It’s the perfect guide to eating clean while traveling!

If you check number 4, my tip was to…
“Call ahead! On my way to Rome, I called the airline to ask
for healthy gluten-free meal options and they were more than willing to provide.”

I made sure to call the airline ahead of time & request a gluten free meal. It was no problem at all & when the flight was 9 hours to Rome & 11 hours back, a nice warm gluten-free meal was key.

I also brought a lot of dried snacks like trail mix, packets

I was reminiscing through my Rome photos the other day & wanted to share a few with you.

It was the time of my life & I can’t believe it’s already been 2 years since!!

No, that’s not Cousin It on the left…that would be me!

We got to tour the Olympic Stadium & take a few laps…or just pose for the picture & pretend we ran.

The metro was somethin’ else!
I’m a girl who lives where the grass grows but is also close to a city…
so, I had to get used to having to rely on the metro to get us everywhere!

We spent a lot of time in the terminals.

We went to the top of the “Wedding Cake” building & the view was breathtaking.

This moment, while overlooking the whole city, really hit me & I realized…Wow, I’m in Rome, Italy.

We took a bunch of tours, where I remember always bringing apples & almonds in my side bag for snacks!

& The food….OH, the food.

This was tomato, basil, & fresh mozzarella with some gluten free pasta & wine! Yes, gluten free pasta in Rome! They actually have a lot of gluten free alternatives there. I printed out little index cards that read, “I am gluten free (senza glutine)” & explained everything in Italian. Since I didn’t speak Italian, I would hand these cards to the waiters & they could read them!

Again, gelato was unreal. When in Rome, right!?

By the end of our trip, we had the law enforcement on our side Winking smile

As you can see, I totally enjoyed the food, the people, the sights, & people I was with! I kept it mostly clean with eating but always left room for treats.

After all, we’ve got to enjoy the moments & opportunities that we’re given!

Have you ever been out of the country?
