We had a vacation at my Mom and Dad's over Christmas and New Year's, and I wanted to give you a little glimpse of how we do vacations while following my special diet, the Specific Carbohydrate Diet.
We started out before Christmas on an overnight drive...and then stopped the next morning in Las Vegas. Stopping overnight isn't true Jim-&-Erin-style travel, but with my recovery from recent surgery we decided to take it a little easier this time. (Believe it or not, we've found that it's actually easier for us to drive straight through the night and through the next day than to stop at a hotel - the kids sleep through the night in the car making for less stops, and we have to deal with less traffic along the road!)
We looked for a hotel with a refrigerator in the room (of course, most hotels will provide one if you ask). This helped to store my precious SCD yogurt and cheddar cheese. We brought two coolers - this cooler with ice, yogurt, cheese, and other food and drinks for the rest of the family. We also brought a dry cooler for items like sunflower seeds (these from Trader Joe's), Mariani Trail Mix Honeybars and Sesame Honeybars (bought at Walmart), honey, raisins, these Larabars, plastic cups and plastic silverware for eating yogurt and honey or other snacks along the way.
