Eating While Travelling with IBS
Posted 18 June 2016 - 10:16 AM
I have both IBS-D and lactose intolerance (fun combo!), and have to travel a LOT, which means I've had to learn how to manage traveling fairly quickly. The one problem I have is eating while traveling. Staying somewhere for a prolonged time without having access to a kitchen really messes with my digestion. Even if I try my best to stick to my diet, I end up eating too many greasy meals and too many 'mystery' meals (in terms of dairy content), not to mention that eating at regular times can be a problem. No matter how careful I try to be, my digestion always goes haywire by the end of the trip.
One obvious solution is to stay at an AirBnB that has a kitchen, but cooking /all/ my own meals while traveling is not always logistically possible - and if I'm staying with a friend, that can be imposing/rude.
I was wondering if anyone had any creative ideas about how to deal with this? This is obviously not the worst problem when it comes to traveling with our condition, but still one I'd love to learn how to deal with!
