I am going to a wedding in Scotland this weekend. I will be fine for the wedding dinner as the hotel knows about my celiac status. However, I will arrive very late on the Friday evening and will need to eat before bed. I may also need to eat on the Saturday evening after the wedding. The Sunday I will spend shopping in Edinburgh. I have already bookmarked the safe restaurants there so that is fine.

I have no mini fridge in my room as the hotel could not source one. They said I could store my food in their fridge if I wanted. I am not too comfortable with that however. The chef said he will cook the gluten-free sausages I need for my breakfast and I will bring them with me.

So for my evening meals/snacks I am bringing:

String cheese- will this be okay if not refrigerated? It will not be hot in Edinburgh.

Popcorn

Dark 85% chocolate

Butter

Rice Bread

Apples

Can anyone else think of anything else I should bring?

Thanks!

I've been stocking up shelf stable things for kiddo and I for an upcoming road trip, to supplement what we get out and for meals enroute(in the car). Here's my collection, many of which were ordered in travel sizes from minimus.biz.

http://www.minimus.biz/SearchResult.aspx?CategoryID=55

tuna in mini cans

"canned" chicken in pouches

mayo

lemon juice

salad dressing

mustard

BBQ sauce

parmesan cheese

apple crisps(freeze dried fruit pouches)

mixed nuts

salami

gluten-free crackers

various gluten-free individually wrapped snacks

In the past I have taken Tastybite meals as an emergency meal-they come with containers in the package that you can just dump the contents of the package into and microwave.

When I'm traveling to a place with no microwave or fridge, I bring my own microwave. It always feels like I'm smuggling contraband into the hotel as I carry it up to my room, though! I also bring a small cooler that I can refill with ice everyday from the hotel ice machine. It works just as well as a fridge. Good luck! You could also bring hot food for Friday night per-heated in a thermos.

Thought, I'd hang my request unto this post, cause it's related to Scotland. I'm also going to be in Edinburgh at the end of October this year. I was wondering, where and what I can eat? Since I'm flying in from the US, there's no cooler or microwave I can take with me on the plane. Every suggestion is greatly appreciated. Keep in mind, other than my still small Martial Arts Academy I don't have a job (I'm starting as a school bus driver in September and am not able to save much money until the end of October), so I have limited budget.

Thank you to all the ideas.

Mini food for traveling - love it!!

I would add mixed nuts, small peanut butter, chips, gluten-free pretzels, easy fruit like bananas, apples, oranges.

Do you have a lunch bag, something insulated or even a purse that can be squished into a fridge? If so I'd say use it and put that into the hotels fridge. This way you can keep your things cold but people wouldn't be touching your actual food items. You could put a post-it on that has your name and 'handle with care - gluten free items inside'.
