Gluten-Free Road Trips — Menu Plan June 2

By · Print This Post Print This Post

MSRoadTripThis month, we’ve decided to make each menu swap theme revolve around typical summer activities. We’re starting with this week’s theme of Road Trips. So, whether you are planning a trip or have already started your vacation plans, please share your gluten-free food ideas with us!

When we travel, we usually bring a few snacks with us, shop at grocery stores for fresh produce, and eat out at restaurants that have gluten-free foods. For the car, we like to bring some water (but no too much or we’ll have to make too many stops!), grapes, oranges, carrots, and Trail Mix is a must. At gas stops, we might let the kids pick out some candy and chips (check the labels).

You may want to pack a bag of snack food for each person. They can pack their own favorites. When, they have eaten everything, they can use the bag for trash. Here are some more ideas for packing Gluten-Free Treats and Snacks.

For breakfasts, we often do fresh fruit with muffins or doughnuts. You can bring your own muffins for the first day or two, but after that you may want to make a trip to the store. Many grocery stores now carry gluten-free muffins and doughnuts in the freezer section. A quick defrost in the microwave, and you’re back on the road. If you’re lucky enough to be in the right area, you may even find some gluten-free pancakes, waffles, or other GF breakfast foods — at The Original Pancake House, Babycakes, and Snooze Eatery, for example.
