Eating Gluten-Free: In An Airport

A few weeks ago I flew out to San Francisco for a whirlwind of a work trip. This was my first trip since I’ve started eating gluten-free and I was a bit worried about how I was going to make gluten-free choices in an office with catered lunches, eating on the go, and daily dinner with coworkers where I had no input on restaurant choice.

The first challenge presented itself in the first hour of my trip: breakfast at the airport.
While I would have loved to grab a breakfast sandwich, a bagel, or a delicious pastry from any of the vendors and restaurants at Pearson, I was determined to find a gluten-free option.

Starbucks Airport Gluten-Free breakfast

While I was taking care of priority #1 at Starbucks, I also grabbed a parfait (granola isn’t gluten-free but Starbucks offers ones with the granola in a separate compartment that I promptly threw away to avoid temptation) and then I grabbed a banana at a sandwich stand near my gate. While the price tag was a bit ridiculous ringing in at $15 in total, it was a small price to pay for a small gluten-free victory while traveling.
