Heather Kristian Strang | Gluten-Free Rolls in Brazil


05 Oct / Gluten-Free Rolls in Brazil

During my recent 2.5 week trip to Brazil, I was confronted with a common travel problem for those of us eating wheat-free, dairy-free and low sugar — there’s simply nothing to eat when traveling abroad. The entire Brazilian diet seems to stem from flour products. Oy, vey. What’s a girl to do?

Luckily, I loaded up on rice and beans, chicken and lots of veggies.
The day BEFORE I left Brazil, I discovered pao de queijo, made out of manioca flour (gluten-free!). While pao de queijo does include milk products, I was so thrilled to eat bread, I ate it anyway (and the cheese didn’t bother my tummy one bit!).

Although I can find a mix with cheese to purchase, what I want to do is make the rolls and use my almond cheese. Stay tuned for more developments on that!

FYI – My blog will now return to its regular schedule.
Eat on!

Oh, and be sure to send any product ideas or recipes that you would like to share with the wheat-free, dairy-free and low sugar community.

Happy Eating!
Heather 🙂

    Just telling that you can do de Pao de Queijo without de "queijo" [cheese]!!! I worked in a vegan restaurant here in Brazil, in Sao Paulo on the last year, and dyscovered this "Pao sem queijo"… Hahaha…

    I work in Abadiania now.. I hope can open a vegan place here!

    Any question about recipe, just ask me.
