28 Mar / Travel Wheat-Free, Dairy-Free and Low Sugar
Recently, I had to fly into the Windy city to cover a tradeshow. Long hours and a long flight typically equals no possible way to eat wheat-free, dairy-free and low sugar. Especially on the airplane. You’re lucky if you even get water when you’re at 30,000 feet.
So, this time I decided to be prepared. I packed snacks, snacks and more snacks, and guess what? I survived both the flight there and back, and had food left over. Since eating while working the show was out of the question, my snackage also came in handy. One tip: make sure you pack enough Odwalla or Cliff bars, I didn’t anticipate that there would be no time for breakfast, so I could have used more of those.
Here’s a list to get you started for your next trip:
-Cliff or Odwalla bars for breakfast or meal replacement
-Luna or Larabars for snacks and “dessert”
-Trail mix – I make my own since I’m picky. Go to the bulk foods section and get a fruit mix and then add the nuts of your choice.
-Almonds or other heart-healthy nuts (cashews are another fave!)
-Corn and flax chips – discovered these in the bulk food section of Winco. The best! Any type of small corn chip (no trans fats though) will do, these had a healthier punch with the flax.
-Homemade chocolate chip cookies. Yum!
