How to Eat Gluten Free Even When Travelling

When planning a trip, packing is one of the biggest concerns for many. However, if you are gluten free, it may not be the clothes you are so worried about. In fact, you may be more concerned about how to stick to your eating habits away from home. The good news is that it is easier than ever to have a stress-free vacation and remain gluten free. Some tips that will help you do that are highlighted here.

Create a Snack Pack
Having a gluten free snack pack on hand is a good idea, even if you are just going to the grocery store. You can pack baggies with a number of non-perishable items such as energy bars, crackers, nuts, dried fruit, seeds, nut butter, gluten free cereal and tea bags. When you are the road or get to the airport you can supplement these items with water, yogurt, hummus, cheese, veggies and fruit. Not only will this help you have something to snack on when the urge strikes, it will also minimize the chances of you getting something with gluten in it if you are on the go.

Use Social Media
Are you planning to travel to a new state or even a new country? If so, it may be difficult to determine which restaurants are gluten free. Also, using your dinner gluten free recipes may not be an option if you are staying in a hotel. This is one of those times that social media can be invaluable. Use social media to ask others for suggestions of gluten free eating spots for your destination. There is a good chance you will receive more than a few responses and you can do a bit more research prior to leaving to ensure these are good options. This can result in great options and reduce the stress of “where to eat” each night.

Do Some Research Ahead of Time
Not every town may be “enlightened” as the one you live in. This means that you need to do a bit of research prior to heading out to find out about any eating options available in the area that cater to allergy-sensitive or gluten free eating habits. This will pay off in the long run and minimize the chance you will have to sit around wondering where to go to grab a bite to eat while you are on vacation.


Taking the time to plan ahead will definitely pay off when it comes to traveling while sticking to a gluten free diet.

Review: Yoplait Greek 100 Whips! Coconut Macaroon Greek Yogurt Mousse


I'm not going to lie, it's been almost two weeks since I've physically typed out a review and quite frankly, I haven't missed it much.  Not sure that bodes well for the future of the blog, but I will be popping in periodically to submit review of new products that I find in the store.  Today's review adds to the exponentially large Yoplait review catalog as I'll take a look at this Yoplait Greek 100 Whips! Coconut Macaroon Greek Yogurt Mousse that I was able to pick up at Kroger for $1.00.  Each container is a fluffy and light 4.0 ounces and is packed in with 100 calories and nine grams of protein.  It's also gluten free.

Review: Curate Salted Decadence Dark Chocolate & Almonds Bar


Curate bars have successfully infiltrated my Kroger in all shapes and sizes.  Okay, so maybe they are all the same shape and size, but they at least have different flavor varieties and I've taken a look at some of those already.  In standard operating procedure for me and this blog, today's review is another example of me plowing through all the flavor varieties of a particular manufacturer as I take a look at this Curate Salted Decadence Dark Chocolate & Almonds Bar that I was able to pick up at the aforementioned Kroger for $1.79.  Each bar clocks in at 1.59 ounces and has 200 calories with seven grams of protein.  It's also gluten free and crafted with joy, so if either of those things are of interest to you, then maybe that sparked a little interest in this review for you.

Review: LUNA Protein Berry Greek Yogurt Bar


LUNA was a big start of review in the early days of the blog and over time, I've cranked out seventeen past reviews (as of this writing).  Primarily designed for women, I've decreed that it's okay for men to eat them too, thus I happily eat them. A recent trip to Kroger allowed me to discover one of their new (to me) flavors and I snatched up this LUNA Protein Berry Greek Yogurt Bar for $1.25.  The bar itself clocks in at 1.59 ounces and 170 calories with twelve grams of protein. It's gluten free for those that are so inclined as well.

Review: Gatorade G Series Prime Honey Oat Fuel Bar


I frequently see Gatorade's foray into nutrition bars sitting on the shelves of my store.  I've had varying success with them in past reviews, but it seems like the flavors never change.  Upon a recent browsing of Kroger, I happened to notice a flavor of bar that I hadn't seen before, so that led me to snatch up this Gatorade G Series Prime Honey Oat Fuel Bar for today's review.  This bar clocks in at 2.1 ounces and packs in 220 calories and five grams of protein.  Unlike a lot of their previous products that I've reviewed, this bar is neither huge in size nor is it a huge calorie bomb.  Basically, this abandons everything I've come to expect from Gatorade bars as this one is certainly more modest.

Review: Chobani flip Coffee Break Bliss Greek Yogurt


Sometimes when you buy too much of a particular manufacturer's products, you end up with situations like the one I had today where I'm writing a review of a Chobani product on the day that a previous Chobani review gets posted to the blog.  That's happened countless times, but it never ceases to amuse me for some reason.  Digression aside, today's review allows me to hit up this 5.3 ounce cup of Chobani flip Coffee Break Bliss Greek Yogurt that I was able to pick up at Kroger for $1.29.  With in the split section cup are 190 calories and twelve grams of protein.  It's also kosher and vegetarian, if you are interested.

Review: Curate Indulgent Dark Chocolate & Hazelnuts Bar


Another day in the books for me, which means its time for me to curate another review.  Like that brilliant introduction/segue into this review?  Yeah, it's incredibly lame.  Anyway, I was able to pick up another one of these Curate bars at Kroger for about $1.79 and since it really is another day, that means it is time for another review.  This time it's the Curate Indulgent Dark Chocolate & Hazelnuts Bar.  This bar clocks in at 1.59 ounces and packs 200 calories and six grams of protein into that package.  It's also gluten free if that is your thing and you are interested.
