I am interested in any restaurants absolutely safe for grain free celiac around the route. I might consider visiting one on my way home, maybe. Other than that my family would be interested in organic food restaurants.

I am needing organic nutrition stores in or around Pensacola. I want to be able to buy meats, eggs, and organic vegetables. If you know of organic produce direct from nearby farms ... I would be really glad. My family and I (Seven of us) are traveling. I find it difficult to imagine that I can fit all of the food for a week into our loaded van.

We found a hotel with full kitchen, but I need to pack all of the pans I want.

I have an app for whole foods on my iphone that we've used as we travel. We go to Florida a lot, but never Pensacola. Anyhow, probably like your travel, we now make sure we have a kitchen and know where all the WF's and Outbacks are. I know that's not organic, but my daughter and I can get a steak and potato and they seem pretty aware of gluten free diets.
The thing I love about Florida is it's so easy to get fresh seafood and a salad. Honestly, that's one of the easiest states I've been too. Not that there is necessarily a huge awareness of celiac, but easy to get seafood.

In MN I shop at the co ops and get organic as much as possible, but when we travel I sort of just do the best I can. It doesn't always work as I am now dealing with muscle and joint pain from TG travel, but most trips we (daughter and I) come back in one piece. Good luck on the trip.

Thanks. I figure I might try a restaurant on the way home. I didn't know Outback was a possibility. I am glad for hotels with kitchens. Other than that I have an electric skillet and crock.

Diana,
I also have to say that I ate at PF Changs yesterday with a lot of trepidation (don't know why...just not as plain as Outback I guess) Anyhow, I had zero problems yesterday or today. I will say that I am not sure about eating grain free there. Plus $$$ for 7 people. But maybe dishes can be split? But I would say if you can cook for yourself and feed yourself on the road, that's what I'd do.

I am planning a Montana to Pensacola trip in Feb. I am wondering the same things. We (5 of us) are all gluten free and my 17 year old daughter is very sensitive to cc-ing. I plan to try to get glutinfreeda burritos and pizza rolls to take the place of eating fast food and bag or box salad with gluten-free dressings, cheese and sliced turkey or ham. I think we will travel with cereal and milk (we are not lactose intolerant) mary's gone crackers and cream cheese. Apples and peanut butter. I don't know what else. I am really afraid of restaurants.
