So my husband and I went camping in August, yes, with a tent, in Big Sur, CA.  The weather was perfect and it wasn’t too cold at night.  We also bring all of our own food and, of course, it’s gluten free!  My husband isn’t celiac or gluten intolerant but he goes gluten free for the 5 days with me!  The only thing he’s not too keen on is gluten free beer.  We brought two gluten free beers with us – one Ale, and one dark ale.  The brand from Green’s is the best in my humble opinion because it’s not made with sorghum.  They are pretty good but just a bit different from regular wheat beer.


Here’s a picture of McWay Falls, Big Sur, CA – it was a beautiful day.

Anyway, living gluten free while camping is not that difficult.  All you need to do is some up-front planning.  What will you make for breakfast, lunch, and dinner?  We cooked eggs for breakfast but one day we made pancakes with oat flour – so yummy!  Lunches you will need to purchase g-free bread like Udi’s.  Dinner – meat and vege’s.   Let me know if you need help with planning.

    Just started on the gf odyssey, and what a trip so far! All the small things on the end of the ingredient list can be so baffling… to soy or not to soy? I do have to say that I have more energy and am feeling better than I have in years. And the digestive problems I’ve lived with all my life (you know the ones that are such an every day thing it’s NORMAL for you), have begun to ease up. Amazing. And who would have thought that malabsorption/malnutrition can lead to obesity? Yes, I’m sure there are other factors at work in that area, but as I continue to eliminate the gluten the pounds keep coming off. And as long as I keep a supply of Immodium A/D for those times the sneaky little ingredients catch me off guard, I’ll keep on track. Thanks for this forum, it has helped so much!
