It amazes me that with the prevalence of people with sensitivities, intolerance, allergies and even by choice, that it is still nearly impossible to find food at a restaurant that is not contaminated, or pre-made foods at the airport and on airlines. Though, I knew this ahead of time and I also know that I need more food than the 'average' person. I need to eat small meals about every two hours to keep my body feeling well and my mind in focus.

Anyway, that's just a glimpse into what goes into my mind and into my suitcase when I'm traveling somewhere. Food not only effects my gut, it effects my entire body including my mind. An example is with wheat- I immediately get vertigo, hot and have a general feeling of being 'off.' I don't think I'm the only one that has that problem. So while some people think that I am just being careful because I don't want to have GI issues- it's much much more than that. It effects how I act, think, talk and overall what I do.
This summer I will be going on a road-trip and and we are already discussing getting dry ice and we will have to buy our dry goods ahead of time because our destination in Northern Michigan, will not have coconut flour and almond milk.
I sure hope that one day, all markets do ;)
