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 :)

    • I found my gas issues were caused by carbs, and sugars, something about how the bacteria in my gut changed and started making me gassy and extremely bloated when they got a hold of any thing more then a tbsp of grains, beans, fruit, or starch carbs. And no amount of medicine helped. Changed to 1/4 servings of those and mostly protein, fat diet. As for vitamin supplements I found I have to take B vitamin supplements 3 times a day to not go zombie mode. I personally found Liquid Vitamins Energy & Stress and the Nero-logic from them helps along with the occasional 1/2 bottle of 5 hour. As to carbonated water I avoided it when bloated cause it made me feel worse.
    • Butterbean, do go have a read of the dermatitis herpetiformis section.  See if anyone's story sound familiar to what you're experiencing.
    • Hi all. Well, it's been around twenty days since I've been taking Gas-X like meds (with simethicone), but no relief. Maybe I should drink bigger dose... Currently, I'm taking 80 mg four times per day.
      I'm so exhausted, both mentally and physically... Anyway, I have two questions:
      First, is it good or bad to drink mineral/carbonated water if you have severe trapped gas like me?
      Second: Is it possible to regain some physical strength/relieve fatigue with vitamin supplements? Thanks in advance.
    • I have had so many issues with my teeth--I keep getting decay and I have had filling after filling.  This past week, my dentist told me I may need a crown, which is pricey. I also have two missing teeth, which was a genetic thing that runs in my family. I am sick of hygienists telling me I am not doing enough brushing, flossing rinsing.  I do all three religiously (can't even imagine how bad my mouth would be if I didn't...)  Thankfully, last time I had my teeth cleaned, the hygienist said that my mouth was the cleanest one she had seen in years. And, she said, "something happened to your teeth developmentally." I explained how I had undiagnosed celiac disease many years. I am only 31... It is really disheartening.   What do you guys do to afford all this dental care?  My insurance doesn't cover a whole lot.  Thankfully, my dentist has felt bad and gives me discounts here and there.
    • I have been recently diagnosed with celiac. It causes terrible attacks that start with ear ringing (?) Anyway, I too, cannot eat Budding's lunch meat. I have discovered that it causes a gluten reaction. I did not realize it until the third time eating it as I am vegetarian. But as I literally can eat almost nothing now, I was craving "real food". I ate this lunch meat thinking it was safe and voila! Celiac attack. Swollen, painful ankle, ringing ears, itching mouth, nausea, anxiety, going to the bathroom way too much, etc...I also cannot toletare corn starch so, that might be it? So, I agree, I definitely cannot eat that nor can I tolerate 20 ppm. I empathize with all of you. Looks like potatoes and tea, at least till I learn to cook.  :-p
