Vacation cheese board? Oh yes.

Any excuse to make a charcuterie board.

Tips for keeping a #cheeseboard allergy friendly:


  1. Make sure to have gluten free bread or gluten free crackers! I use gluten free grout blend or rice crackers. I never use an almond flour based cracker in case someone else is allergic.

  2. Add some fruit and veggies for extra color and snacking options. Add grapes, olives and dried fruit.

  3. Add a dairy free, vegan cheese!

  4. Skips the nuts. Add other crunchy options such as crunchy corn or crispy chickpeas.

  5. Add honey or fruit spreads.

If you have allergies like I do, I know traveling can be stressful and full of anxiety. I’m listing below some things that help me prepare ahead of time to ease the anxiety!

TRAVELING WITH ALLERGIES


  1. Bring some snacks with you for the hotel or house! For this trip we made a grocery shopping list for what we wanted when we got down to South Carolina. I made sure I got some gluten free bread from a brand I usually buy. We got some cliff bars and Rx bars, in flavors I’ve had before so there’s no stress about it I can eat them! That way I feel safe eating what I normally do when I cook or snack at home.

  2. Similarly, bring a few snacks in your personal bag in case there’s no safe food to eat at the airport. This is super important and helps me feel the safest on the road.

  3. If you’re staying at a hotel or resort, call ahead of time. Ask about their menu. Do some research. Google the menu + “gluten free” and see if other people recommended anything.

  4. If you have reservations, review the menus ahead of time. Call and speak with a chef or manager. Even better if you can help pick the restaurants so you know you can eat something besides a side salad! I ALWAYS do this.

  5. Make sure you bring Benadryl, lactaid, Imodium, tums... whatever you need to get you through in case you eat something you didn’t mean to. If you have an epi pen, BRING IT.

  6. Talk to someone. I always talk to Andrew about it when I’m feeling anxious about not being able to eat food. Don’t stress out by yourself. Tell a friend who’s traveling with you, a significant other, a parent. They can help you do research, and help talk you through your anxiety.
