For those with food allergies who like to travel, conversion with restaurant servers in unfamiliar languages can be a challenge. Allerglobel hopes to alleviate that a bit by creating food allergy cards in a language of your choice to carry with you. How brilliant is that?
Simply check off the allergies you have, choose the language you want to have the cards in, download & print, and voila!
The New York Times recently published an article that touches on some things I’ve been thinking about lately. In The Overlooked Diagnosis of Celiac Disease, Carolyn Sayre discusses how long it often takes to get a confirmed diagnosis, and how many people are likely going undiagnosed.

How do you manage to eat gluten-free while you’re travelling? How about when travelling in a different country?
Last week I was in Las Vegas for an internet marketing conference. I know, the US is so close it’s hard to think of it as a different country, but once you cross the border food can be very different.

How do you deal with family members who don’t understand that you can’t eat certain foods?
