Meals That Can Be Eaten Cold?

9 posts in this topic

So I have a school trip coming up, and it's a day long trip. We are supposed to have lunch to the small town we are going BUT with my several food sensitivies and overall weak stomach, I really have to bring my lunch BUT I don't really know what I am going to take...

I asked my teacher to check with the restaurant to see if there was a microwave (then I could heat up my food on a container and eat with my own cutlery), but the trip is after tomorrow and no answer yet.

The meal has to be grain-free and not processed, and I would appreciate suggestions on meals that don't need to be heated. I'm not talking about raw, just... Dishes that can be eaten cold without problems.

Or am I asking too much?

I don't have a microwave to take with me, btw.

I am personally a huge salad fan. I like chicken or eggs on my salad for traveling for that protein boost but really whatever floats your salad boat.

Oh yeah, fried/baked apples are super tasty cold. Can also do turkey if you're tired of chicken.

I'm taking raw apples already as a snack, but I definitely liked the carrot chips and roasted chicken idea. It has been a while since I had roasted chicken.

I like sweet potato cold. I just do it in the microwave, let it cool then peel it and put in in fork sized chunks. Goes great with chicken too.

Have a good trip

Tuna (plain, no mayo) and cheese sticks are also good. You can sometimes find tuna in individual serving cups that peel open. Individual cups of peanut butter or Jif's version of Nutella with some gluten-free crackers or pretzels are also a treat. Roll up lunchmeat and cheese together for a breadless sandwich, or use gluten-free bread or corn tortillas.

    • Most of the articles you presented were blogs.  They focused in one article pushed by the American Chemical Society.  The research looked at ground coffee in Brazil ONLY.   https://www.acs.org/content/acs/en/pressroom/newsreleases/2014/august/keeping-filler-ingredients-out-of-your-cup-of-coffee.html We know that Brazil is a very poor country.  Just look at what happened during the last Olympics.   For piece of mind, do not drink ground coffee brands from Brazil.  Instead, grind your own beans or purchase grounds from a reputable company.    
    • Okay, a positive on thyroid antibodies,  but what about the rest of the thyroid panel?  That tells more of the story.   Is  rest of the thyroid panel all in the normal ranges?  Is that why you were recommended to take a supplement instead of actual thyroid hormone replacement?  Many doctors try a tiny dose of thyroid hormone replacement.  Was this considered?   Symptoms besides gray hair?   You can either embrace the gray hair or color it.  My research and personal experience has never come across a method of reversing grey hair.  My SIL grayed  at 18.  She has been coloring her hair black for decades and her thyroid is normal. 
    • Be sure to read "cyclinglady" post and link to an article from the University of Chicago Celiac Center....vitamin deficiency's prior to diagnoses....so helpful. 
    • Hi All - I was recently diagnosed with Hashimotos. My doctor said TPO AB 76 is above range. I initially went to the doctor because since graduating college 3 years ago I have gotten a significant number of gray hairs (25% of my hair I would say) and I just turned 25 and am an African American woman. She put me on OMP Thyrotain. Has anyone used this? She has also advised me to go gluten free. Has anyone seen any reversal in the grey hair? I don't consider myself a shallow person but at such a young age, without any family history of this, it's really impacting me negatively. Any advice or experiences would be so helpful.
    • You shave stumbled onto the biggest secret out there..........the gluten-free diet isn't as horrible as many would have you believe, including the medical profession. There is plenty of good food to eat and the biggest drawback is we have to prepare it ourselves the vast majority of times.  That's the worst part.    And like yourself, I have friends who have much more serious health issues and they do not have the control over theirs as we do over ours. There may be times when you will be faced with temptations you will have to turn away from but you will move on and survive.  Congratulations on having such a positive attitude!
