Here’s 10 Quick GlutenFree Travel Tips I Live By

1. Don’t be afraid to ask questions. I know it can seem like we’re being a pain in the arse to the waiter, but asking now is better than paying later.

2. Stay away from your average diner. Even though the waiter may try his best, there are many different types of food made on the same grill & crumbs (cross contamination) everywhere. So even your basic fruit bowl may not be safe.

3. Do a search ahead of time for restaurants in the area that have GF options

4. Pre-packing & carrying your own snacks is a must. Great for the airport, car rides, sightseeing, etc. This way you’re not forced to go hungry or eat something questionable because your tummy is growling.

5. Never assume something is GlutenFree, always always read labels & ask questions. Things like hash browns at breakfast, may contain wheat, so don’t necessarily take the waiters word w/out checking first.

6. Stick w/whole foods as much as possible. Be leery of sauces & salad dressings. When I’m traveling I usually will just use olive oil & lemon for my dressing.

7. I generally will start my day off w/a yogurt in the morn and/or ramp up on probiotics as a just in case so my intestines are a little more prepared.

8. If you are even slightly unsure of a food, don’t eat it. It’s better to be safe than sorry and not ruin your trip.

9. If you’re a beer drinker, think about packing a 6pack of your fave.

10. Stick w/Alcohol that you know are GF like: Chopan, Tito’s, or Ciroq vodka, 100% agave Tequila, & Rum – but stay away from premixed bottle stuff because the flavoring can have hidden wheat.

Enjoy your trip & stay GF Healthy
