Repost: Quick Food Ideas for Traveling on the GAPS Diet

from: http://gapsdietjourney.com/2010/08/food-ideas-while-on-vacation-and-staying-on-the-gaps-diet/
  • grilled chicken/steak/pork chop option with vegetables or salad from a “decent” restaurant
  • Larabars
  • Coconut Pecan Frosting peanut butter
  • apples cut up
  • carrot and celery sticks
  • (the above) dipped in peanut butter (or almond or any nut butter)
  • freeze meat and take it out right before heading to the airport. Butter, ghee, VCO or some fat in a container and carry it along with the meat.
  • Beef jerky
  • hard boiled eggs
  • raw zuccinni
  • Liver
  • Properly soaked nuts
  • avocado – cut in half, put back together
  • find the nearest Whole Foods (kraut, salad and other things)
  • Many restaurants will also work with special orders if you tell them you have food allergies.
  • Houlihans
  • Outback (Order the meat without the special seasoning and substitute additional steamed veggies (without the seasoning) for anything not GAPS-legal. Also any other steak and seafood place generally works.)
  • Chipotle- Order a carnitas bowl (no rice or beans) with the tomato salsa, lettuce and guacamole.
  • Jamba Juice- They have a few all fruit smoothies that are OK.
  • Hamburgers with just lettuce and tomato. If you get stuck you can always do that. In-n-out would probably be the safest of the fast foods. Make sure to tell them no seasoning.
  • Order things without spices and without butter if not currently on butter. Most restaurants are pretty accommodating.
  • cooking up some meat, chicken, etc., freezing it, bringing it in your suitcase and when you go out just order a plain salad, bring some olive oil, and throw on your own protein?
  • Hamburgers.
  • McDonald’s ¼ pounder is 100% beef.
  • Five Guys burgers also has 100% beef patties.
  • Easier to eat at real restaurants (i.e., not chains, not fast food).   The chains get their food shipped to them already semi-prepared so it’s tough for them to take sauces and ingredients away.
