I’ve spent a lot of time doing road trips across the country for work and quicker trips for business, etc. Sometimes no matter how much I want to, I can’t research enough ahead of time to eat local. When that happens, I rely on one of these chains to get me through. This is by all means not an exhaustive list, just my favorite quick stops that I know will almost always be safe.
Long flights abroad can be a huge pain. The lack of leg room is enough to make anyone go nuts, but tack on the lack of gluten free meal options on most flights and you’re looking at a rough 10+ hours. For these flights it’s important to plan ahead and know what you’re getting in to. Here are a few steps you can take to make your long flights doable with gluten free dietary restrictions.
Hiking is one of my favorite pastimes from childhood. Growing up in Colorado and not being a skier or snowboarder is basically unheard of, but I made up for it in the summer months. It certainly helps that my school insanely thought it’d be a brilliant idea to force 20+ middle school children to backpack into the wilderness for 3 days, go rock climbing in Moab, and white water rafting on some river I’d rather forget about given how terrified I was. But in all seriousness, I love the outdoors. Growing up in a place with such natural beauty has had a huge impact on my life. My first attempt at hiking without all my favorite snacks (read puppy chow, cheap trail mix, and Clif Bars) was an epic fail. I was starving by the end of it and really didn’t enjoy myself because I was so hungry. I finally found some great fillers for the usual snacks I used to love (they’re even a little healthier!). Here are my 4 favorite things to bring hiking to curb hunger!
