I like to pack fruits and veggies, washed and cut up ad take that with me. I’ll even pack an entire lunch at times to avoid eating out!

Why not just pack a lunch?

When I go out I always have cup up pieces of apple and pear in a snap-lock bag, and have a healthy, filling, protein nut bar as well. I keep a couple of the nut bars in my handbag for emergencies anyway. Sometimes I also have a little 25g pack of Roasted Fav-va Beans, and leave that for last if I am still hungry. It works really well. If I don't need it, I can eat the fruit at home for a snack and the nut bar for another time, but if I DO need it, it works out cheaper and far healthier than any alternatives. I've also practiced this when I've had to rush off to hospital with my late husband or late Step-Father.

Can you keep a cooler bag with you? Then you can bring things like cottage cheese, yogurt, a hearty sandwich, or whatever perishable item.

Some portable items I like that are fairly healthy are Lara Bars, Kind Bars, fruits, vegetables. For example, I love apples but prefer to eat them as slices. So, I have containers with sliced apples in my fridge. When I want it, I just grab a container.

A decent nutrition bar made with real ingredients is Rx Bar. I find some better than others texture wise. My personal favorites are Coconut Chocolate Chip, Peanut Butter, and Chocolate Mint.

How far out are we talking about here? It might be worthwhile to find some restaurants that offer take out somewhere near your destinations. Maybe one or two per anticipated route (though if your route is really long you might want to add more). So let's say you need to head eleven miles north of where you live. Two miles beyond your intended destination could be an an asian restaurant that offers bowls, three miles closer to home might be a pizza place that has great soup and salad, or you could opt for the place five miles from your house that has the breakfast scramble all day. Basically plot out roughly where you are going, poke around and find a few decent options in the area, and you have your own mini list of options.

If you have a thermos that would really open up your options.From hot soup or stews or cold grain salads. Pbjs are staples for a reason. Actually bentology.com/category/menus/ covers just about everything you can put in a lunch. Shelf stable options include dried and dehydrated fruits and vegetables, those little fruit cups (Libbey also makes these for vegetables, not sure if you have to reheat or not), crackers (plain or the peanut butter or cheese kind), shelf stable hummus pouches, nut butter pouches, nuts, whole pieces of fruit, jerky (from tofu to beef, salmon to wheat, turkey to bison, they make jerky out of it now), gorp, popcorn, those tuna/cracker packs, cans or foil pouches of tuna (they may also do this with chicken), or nut mixes.

-google first. ask questions later.

I keep some healthy bars (like Kashi) in the car. When I worked I'd keep some bars, some dried fruit and dark chocolate.

Persistence is more important than perfection.

Don't assume your freedoms are assured.

If you're not outraged, you're not paying attention.

I’ve kept the following in my car:
Chunky granola (not a bar but almost as easy to eat)
Rye crackers
Dried fruit and raw nuts (small amounts.i once let walnuts go rancid..ew)
Extra water (double walled metal)

On me I’ll bring:
Sliced veggies
Small jar with a few dollops of hummus
Fresh fruit, on occasion. Usually one piece for long days


Wake up every day knowing you make the decision to begin your journey anew.

This choice in this moment defines now.
What is your now?

Small baggie of nuts is a great snack I use.

Being prepared makes all the difference!

I keep getting tripped up with sudden changes in schedule. With the restaurants closed, when my day gets turned around while I'm out and about I've been:
A. relying on fast food drive through
B. Not eating until I get home and then I over eat- healthily but I over eat.

It happened three times last week. Clearly I need to plan for emergencies by having a sort of bug out bag in the car with healthy goodies, but I'm not sure what to pack.

I don't want those high sugar diet bars.

What do you use?
