RL's Gluten Free Travels: Knoxville, Tennessee

Post by: RL

Recently I had the chance to spend a few days in Knoxville, Tennessee for a conference. While the conference was amazing, the gluten free, dairy free, vegetarian options were not. I ate mostly salad and fruit and the gluten free snacks I had brought for myself (Glutino pretzels, Kinnikinnick animal crackers, and the most accessible- Lays regular potato chips). Most vegetarian options were pasta based and obviously not gluten free. My big moment came when I was able to acquire a baked potato!!! I was able to eat in the hotel restaurant and enjoyed a nice piece of salmon (yes, this vegetarian eats fish).

Roman's Pizza
Upon my departure I found out that Knoxville boosts a pizza joint that supposedly makes gf pizza that is so good the celiac assoc of Knoxville regularly holds there meetings there. If I ever make it back to knoxville ill be sure to try it! Click here to check out their website.
