Snack smarter with these 10 healthier travel friendly snacks that are easy to take anywhere. These gluten free travel snacks range from vegan, grain free, dairy free, and paleo options.
I write this from Liverpool having just come back from a quick weekend in Dublin. I’ve got one day to get my bearings before I head to Arizona to spend Thanksgiving with my family.
That being said, I’m trying to be on my best behavior by not checking into vacation mode too soon and not eat all the airport junk (the really addicting and delicious airport junk) that tempts me at every terminal. As much as I love pop tarts and cheez-itz, I genuinely feel better giving the junk food a miss.
