Going To An Overnight Conference

Recommended Posts

Hi there. On September 29th and 30th I am going to a conference in another city and am really worried about meals. We are all going on a bus. Friday night we have to bring along a bagged supper to eat on the bus. (Yikes!) I am not too worried about breakfast Saturday morning since we have a small fridge in our hotel and I will just have a bowl of cereal and almond milk. I will have to bring along Saturday's lunch since we will not be going back to hotel between lectures which are in a different location (no fridge, no microwave). Everyone else will be purchasing lunches from vendors. Then on our way back Saturday night we will be stopping somewhere for supper (groan!!). Can anyone please provide me with some recipes for stuff I can eat on the bus and Saturday lunch which does not need toasting (that eliminates most gluten free bread, bagels etc) or microwaving (which is what I usually do for lunch) or refrigeration. I am gluten intolerant, casein intolerant, sensitive to onions, peppers, and eggs. I have been on this diet for about 12 weeks and am definitely still in the healing stage. I would really appreciate any help I can get here so I am not eating Lara bars and carrot sticks all weekend. Thanks!!

Marlene

Apples, oranges, and bananas would all be good. You can also buy serving sized fruits/applesauce/and that are prepackaged. The last time I checked the original OBERTO jerky, it didn't have any gluten containing ingredients, and that would give you some protein (check you package, just in case, though). You could also do Peanut Butter and celery (though the celery keeps best refrigerated). You could mix peanut butter and honey (together in one jar) and then take rice cakes or crackers and make "cracker sandwiches". Regular potato chips ought to be okay (most of the flavored ones have casien). It might be a boring food weekend, but at least you'll be safe! And perhaps you can convince them to stop at a restaurant that just "happens" to have a gluten-free menu on the way home (outback steakhouse, Chili's, and PF Changs are three of the more commonly found ones). Good luck!

Rice cakes or crackers and corn tortilla's make great bread substitutes. I survived on corn tortilla's when I worked out of town. Since you can't have cheese, you could put peanut butter, hummus, avacado, veggies, and/or meats on the tortilla's. You could bring a lunch bag with one of those ice packs. Put the whole thing in you hotel fridge overnight and it should keep your lunch cool for the next day. You could also make a pasta salad before you leave and keep it in a small cooler and you would have supper for the next day.
