Traveling by car, I had the luxury of being able to bring along a lot of gluten-free food and cooking supplies, including some new silicone baking mats and cupcake forms I want to try out. I'm going use them to line Grammie's baking sheets when we prepare gluten-free things for me. In the past, to avoid any gluten residue on her baking sheets, I've brought along my own metal cookie sheets and cupcake tins, but these flexible mats were a lot easier to pack and carry.
Every celiac knows how difficult it can be to eat well away from home. If you’ll be traveling by plane this week, take a look at our tips for staying safely gluten-free on airplanes. And no matter what your mode of transportation, if you're going to be spending the holidays out of town, our lists of celiac-friendly restaurant directories can help you decide where to dine at your destination. If you have any travel tips of your own, or restaurant suggestions for visitors to your town, please post them.
Whether you're going across country or across town this weekend, have a safe trip!
