Starving In The Airport
Posted 22 December 2009 - 07:11 AM
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).
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.

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.
