A bit about my stash…

by Lauren | Celiac Teen on September 24, 2008

Yes I have a stash.  A nice big one, most of the time.  Now before you get ideas, it’s a food stash.  That I keep in my backpack.  And always something in my pencil case.  After all, if my body needs food, it tends to need it right away.  And I tend to feel yucky after not eating for a certain period of time.  Like really yucky.  Not good.  

So… back to the stash.  It’s like this big plastic bag of food.  Filled with anything that is not fresh.  Bars of all kinds.  Fruit-to-gos.  Very Berry Enjoy Life Bars.  Think Protein Bars.  Even some chocolate bars.  The small ones.  And there are some other things, but those are the main things that I eat.  

I think that if you are gluten free, a stash is necessary.  The only question is where.  A backpack, a bag, a desk drawer, a purse, anywhere.  Oh, and you want to keep it healthy.  Don’t go to junk food, as it will be the only thing that you’ll want to eat.
Bars are the best.  They are easy to open, and if unopened, they last for a really long time.  And, best of all, you can eat them with one hand.  This can be really important if you’ve been touching things that might have touched gluten, as you don’t have to touch the food, just put it in your mouth.
So, if you don’t have a stash, go make one.  Like now.  I’m serious.  It’s best to do this before you forget.
PS – Another good thing is packages of almonds.  I love those!

This is excellent advice and I do the same thing. I have bars falling out of everything..purses, gym bag, car…you name it, there is a bar hidden in it.

Hi, I am a high school student living in Connecticut, USA, and while I am not gluten intolerant (I don’t think) I experiment with a variety of healthy recipes that eliminate certain ingredients, especially gluten and sugar. I have had two brain tumors, leaving me half=blind, and deal with major weight issues among others. This blog is uplifting and helpful, thanks very much!
