Traveling To Northern Georgia

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

My family and I will be taking a cross country road trip this summer from Kansas to a small town in Northern Georgia, near Young Harris. I am taking my kids to see their great grandmother, my grandmother. She was diagnosed with lung cancer this past year, had a lobe removed, but due to her age will not undergo chemo or radiation.

I looked into the area with the gluten free registry, but there are no bakeries, restaurants, or grocery stores listed within a 200 mile radius. I plan on bringing my own cookware, flours and supplies, but I cannot pack enough food and supplies for four people to eat gluten free for a week, nor will I always have access to a kitchen. Added to that the kitchen I will be able to use is a non gluten free environment.

I plan to have sandwich supplies for the drive down, as well as fruit, probably baby carrots, cereal and milk for breakfast. The main problem is the time we will spend there. I would appreciate any ideas, or any information on the area that any one has. We have lived with this disease quite well four four years now, but this is our first long trip. And this may be our last chance to see her. Thanks again.

Hi, Mom~

How about going online and pre-ordering a bunch of food from one of the stores like glutenfreemall.com and have it delivered to the Georgia address?

I hadn't even thought about that! Believe it or not, I survive without ever visiting a health food store, so I usually don't think of them. :D

Welcome,

I'm from the Atlanta area. If you get close to the city there are many places you can shop. I use the regular grocery store for most of my food. There is Whole Foods, Trader Joe's, Return to Eden. That one is just off I85. So there are many places to get food.

I wont lie..whenever I travel I always have food sent ahead. If I am visiting someones house I have it delivered there, if someone is going a head of me I send stuff with them as well as pack a few things to travel.

I love the "travel" sized peanut butter single servings they don't take up much room and don't go bad. But your right fruit, veggies, bars and the like are a staple.

Good luck and enjoy the time with your family.

Thank you for the suggestions. I made my first "trip" to the gluten free mall. I just have to say, yikes! I didn't realize how expensive the pre-made foods are. I make everything at home from flours I buy at a local Korean market. But now that I have been there, I may have to order some chicken nuggets and maybe some breakfast items for the trip. I still haven't found a recipe for a really good glazed doughnut. But since my little girls are 3 and 6, having a few cheat items, stuff that goes straight into the oven or microwave, would be nice.

There really aren't any options near Young Harris so the suggestions of packing everything is your best bet. There is an Ingles Market in Blairsville. They carry a lot of gluten free items. It varies by location so I'm not sure what they have but you can usually find Glutino crackers, Pamela's cookies, etc.

You can find their gluten-free lists here: http://www.ingles-markets.com/ask_leah/glutenfree/
