The best snacks to travel with are those that do not need to be refrigerated, are small enough to pack easily, and require minimum effort to prepare. These are some of the vegan snacks I fly with on a regular basis. These are also great if you don’t feel like cooking or preparing meals before your trip. All of these snacks contain no meat, dairy, or eggs.
Cuties / other citrus fruit
Avocado – just ask for pretzels (or even better, bring your own whole grain crackers) and dip them into an open face avocado
Blueberries / other berries –I like to freeze my blueberries before I leave so they stay cold longer
Whole grain crackers
Oats – ask for hot water and make oatmeal on your flight
Dark Chocolate – 70% or higher
Dried fruit (no sugar added) – dried mango from Whole Foods is my favorite
Plant-based Protein bars –Kind Breakfast Protein are my go-to
Chickpeas – more specifically, Chickpeatos
Seaweed Snacks – you can get them at Trader Joe’s
Gopicnic snack boxes from Target – they’re like an adult / healthier version of Lunchables. They have 3 vegan boxes
Almond butter packets
Plant-Based Protein powder – individual packets
Healthy PB&Js! – Sunwiches by Dr. Praeger’s – I recently discovered these and they are amazing! It makes packing food so much easier. It is sunflower seed butter and grape spread on whole wheat bread.
Tea/Coffee (no added milk or sugar) – Bring your own tea bags if you don’t want the generic black tea that is on most flights
Water! – You become dehydrated from the dry air at high altitudes, stay hydrated!
