Living Gluten Free in New Brunswick

Sandwich from Lunch Box in Vernazza, Cinque Terres

I haven’t posted anything in awhile but just have to share this bit of info about travelling in Italy and being gluten-free. I had heard that children are tested for Celiac before going to school in Italy but I was still leary about how I was going to make out. I had printed out a card in Italian explaining that I was Celiac. I had saved all the Italian words for wheat, rye, barley, malt, etc in my phone. Turns out I didn’t use any of it other than occasionally using the words ‘senza glutine’. Most people could speak English or French and everyone I spoke to was aware of gluten, a lot of the packaging indicated guten free in English as well as Italian. Only once was I almost fed gluten. I was served a soup which to me looked like barley. The waiter told me I was safe that it was ‘farro’. Thank goodness for google. 😃 I immediately googled farro and found out that it is spelt and definitely has gluten. I showed the info to the waiter and he took it to show the chef. Saved by google once again. I did eat a lot of pasta in Italy but was not able to have a pizza. I had read that there was some very good gluten free pizza but I did not come across it in my travels. I did have a very good sandwich in Cinque Terres … wish I had of ordered two of them. 😃 So, if you are planning a trip to Italy, don’t worry about being able to eat. Including some pics of a few of the things I ate.

At a vineyard wine tasting … only difference was the others had bread instead of rice cake.

One of the many pasta dishes.

Chicken and salad

A yummy dessert … for the gluten and gluten free people.

I noticed this at Shoppers Drug Mart this week.  Didn’t buy it so can’t tell you if it is good or not but interesting to see another Gluten Free product.  If you have tried it let us know how it is.

A new product for me … President’s Choice Gluten Free All-Purpose Flour … the best prepackaged gluten free flour I have tried. I usually make my own gluten free flour mix but someone suggested the PC brand, I tried it and  it, haven’t made my flour since. Not saying I wont make my own again but it is so convenient to use the PC brand, it even has the Xanthum gum already in it. Every thing I have made has turned out perfectly. I have not tried bread with it yet. Worth trying it friends.
