My sister-in-law Elyse started a new website this summer with the help of my niece Abby, who is making a summer job of helping get the site populated. The site is a travel guide to finding restaurants that have menus friendly to vegetarians, vegans, folks avoiding gluten, paleo enthusiasts, those keeping kosher or people who just like food! I’m betting you fall into at least ONE of those categories, so check out The Traveling Tomato.
And in case you are wondering what paleo enthusiast means, I had to look it up so I’ll share: paleo eating refers to a diet that mimics the diets of our caveman ancestors and includes meats, seafood, vegetables, fruits and nuts.
The Traveling Tomato has several ways to search for a place to eat using its interactive map. In addition to listing restaurants, they eventually would like to provide reviews of restaurants for readers and advertising opportunities for restaurants. You can help them build the database by suggesting restaurants to be added, and you can also write a guest post about one of your favorites.
That’s what I did last week. I wrote about my favorite place on earth to eat pizza and the fact that it has a gluten-free crust option. You can read my post here. It’s the first time I’ve written a guest post on another blog and it’s about two of my favorite things: Columbia, Missouri, and Shakespeare’s Pizza!
