Meals That Can Be Eaten Cold?
0

9 posts in this topic

So I have a school trip coming up, and it's a day long trip. We are supposed to have lunch to the small town we are going BUT with my several food sensitivies and overall weak stomach, I really have to bring my lunch BUT I don't really know what I am going to take...

I asked my teacher to check with the restaurant to see if there was a microwave (then I could heat up my food on a container and eat with my own cutlery), but the trip is after tomorrow and no answer yet.

The meal has to be grain-free and not processed, and I would appreciate suggestions on meals that don't need to be heated. I'm not talking about raw, just... Dishes that can be eaten cold without problems.

Or am I asking too much?

I don't have a microwave to take with me, btw.

I am personally a huge salad fan. I like chicken or eggs on my salad for traveling for that protein boost but really whatever floats your salad boat.

Oh yeah, fried/baked apples are super tasty cold. Can also do turkey if you're tired of chicken.

I'm taking raw apples already as a snack, but I definitely liked the carrot chips and roasted chicken idea. It has been a while since I had roasted chicken.

I like sweet potato cold. I just do it in the microwave, let it cool then peel it and put in in fork sized chunks. Goes great with chicken too.

Have a good trip

Tuna (plain, no mayo) and cheese sticks are also good. You can sometimes find tuna in individual serving cups that peel open. Individual cups of peanut butter or Jif's version of Nutella with some gluten-free crackers or pretzels are also a treat. Roll up lunchmeat and cheese together for a breadless sandwich, or use gluten-free bread or corn tortillas.

    • Thanks.  This is very helpful.  Our first post diagnosis grocery store trip took several hours, just trying to read labels to make sure everything is safe.   Our son loves bread and this going to be the hardest part. 
    • i would agree with most of your assessment but overall the popular chefs are very aware. Ed Kenny at Town did have  gluten-free options on the menu.  Mavro's will fix something special given advance notice but its expensive.  excellent but very expensive.  Alan Wong is very aware and will have his staff prepare something as well.  We did find many options at both Oahu  whole foods -- mostly  with tofu. the only thing  there is to be aware of cross contamination with things  next to it.  they make a great gluten-free southwestern tofo dish which is great but not if its sitting next to anything with gluten. Its not whole foods but people use the smae  spoons and tongs i found more at   down to earth in peal city than by  University ave  
    • Hi,  I'm in KOna but my kaiser doctor just retired  who was pretty good about it. I dont know of a specialist here  but most of hte kaiser docs wil test you if thats when you need to talk to them about. good luck  
    • Yes.  And wouldn't it have been nice if your doctor had tested you for Celiac disease before you went gluten free? Then you would know if your issues are Celiac or not.  That would help you know how careful you need to be, what other illnesses and problems to look for, whether you might be passing a genetic disease on to your children, if you should look for another cause of your symptoms, etc  
    • I would be very careful in giving this kind of advice, she is in an advanced stage. I was there and one additional symptom that I was getting was a strong urge to commit suicide so eating gluten for three months might not be the way to go for some people. If a gluten free diet stop the problems them gluten is the problem or a least part of it. I eliminated MSG from my diet because I notice that the common denominator for some products that affected my well being was MSG. I eliminated oats because I notice that I would get canker sores every time I ate it. Wheat is what affect my brain the most, irritability gets uncontrollable, my mental capacity greatly diminish, rash in my arms appear, can't sleep,etc. Barley makes my stomach groan, and constipated. Will try testing how Rye affect me some later time.
