We have been out and about a lot lately and I'm finding it hard to find things to eat while we are on the road. I would like some things to keep in my purse. I'm not finding any tasty affordable protein bars, any suggestions?? Also, what else do you keep with you? I don't like being stuck with nothing to eat. I am still to scared to eat at restaurants yet so I really just want to be prepared!

I just started trying to figure out how I am going to go on a trip I was planning to Israel in June. I started looking for food I could keep with me in a backpack. I found individual pouches of tuna, pouches of almond butter and crackers. it's a start. also, kind bars are good to keep with you.

If you're just looking for handy things to have around for all the time, my go to things were Larabar, Kind bars, and Trio bars before I had to go nut free. Larabar has nut bars too which are pretty good. I still keep them around because on the days that we have outings I make my husband stay gluten free for the day but we have to carry snacks for him.

Being gone for more than a day takes a lot more planning and taking a cooler is probably the best idea. It isn't something I've done yet, but I am planning a trip in May and will not be leaving home without a cooler and plenty of things safe for me to eat. I'll also plan out stops where I can go to a grocery store rather than a convenient store to shop for fruit which won't travel quite as well. I'm sure I'll also have to pack a small traveling kitchen also.

Dutchgirl, you might want to look into some recipes made with almond butter and peanut
butter, like on Elana's pantry website. There's other places where you can find recipes
using nut butters as well. They freeze well, they're tasty, and high protein, with no icky
ingredients found in a lot of package stuff.

Also Lara bars, rice cakes, nuts, dried fruit (I love apricots and that extra burst of potassium comes in handy)

Now we can't take knives on planes I have ended up with a collection of really useful knives bought in supermarkets where we've stopped for lunch :) - I always try to buy a type of knife I don't have already. Then it's bring on the cheese, the fruit, the lettuce, the crackers, slice some ham (and some toms for hubs). I always have some paper plates and napkins in carryon and have a picnic set of salt/pepper and one of those disposable plastic cutting boards. Gluten free mustard scrounged from fast foods (hubs does this coz I don't go there) and off to the park for a big picnic :D

Great suggestion, I'm definitely doing this!! I will just have to get in the habit of packing the cooler and bringing it with me whenever I am going to leave for more than a couple of hours!

I will have to look for the pouches! Where do you find almond butter pouches?

I can still have nuts so I will look into all of those! I made my own Larabars once but I don't have a good food processor, I'll have to see if I can find some to buy. They were really good!

I will check out Elana's Pantry, thank you!! I have had ZERO luck with gluten free baking for some reason but I'm hoping my luck with change. I think I can save a lot of money if I start making things from scratch!

Your post made me hungry, that sounds so good!! I will have to pack some picnic supplies in our vehicle so I am more prepared.

These are good to keep on hand. They do make non- gluten-free ones, so read them. I get them at Target and HyVee ( grocery)

I like to keep these on my purse. I am one of the few that don't like Lara bars

Thank you!! I saw the hummus/tuna and cracker packs at Meijer the other day and I was wondering if they were any good. I'll pick some up!!
