In Topic: Gluten Free Survival Pack - 1Mnth On The Run

If this is a Peace Corps or that type thing (MSF?) there may be some way of Divisional HQ getting in periodic supplies. Maybe you could arrange with them? Also, perhaps you will be in a country that really doesn't cook with gluten ingredients indigenously so entirely gluten-free?

In Topic: In Search Of Grain Free Chips For Corn Chips

I love cheese chips - learned this from the South Beach Diet years ago.

I use sharp cheddar, sometimes adding in some parmesan.


Sprinkle the shreds in 2 - 3 inch circles on parchment paper and put it in the microwave - you'll have to experiment with time, but I usually go 40 - 70 seconds on high.

I usually pat down with a paper towel after, as they can be greasy and let cool a bit to harden more.

Nikki...is this what you had?

Anytime anyone would come to visit I'd ask them to bring me these and some Iceland in cheese. Sigh...I'm hungry.

Field trip anyone?

YES!  That's it.  Thanks so much - Now, if I can only find a gluten-free version.

Thanks - that flatkokur may be it!  I look forward to hearing if there's a gluten-free version.


And as for a car, I recommend an SUV even if you're staying on the road.  We rented a little Opel and it was a bit frightening up on the windy mountain twists and turns.  We suddenly understood why everyone in Reykjavik seemed to be driving SUVs.


Wow - I love this thread.  Definitely makes me want to book that next trip!

Great info - we were there a few years ago, pre-diagnosis, and really want to go back so I will definitely try your suggestions.  


Icelandgirl - one of the things I mourned when I got my diagnosis was this wonderful sort of flatbread that wasn't crispy but was fairly thin.  I remember we bought it just at a corner small grocery near the center of Reykjavic.  Any chance you know of a gluten-free version of that bread.  It was wonderful!  Or at least what it was called, so my kids can try it?


Amazing, amazing country.
