  1. Hello and thank you for all these great tips. The one thing missing is can someone who follows an AIP diet go on a warm destination like Cuba, Dominocan republic, Jamaica etc… It’s not like you can fly with all your food, toaster oven, mini crockpot, prepared food etc…. Plus most of these destinations the food is included in the price. That being said I would also like to know of any other fun destination that accommodates AIP diets when one has to fly. We need a list of AIP destination world wide. We need AIP retreats that one can join a few times a year that are all set up and worry free. Ahhhh anyone interested in starting this business????

  2. I haven’t read all the articles, so maybe some or most of what I have to say has been mentioned. Over the past 7 years we lived in Southwest China and traveled quite a bit between China, Laos and Thailand, with occasional trips to America and South Africa. We always travel with a stick blender and can have smoothies when we are in a pinch, especially in the tropical areas where fruit and coconut milk is easy to find. We also always travel with a small cook pot or tiny hot plate, even when we were traveling overland with backpacks. Our luggage also includes a big cool bag that can be collapsed. After a few years we knew to pack a big plastic container with plates, some cutlery and a few small cups inside. The big container came in very handy to do dishes in small guest houses with only a minature bathroom sink or a shower as options for doing dishes. We also became experts at finding the supermarkets that have small containers of olive oil, carry organic meats and cheap stick blenders for the one time I forgot to pack our essential tool. We also always find the closest fresh market to our guest house and get as much as possible from there, like fresh coconut milk and herbs, along with fruit and veggies. For long periods of travel without access to food and cooking facilites, we packed roasted meat, coconut butter “candy”, homemade dried fruit, and squash “fries”. Oh, and all of this was with one or two little children, normally one of them on a back. We learned to pack as little as possible clothes to leave as much as possible space for food!

  3. It’s so difficult to eat out when traveling–lately we’ve been staying at hotels with kitchenettes. These are great resources–ahead of time and not when you’re hungry is the time to be equipped with options. Thanks for posting!

    1. So true! We’re traveling to visit family next month, but this weekend is when I’ll start planning. I’m going to read through these articles again and come up with my food packing list, restaurant options, and meal planning for when we arrive. I take my hunger seriously! 😉

  4. Great information. I have to avoid eating too much out or processed food. I try to pack a lot to take with us on car trips or we camp– which makes taking food with you even easier! Thanks for sharing this information with us on our Tuesday Blog Hop! Kerry at Country Living On A Hill

    1. I’m always impressed with Camping Mamas. I have strong memories of such trips when I was a kid, when my mother kept us well-fed in the woods. The best of both worlds.

  5. I am SO excited about this post! Since going on the AIP, I’ve felt robbed of eating out. Once I can introduce foods back into my diet (if hopefully I can) I’m sure it will be easier. I can’t wait to check out these links and read up on how to travel without feeling like “the oddball”.

    Thanks for the info!

    1. I have some travel planned this summer, so gathering this information will help me, too. What I found most inspiring were the international trips, because I really thought those would be off-limits now. It’s exciting to think the world is still open for us.

      1. We lived in Germany for 6 years, and I was gluten-free (though not paleo) the whole time. I found eating out to be much easier there than here in the States, primarily because most restaurants there are still owned by individual owners, rather than large chains. They know what they’re cooking…it does not come from a central processing center pre-frozen, etc.
