Tips For Preparing Your Trip So You Can Stay Safe and Gluten Free
Tip #1: Plan Ahead and Pack Your Gluten Free Food
Planning and packing your own food is one of the best ways to enjoy your trip and ensure you stay safe while traveling. When you pack your own food, you will know what ingredients are in your food, and you don't need to take any risks eating out. Unfortunately, you can't always be sure what is in the food you can purchase at a supermarket or a restaurant or if the food they prepare for you at the restaurant has been cross-contaminated. This way, you can stay healthy, have food on hand whenever you are hungry, and ensure a good experience. Ensure you have the right equipment to take all your prepared food with you. For example, if you are camping, you can invest in the best men's tactical backpack to carry everything you may need to stay safe.

Why?

How to Travel with Disabilities Such as Celiac Disease or Another Auto-Immune Condition
If you have a loved one, friend, or relative that you enjoy spending time with but they don't quite understand the challenges of traveling gluten-free, forward them this article. I decided to write this blog post to give insight to those who don't live with a chronic illness to better understand what life is like when you live with an auto-immune disease or another chronic disease, syndrome, or disability.
Did you know that having an auto-immune disease such as Celiac, Hashimoto’s or Rheumatoid Arthritis equates to having a disability? Many people usually picture a person in a wheelchair or someone who has lost their vision, however; disabilities don’t always show up on the outside!
Traveling with a disability can be difficult and needs more preparation and consideration when creating travel plans. There are many details to consider before you go on your trip to have a great travel experience. Here is what you want to think when traveling with disabilities.
Even though 3.1 million people across the United States alone follow a gluten-free diet, traveling with celiac disease or related conditions can often cause worry. After all, nobody wants to feel sick when traveling - as it is an easy way to turn a great trip into the worst week of your life stuck in a hotel bathroom that you can’t wait to escape from. Whether you are heading out on a family road trip or planning a luxury hotel visit for yourself and your family, one of the easiest ways to go on a gluten-free travel adventure is to head to a destination that will be gluten-free friendly!
With that in mind, here are some of the best travel destinations for Gluten-Free travelers and, of course, fun things to do in each destination! Remember that you can listen to the Travel Gluten Free podcast to find specific episodes on many of these top gluten-free destinations.
