Who is TheIsraelBites?
My name is Jazzie and after living between Jerusalem and the U.S. for two years, in the fall of 2018 I packed my bags and left America to start my adult life in Israel. Living in Israel and navigating being gluten free is no easy task, so I created TheIsraelBites to provide English speakers with information about surviving Celiac Disease in the Middle East.
But, TheIsraelBites is more than just a resource for places to eat within the country. This page is also home to my favorite recipes, travel tips, and more…..
You can find all my favorite products, snacks, and more on my new Amazon Storefront!
Here is a map of some of my favorite places around the world:
I found out I have celiac just before heading off to college after over a year of being constantly sick. I had lost 30 lbs in the process and my body had stopped functioning properly. Following my diagnosis, I battled disordered eating for many years and on of my goals is to use this platform to raise awareness that eating disorders come in all shapes and sizes.
