Traveling and The Week Ahead... 11/19/12

We'll be traveling this week for Thanksgiving. Between a gluten- and cow-free person and a 2.5 year old, we bring a lot of our own food. We have a 4.5 hour drive to Pittsburgh, so we typically stop some place for lunch and it's easier to pack lunches. We also bring supplemental food for the rest of trip, just in case. Below is a list of the items we typically bring with us:

  • hummus
  • veggie straws
  • deli meat
  • individual fruit cups (mandarin oranges, peaches)
  • mozzarella cheese sticks
  • leftovers (probably 2-3 servings)
  • dried mango
  • individual cups of strawberry yogurt
  • cereal
  • Lara Bars & granola bars
I'll be bringing two pies for Thanksgiving Day, pumpkin and pecan. Both will be GF, per the method in my previous post. If you have difficulty finding the crust recipe, I've pinned it to my "Food - Dessert" Pinterest board. Unfortunately, my nutritionist recommended this past week that I try grain free (except quinoa) for a few months, so I won't be eating much of the traditional fare, including pie.

Monday: veggies over quinoa pasta

Tuesday: beet salad
  • prep slow cooker
Wednesday: slow cooker sausage, spinach, and beans over quinoa
