The last time my husband and I flew, we each had a ziploc bag, and we had apples, mandarin oranges, he had peanut butter crackers, I had goldfish crackers, we had a little something sweet-easter candy, but also in mine I had a Luna Protein Bar. It worked out quite well and we didn't have to much on airline pretzels/peanuts.

Zelda13 what a great idea! I never thought of using frozen juice boxes as a cooler. We usually freeze some water bottles but they get messy as they thaw.
Could you find a cooler to plug into your outlet in your car while you travel and just bring ice or somethingto keep everything cold untio you eat? By outlet I mean the one for chargers and etc. in almost any car. My parents have one of those and they are handy, if you can use it and keep the food cold on the go and then something else to keep it cold instead of using the cars battery it might be helpful. They make reusable insulated shopping bags that might be helpful too and they work surprisingly well at keeping foods hot or cold.

Looks like the consensus involves peanut butter sandwiches and some sort of granola bar. And I can dip my apples in peanut butter too. Thanks for the input. I'm heading ot the store after work today.

I went this last weekend to SO's hockey tournament. It's in a community center where they have a small concession stand that only sells pizza, burritos, and pretzels. So, I packed some snacks. I brought along some fiber granola bars, trail mix, and little bags of beef jerky. Oh, and my own water. I also made a couple of peanut butter and honey sandwiches to eat late at night when we got back to the house (staying at his moms). Last year, we ended up eating fast food every night, so this time I had my sandwich to eat instead. While I did use an insulated bag, none of this stuff had to be refrigerated.

How about some peanut butter to put on bread, crackers or celery? Travels easy and does not have to be kept cold. I think it's a perfect time to use protein bars or drinks. I like Atkins or GNC. I prefer the shakes not chilled. If that doesn't work, stick with the bars. I would also consider making a sandwich at the hotel and bringing it along as the first meal. I would not use mayo, but mustard would be fine. You can freeze a juice box (look for 100% juice) and use as a mini ice pack and then have with your snack or meal. That would probably fit in a purse.
Hope this helps. Have a great trip!

I'm going to Charleston for a few days starting on Saturday. My friend and I both aim to eat a bit healthier and are also looking to minimize cost by bringing some food with us so we aren't eating out 12 times while we're there. We will have a refrigerator and microwave in the hotel room. Any ideas for lunch or dinner items that we could bring with us? (bonus points if the items can be shoved in my purse without needing to stay cold while we are being touristy)
Things I'm bringing: yogurt oatmeal oranges apples carrots hummus
