Travel Gluten Free gives you valuable information from finding a safe restaurant to knowing what food is safe to eat when you travel; I'll be with you every step of the way on your gluten-free journey. Lead your gluten-free life, don't let being gluten-free lead your life. Enjoy Food, Enjoy Travel, and Enjoy Life with your show host, Elikqitie!


In this episode, I've got Matt Bzedyl from the Gluten Free Street Gang back again! Matt has been running the account Gluten Free Street Gang on Instagram for over two years. His account takes a humorous look at the realities of eating on a restricted diet. Initially inspired when Starbucks removed their gluten-free breakfast sandwich from their menu, Matt's Instagram account has been fortunate to grow considerably since his first post poking fun at Starbucks! 


Matt eats gluten-free as he was convinced his dietary issues were a result of ingesting gluten for years. When he was diagnosed with IBS, Matt learned that his digestive issue is with wheat specifically. Although he cannot eat wheat, Matt still maintains a gluten-free diet to solve his dietary problems. He is currently splitting his time between the UK and Massachusetts. He is looking to incorporate more food content going forward to highlight that it is possible to eat well while traveling on a restricted diet!


We talk about his experience with two COVID lockdowns in London, the photo opportunities COVID has provided both in London and Utah and what we love about riding bikes as a form of transportation in London. Matt also enjoys the London tube and bus network and using the London cab system to get around London as the cabbies are very knowledgeable about the quickest route to get you to your destination.


When you want to eat great food, Europe is the place to get high-quality, delicious food that you can’t get in the United States. EU foods have a much higher standard, so many Celiacs who can’t eat dairy in the US but can eat dairy in Europe. Matt says, “If you go into many of the big grocery stores, there’s a good part of the store dedicated to ready-made food. All of them that have this product also have a sizable gluten-free section.”


Listen in to find out Matt’s favorite restaurant options in the UK, including Greg’s Fast Food, Menadu Bakery, and how to ship them back on the airplane on the ride home overseas!
