Do you typically haul a bunch of shelf-table gluten-free snacks on trips with you (you know, your favorite gluten-free snack bars, crackers, cereals, chips, even peanut butter) so you don't have to "hunt down" safe snacks when you arrive at your destination? Well, now there's a better way...at least if your travels take you to the Orlando area...
I was recently introduced to a new company called Gluten Free Delivery Orlando, which helps provide a worry-free Orlando vacation for people following gluten-free diets. While they don't do all your gluten-free shopping for you, they do offer various meal packages, depending on the length of your stay.
They offer 2-day, 4-day, and 7-day packages of gluten-free food. Each "day" supply for one person contains breakfast items (including fresh fruit, juice, milk, and coffee), lunch items, and plenty of snack foods. That means the only meal you have to plan is dinner (and with all the gluten-free options at the Disney parks and resorts -- as well as all the chain restaurants nearby that offer gluten-free menus -- that's rarely a problem).
There are FOUR varieties of packages: Basic, Chocolate Lover's, Health Food Lovers, and Casein-Free.
Their prices for their packages are reasonable -- certainly less than you'd spend eating out. Best of all, they provide FREE delivery to your hotel. And if you have items left at the end of your trip, most can easily be packed for a snack on the plane!
Gluten Free Delivery Orlando also plans to eventually expand their assortment to include refrigerated items and items requiring toasting (and will even provide a new toaster for your gluten-free items).
I know it's something I'll keep in mind the next time our family visits Orlando.
