It's funny, it seems that when I travel I stock up on all kinds of stuff:

more Larabars than I'll need, instant oatmeal (GlutenFrida is my saviour! I even pack a little jar with sugar/almonds/cinnamon that I put in it. Just add boiling water), nuts, chocolate, fruit if I'm travelling domestically, etc. I always bring my own meal on the plane, etc etc.


Then when I'm home all that flies out the window and I end up starving and inopportune moments. This thread is a great reminder to keep it together, also why I stocked up on larabars last night.

(the starving usually results in me making a haphazard desperate meal when I get home, and then I wonder why I just ate rice with a lump of peanut butter on top or something ridiculous...)

~ Be a light unto yourself. ~ - The Buddha

- Gluten-free since March 2009 (not officially diagnosed, but most likely Celiac). Symptoms have greatly improved or disappeared since.
- Soy intolerant. Dairy free (likely casein intolerant). Problems with eggs, quinoa, brown rice

- mild gastritis seen on endoscopy Oct 2012. Not sure if healed or not.
- Family members with Celiac: Mother, sister, aunt on mother's side, aunt and uncle on father's side, more being diagnosed every year.

I carry Sesame Snaps 180 calories so that can keep me going and it's in a small package that is handy to carry.

I also cut a banana in half and put it in a sandwich box when I go out.

I usually have a package of Corn Thins around. They are good with peanut butter. Natural or soy-free peanut butter of course.


If I was going to put some stuff aside, it would be dry beans, peas, lentils type of things.  Actually, if you grid your own pea flour it makes real nice instant pea soup with just some hot water and a few spices like salt, pepper and garlic powder.


True North nut snacks are good too.


I usually have some kind of gluten-free Chex cereal and almond milk on hand.



Corn tortillas.


Usually a bag of oranges or apples etc around too.

Sometimes  pre-cooked ham in the frig.

That and some Daiya cheese and a dried egg and you have a nice quick meal.



Sometimes some chips like Food Should Taste Good or Mission corn tortillas.

And sweet potatoes to microwave. 7 minutes and they are ready.

This is stuff at home, I don't go anywhere that require stocking a car or office. It's also dairy free, and chocolate free and grain-free.


-Fruits: apples, bananas, oranges, grapefruit, grapes, whatever's on-sale and doesn't require lots of prep (like, say, a pineapple)

-Meat:  Roast is a super easy, if long, meal to prepare, and if you buy a giant roast, you have leftovers that can last a week. Snacking on roast is as easy as opening the fridge and tearing/cutting off a hunk of meat.

-Vanilla flavoured Almond Breeze.

-Natural peanut butter mixed with honey. Sometimes dip an apple into it.

-Eggs. Well, these require cooking, but they're fried or boiled soooo quickly.


-Carrot sticks

-Pre-mixed salad, pre-washed, add your favorite gluten-free dressing, homemade or otherwise.

-Squash, potato, sweet potato, as leftovers. I love all of these mashed with some fried onion. Make a whole giant squash or pounds at a time for lots of yummy snacking.

-gluten-free bacon. You can microwave bacon, it's so easy!

-I believe coconut and apple-cinnamon larabars are grain free too, but haven't had any in awhile.


Forgot one, can of coconut milk wish sugar stirred in.

If you're going through hell, keep going!

I am in love with Kind bars.  They're so good, and I can fit two of them in my purse at a time.  At this point, I've got a Kind bar stashed in my car, my laptop bag, my purse, and my desk at school.  They taste so good, and my students are always begging for a piece!

In my purse there's always Lara or Kind Bars.  Also small packets of tamari soy sauce.


At work I stash more bars, lays stax, Progresso Corn Chowder or Clam Chowder, Amy's gluten-free Frozen Entrees, Nutella (to spread on apples, or just eat by the spoonful!), and a box of Chex.


At home I stash most of the above, plus hummus and carrots, and dried fruit.  My problem is that some stuff I buy doesn't last long.  Like I can eat a whole bag of Glutino yogurt or chocolate covered pretzels in one setting.  It's a good thing their bags are smaller than the regular ones.

Issues related to gluten: depression, low iron, hair loss, positive ana test for lupus, low vitamin D, headache, sinusitis, environmental allergies, brain fog, GI problems, weight gain....the list goes on....
