Healthy Vegan Travel Snacks

For more like this, check out all of my Food & Recipes and Travel Posts


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.
