Eating out while on a restricted diet is one of those challenges that can make you quit the AIP (Auto Immune Protocol) because “it’s too hard and I already cheated anyway”.
Being a big, international city, Milan has by far one of the most eclectic and interesting food scenes in Italy, mixing the local cult for quality with the multicultural ethnic trends and latest gastronomic currents.
In the homeland of pizza, pasta, biscotti and cannoli, one would assume that avoiding gluten has got to be one the toughest challenges.
Wrong. The truth is it’s quite the opposite.
From a health stand point, traveling is as much fun as it is challenging. Many times, staying in hotels or resorts sends us home with lots of beautiful memories… but with a few additional pounds as well!
You know I am a nomad. I am always on the move and I think meeting different cultures is the most exciting thing in the world.
As much as this experience can be fun and enriching, it can also be upsetting and disruptive to a healthy diet… so much that, at the end of the trip, you feel like all you want is stay at home, make salads and drink green juice.
