Q: I am a-gluten-intolerant and moderately lactose-intolerant vegetarian, and I am going to soon take an 11-hour bus (each way) to Toronto for a trip. I need to figure out two cold meals to take with me for the ride. I will have access to all my gluten-free ingredients before the ride up, but I won't have anything with me for the way back. Do you have any suggestions for meals I can bring with me on these bus rides that won't upset my sensitive stomach?

Editor: Geri, look to bean and chickpea salads, like this one, which will keep well for a long trip, unrefrigerated:
