I know the feeling when I went gluten-free 4 months ago I was scared to death to eat out.  I have only eaten at 2 restaurants Wendys and only had a baked potato and Red Robin had a hamburger on gluten-free bun and steamed broccoli.  I had no issues with either place.  Hon, no need to starve yourself to death all fresh fruit and veggies, and meat not pre seasoned are all gluten free.  When I first went gluten-free I started with what I already had on hand, I was surprised with the items I found I already had that were gluten-free.  Have you checked out the safe ingredient list?  http://www.celiac.com/articles/181/1/Safe-Gluten-Free-Food-List-Safe-Ingredients/Page1.html

 

Here is another one to read:

You won't starve. You may have to fix your own food and bring it along but that's why coolers and lunch boxes were invented. :)

There are some threads on here about what foods people eat for snacks, breakfast, lunch, dinner, when traveling by plane, by car, ship and even a bike and a train thread. Maybe those will give you some ideas?

Thanks for the links. It just frustrating when I'm on the go. I am back in school with 3 kids 10 and under and it's so hard to pack stuff for me and have their stuff done too. I know it will get better. It's just so overwhelming right now and I am just having a very blue day. Thanks for your support

one day at a time - if you look too hard at the big picture you will go bonkers!  do some reading on here, hit the cooking forum (they have some handy lunch-to-go ideas on there just search it) and take care of you.  it's a big change, treat it as such :)   you'll be ok - you're in a good place to get advice, hugs, and just vent.  this is the place where baby steps are ok and small victories are huge.

Blue days... yes, we've all had so many of those.

 

If you need something to fill you with calories I recommend peanut butter on a gluten-free cracker or bread. Literally 20seconds preperation time, a tasty snack which is calories dense. These kept me going. Then I discovered enzymes which allowed me to digest these calories!

 

The first months are the hardest, but things will get better in terms of symptoms and getting into a rhythm of this new lifestyle.
