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!!


I love the " snacking" aspect of them. You get a meal, in little snack packets. You can keep one for later or eat all the little packets now. I don't care for tuna but the hummus, sun nut butter, turkey pepperoni and the black bean ones are all good.


You can also get little squeeze packs of PB and walnut butter, etc at health food stores.

I don't like tuna either but all of those others sound amazing!! I needed another excuse to get into the health food store (they make amazing home made soup and it's safe to eat!!), then I can pick up some squeeze packs!

Make some muffins or loafs ahead of time and take them. I really like coconut flour because they don't turn dry and crumbly as fast as rice flour products do. I add flax and protein powder to all my baking to give it a bit of a nutrition kick. Seeds, nut and hemp hearts all give a fat and protein boost to baked goods that will fill you up longer.

I like to bring smoothies for my kids when I travel. Again I add hemp hearts and protein powder to fruits and veggies, along with cocoa to disguise any green tint, and my kids are happy.

I like leftover egg bakes for myself. I wilt a bunch of greens, add onion and other veggies, maybe some salmon and some Daimyo (cheese substitute) and pour eggs and salsa all over it. Let it cook on the stove in a frying pan until the edges start to set and then pop it in the oven to make the eggs fluffier. A tastey leftover... especially if you don't mind cold eggs.

Junk food is fun on a road trip too.... ;)

I take hard boiled eggs. I have also taken canned meats from a natural food coop. These fill in in a pinch if I find nothing else. Getting a 12 volt oven for the car makes for an adventurous trip. I heat leftovers or cook new in mine. Atleast I did before it konked out on me last trip. I was glad that I had cooked the fish before taking it. I found out I could eat cold fish and sweet potato.

If there is somewhere you can cook an electric skillet is a great tool.

YUM! Thank you for all of the great suggestions! I love the egg ideas, I am a huge fan of eggs! I am hoping to get better at my gluten free baking but so far everything I've tried has been a flop. I'm not really sure what I'm doing wrong?!

I would like to find a food co-op around here, I've heard great things! I never thought about hard boiled eggs, that would be easy to pack! Where did you get your 12 volt oven??

I have a toddler, so I've gotten used to packing food everywhere I go. Really, that seems the easiest answer for me. Then I don't have to find a restaurant and wait around for food either. :)

I'm used to packing kid food too, I guess I'll just have to get in the habit of packing a small cooler for all of us. At the very least it will safe us some money!!

Boost is a great meal supplement (gluten and lactose free) - I carry one and drink it if I get too busy to eat (taste better col though so leave room in your cooler for a few!)

I didn't know Boosts were gluten free. I'll pick some up, that's a great idea!

Boosts?  Never heard of them before.  Looked them up :rolleyes: :

 

"Green tea, guarana and ginseng with 120mg of natural caffeine." :unsure:   Don't need that kind of boost - thru the roof???

No. I think she means Boost meal replacements. Like Ensure.

I also just discovered those Go Picnic things at my Target. They're pretty good, and it's more food than you'll think when you first open the box. I sometimes take one to work if I'm in a hurry, along with a banana and some carrots or something like that.

 

You didn't really define what "out and about" means. For me there are several versions of that. One is that I'm out for a few hours, shopping or seeing a museum or something. For that I always take a bar of some kind -- Lara, or Glutino cereal bar -- some nuts, and some dried fruit.

 

For a road trip I take a cooler. Yogurt, cheese, sliced chicken breast, hummos and veggies....depends on where we're going and whether there's a refrigerator on the other end. Usually there is because I always get one at hotels.

 

For airplane travel this is a whole different story. The last time I went on a long flight I packed in my checked baggage: peanut butter in individual packs (Costco sells a large box of these), some Go Picnics, dried fruit, and nuts. In my carry on I had the peanut butter (in my quart-sized ziplock, along with a small toothpaste and small hand lotion which were the only other things that needed to be in there), dried fruit, nuts, a Go Picnic, hard boiled eggs, lunch meat/cheese roll-ups, fruit, and yogurt (also in the ziplock bag). I was prepared for the airline meal to be horrible and it was. :ph34r:

 

And for whoever mentioned the upcoming Israel trip...there's a thread over in the travel forums on this site that talks about Israel. I went there a couple of years ago and it was wonderful. I commented on that thread about my experiences. There will be plenty to eat and the hotels will be more than accommodating. (still take a few things of your own of course, especially for lunches out.)

A lot of times I am gone all morning running errands and just need a few things as a pick me up. But other times we are gone for the whole day and fast food just isn't an option.
