1. ROASTED RED PEPPER HUMMUS, JARLSBERG CHEESE, CUCUMBER, BLACK PEPPER, SEA SALT. (Hard cheeses can go a long time without refrigeration.)
Hello, friends! With the start of summer travels, I thought that I’d launch a series of posts about eating good, simple foods that travel well. It’s one of the greatest challenges of travel, isn’t it? Access to healthy food. Especially if our only options are airports or roadside gas stations.
I do a lot of traveling in the summer and one of my favorite things is to buck the system by bringing my own food with me everywhere I go. I love sampling local and regional food when traveling, but gas stations and airports aren’t really the best places to do that. In fact, gas station food pretty much encourages you to eat junk. No thanks!
These foods have been field-tested for their ability to withstand smooshing and lack of refrigeration.
2. ALMOND BUTTER THREE WAYS: APPLES, STRAWBERRIES, BANANA. (Top with sea salt.)
3. SNACKS! MINI CARROTS, RAW UNSALTED CASHEWS, DRIED MANGO SLICES.
4. PACKAGED FOOD: OATMEAL (just ask for a little hot water in a cup – tah dah!), LUNA BARS (best pretend candy bar ever!), JUSTIN’S NUT BUTTERS (this stuff is crazy good! And the little packets are perfect for traveling.)
What do you like to take with you when you fly?
