10 Things You Might Not Think To Pack For A Culinary Tour #ReliefMadeEasy

You guys know that I love traveling. And I am particularly interested in themed travel. Recently, I did a culinary tour in Pittsburgh. We traveled from restaurant to restaurant and store to store, trying out all of the tasty things that the gorgeous city has to offer. And I must say, it was ridiculously good. But, in retrospect, there were a few things that I wished I had packed for my adventure, so I am offering my experienced advice to you today, dear traveler.


10 Things You Might Not Think To Pack For A Culinary Tour

Laundry Pre-treating Stick – You know you gonna get BBQ Sauce on your clothes girl! Or if it’s not BBQ Sauce it will be something else that will leave a nasty stain if not addressed quickly. No judgment! I don’t know about you but I’m not leaving a nice meal to go clean my shirt. So we pre-treat. ;)

Baby Wipes – These are so easy to carry in your purse and are super handy to wipe your hands when a bathroom might not be as easily accessible, like at a food truck festival.

Sunblock – A lot of food truck festivals and walking culinary tours are, naturally, outside. You need to protect your skin – something you might not be thinking about with all that tasty food on your mind.


Sunglasses – Your skin is not the only thing that needs protection from the sun. Be sure to protect your eyes from the sun’s harsh rays, as well.

Hand Sanitizer – Sharing is caring, except when it comes to germs. Be sure to keep your hands clean while you are nom nom nomming. :)

Toothpicks – It’s all fun and games until you get corn cob string stuck in your teeth. Yuck. No one wants a toothpick until they don’t have one. ;)

Pittsburgh’s famous Primanti Sandwich.

Breath Spray – When traveling from venue to venue, breath spray, mints or gum will definitely be nice to have to freshen things up a bit.

Comfy Shoes – Again, most culinary tours involve a lot of walking. When I was in Pittsburgh, we walked several streets, tasting something here, tasting something there. It was a lot of fun. So be sure to wear some really comfy shoes. But just in case your feet still hurt…

Salt Soak – Sometimes, no matter what precautions we take in the shoe department, our feet still hurt. Pamper your tired feet at your hotel the night after your tour with a nice salt soak.

MiraLAX® – Let’s face it. Sometimes the food we love doesn’t love us back. If you have trouble with occasional constipation after your culinary tour, you want something that’s easy on your body, from a safe and effective brand that you can trust. And the single dose MiraLAX® Mix-In Pax® are perfect to carry in your bag.

MiraLAX® works with your body’s natural process to provide effective relief from occasional constipation. Because it works with the body, MiraLAX® provides a gentle experience, and doesn’t cause harsh side effects.
– Use as directed.
– MiraLAX® is different from stimulant laxatives.
– Stimulant laxative pills make your body go by forcefully stimulating the nerves in your colon. MiraLAX® works with the water in your body to hydrate, soften, and ease, unblocking your system naturally.

You can purchase MiraLAX® at your local Walgreens.
