Whenever I fly, I bring AT LEAST one (usually two or three) empty water bottles through security and fill them up at the water fountains. 1) I hate buying bottled water, it's an environmental disaster and since I'm traveling by plane, I'm already putting a huge hole in my eco-footprint; 2) I got really dehydrated on a long flight once and was lethargic for days; 3) I drink a lot of water.
Food is a little harder on flights, but fruit leather is a favorite of mine, as well as trail mix and fresh fruit.
When driving, I drink A TON of coffee, so I drink lots of water to counteract the dehydration. When I inevitably have to make a bathroom stop, I buy some nuts, a V8 and fruit...and more coffee, heehee. V8 is great for road trips! Get your veggies while on the road! When I think far enough ahead (which is rare, let's be honest), I refill the small 12oz bottles with the low-sodium store brand to minimize packaging and keep sodium down.
