On Saturday afternoon, we picked Jeff up at the baseball field and headed north to Lake Pleasant. Some friends were camping with their boat, so we tagged along. It was our first time camping as a family, and the first time we had a chance to use our new tent. We had a blast on the water! Both kids went tubing, we all went swimming in the
cold refreshing lake, and then we slept under the stars.
I knew I would have to do some planning when it came to what I would eat on our short trip. Our friends had a trailer and had planned meals for everyone, so Jeff and the kids were good to go. I wasn’t going to risk cross-contamination, and I knew it would be easier for everyone, including me, if I packed my own meals.
Here’s what I packed for me (I didn’t eat all of this, but I like to have lots of options to choose from):
-Snacks: Gluten Free Bars, Mrs. Mays Trio bars, Bhuja snack mix, Mary’s Gone Crackers, Glutino pretzels
-Spicy Lentil Hummus and veggies (carrots, cucumber, grape tomatoes)
-Barbecued chicken and living lettuce for lettuce wraps (yum and so easy to make ahead of time)
-Apples and individual peanut butter packs
-Strawberries, blackberries, and peaches
–Enjoy Life snickerdoodle cookies (for dessert)
With minimal prep work the day before we left, I had a cooler stocked with delicious gluten-free food options for the weekend.
How do you plan ahead for gluten-free travel?
