    You're on vacation. Unless you've got celiac or gluten intolerance, go for it.

    Totally yes! Eating local specialties is one of the best parts of travel.

    I have a wonderful schnitzel house less than half an hour from here, run by an Austrian. I use it for my 20% on occasion - my fave is the liver schnitzel - what a great way to get your offal!!

    I would try it. I would probably go in the restaurant and see if there was anything that sounded better to me though. I don't even know what Schnitzel is.

    Hell yeah, you could get knocked down by a bus tomorrow, life's too short so if you want something badly go ahead, just don't make it a regular habit !

    No, wheat is not worth it for me. I would enjoy the next few days of my holiday less because of the energy and mood-drop.

    Wheat is the one no-no when travelling. I've already decided that dairy-free rules will be nixed when travelling- no serious effects for me (just acne and post-nasal drip), especially when I'm relaxed as one usually is on holidays.

    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.
    Using low lectin/nightshade free primal to control autoimmune arthritis. (And lost 50 lbs along the way )

    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.
