How To Eat Well On The Road

How To Eat Well On The Road

Special guest post from Trevor Justice

So many people today have dietary restrictions — ranging from gluten intolerance to lactose intolerance to veganism. Special diets are so common, in fact, that restaurants have gotten used to making custom meals on the fly.

So if a restaurant doesn’t have an entrée you’re willing to eat, don’t be shy about asking for a custom meal.

Here’s a time-tested approach. Look at the menu for the ingredients in other entrees. Then ask if the chef could create a plate with just those ingredients.

Some sandwich shops will let you add grilled mushrooms to any sandwich. Keep it simple so it’s not too difficult or time consuming for the chef.
