#643441 Amtrak

Posted by melrobsings on 01 October 2010 - 01:22 PM

I am newly diagnosed with Celiac and I am traveling on Amtrak next month - we will be on the train for 45 hours (assuming no delays) and I am so scared about what I can eat. You can not bring anything that needs to be in a microwave and I don't want to eat Pamela's cookies and side salads for 45 hours. Amtrak Guest Relations is not open until Tuesday, but I was wondering if there is anything safe at all - we paid $2,000 for a bedroom that includes meals, and I am so scared that I will be starving. I have a lactose intolerance that can be helped with enzymes, but prefere to stay away from that to. The reaction to dairy is not as bad as gluten. Any help is appreciated!!


This is going to sound like the dumbest idea ever however it has SAVED me MANY times. Grab a big thing of corn tortillas and a few can of beans and some fresh vegies that don't need a fridge like tomatoes, peppers and make your mexican food. I too travel for a living and never know and I'm honestly happy and surprised by how much of a well rounded meal you can make that's healthy....just start with a can of beans (don't forget your opener....did that once and oh boy did that suck...) and corn tortillas.

#643440 gluten-free Destination Wedding

Posted by melrobsings on 01 October 2010 - 01:19 PM

Hello fellow gluten-free-ers!

My boyfriend and I have been talking about a destination wedding and we have settled on Thailand, India or Sri Lanka. I know a lot about all the cuisines but I was wondering if, by chance, anyone else has planned or been to a wedding in those countries or knows of any place in those countries that offer gluten-free-ness. We'd like a resort but are open to anything. We don't care if it's by the beach or not....

Thanks much!
