What would you bring to a hotel with no fridge or microwave? I only know of one gluten-free friendly restaurant in the area. I'm traveling for work so I don't have a lot of options! Thanks!

Chicken packets (available in grocery stores in the tuna section) are good with crackers. Bring a few packets of mayo.

Minute rice cooks up nicely with the hot water from the coffee pot. You can get broth packets (I get mine at Trader Joe's) to add to the rice for flavor.

My kids like Spam in the single serve pouches but I know that is an aquired taste.

You can bring a box of cereal and then buy individual rice or soy milk boxes, they are the size of juice boxes and don't need refrigeration before being opened.

Hormel pepperoni doesn't need refrigeration before being opened either. We like those on crackers with mustard.

We like Lara bars and a bananas for breakfast.

If you like peanut butter that would be good to take. You can eat it with apples, spread it on a corn torilla and add a banana, spread it on crackers. I also put it on Hershey bars. Now I am really hungry for peanut butter......

The other two posters gave some good ideas. I just wanted to mention that if you contact the hotel & let them know about celiac they usually have a micro & fridge available for these reasons. When booking I always ask & have been told no but I call & speak to the manager & explain that this is under the disability act & I get one of each appliance in my room. SOmetimes I pay a small fee but most of the time it is just given.

I have never been refused after speaking to the manager....

Diabetic patients who need their insulin refrigerated get appliances are well.....

A few months ago I put a small George Foreman grill in my suitcase when I had to travel. As long as you can get to a grocery store (if you have a car) it works like a charm! :)

Trail mix of dried fruit and nuts

can of pink salmon

dried prunes, apricots, raisins, cranberries

something you baked, banana bread, crackers, non frosted cake

I have made muffins in custard bowls and brought them for the first mornings breakfast. I use almond flour and an egg and some fruit or nut or raisin, cinnamon so it is a whole meal.

a good cooler! with juice and tea in it to keep me from the soda machine.

some hotels have a public microwave.

I traval for work BY CAR and have a bag I call my kitchen. It has all the basics in it. a can opener, knife, cutting board, plates bowls snack bars, a few cans of fruit, meat, and trail mix. that way I can move fast and do not forget to pack the can opener. for a while I was buying one each time I went on a trip. lol

    • They didn't suggest any probiotic support. Ultimately the side-effects of this drug stabilized approaching the end of the course of treatment, though after it was finished, I was perhaps a bit improved, but no profound symptom resolution for me. Darn! The search goes on.
    • Thankyou I have found that I became intolerant of dairy and having cut it out feeling better but if I come into accidental consumption the symptoms are similar to that of gluten but not as severe .. Patience ay ?
    • I checked the Gluten Free Watchdog (I subscribe) and did not find this  particular product, but found the company's oat bran flakes which did not list any gluten ingrediants, but barley was found in testing well over 20 parts per million.  I would stick with certified gluten-free cereals, personally.  I think it is "hit or miss" on grain products.    
    • It is normal for other intolerances to become apparent once you remove gluten. I don't know why, perhaps as the immune system is free'd from chasing gluten it finds new targets? A lot of coeliacs find they have to cut out dairy as well for example. It's certainly my number one culprit for skin issues.  It also can take time for removing gluten to have its full effect, as antibodies will remain in the body for up to 6 months. So the reaction could still be to gluten in a way. 
    • I did not re-test my antibodies for a full year after diagnosis but I think your daughter should be checked again in 6 months.  If she does have celiac, and I really am sure she does regardless of what this doc seems to think, they should decrease in 6 months.  If she is fast healer, they could potentially be in the normal range but it varies from person to person. She did show damage in her small intestine but at 4 years of age, damage would not have progressed to the point where this doctor could be convinced it is Celiac.  They set the bar way too high. Kind of silly to require you to damage her insides further to prove it to the AMA. I think she should go gluten-free, as you have stated, and re-scope her in 6 months to see how the original damage looks then. If it is gone, then maybe that would convince them. The 4 out 5 criteria is not done in kids because, I am convinced, of liability issues. They just do not want to get sued if by some small chance, they diagnosed someone who did not have Celiac.  I think the odds of that are pretty slim, when you think about it. Even with a misdiagnosis, eating gluten free will never harm anyone. But as children are minors and cannot legally make medical decisions on their own like adults can, that rule is out for them.
