Best Non-Perishable Foods for Travel

When planning a trip, think of tasty, nutritional, non-perishable foods you can enjoy.  A few suggestions might be:

  • Fresh Fruit – firm fruit is best like a whole apple so it will not get smashed.
  • Nuts or homemade trail mix
  • Bars (protein bars, fruit/nut bars, natural fruit bars, or granola bars)
  • Dried fruit
  • Pretzels in a sealed container or bag to avoid getting smashed
  • Popcorn chips


Travel-friendly perishable foods

Another option in traveling with your own prepared food sources are travel-friendly perishable foods that will still keep you from spending too much $$$ in fast food and traditional restaurants:

  • Vegetables like carrots and broccoli tossed in olive oil or dipped in almond butter
  • Hard boiled eggs (pre-peeled)
  • Pre-cooked roasted sweet potatoes
  • Meats like shrimp, chicken, or beef pre-cooked and cut into strips
  • Single serving packs of guacamole and healthy but tasty chips
  • Slices of raw milk cheeses

(Store perishable foods in airtight containers)

Best Food to Eat Before Air Travel (Eating before and during a long flight).

Before and during a short or long air flight, suggested small meals might include:

  • Nut butter and bread or toast
  • Hummus
  • Small sandwiches and wraps
  • Tuna
  • Quinoa
  • Brown rice
  • Chia seeds
  • Crackers
  • Smoothies
  • Drink lots of water

(A consumed full meal and unforeseen air turbulence aren’t a friendly mix)
