Portable real food snacks - great for airplane travel

I've done a lot of traveling already this year, and am expecting more soon. A little more time spent sitting on planes and in cars than I would like!, but it's been for pleasure as well as business.

Traveling can make it hard to eat foods that make you feel good, and since starting a real food, Paleo lifestyle in December of 2012 I've learned some habits for staying nourished while in a strange place far away from my freezer and CSA subscription. I've found that keeping on hand some high quality protein and fat really help curb cravings and keep energy up when traveling - as you can see in my Bulletproof/Paleo travel tips (we've now successfully brought containers of coconut oil and Kerrygold butter though TSA screenings 4 times!). With the coconut oil and grassfed butter, we know we can approximate Bulletproof Coffee (shaken in a travel mug, at the very least) if we need, and if we're starving in an airport, at least we'll have some quality fat to level our blood sugar and keep us going.

But, coconut flakes, cashews, almonds, and coconut oil do get old after a while, so it was great to have a box of Cave Cravings on a recent trip! They sent me this box to try out just in time for our last trip.

They're a new company with the mission to "cultivate a variety of healthy snack options to fuel your busy life." Organic, quality, all natural snacks - grain free, dairy free, legume free, of course.

Great stuff in here! It was so nice to have the high quality grassfed jerky to eat when we didn't want something sweet, and the Bearded Brothers and Caveman Cookies treats were extra good dipped in a little soft coconut oil. (Going for maximum sustenance!) The Wonderfully Raw macaroons were probably our favorites of the box, though. So smooth and soft, not at all dry, and delicately sweet.

Thanks again to Cave Cravings for the box! Check out their website, Facebook, and Twitter if you're interested - perfect for your next trip!

  3. We've been using coconut oil on our daughter's skin—it works wonders for her eczema—so I have to laugh thinking of you dipping cookies in coconut oil! :)

  4. Real caveman cookies? Nice. I just cheat, as long it is gluten free.
