Am I Unreasonable?do you go to restaurants?

At home we got all of the gluten out of the areas I use in the kitchen. My family no longer makes gluten containing foods in my house. My family tried to find eating places that could cook for me. Jason's Deli has gluten free, but when I was there once, they actually told me they couldn't guarantee it was gluten free! I have seen places with "gluten free noodles or chips." I can't eat those either since I am not tolerating grain.
I saw a post on the Five Guys burgers and was so impressed, I was ready to go. Five Guys Burgers was also mentioned by my chiropractor, who is gluten intolerant, and had a safe experience there. Then someone on the forum reacted to going to Five Guys burgers and I didn't want to try going there either. Basically, I am refusing to go to any restaurant.
I am 6 months into grain free. I have feelings like I am just beginning to really heal. I am on a rotational diet besides. I was 30 years with symptoms. I have been feeling good. I am going to be away from home and needing energy.
Does anyone blame me for being so careful?

Sometimes I put a few carrots or grapes in little baggies and label them with a big K. Then I have my safe carrot sticks and they can gluten up the bigger bag. This might work best with so many people.
You could get a little camp stove. Mine is big enough to make 4-6 burgers at once or many hot dogs. You could grill out lunches or at the hotel along the way.

If it doesn't bother you to either watch the others eat at a restaurant or stay behind in the hotel or car, then do it. With that many people traveling, it might be nice to have a half hour of quiet! I know when I travel with 40 teens for Robotics, I enjoy staying back from dinner in my room and eating a snack dinner ( nuts, crackers, fruit, etc)

I just posted about this little food warmer. About $20 and I have seen them at Target in the last week or so. You might be able to get a car adapter and plug it in in the car to heat some soup or casserole for your trip. Freeze portions before you go so they will last a few days in a cooler.

Can't eat soy, corn, or foods high in salicylates.
Nightshades now seem to bother me too.
BUT I CAN STILL PLAY MY GUITAR AND THAT"S ALL THAT MATTERS!

I can see how during the healing and figuring out process it would be difficult to travel. You need to give your health the importance that it deserves. Others need to appreciate the importance of that. The next trip might be better for you.
