Another business trip coming up in January.  I need to bring some safe foods with me to eat with my pills in the morning and to snack on when I don't eat at the dinners.
I'm bored with my usual foods.  Give me your traveling foods...things that won't splatter if shaken or crushed and don't need to be heated or chilled are best.  Think packed in luggage with business clothes & to be eaten in a hotel room without a fridge or microwave
Thanks everyone!
Dx'd '90 (emergency rupture), symptoms ignored long before that, '03 fistulas and bad flagyl reactions, B12 weekly, Pentasa [until I surrender to the bigger meds]
I'm riding on the escalator of life....

I love the Balance and Powerbar Yogurt protein bars. I think it is called honey yogurt peanut or something. There is no chocolate, and the peanuts are mashed up inside so they are not rough on the intestines.

I love pretzels as well whenever I don't feel well but those would probably crush.

I like rameen noodles/cup o' soup - just bring it to the lobby for hot water from the coffee cart. (You could probably eat them on the plane too if the flight attendant would give you hot water).

I will be bringing some on my flight 1/2 and some to Singapore in March. Always have food with you in case your flight gets stuck on the tarmack!!

I have been on a banana chip binge. Regular bananas cause problems for me but I found that if I eat dried fruit I'm usually ok. The bananas come in dried slices and I can tolerate them. I also like yogurt rasins for snacking.

I'd ask a flight attendant before eating peanut butter though. They will no if there are any passengers w/ peanut allergies on board. I only add this disclaimer b/c I know several people with anaphalactic allergies. Allergy+recirculated air=Not fun.

Mini bagels. I don't mind them dry, so I don't need any cream cheese or butter, but you could stock pile some little jam packs from restaurants if you plan ahead. Also with all the preservatives in them these days, they seem to keep for ever, so they would be good in your room for a while.

If you are looking for regular food, I like the foil pouches of tuna fish.  They pack well and don't need to be refrigerated or drained.   I probably wouldn't eat this on a plane but I have eaten it in the gate area waiting for a flight.

diovan, simvastatin and now trying good ol' zoloft
