Traveling with Celiac is always a challenge. We're at my parents this week and though my mom is very mindful of how we need to eat, it's always hard to be away from my own kitchen. I brought a loaf of Ener-G bread, some cereal and Nutella, of course. But in my fervor to pack the Nutella, I forgot a couple things. We're in a small town but thankfully even small-ish stores carry some good replacements these days.
I remember one time I went out of town and was completely unprepared. I didn't bring any gf snacks and found myself hungry a lot of the time. I was staying with a friend and literally ate fruit the entire weekend because I felt like a weirdo asking to go to the store to buy myself some food! I've never let that happen again. I am not someone who handles hungry well.
It turns out that this blog is rewarding in a way I didn't anticipate. My mom reads the blog and when we arrived she said, "I tried to buy Nutella and Berry Kix and they were completely sold out!" I told her it was because everyone here is reading the blog. So next time you're going out of town, drop some hints about your favorite snacks. Thanks, Mom!
