Today, we will give you some tips on how to easily get a hold of your gluten-free options even during travelling.

Plan Ahead

Pack some gluten-free snacks before you even hit the road. Buy some snacks that you love and are comfortable with travelling. These snacks should be easy to pack, eat, and should fill your tummy for long periods of time.

Get some snacks filled with healthy carbohydrates, fat, and protein to make sure you will be filled for a long time. Pack these in small and convenient containers to make sure you can reach for them anytime.

Get Gluten-Free Meals with your Airline

Contact your airline and see if they can provide you with a gluten-free meal. Most airlines offer this type of option, so make sure to ask and order if you need to. Most meals that have a restriction or is dietary-specific needs to be ordered at least 48 hours before your flight.

So make sure to visit the airline’s website, call them or send them an email to make sure you will be getting a gluten-free meal.

Pack Some Teas

Teas are a great way to break food down inside your stomach. For example, ginger tea can help with indigestion, motion sickness, and an upset stomach. For boosting the immune system, you should reach for peppermint tea. If you feel like you cannot sleep, then reach for some chamomile tea.

This will also reduce your anxiety and stress levels, leaving you with not only a calm tummy but also a peaceful mind.

Always prepare in advance to make sure you would not be having a difficult time during your travels. Good luck and enjoy your trip!
