Ok...

I am a vegetarian with celiac and my family is planning a month vacation traveling across the country. Yes, I'm very excited, but am also wondering what in the world I will be able to eat. We will pack coolers with food for breakfast and lunch (we won't have cooking equiptment unless we stay at a hotel w/ a microwave) and go out to dinner. Have any of you ever traveled with lots of dietary restrictions, and if so what did you bring to eat?

Thank you! =)

I went on a camping trip at a summer camp (w/ cafeteria, etc) and basically lived on rice cakes and peanut butter. You can also get shelf stable milk or soy milk boxes (like juice boxes) at the health food store. I also ate a lot of fruit.

Hi. Try sticking to fruit, vegetables, and proteins such as beans, or seeds and nuts. Obviously shop-bought gluten-free snacks like cakes and pretzals are ok too. Chocolate and crisps are always an option if youre really stuck and really hungry :). Dairy food is also an option. Remember to avoid things like Quorn though, as this isnt gluten free - it may appear so from the packaging, but it is factory-contaminated.

Do you eat eggs? Hard boiled eggs are always a safe choice at restaurants if you need some protein. I'm dairy, soy and gluten-free and I hardly ever eat meat, but I travel quite a bit without problems. I do get hungry sometimes when I travel, but I figure being a little hungry at some point in the day is better than being sick!
