Did you have infertility problems until you changed to a gluten-free “lifestyle?” Have any of you become pregnant after reading NFCA’s DoIHaveCeliac checklist?
So, the world is changing. Celiac disease and a gluten-free lifestyle are becoming main stream. We need to help our friends get diagnosed so they too can restore their health, reclaim their lives and become “Moms.”
Celiac Awareness Day at Phillies Phillies host Celiac Awareness Day
The National Foundation for Celiac Awareness and the Philadelphia Phillies are working together to raise awareness about Celiac Disease. Join NFCA and Celiac Groups in the Delaware Valley when the Phillies play the Atlanta Braves on Sunday, July 27th at 1:35 PM at Citizen’s Bank Park in Philadelphia. Gluten-free food and beverages will be available at a designated concession stand.
Purchase tickets by logging onto phillies.com/celiac or calling 215-463-5000, extension 5304. Enter the code “CELIAC” on the website or mention it when placing a phone order.
Proceeds from those specially purchased tickets go to raising awareness of celiac disease and funds for research. So, join the fun and help raise awareness of celiac disease. We can restore health and reclaim lives!
The website is www.glutenfreetravelsite.com and offers a multitude of resources right from the start. And it is very easy to use! The home page gives an overview about the website and how it will help you plan a trip. Their motto, Take a Vacation from Worry, is very appealing and makes you want to dive in to see what they have to offer in order to reduce any extra planning or worrying. They offer a link to search reviews of hotels, resorts, and restaurants from nine world regions. From there, you can pick exactly where your travel spot would be and see what the area has to offer.
For fun, I searched in California and found reviews that were about a Bed & Breakfast that offered a gluten-free menu, a Disney themed café that offered a variety of options from pizza to cake, and a pizzeria that offered a gluten-free menu containing pizza, pasta, and meatballs.
You can search through the many reviews and find if your travel destination contains any helpful reviews on dining or lodging. There is even an area in which you can submit a review if you have any information to provide other travelers. The website offers a featured review where it currently addresses the gluten-free successes on a Disney Wonder Cruise and every month they will highlight a new featured location.
The site also has a section entitled “Travel Resources,” which gives links, tips, and descriptions for planning a gluten-free trip. There is information regarding an overview of trip planning and finding information from a local Celiac association from where you are planning to travel, links for hotels, resorts, cruises, and airplanes that have gluten free meals or menus available, and suggestions for gluten-free restaurant books, grocery guides, cookbooks, and magazines.
Overall, the website is very interactive and informative. There are many travel reviews from all over the world—the possibilities of traveling gluten-free seem endless according to this website! And again, it is simple to use! All you have to do is click “search reviews”, choose your geographic location, and find all the relevant information you can!! There is even a place on the homepage where you can join the e-mail list to get updates on featured hotels, travel offers, and restaurants.
So if you are one of the many people making plans this summer for a relaxing trip, a weekend getaway, or traveling on business, make sure you go to www.glutenfreetravelsite.com to help plan your trip and see what your destination spot has to offer! It is a clever tool that I know I will use from now on when I plan any trips and I hope you do to!
