Want to know what a gluten-free, dairy free, sugar-free menu for on-the-road looks like? Here's my tentative menu plan so far. It assumes four people traveling.

Day 1 - 11 hr. drive - supper on the road.
B - Egg, Rice Cake, salsa
L - tabbouleh, coleslaw, sandwiches
S - a cold soup, biscuits, salads from home

Day 11 - on the road 7 hrs.

So I need to pack a lot of the food to make this stuff. Probably I'll premix dry ingredients into zippered bags and just take wet ingredients with me. Plus I need to take a blender, a loaf pan, some cheap pizza pan, and a sushi mat. Hubby is balking at the blender. If I don't get my smoothies periodically I am going to come back looking like the Goodyear Blimp! Don't know how to navigate that issue yet.
