Hi there, I am about to do a few months of travel for my work (Stockholm, Leipzig) and am looking into meal replacement (shakes etc.) as an option for my time away. My kind of work involves a lot of eating out etc. and I haven't really got to the point where I am comfortable eating out lots (dx 18 months ago). I mostly cook my own meals at home so I'm used to being in control of the cross contamination etc. While working away cooking for myself won't be very practical. I plan to cook some of my own meals and find a couple of gluten-free restaurants but am wondering if there is any gluten-free meal replacement options out there or something similar. I have been looking into meal replacement such as soylent etc. and wondering if anybody has tried, or knows of, any gluten-free alternatives? I do not mind eating plain and simple as long as it is gluten free and I'm getting all required nutrients etc. Is it even a good idea to be doing meal replacement as a celiac? Thanks in advance.
Can anyone recommend a total meal replacement option? Preferably a powder or something that only requires water, yet still offers full nutrition for heavy activity. Or a good resource to making my own? Must be light, compact, and not spoil in dry heat. I know that clearly this isn't the best way to go health wise, but I'm coming up on a month of work where I will be away from stores and need to find a way to eat without relying on anyone. I need to travel relatively light, and won't have prep time, cooking access, or refrigerated storage. Initially I was planning on using Soylent, but since I first checked out their product, they have announced - cross contamination. Any leads or suggestions? Or anyone else have experience with giving up on solids for an extended period of time? I'll be physically active, and moving heavy objects. Hopefully one of us has experience, or even a zombie apocalypse scenario saved somewhere
So it seems no matter what gluten-free brands I try I still get that awful bloated want to die feeling from coffee, trail mix and protein shakes/meal replacements. Anyone having the same issues? I get really busy at work and need to find snacks and some sort of drinkable meal to get me through without a reaction. I've tried the gluten-free slim fast, ensure, designer whey, special k....all the same effect. It also happens with my coffee even though my creamer is gluten free. Trail mix is a weird one for me because I can eat dried fruits fine, so maybe the plant the nuts are processed in? I'm really beginning to despise eating...it's just a never ending battle just to feel normal! help please
