Starving In The Airport
0

6 posts in this topic

Ugh - I spent 5 hours in Seattle airport on my way to holidays here and I let it all get to me. I was so hungry ! I did have a baked potato & some chili @ Wendy's when we got there but that only lasted so long. We really live in a gluten-y world !

Ok, so I could have had more Wendy's and maybe I'm fussy. I hate eating the same thing. It just didn't help that there were so many food places and so litle to eat ! <_< Even most of the junk food had allergen warnings. On the way home I'm packing food in my carry on - didn't think I could travelling in from Canada.

Ok, I had some tuna & salmon sushi and got glutened (didn't use the soy sauce - must have been cross contamination). Ugh. Not helpful when you're already tired (and travelling with kids).

:P Ok, rant over....Merry Christmas !

That's what terrifies me about travelling - and I LOVE to travel. Haven't done it gluten-free yet. I'm sure it will be interesting...but I'd definitely carry some snacks along! Have a Merry Christmas anyway. :)

Actually certain travel is not difficult at all. I have traveled internationally since diagnosis, twice, and had no problems. You absolutely have to carry some snacks with you like fruit/dried fruit or nuts. I also am lucky that the airport I fly out of has some good restaurants with gluten-free menu's so I can eat before the flight leaves.

A meal should take a person at least 6 hours before they get hungry again and then you have the snacks.

When eating out anywhere, cut back to basics and have a protein with fresh veggies and a potato. It may not be the most exotic of foods but if prepared well, it'll be good, warm and filling. Certain destinations are more gluten-free friendly than others so I tend to go to those places and have had little to worry about.

Yeah, SEATAC isn't the best place to find food.

If I'm traveling, I ALWAYS pack plenty of food. (Think at least 1000 calories worth.) Even in airports, as long as it's not liquid, it's fine.

If I'm more than 30 minutes away from home I have some food with me ha-ha! I have to eat small amounts throughout the day. When I travel I bake up a breakfast bread that has onions, ham or bacon, cheese (well now I'm not supposed to eat dairy either). I add some herbs. It seems to work (appeal to my palette) anytime of day. I also bake up some sweet muffins. I have to know I will ALWAYS have something the moment I start getting hungry, otherwise I get cranky and difficult to be around! :0) My husband will vouch for that!

lol I get cranky when travelling as it is... add hunger to that and my hubby would rather leave me at the airport :P I always bring a bag of trail mix with me. Sesame ginger snaps, real fruits, trail mix, etc. can be purchased in airports (when desperate) and are usually gluten-free (read labels, of course). And yes, you can bring food in your carry-on as long as it isn't liquid.

Happy Holidays :)
