Capturing my love of whole foods, combined with the activity of a bustling kitchen.
Top to bottom:: cashew hummus, roasting marshmallows, hibiscus tea, almond/cranberry/raw cacao liquor turtles, salmon burgers, strawberries ready to dunk in chocolate, tea making, hotel kitchen.
Today I am posting from a hotel room."Testing" the iPad interface for my blog app (I have never used this to post, only view stats and comments), so I apologize if it adds funny borders or makes the photos small. We shall see!
A key feature to any travel with food allergies is a hotel room with a full kitchen, and packing all snacks and meals and condiments to take along. We cannot eat in restaurants, stop for fast food, or grab a snack anywhere we go. No breakfast buffets. While it may seem very cumbersome and inconvenient to have to travel this way, it also has many benefits. Yes, we haul a lot of food and don't exactly travel "light" and can only stay where there is a kitchen, but we also eat healthier since we eat our own food (and don't stop for fast food). I've also realized how much extra money it saves us (giving us a bigger budget for other things). If we need something we find a grocery store, not go out to eat. We don't leave home for long as my allergy boy is also very sensitive to being away from our house, but we love short outings!
