  1. Hi everyone! I just joined. I'm in the process of being diagnosed and after my last test I will be on the gluten-free diet/lifestyle. My question or my appeal for advice is that I will be traveling for business not even a month into my new lifestyle change and I'm afraid that going away on business will make what is already a hard task (finding things to eat that are safe/allowed) will be even harder. Does anyone have any suggestions for flying/traveling gluten free? I figured I can bring some snacks for the plane they are offering food service. I also notified the hosts of the conference and they are aware of my special dietary needs for the few meals they will be providing. What do people suggest? I just read that carrying a card with what I'm "allergic" to is helpful (different forum). I feel like when I ask people about food prep and other things they look at me like I've grown two heads even if they are like ... ah, yeah gluten free. Thanks in advance!
