In Topic: Any Celiac Teens Out There?

27 March 2011 - 08:26 AM

Hi, my name is Danielle and I live in Brazil. I was officially diagnosed last week but have been gluten free for about 3 months now. I'm kind of new to all of this and would really appreciate some help. I have accidentally screwed up and eaten gluten a couple of times already and just feel very discouraged at times. Feel free to contact me! I could really use someone to talk to.

I wasn't even considering asking Lufthansa if they offer gluten free meals. I flew Iberia once and requested a gluten free meal in advance. When I got on the plane they brought me a plate of regular pasta. Needless to say, I didn't eat it.

Thanks for the ideas in terms of dried fruit and nuts and crackers. I will definitely try to make myself some snack packs before leaving.

I have never seen or heard of toaster bags...what are those?

In Topic: Gluten Free Restaurants In Barcelona

Hi,
Okay, I did spend quite a bit of time in Barcelona a few years ago but this was before I was diagnosed with Celiac. From what I remember, I ate mostly tapas and things like that. While they do eat a lot of bread, they also make a lot of dishes with rice or seafood which are probably safe. Also, at some of the larger restaurants there were waiters or managers who spoke English and it was very common to see menus in English. I'm sure you could talk to a manager about your allergy. Best of luck!
