Traveling Gluten Free and OWYN Protein Shake Giveaway

I travel a lot now. Sometimes it’s about 20-25 trips a year. Some months, I travel every weekend. While travel can be fun, it can also be grueling and exhausting and challenging. Sometimes I’m in cities that have so many awesome gluten-free restaurants and sometimes I’m in towns that don’t quite get what gluten-free even means. So I always travel with an arsenol of products to keep me surviving those challenging weekend.

Traveling Gluten Free

I came home from my last trip and emptied out my bag to show you exactly what I travel with on these trips. Here’s how I pack for gluten free travel!


  • Red Apple Lipstick: Rallye balm, lipstick, + mascara (affiliate)
  • Daily Concepts: Exfoliating Body Scrubber
  • Preparation H Totables -These are individually-wrapped flushable wipes that are safe for your number one or your number two
  • Poo-Pourri – If I have a roommate when I travel, this is a must.
  • Charmin Strong Toilet Paper – I cannot be the only one that travels with my own toilet paper!
  • Healthy HooHoo – the only feminine wash I use – Amazon sells the wash, the foaming cleanser, and the individually-wrapped wipes
  • Oral Essentials toothpaste and mouthwash
  • Earth Mama or Primal Pit Paste travel-sized “natural” deodorants
  • The Seaweed Bath Company body cream for dried-out hands from the flight
  • Radius – individually wrapped floss sachets
  • BeautyCounter Clean & Rinse shampoo and conditioner
  • DermaE facial scrub
  • DermaE hydrating facial wipes
  • DermaE firming magnetic clay mask



And of course, I never leave home without Nice ‘n Clean wipes, because I cannot afford to get sick on the road. I literally wipe down everything – from the hotel room remotes and light switches, to my entire seat on the flight to and from home!

Yes, I’m always on the road. And yes, I AM always tired, but I wouldn’t trade this life for anything. . . . This is my quintessential #roadlife trade booth photo. All my babies on my suitcase (that I often have to replace every year due to TSA wear and tear. My reusable silverware 🍴 kit with @gf_harvest oatmeal pouch, my @starbucks my @lacroixwater and my @liveowyn #vegan #dairyfree #glutenfree ready-to-drink protein shake. And my @nimasensor just in case things get questionable up in here. And my magazine I pour my heart ❤ and soul into every two months. . . . Sometimes life is hard you guys, but it’s incredible. I put be meeting fans and readers all across this country. I literally cannot do this without your support. Thank you. #sponsored #glutenfree #glutenfreeblog #glutenfreeblogger #glutenfreemagazine @myglutenfreeworldexpo #Utah #Travel #TravelBlog #TravelBlogger

    I’d love to try the cold brew coffee shake! I never end up buying protein shakes because they are just another thing to look at the ingredients and do research on (and sometimes I’m too damn tired of doing that!) It’s so good to know these are gluten and dairy free!

    I would travel with the cold brew coffee. I don’t drink coffee at home so this would be a special treat.
