Okay, we're going on vacation to our relatives house for 4 days...it's not the cleanest house (not dirty either), but has lots of crumbs...what do you bring when you're going for an extended stay to eat? I thought of cereal...but what else?

I'm cheap and I'd rather bring everything I need than have to buy it there.

I eat a lot of fruit and eggs. I either bring my own pan or stick to one of their pans (that is safe for me to use) and am the only one to use it for my stay.

I have read that Teflon pans are unsafe. Why? If you clean them in super hot water and soap, wouldn't that remove gluten?

The problem is that Teflon pans get scratches and gluten can get stuck in the scratches and be hard to remove. I don't know what the amount is that can be left as residue in these scratches but for myself just don't use them anymore. I did, however, use a cast iron pan at my uncle's house and got really sick off of that (they use soy sauce a lot).

I think it's better to be safe than to be sorry...

I bring my own pot, spoon and colander when I travel. Bring along a bag of Tinkyada pasta. Teflon also releases toxic poisons. Isn't there a lawsuit against DuPont now?

I make food ahead of time and freeze it in those ziplock throw away containers. I too bring my own pot, fry pan, and utensils. My daughter is ultra sensitive and therefore all must be gluten-free. I bake an assortment cookies and muffins and bring potato chips and chocolate bars. Not the healthiest but we eat healthy at home.

When I am away for a few days I bring lots of genisoy bars, yogurt, Amy's frozen entrees, rice cakes and peanut butter and some bagged salad. Also, I'll bring a homemade pasta casserole that everybody might enjoy. Good luck.
