  1. Thank you for this list. I don’t eat paleo but one of my favorite snacks to carry is cheese cut up or (less ideal) cheese sticks. Your link for the coconut manna is not working for me.

  2. So funny…I have totally carried an emergency avocado! And have carried many of the snacks you mention. Love Wild Planet lightly smoked sardines, but careful about traveling with them because they are pretty smelly. Any the Go Raw pumpkin seeds are amazing!

  3. Hey Laueren!

    Doesn’t buttermint = dairy?

    I just came back from a trip to the west coast ie Victoria and should have packed some of these! 🙂

    Love your recipes and well-researched articles. Keep bloggin’

  4. The emergency avocado is a life savor! I have a similar go-to travel list.

    Beef jerky made from ground beef and coconut aminos in my dehydrator is also at the top of my list because it’s cheap for me to source grass-fed ground beef and it can replace a meal in the event I’m in a situation that isn’t healing-diet friendly.

    Coconut butter has also become a staple for me on road trips. I mix a few tablespoons of coconut butter with a teaspoon or 2 of honey in a little glass jar and take it with me to use as an instant (decaf) coffee or tea creamer/sweetener.

    Thanks for putting together this list!
