Business Trip

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

I'm on my first business trip since being diagnosed. I brought all kinds of food with me, as I'm in a Hilton hotel and I have a fridge and microwave in my room. I brought yogurt, cheese, eggs, fruit, bread, peanut butter, Terra sweet potato chips, Popcorn Indiana popcorn, snow peas. Does anyone have tips for me? Ideas for what I can eat, aside the things I mentioned? I made some hard boiled eggs before I left home but the fridge in my room isn't great and I don't know how cold they've been overnight so I'm not sure I'll eat them. I don't know how cold eggs need to stay. I'm in a small town but there are supermarkets. I'm just limited because I don't have a stove or much cooking space.

Those cooked eggs are just fine!  If you want to insure that the frig is colder, add a bucket of ice.  Is used to travel without the benefit of a frig.  I just used a couple of ice buckets to chill milk, or whatever.  It worked.  If you want a hot meal, try Udi's frozen meals.   Not the best, but good for hotel cooking.  Several lunch meats are gluten free too at the market.

My mini fridges usually freeze my eggs!  Ugh!

You can buy hard boiled eggs in packages at some groceries.  

lunch meat, canned soups - Progresso has some labelled gluten-free,

microwave rice - either frozen or in the regular rice isle - add frozen veggies and chicken lunchmeat or canned beans and salsa

A few frozen dinners are gluten-free - amys , gluten free brands like Udis, EVOL, Lean cuisine, etc

Bush's baked beans

Read the ingredients and labels - they all aren't gluten-free.

I figure the eggs are ok because at the store they're not enclosed, rather in an open cooler. I also have raw eggs in there as well. Do you think those are ok? They felt cold but not as cold as if I was home. Same with the hard boiled eggs.

Also, can I buy the udi's and keep them in the fridge, or do they need to be frozen?

Microwave potatoes are filling. 6 minutes on 50% power then turn and another 6 minutes . For large sweet potatoes increase the to 8  each side. Canned gluten-free salmon, tuna etc with minute rice ready microwaveable. Libbys makes peas and green beans gluten-free naturals canned. Arrowhead Mills makes instant breakfast rice and shine as well as quinoa rice and shine, just add water and microwave. Instructions say stove top but 1/4 cup with 3/4 water microwave 4 minutes, with paper towel over top to catch water overflow. Eggs are great scrambled in microwave too. Stir up 2 eggs. Put in ceramic mug. Cover microwave 2 minutes.  Look for gluten free rice crackers too. Fresh fruit or gluten-free dried fruit. gluten-free nuts and seeds.  Survival tip, eggs need no refrigeration if you coat them with mineral oil when raw. Can last month's this way, Google it.
