One of the blessings of a celiac disease diagnosis is that it encourages us to explore diets that do not put an emphasis on the use of wheat, barley, rye, triticale and oats. Doing so is a wonderful way of appreciating other cultures and expand our dining horizons.
Whether you are dining out at a restaurant abroad or exploring restaurants in your own town, celiactravel.com offers gluten-free restaurant cards to print out and take with you, wherever you go. Available in 63 languages at celiactravel.com/cards.
Links to languages spoken in some of our favourite local, ethnic restaurants can be found below:
