I have to go out of town to Nauvoo, IL for a funeral and I will be gone for 2 days. There are only a few restaurants in town, and no chains that I know of. What should I bring that I can keep and eat in a hotel room?

I'm going to Disneyland on Sunday and this is what I plan to take to keep in the room:

Trail mix (homemade) that contains dried cranberries, nuts (mixture of salted and unsalted), gluten-free/casein-free chocolate chips, coconut

Lara Bars

Bumble Bars

Peanut Butter

Possibly some tuna

When I travel I bring almonds, apples, bananas, peanut butter (it helps if you can bring a cooler), trail mix, rice cakes or corn thins, Clif Nectar bars, Alpsnak bars, Organic Food Bars and my own little packs of Annies salad dressings.

BYO bread, nut butter, Progresso Chicken Wild Rice Soup. Is there a natural grocery store in town?

I don't believe so. Google Nauvoo, IL and you'll see what I'm up against. The funeral isn't even in Nauvoo, but Nauvoo is the closest place that actually has hotels. Very rural area.

Well, I 'pose taking Vegetables and Fruit in a container would never hurt. :lol: But, too healthy and boring, right? Try making a loaf of homemade gluten-free bread gives a lot of options (In my eyes, Bob's Red Mill is the best gluten-free flour to make bread with). Numerous sandwiches are available now. Also, when taking gluten-free bread, I've found keeping it fridge or small lunch box with ice packs helps keep it fresh a lot longer. I also like pepperonis with cheese on them too. I know it's not much, but, I hope it helps. –Ash
