Gluten Intolerance Group of Marin June 2013 Meeting

TRAVELING GLUTEN FREE
Originally from Scotland, Laura now lives in San Francisco. Bit by the travel bug early in life, she refused to let her celiac diagnosis in 2009 curtail her love of exploring the world. Laura will be joining us in June after having spent the month of May in New Zealand.
Says Laura (who, being from the UK, favours British spellings): “Staying safely gluten free can be difficult enough when you’re at home in your crumb free kitchen never mind when you’re travelling somewhere new. Each country has their own unique gluten free labelling laws, different gluten free products and varying levels of awareness of coeliac disease and gluten free dieting. Travelling is arguably the most arduous area of gluten free life for coeliacs hence my decision to start my website. I’m writing it for you. I want you to spend your time making wonderful travel memories, not searching in vain for something safe to eat!”
Also featured at the meeting will be free samples related to travel so you can take them on your next trip!
