"Emergency" Snacks for Mexico
Our family of 5 is thrilled to be heading to Mexico tomorrow for a week! We are staying at an all-inclusive upscale resort with several restaurants on the property. I am hoping and assuming that most foods will be fresh, local fruits, veggies, fish and rice. However, when we venture off property for day-long excursions, I'm worried about accessibility to gluten-free foods. We don't speak Spanish so, I'm also a bit concerned about translations issues regarding gluten. Therefore, we are bringing a huge bag full of pistachios, a gf trail mix, dry roasted edamame, a variety of gf bars, fruit pouches and my favorite Justin's nut butters. Hopefully these provisions will be enough to get my 2 favorite gf guys through a week of snorkeling, cenote exploring, pyramid climbing and zip-lining through Mexico! I'll be off the grid for the week, taking lots of notes about gluten-free dining in Mexico. I'll fill you in with lots of details when we return.
