12 Mar Find Me Gluten-Free App
This app is absolutely indispensable for people with celiac disease. The app shows ratings by users for restaurants. There is a free version and a premium version for $19.99 per year. The premium version of the app allows you to search by most celiac friendly establishments in your area.
This was one of the first resources I found after my diagnosis, and reading reviews of what others have experienced at various restaurants helps to make dining out less stressful. I have even discovered some new favorite restaurants since using this app!
There is an option for a three-day trial period for the premium version, so I decided to check it out. I’m very glad I did; the filter for most celiac-friendly locations alone is worth the cost, in my opinion. The premium version lets you know if there is a dedicated kitchen space and/or fryer for preparing gluten-free food as well as how many votes an establishment received for being celiac-friendly. There were many results for bakeries and restaurants I didn’t see on the free version – including several celiac-friendly Mexican restaurants (which I think are hard to find)! Some will require a bit of travel to get there, but there are also plenty close by my home. The reviews are much more recent, too. All in all, I think it’s definitely worth it to go with the premium version.
