What's In Your Purse?

Recommended Posts

Anybody have any favorite tried and true go to snacks that you pack in your purse?

 

I've slacked lately on stocking my car kit and I'm thinking that I need to pack a little more in my purse. I ordered some Hellman's mayo packets in bulk and plan to keep some in my purse with a can of gluten-free vegan tuna, some gluten-free crackers, and a KIND bar. Then I have something fast, even if I don't get around to restocking my box for the car.

Gluten free since 2/14/2010 after suffering a rare and serious complication from my gluten challenge

It took 3 !/2 years but my intolerances to corn, soy, and everything else (except gluten) are gone!

Life is good!

Sounds like some of you pack your purse with fresh food every day and carry around enough for a couple of full meals!   :D

 

 

I just try to keep a couple of light weight things, like a small pack of nuts, in case I get caught away longer than I thought.  If I know I am going to be away - then I pack a lunch.

Kareng, you  are  right --- I carry enough  for several people so  in the  event  something  happens  I can also share with  other  hungry people...When  people ride with me they  are always looking  for  my goodie  bag! even the gluten  eaters!  I do also always  have  a  bin in my  trunk with  water & juice......gluten free people  who  ride  with me always say they feel secure  when  with me & my  car.....we are  road warriors  so  many  places  there  is  nothing  gluten-free   to  eat along  our  journeys.....

Yes, I just carry peanuts but it is enough peanuts to feed me and three gluten-free boys in case lunch is delayed by an hour or so.  LOL

For everyday, I just keep a granola bar or two in my purse in case I am stuck out and get hungry.  I also have three pillboxes in there that have any medication I may need (OTC and RX) for all my issues, and a 5 hour energy in case my lupus fatigue gets so bad I gotta have caffeine to get to where I am going. And a bottle of water- I always take one with me when I leave the house.  If I am gone for a good part of the day like my long drives and waits for specialist appointments, I will throw a bunch of water and snacks in my car and purse.  Really just depends on what is on hand.

I was diagnosed with Celiac Disease in January 2013. I also have Lupus and Common Variable Immunodeficiency(CVID) for which I am on IVIG.
