Oatbox January Review

I received my first Oatbox last month and have been super happy with the granola I received and was excited to try out two new flavours. Granola and yogurt is one of my favourite breakfasts or snack. I am also a big fan of eating granola by the handful! 

OatBox sends out two 380g bags of granola in their two monthly featured flavours each month. It costs $20 a month, including taxes and shipping. You can also preview the flavours and list ingredients and have the option to switch out a bag with one of their regular granola blends. There are also certified gluten-free granola blends available.  Oatbox also provides flexibility allowing you to skip boxes if you don’t need more granola. In your first box you get a cute little glass container to take your granola on the go with you! Check out my December review to see what you receive in your first month! Take note that you will receive the monthly featured flavours not the December flavours I received.

I am so happy with this box I have continued my subscription and am receiving another box mid January!

This post will be focusing on travelling in France, check out this post on traveling Spain gluten free! Continue reading

Traveling Spain Gluten Free

 

Traveling with allergies and food restrictions is never easy, and when you add a language barrier it can be quite overwhelming. After travelling Europe for 5 weeks with my best friend who has celiac disease, and must therefore avoid gluten, I was able witness some of the challenges she faced. She found very few updated resources for travelling Europe as a celiac which inspired me to write about our experiences . This post will be focusing on travelling Spain gluten free; watch for future posts that include France and Germany.

Language cards were very useful in Spain. In addition to having language cards saved on your phone, I suggest printing some out so the waiter can take it back to the kitchen. In our experience we found this very helpful as there were several occasions where the menu indicated something was gluten-free but when the dish came out it was not. Continue reading
