This is a very general question because as of yet I have no idea where we'll be staying or if this trip can even happen!
I have celiac disease and a few other autoimmune diseases, so I eat a very specific diet to help me manage them - no gluten, dairy, beans, grains (including rice), corn, soy, tomatoes . . . I think that's it! I try to always eat grass-fed meats and organic veggies because I do sometimes have reactions to the pesticides used.
How difficult will I find it to eat in CR? Do restaurants generally prepare foods from scratch and can just make me a plain piece of meat and a side veggie or are they "pre-made" like most restaurants in the U.S.? I am fine with all seafood . . . and I'm assuming this is widely available in CR??
I don't follow a typical gluten-free diet because I still find GF substitutions to be pretty junky and full of soy/corn/rice, etc. I'd rather just find real food options like good quality meat/seafood and veggies/fruits.
I always pack some easy snacks like beef jerky, so I'll at least have a backup plan, but I can't live on that alone for 10 days!
Now avocados, on the other hand, I think I could live on! When are they in season??
Thanks for any info!
