Dr. Leffler also shares his candid thoughts about what the future looks like for the celiac community.
Last week Mike shared the details of his exciting trip to Madison, WI. The following week he packed up his family and went to Milwaukee to take in a Major League Baseball game and enjoy the downtown area. Although it seemed that there were going to be lots of great gluten free places to visit on the journey, there were also some challenges to finding safe options along the way. Learn about how their family's quickly planned trip had some highs, lows and avoidable mistakes. Get Mike's top restaurant picks and places that you might want to skip.
Mike took a couple of consecutive weekends to visit two great Wisconsin cities and see what they had to offer from a gluten free perspective. First up is Madison for a softball tournament. While there, Mike and his family had some amazing Venezuelan food and gluten free pizza, allowing them to eat like everyone else (and skip the lines). In next week's episode, their journey to Milwaukee at times turned into a scavenger hunt for safe meals.
