Restaurant Sleuthing: My Tips and Tricks for Finding Gluten-Free Restaurants

Oftentimes, when I am speaking with readers on social media or talking with gluten-free friends in real life, people always ask how I am able to find so many gluten-free eats wherever I go. The truth is, that finding gluten-free restaurants is almost a part time job, and requires as much research as any of the research papers I have to write for class. 

There is so much fear surrounding eating out gluten-free that it can be absolutely overwhelming to consider all the options and still feel 100% comfortable with taking a chance. If there's anything I've learned as a blogger it's that gluten-free eats can be found almost anywhere, you just need to do research and ask questions. 

I've assembled the following resources and tactics I use to help me find the restaurants that I review over on the main blog. I hope they are helpful, and invite you to share your tips and tricks to tackling the challenge of eating out.

My Top Must-See Washington D.C. Attractions

It's been awhile since I posted in this "behind the scenes" section of the blog, but my writing itch has reemerged, and I've had a flood of new post ideas. Since the main blog focuses on food- restaurants and products- I figured I'd veer off the beaten path a bit to explore areas beyond the restaurants and products I review on the main blog: travel, recipes, and other tips about how to make life a little more manageable while living with dietary restrictions. 

This post was born of my many trips to Washington D.C. in search of foodie finds. While I spend a lot of time eating in the District, I spend a fair amount of time playing tourist too, and want to share my favorite places in the city- which might not be the most popular ones in guide books, but are ones worth seeking out. 

Washington D.C. is such an incredible city, rich in history and culture, with endless things to see and do. From museums and galleries to national buildings where the United States is run on a daily basis, any itinerary can and should be jam-packed to make the most of your visit to the nation's Capitol.
