Traveling while gluten-free can be hard. I spend a lot of time packing my own snacks and eating salads. I don’t have anything against salads. Actually, I usually have a big salad for lunch! However, when everyone around you is chowing down on delicious-looking carbs, and you’re sadly poking a piece of iceberg lettuce with a fork? Yeah, no.
Nashville is about two hours away from my home base of Chattanooga, Tennessee. My best friend recently moved to a Nashville suburb, so when we were passing through after a trip to Kentucky, I was able to meet her for lunch. Now, Taylor has been one of my biggest supports since going gluten free. She’s suffered through more weird homemade gluten free concoctions than I can count, and has dutifully tried each new restaurant I’ve found with a gluten-free menu.
When I mentioned that I was going to be in Nashville, she asked where we should eat lunch. “I usually get Fido,” I said, referencing the best gluten-free option near my Vanderbilt doctors.
“They’re busy on weekends. Look up AMOT Eatery!” she replied.
