8 Ways to be Gluten Free While Traveling

A common food ingredient I see on my client’s food sensitivity & GI Map test results is GLUTEN. Gluten sensitivity can cause gut inflammation, intestinal permeability, weight management issues, and damage to the gut biome. 

Giving up any food even though you know it makes you sick can be difficult. Especially for an ingredient like gluten because it’s found in wheat, which is typically a big part of your normal diet. 

I mean, how does one live without these salad toppers or these morning kickoff foods??? No fear, it’s possible and you will learn to love it!

Foods that usually contain gluten:

  • Bread, pita, bagels, flatbread, rolls
  • Pasta
  • Cakes, crackers, and biscuits
  • Cereal and granola
  • Croutons
  • French fries
  • Gravies and sauces
  • Salad dressings and vinegars
  • Processed meats
  • Soy sauce
  • Snack and bars
  • Potato chips and tortilla chips
  • Stuffing

Maintaining a certain diet or avoiding certain ingredients when you work at home can be easier to follow but as the world slowly breaks free from the Covid lockdown you will be traveling more. 

Traveling and remaining on a gluten free (GF) diet is not impossible. 

Here’s a few tips to help you with your GF goals while traveling:

  1. Google Map search restaurants which accommodate gluten-free meals. 
  2. Book a hotel room with a refrigerator and microwave so you make you’re own meals.  
  3. Pack an abundance of dry nutritious items like protein bars, nuts, carrots, or apples. 
  4. Google search for GF groups in the area you’re traveling. Reach out to them and ask them for local GF restaurant suggestions.  
  5. In airports, look for yogurt, salad, grilled chicken, plain hamburgers and other GF standbys.
  6. If you are traveling to a foreign country, print out your GF needs in the language of the foreign country. 
  7. If there doesn’t seem to be any option on a menu just ask the chef! Most will be happy to make something for you. 
  8. Avoid most condiments, especially soy sauce.

If you’re serious about feeling good and losing stubborn weight, take your food sensitivity test seriously. Removing the hidden stressors will help you break free from the vicious yo-yo weight loss cycle. Take the time to prepare before you travel. There are SO many options at the grocery store now, there’s really no excuse. When in doubt, grabbing a small cooler and packing veggies with hummus, fresh fruit, hormone free deli meat, and GF crackers or bread can help tremendously!
