Natalie White from Defiance, Ohio, is a foodie, a homeschooling mom, an amazingly talented baker and cook, and she just happens to make everything gluten-free because she has Celiac Disease. Natalie also loves eating out and knows some of the best Celiac-friendly places in Toledo. Adam Hansen from Toledo is a downtown businessman who has endeavored to raise awareness of restaurant choices in the downtown area, helping the region thrive for everyone.
This jam-packed episode covers a lot of ground. We talk about how the holidays can be difficult, (or easy!) for someone with Celiac, what Celiac is, what gluten is, what happens when someone who is Celiac eats gluten, how to survive the holidays with a food allergy, and lots and lots of Toledo dining suggestions for those who wish to eat out and avoid allergic reactions.
An important tip: If avoiding gluten, always look for the Certified GF label. When dining out, look for locally-owned and/or ethic quisine. They are more likely to understand and be able to avoid allergens if requested.
The dining establishments mentioned in this episode include:
Fowl and Fodder
Yer Mom's House of Eats
Kengo Sushi & Yakatori
Original Sub Shop
