Traveling Made Easier!

After being diagnosed with Fibromyalgia, I was pretty much bedridden for quite a long time. And prior to diagnosis, I actually had already pulled out of a lot of things as my body continued to become weak and non-functional.  Sometime after my treatment began, I was able to get around slowly.  And I mean sssloooowwwly…

When my body became a little stronger and I was able to travel, it was such a challenge as I couldn’t find the foods and drinks I can have at the stores.  It was difficult to find them as I became allergic or sensitive to so many ingredients.  For every product, I had to learn to read the back of the label and read EVERY SINGLE INGREDIENT.  I kid you not!  Try shopping for food and eating out while you are on vacation.  It is not easy!  I still have to do it today as I continue to heal.  But oh my!  Have things changed for the better!

It was a pleasant surprise to find more real, clean, whole foods available at stores that I can easily bring with me when I travel.  I used to only find them at Whole Foods, Trader Joe’s, but now Safeway, Raley’s, to name a few, are making healthier products available.  And new health food markets as well as sustainable cafes/restaurants are popping up as well.  Many more restaurants are also making dishes available for people with special diets.

Here’s an example of what I was able to carry with me as I traveled.  Conveniently packaged for on the go.  And of course, our island RAW granola has become a staple!
