A typical meal in Moldovan restaurants can consist of the traditional family-style foods eaten everyday in this country. Typically the meal will start with select vegetables (sliced cucumber, tomatoes) and Brinza cheese, a salty version of similar crumbly cheeses we may see in America. After this course, mama liga (a corn mush similar to Latin polenta) is paired with more Brinza cheese, pulled pork or other meats, and potatoes. If you are interested in visiting Moldova the food is delicious! You will certainly not be disappointed!

Many people may not notice the short mention of her book The G Free Diet, on Wikepedia. This book contains everything from her story of diagnosis to how people can treat this illness or toleration of this common ingredient in everyday life. This book is great for those who need a little encouragement if you are a newly diagnosed celiac or know anyone that has this newly-found disease.

Even holding a wild hedgehog can prove itself to be an easy task. If you are anywhere in the natural habitat of these cute creatures, go out at night and see them running around. You might just get lucky and be able to catch one, take my word for it! :)
