What phase are you on? Can you bring a cooler with?

When we went to Louisiana last weekend, I packed a squirt bottle of mustard, a box of Triscuits (ph2), slices of ham, and slices of cheese, both cut into squares. I made 'sandwiches' for snacks as we drove down the road. We also had packages of peanuts.

With a cooler I like hummus, baby carrots, sugar snap peas;babybel cheeses; egg muffins are great finger food; ww wraps & lunch meat, spinach & laughing cow; bean salads. When we traveled by air last year though I lived on baby carrots, strong cheese, & whole grain crisp things. It's tough if you don't have a cooler.

I love the individually wrapped colby jack cheese that Weight Watchers makes. Also SF pudding cups if you are on Phase II. I have kept both of these out of the fridge a long time and they are OK. Also love Oscar Meyer deli thin turkey or chicken. Fresh fruit if you are on Phase II, Whole wheat engish muffin with peanut butter.

Since I am doing the driving and most times alone, I always grab water, a sugar free energy drink to keep my pep, string cheese and a 100 cal bag of nuts. All are easy to eat. As well as sugarless gum. I make sure I eat a meal within an hour of leaving so I am not tempted to stop!

I try to pass the time with the radio instead of snacking!

I am needing this thread as well, and you all have great ideas! I am hoping when we get to chicago the room will have a fridge and I can pack a few snacks like cheese and triscuits to take with me... I also will take some trail mix(I only like to buy it for trips, bc if its around the house I eat it and I don't think its good for me most of the time- too high in calories) but I figure thats better than the cookies or whatever they give on the plane!
