How I Travel Gluten-Free, Dairy-Free, Soy-Free
& Sugar-Free

After living with numerous chronic illnesses for over a decade, I've become the best co-pilot to bring along on any trip. We all know how tough it can be to eat healthy while traveling; add food allergies or intolerances to your trip and it can seem even harder. Aside from the endless packing and lingering jet-lag the last thing you want to do is spend hours in the kitchen preparing healthy food for your trip.

Chocolate Date Coconut Bars

From the Be Well Kitchen:
Chocolate Date Coconut Bars

Since we have pretty much given up eating refined sugar at home, people often ask what we do about sweets or desserts, thinking that we have given those up too! Well I'm here to tell you that we have not -- Frank has a real sweet tooth and I come from a long line of chocoholics! So what do we do? Once a week (well almost), I make my own. You're probably rolling your eyes reading this, but honestly, it does not take up much time or much effort and the rewards are so worth it. One of our current favorites are these Chocolate Date Coconut Bars.
