Hmm, some of my replies aren't showing up.....

I was telling my grandson yesterday that I had had the Playmate Ice Chest I carry with me for 20 years, and it really makes life easier.  I can only eat fruits and vegetables because of serious food allergies, so it is a challenge.  I take orange juice in small containers with a twist-off lid, and even eat frozen orange juice with a spoon.  Pickles are good to take.  I take green salad mixed with a topping of sauteed garlic, green onions & mushrooms, and some Walden Farm's mayonnaise.  Walden Farms products have no calories, carbs or protein, and there are syrups; jams; marshmallow, chocolate & caramel toppings; salad dressings and dips.  You can see the selection on the internet at Walden Farms.  Corn tortillas work and any soy product that doesn't contain wheat.  So many of the "vegetarian" replacement products have "vital wheat gluten."  Rice or soy ice cream is a possibility if you keep the ice chest really cold.  I also eat Vegan Gourmet soy cheese, but only the mozarella.  The others have someting in them that bothers me.  At Trader Joe's you can get "This is not a tub of sour cream, this is a tub of non-dairy spread."  Food for Life makes gluten free English Muffins.  Purely Decadent makes vanilla soy ice cream bars covered with chocolate.  And I found the best veggie burger the other day at Jimbo's Market--called "Hilary's Veggie Burger."

So good.   I make meatless enchiladas, tacos or tamales, and sometimes have a small serving of rice or beans.  Fresh fruits & vegetables with dip and cooked vegetables that were leftover from other meals also work.   I've been eating gluten free & milk and dairy free since 2000.   Best wishes to you!

I find that if you can heat it, making a lot of gluten free pasta, or rice, is good when you're going to work or something. I unfortunately work in a sandwich shop, so I always have to make sure to pack dinner. I also love dried fruit and chocolate rice bars to snack on. :)

I would like to find a food co-op around here, I've heard great things! I never thought about hard boiled eggs, that would be easy to pack! Where did you get your 12 volt oven??

A camping store, or on the internet.  Kool=tron lunchbox was my first.  My second was a Burton. I was thrilled that it could heat to 350 F It conked out way too soon, but mine got bumped around alot, so perhaps that wrecked it.

Raw almonds, an apple, and hard cheese are some of my go-to's to carry around when out. When I have time and need more food, I'll pack a salad with homemade dressing, some precooked chicken and veg, and maybe a yogurt. I also find a scoop of whey protein powder to mix with water can be good in a pinch, such as on long plane rides or when stuck late at work.

anything that will go in tupperware or a zip-bag and won't spoil too quickly. Instead of sandwiches I'll often make rice balls wrapped in roasted (unseasoned) seaweed, or guacamole/hummus and chips. Fruit, nuts, cooked meats, etc etc. Anything you can eat with your fingers.

For longer trips, taking a cooler with foods and staying somewhere with a small kitchen or at least a microwave is a good idea.

And always have a Larabar or something on you. Even though I usually forget to replace my emergency purse stash.

Ooh, how do you make your rice balls? Just plain rice or do you add something to make them stick?

Get it to sticky rice consistancy.

 

Go on youtube and watch some onigiri recipes.

 

My favorite is from cookingwithdog:

 

 

Be warned they use gluteny things, but you can substitute and watch how its formed.

ooh those look good.

 

Get yourself some sushi rice. Cook it (not too much water!). Add a tablespoon or so of rice vinegar and mix in. Let it sit until it cools off.

You can mix stuff in with it (preferably before it cools off) or you can stuff it with stuff.

Usually I use half a sheet of nori, spread out some rice, put the stuff you want in it on top (not too much) and roll-er up (like a mini sushi roll!)

And the stuff can be cooked. Doesn't have to be raw like sushi.  I put a lot of random things in nori.

(sorry, my cooking methods are highly unscientific)

Thanks!

We have a family friend who is Korean (and has moved) and she made the best rice balls. I want those rice balls. Now.

And my son loves sushi, and rice....

I don't know where you'd get them, but one of my Korean students once gave me this triangle mold to make onigiri with. You put the mold in the middle of the nori sheet, some rice in the mold, then the stuffing in the middle, them more rice. take of the mold, and fold up the nori into a cute sandwichlike triangle!

 

I think this thread has morphed into something for the cooking forum...

My Japanese professor made the best onigiri. I don't know what she put in them (chicken, anko (red bean paste), and something else) but they were to die for.
