Maintaining a gluten free diet is challenging, but additional challenges are added when traveling, often putting a damper on vacations and trips. Traveling with a food allergy or dietary preference can be a challenge. For example, if you or someone in your family needs to eat gluten free, you may need a strategy in place to make sure eating on vacation is not stressful. We think all vacations should include some delicious food, so we’ve included 3 tips below for eating gluten free on your Lake Havasu Vacation.
1. Plan ahead
You’ve heard it before: if you fail to plan, you plan to fail. This is true with eating on vacation. Before you leave on your trip, choose a few recipes or easy meals you know you enjoy, including snacks. Then you can decide if it makes more sense to pack some groceries with you, or have a grocery list ready to stop by the store when you arrive in town.
