Gluten free backing food

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

I currently do search and rescue with the Civil Air Patrol.  I've got one problem; what to eat.  Obviously, I need my food to be gluten free.  I also need low sodium (it takes all of about 500mg a day to give me diaheria.)  Then I need to be able to cook it quickly (an MRE would be ideal, but there are no gluten-free MREs.)  Finally, I need to be able to store it in my pack for several years (if I get a call at 3AM, I am highly likely to leave anything not in my pack behind.  No running to the kitchen to grab food out of the freezer)

 

Anyone have any ideas on what I can eat?

 

Thanks.

I just went back & checked the ingredients in those gluten-free MRE's. It says modified food starch & doesn't specify from what so if I were you I would certainly check with the company & have them clarify that to your satisfaction.

We are prepared for earthquakes at home, in our car and at work.  That means keeping tins of sardines, gluten-free cereal bars,  SPAM, nuts, chicken, fish, rice, etc. in our earthquake kits.  I have to go through it every three to four months to rotate out some of the foods (e.g. cereal bars).  I mark it in our planner.  It works for us.  Tasty?  Appetizing?  I bet my kid will be thankful to have food to eat in the event of an emergency.  <_<

Not exactly MREs, nor anything that can be left for years, but when I'm going to be travelling for a while and need to pack light, I use gluten-free GO Picnics (I take them out of the boxes and put them into ziplocs) or make my own versions, mainly using items from minimus.com:  Some jerky, pepperoni, cheese/crackers, hummus and gluten-free pretzels, etc.  If I know I'll be somewhere where I can boil water, I might pack some rice and gluten-free soy sauce packets. These options are not low sodium, but it can give you ideas of what will work for you.
