Remember when, pre-diagnosis, you could just, if you so wished, head to the local convenience store and pick up a snack to satisfy that pang of hunger? I spent last week in a remote part of Scotland and had the foresight to take small packs of biscuits with me to take out on daytrips, incase my stomach started growling at me. Going up from London, where I have a whole range of GF products available at my local supermarket, I wasn't convinced I would have the same luck up in Scotland! I took some packs of Byron Bay cookies, some GF muffins (breakfast stuff!) and some Halva (note: it wasn't until I tried t eat the Halva that I remembered I hate the stuff!). OK, so it added considerable weight to my already stuffed suitcase, but I am so glad I took the extra bulk! We stopped in really remote, random places which didn't have GF options and I often found myself without anything to eat. Well, I would've had nothing, had it not been for the wonderful Byron Bay cookies I was carting around with me. Their double chocolate and fudge cookies are life savers and they will be accompanying me on all of my future travels. My tips for healthy travel: Whever you go, make sure you are prepared; Never assume that you will find something, no matter how small; Eat Biscuits.
