I listed my home for sale, sold it and bought a new place all in two short months. Talk about stressful! I wasn't prepared for was the amount of time I would have to be out of my home. Or the lack of safe on the fly, gluten-free options available to me. I was one hungry and grumpy lady for a little while there.
In retrospect, there is quite a bit I could have done in advance to make things easier on myself. I've created the list below to help you avoid having a hungry meltdown.
Make a list of safe places to eat
Prepare picnic lunches
Lunchbox friendly ideas include:
bagels, sandwiches, fruit, vegetables with dip, yogurt, and muffins. Just make sure you have a cold icepack ready to go.
Have prepackaged, shelf-stable food on hand
- Justin's Hazelnut Butter & Pretzels snack packs
- Popcorn and M&M mixture
- Dehydrated fruit such as raisins, cranberries, and apples
- Plain cereal, like Cinnamon Chex, makes a great snack
- Rice Cereal treats
Kitchen's are the heart of the home
Whether you're entertaining friends or playing board games with the kiddos, kitchens have become more than just a spot to cook and eat. They are the social heart of the home, a family space where everyone ends up. If you are looking for a new home, make sure you love the kitchen!
