As someone who has recently connected the dots to realize maybe gluten isn't her friend, the idea of leaving my house and my kitchen, full of safe food, was terrifying, but, alas, being a hermit is no fun, and I had college tours to attend in both New York and Boston. As a devout planner, I decided to quell my anxiety with research and felt a bit better.
Armed with plenty of safe place to eat that not only offered gluten free but (mostly) healthy foods, I got on the plane. The food turned out to be one of my favorite parts of the trip. I wanted to take a minute to highlight the deliciousness of New York City, I just wanted to say that no one else in my family has to eat gluten free, so they had much higher standards for foods where they could have the real deal, and I managed to blow them away with some of my picks. Gluten free can be totally delicious, and if you have to eat this way, it is in no way culinary death sentence.
