Did I Handle This Okay?

Discussion with DH--

DH-you act like eating gluten is going to kill you

Me-your right I don't have celiacs, but why would I want to eat something that will make me feel bad

DH-you don't follow the diabetic diet

Me-yes, I struggle with that, but the effect of that is years away (kidney diease, eye sight, amputation) but if I eat gluten my bones hurt and I feel like I have a stomach virus in an hour

I've been out to eat a few times, always order a salad or just side of bacon if its breakfast. Only ordered the wonderful thick ranch once, lesson learned, now Italian only. Next week we are going out of town, staying at the inn on biltmore estate and I'm worried. They have a gluten free menu, but we also eat off the estate frequently for most meals due to the expense. Ideas for snacks needed (not the type of place that comes with frig or microwave)

peanut butter and rice cakes always go good for me.

You did well. Just stick to your guns.

Have you got a hot plate? If you do bring it and a small pan and some silverware with you to heat up gluten-free soups, Dinty Moore beef stew or other gluten-free prepared foods.

Cheese and Hormel pepperoni make a good snack. Fruit, nuts, chex cereals, peanut butter and some Udi bread.

The most important thing is to have a good time. Enjoy your trip.

I like to take these. I get them at Target or one of the local groceries. Read the box, there are a few that are not gluten-free.

You could take a cooler and re-fill with ice to keep some basic things like hard boiled eggs or cheese cool. Have you asked the hotel for a frdige? Many will provide one if you tell them its a medical need. They aren't supposed to ask what the medical need is but "food allergies" is a good reason.

I have had to do a few of these trips. One thing I do is grill some chicken, cut it up and freeze it. Then I bring some salad fxings and keep it all in a cooler for a chicken salad. We like to have cheese and crackers and fruit in our room for a meal.
