After eating gluten and dairy free for 9 months, I made my first long car trip. I used to love road trips: pizza, Chinese food, and fast food all day!
But this year I packed my rice cooker, toaster, and a cooler with ham, frozen chicken, ketchup, bacon, eggs, soy sauce, and then a bag of the life-saving Mi-Del cookies and Glutino crackers and nutrition bars to fill in the cracks!
It was a pain, of course, finding kitchenette motels where I could cook suppers and breakfasts, but I was healthy all week. I stopped at Wendy's every lunch for plain patties and a baked potato, or a plain chicken patty for a change. (Not every fast food place understands the order: "2 patties, no bun, no cheese," but most did.
I got tired of washing dishes in motels every night and morning, but it was better than being sick.
I did 7 days and used up my traveling food and restocked it every couple of days. The food gets boring, but it's boring at home as well. (Rice and ham. Rice and chicken. Rice and hamburger.)
Since I last posted, I did have another endoscopy to check my villi, and they are still atrophied, but overall I was cancer free in my stomach, colon, and duodenum, so that was all good news.
Here's to a good week of coping for everyone!
