This was my first week long vacation as a Gluten Free eater. I was kind of worried about the trip because A- I can't just eat anything and B - I'm pregnant and I eat A LOT. What it ultimately came down to was planning!
My friend (the mom of the other family) did a great job of meal planning. My plan was to get GF options that would go along with the meal everyone else was eating. Once we got to the house I dropped off the toddler and went to the local Food Lion (grocery story) to get what we would need.
Some of the essentials I brought or purchased included:
- Gluten Free Bisquick
- GF Sandwich meat
- GF yogurt
- GF cereal
- Brown rice pasta
- GF pasta sauce
- GF salad dressing
- GF Chips / snacks
- GF frozen pizza
- GF Mac-n-cheese
We stayed for 6 nights and only went out twice! One of those meals included Five Guys! SOOO good!
Junior Bacon Cheeseburger with lettuce and tomato - no bun! The amazing fries are fresh cut and Gluten Free!
The other night out included a trip to a pizza place. I baked my GF pizza before we left and took it with me. I was able to enjoy pizza with everyone else!
The week was a success as a Gluten Free eater! I felt like I was able to eat food like everyone else and didn't get hungry.
This gives me hope for future vacations.
