Eating Sushi is a Gluten-Free Dream

As soon as I started eating out “gluten free” I discovered the simplicity of going for sushi. I could order a plain platter of sashimi and bring my own gluten free soy sauce. I still ask for my fish to be prepared on a clean surface, double check that no sauces are used on my dish and check the ingredients of the wasabi and ginger. But, there is a certain level of transparency with sushi that you don’t find with other cuisines and cooking techniques.Sushi quickly became the easy restaurant option; I didn’t need to do as much research upfront and I knew there would be SOMETHING I could eat (even if it was just steamed edamame). When I was first diagnosed I would carry a bottle of soy sauce with me to the sushi restaurant. It’s a little unwieldy to keep a bottle of soy sauce always at the ready in my purse so I needed some advanced notice to get a “quick” sushi lunch or dinner. Last year Kari-Out came to the rescue and launched gluten free soy sauce packets. Now I can carry these handy packets in my purse and always be ready for a last minute meal.

They can be ordered here, along with plenty of other travel sized packets of salad dressing, mustard, or even steak and BBQ sauce all great for gluten free travel.
