Hi, you two. The following are a list of popular items:
• Fresh and dried fruit
• Cut raw vegetables
• Oven-baked vegetable chips
• Nuts and seeds
• Trail mix combinations of nuts, seeds, and dried fruit
• Sandwiches – good breads with nut butters, hummus and similar spreads, tahini, canned or smoked fish, cheese, homemade “cold cuts” from fresh meats, egg salad, etc.
• Whole grain or Paleo crackers plus any of the above
• Hard-boiled eggs
• Sliced or string cheese
• Cottage cheese
• Yogurt
• Milk (dairy or vegetal), plain or flavored with cocoa powder and a recommended sweetener
• Hearty soup in a thermos (2-3 food groups, i.e. meat or legume, vegetable, whole grain)
• Hearty smoothie/shake in a thermos (2-3 food groups, i.e. fruit/vegetable, dairy/vegan, seeds)
• Edamame or other legume/pulse snacks
• Whole grain or Paleo cereal or granola (cold in small sealable bag, cooked in thermos)
• Canned beans
• Prepared healthy foods in containers – from leftovers or prepared the night or weekend before.
• Homemade whole-food muffins or bars
• Popped grains, i.e. organic popcorn, sorghum, quinoa

If you use the Menu Planner application to build your menus, you can select these for both your meals and snacks.

Yes, some more practical easy carry items would be good.

I fly a local air ambulance and am often on call 24/7. This amount of food / cooking etc just does not fit in with a random schedule.

Could do with a menu Create Check Box , that allows for menu creation of Non cook main meal items. Things that can be grabbed from a local supermarket / filling station with no need to cook.

ideally airport security friendly too…so less than 100ml if liquid.

Hi – I am new to TDC and am wondering whether anyone has ideas for snacks that are easy to take to work and eat on the go… some of the ideas are easy – such as an apple and 2 oatcakes, but some not practical for me. Has anyone got any tips?
