  • Love your suggestions. I’m guletn/daity free so here’s what I take ( plus the usuals nuts and seeds)For snacking I love to have Scottish Oatcakes and a tub of hummus to dip them in, and if I have space in my bag, a tub full of cherry tomatoes to eat with each one.If I need a proper meal I do a tub of wheat free pasta with lots courgette/zucchini, green beans etc. in it which I make the night before (cause it tastes great a day later as a salad)) A thin coating of olive oil or pesto keeps it moist and tasty.As a sweet snack dark chocolate nibbled with fresh raw ginger (settles the tummy and helps avoid travel sickness). Because the flavours are strong it’s fairly easy not to over indulge.Plus if you have a bit of raw ginger it’s very fibrous, so chewing it helps with sore ears from air pressure. A bit of cinnamon bark is also good for having a chew on.
