    Do you have questions about celiac disease or the gluten-free diet?

My uncle passed away suddenly and I am going to have to travel tonight to S.C.

We are driving all night. My question is what do I take with me? The next few days

my diet is going to be turned upside down. I called my DR. and he told me to

make sure and take Imodium with me and to eat carefully. Any advice???

I never travel without some microwave cans of Progresso Chicken Wild Rice soup, you can even find them at drug stores. Pack a cooler with your bread, nut butter, protein bars, whatever else you'd eat at home. We were traveling recently and I ran to the supermarket, bought a rotiserie chicken and small thing of mayo, threw in some dried cranberries and viola - chicken salad.

Take care!

You can take trail mix, almonds, Clif Nectar Bars, Organic Food bars, Alpsnack bars, fruit, veggies, Corn Thins or rice cakes with peanut butter, corn chips, a bag of Tinkyada and a jar of sauce (if you'll have access to a kitchen). I'll often bring a big cooler and put as much stuff in it as possible. Carry food around with you so you're never in a situation where you'll eat something potentially unsafe because you're hungry.

Everyone else had good suggestions for your food. I'm sorry for your loss--have a safe trip. :)

Thank you for your kind words. It means so much at this time.

Thank you for the advice on the foods to take. I haven't had to travel since my dx

and appreciate all the advice.

I'm so sorry for the loss of your uncle. This is a trying time, with out having to worry about to eat.

My suggestions are:

take a cooler, yogurt, cheese, corn tortillas, lunch meat-you can make a quick roll up sandwich that way

Lara bars

Nut thins

if you have time make a pan of brownies


That's all I can think of, everyone else had excellent suggestions. I'm just so sorry. I hope you journey is safe.
