Julia Andrea, gluten-free vegan abroad

As a gluten-free vegan, I worried I would have trouble finding good food to eat here in Italy. Instead, Italy has fed my market addiction – I got this huge eggplant, a bunch of bananas, enough kale for a small family, and some beautiful tomatoes for four euros. Food here is both delicious and affordable!

Julia goes to St Mary’s College of Maryland and is studying at the Umbra Institute in Perugia through The College of Global Studies at Arcadia.
