TRAVEL food:

Travel Food | OMventure.com

As soon as we arrive at a new destination, the first thing I do is visit an ecologically-minded market (co-op/green grocer) and stock up on healthy travel food. I seek out organic (non-GMO), plant-based, and gluten-free products, using the list below to help me shop. Since climate scientists have asked us to switch to these foods, it’s extra meaningful to take these important steps while traveling this lovely world. Many items below make great snacks all on their own (raw or quickly prepared). I also have this quick/easy travel menu, which shows how I can further prepare travel food. XO
