Gluten Free Travel Snacks and Food for COVID Camping
I love camping. I love the outdoors, sleeping outside, sleeping in my hammock, having a campfire every night, not caring about smelling like campfire smoke or makeup. The beautiful trails I hike and the out-of-the-way places I find when I’m taking that road trip to my next camping spot. There are so many things to love!
Storing Food for COVID Camping
Use dry ice! There are several reasons not to use regular ice in your cooler.
Be careful not to touch dry ice with your hands as you can get a burn. Handle with paper or a towel! Although a bit more expensive, dry ice is worth the extra cost because of the benefits listed above.
Best cooler: Yeti coolers they are pretty pricey, starting at $79.99 for a lunchbox, however; they are the best option when you are not going to be near any dry ice for days. The description from their website reads, “Extreme insulation power and durability are bare minimum requirements for every cooler we make — and we never stop there. Our hard coolers don’t flinch in the face of snowstorms, the beating sun, or even bears, and our soft coolers are leakproof, waterproof, and quick to carry. As for our foldable lunch bag, that’s only for those of you who enjoy ice-cold drinks and a fresh meal on your lunch menu.”
What You Can Eat On a Gluten-Free Diet
Let’s face it, when we want a tasty dessert, eating gluten-free, shall we say, can be challenging to put it mildly. Unless you are eating at a dedicated gluten-free restaurant, dedicated bakery, or a gluten-free friendly establishment, your choices of gluten-free desserts can be limited to none.
When we are eating in a category other than desserts, our food choices are much more diverse and far-reaching. With so many food choices, eating gluten-free can be fun and push us out of our box to explore and create new dishes and desserts. Being gluten-free can even make us an advocate for gluten-free that tastes good!
When you’re out and about, whether shopping or dining, keep this list handy! Although extensive, this is not a complete list of all gluten-containing foods. Your best defense is to be an informed, excellent label reader and check out the label before you buy every time you shop. Don’t ever assume that a jar of nuts or trail mix doesn’t have gluten because it says gluten-free on the box. Make sure to read through all the ingredients, then look to see if there is a warning for cross-contamination.
