    Absolutely. Foods in their home country are one of the best things about traveling. Anyway, I love Schnitzel and I surely would not miss having it at the original place.

    It's pounded veal which is dipped in a batter of eggs and a little flour, usually with lemon juice. Oh Yumm. I'd certainly not miss that.

      There is an amazing little German place about 1.5 hours from where I live. Whenever I am in the area I always get the Schnitzel. It is perfection!

      I don't have celiac disease and my gut health is now pretty decent. I am primal in order to enjoy my life - that includes indulging in some really great non-primal food every now and again.

        OK. So... I did it. Haha. :-)

        The thing is this: I'm ALWAYS on vacation. I work online so I've been traveling 11 months a year for the past 3 years, so it's kind of hard for me to use the "on vacation" excuse.

        I had the Shnitz and then I told myself "my insulin level is high anyway so screw it!" and ordered a chocolate cake too. It was NOT worth it.

        I felt terrible the whole evening and I'm not even celiac or anything... didn't regret the Shnitz (that's how I call it) but regretted the cake.

        Now that I think about it, maybe I AM celiac and never knew it. I used to be low carb but taking out wheat / grains is new to me and I have to say that it really changed my life.

        Thanks guys!

          Years before Coeliac diagnosis, I nearly died choking on a piece of schnitzel. Had to pull it out of my throat - good fifteen centimeters of it.

          Never ate it again, don't miss it.
          Dark chocolate and coffee, running through my veins...

                Schnitzel I would try. Some regional specialties aren't worth it to me though, even though I don't have any intolerances. I've been in the Netherlands for a year and I haven't tried bitterballen, pannenkoeken, croquettes, stroopwafel, etc. So much of the "you gotta try it" Dutch stuff is just unappealing fried stuff.

                They got it right with the raw herring though!

                I giggled at "I got the schnitz"

                  What about falafel in Israel? With the pita. Would you go for it? :-)

                  Having an excuse to have a pizza every day is a good reason to fly to Italy :-)

                    Or learn to make your own as tasty as any with gluten in it.
