernbreadandbagel and I was a happy camper. Savory and fried are part of my foodie love language and these perfectly got that criteria. These were so good and I will definitely be back for more. Special shout out to @glassofweinstein for being a great lunch date. I love meeting gluten-free friends in real life! GET. THE. TOTS. #glutenfreenyc #glutenfreeglobetrotter #dedicatedglutenfree #glutenfree #glutenfreefriends #glutenfreeliving #glutenfreefryer #celiac #celiacfood #celiacdisease #whatceliacseat #celiacadvocate #gfnyc

Join this event to hear from world-renowned researchers and drug-developers to learn about the latest in celiac disease innovations.

The 16th Annual Center for Celiac Disease at Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia multidisciplinary education program.

Gluten-Free Globetrotter in 2021

My plan for Gluten-Free Globetrotter is to go back to my roots of sharing my personal story, advocating for the celiac disease community, and helping others navigate their gluten-free journey both near and far. I also plan to update my Gluten-Free in New York City content including more guides, more maps, and maybe even a gluten-free food tour after years of you asking me for one. I also want to celebrate living with celiac disease for 40 years. My favorite part of living with celiac disease has always been the amazing community of people that I have connected with around the world.

2020 Gluten-Free Globetrotter Holiday Gift Guide

Each of these pre-made packs include: 1 mask, 1 single use hand sanitizer, 1 pair of gloves, and 1 single use sanitizing wipe. The Celiac Project Documentary $2.99 to rent; $9.99 to buy The Celiac Project documentary was written and produced by my good friend Michael Frolichstein. Through Michael’s personal celiac story and interviews with other people living with celiac and doctors, he sets out to separate fact from fiction about the gluten-free diet. A bag of this popcorn would go great with watching The Celiac Project documentary.
