I am planning a Montana to Pensacola trip in Feb. I am wondering the same things. We (5 of us) are all gluten free and my 17 year old daughter is very sensitive to cc-ing. I plan to try to get glutinfreeda burritos and pizza rolls to take the place of eating fast food and bag or box salad with gluten-free dressings, cheese and sliced turkey or ham. I think we will travel with cereal and milk (we are not lactose intolerant) mary's gone crackers and cream cheese. Apples and peanut butter. I don't know what else. I am really afraid of restaurants.
I am Lawana, Mom to Mary-Hannah (Andres' beloved). It has taken me a while to get over here and check out the forum. You can all imagine what a sweet surprise it was to read the posts that Andres wrote. I have been immersed in helping my daughter get rest and rein in her life to allow the rest her doctor recommended and revamping my kitchen (with help from Andres' mom) as well as preparing meals with excellent nutrition that taste good enough to tempt her still queasy tummy. Now I am here as well hoping to learn as much as I can from you folks.
Hi Andres. I finally got over here. I am so thankful that you are learning about Celiac. I am even more touched reading your posts. I look forward to learning more together. I am also looking forward to sharing our first gluten free Thanksgiving with you! BTW to Andres and the forum, I think I am seeing some improvements in the way Andres' beloved looks and feels already. It has just been a little over a month with only one accidental glutening. I think M-H is losing the dark circles. She is no longer cold all the time and though she is still sleeping 12 hours per day, she seems to wake up rested!!! I am thanking God for this diagnosis. I feel badly that we didn't figure it out years ago but I am thankful that she seems to be responding so well.
I would love any hints for moms changing over the entire family to gluten free. I also look forward to meeting you all.
BTW Dre' what are your favorite Thanksgiving foods?
