I'm leaving for Iceland! for a week with my boyfriend on Sunday - first big vacation, very exciting!

Since I'm blessed with the pains of Crohn's, I need to snack often. I'm working on making a list of items to pack and buy and wondered if there were good travel snacks anyone could recommend?

I have certain snacks or foods that I like to have on hand, and I know that I want to bring a supply since I will be in a different country. Sometimes I get stuck in a snack rut, get tired of what I have and am always looking for something different.

Any suggestions would be great! Thanks

I like balance protein bars. The yogurt kind, not chocolate.

Dr. Andrew Weil makes an all natural bar that is gluten-free, organic, etc. "Bannana Manna" is our favorite flavor, but the others are good, too. We took a trip abroad this summer and packed those along with different nuts--my son especially likes cashews. We also took Fruitabu fruit roll-ups (organic section, I think they say "smooshed fruit" on the label). They are pure fruit with no sugar added and waaaaaayy better than the more popular brands marketed to kids!!! Fruitabu also makes fruit leather, but the roll-ups are truly amazing!

Have a wonderful trip!

Good question! I have no idea, so I googled them. They have the cutest website I think I've ever seen! Unfortunately, I tried to put a Canadian zip code in their store locater and it wouldn't accept it. So I guess that may mean they're not available in Canada? It says you can order online, though. I also saw Amazon.com has them. Good luck!

Tinned almonds (just almonds - no mixed nuts) and plain unsweetened dates (you need to get a bag with ingredients listed - not bulk) are my favorites. I know that some people can't tolerate either one though.

I like peanut butter cracker sandwiches. And I like to snack on dry cereal, so I pack individual bags with portions of chex. I'm also never without saltines, since I never know when I will feel a little tummy upset and they alway settle my stomach.
