I hope everyone had a fantastic Christmas. Mine was low key and family oriented which was the perfect antidote to my crazy busy December.
As a follow up to my previous post, I thought I would share some vegan snack ideas that are great to take with you when travelling. It’s always good to stock up the suitcase with some vegan friendly bites in case you don’t know where you’re next meal is coming from. Ha!
Here’s what I took to Amsterdam a few weeks ago.
Protein and Snack bars – now, I may do a separate post of my favourite snack bars as these are a pretty much daily necessity for me. These were the ones that went with me:
Biscuits/cookies- now I do try to keep these to an occasional treat but I justify these by the fact I need some comforting snacks on my work trip. I took some Bourbons (one of those ‘who knew they were vegan?’ biscuits). Tip – these are great dipped in green tea. And I may have splurged in Whole Foods on some of Lucy’s Maple Bliss cookies. Beyond delicious!
(Non Dairy) Milk – a great tip if you are in need of your daily coffee fix (like me) is to take these small cartons of non dairy milk. Most hotels have a fridge which is particularly handy. As it was, Amsterdam has a plethora of coffee shops (no, not those kind of “coffee shops”) that offered soya milk but these are a great idea for when you are stuck.
Tea, tea and more tea – I have become more than a little obsessed with green tea of late and couldn’t bare to be without my favourite kind on this trip. After a manic 14 hour day, it was the perfect relaxing fix. I am currently loving Double Dragon Organic Green Tea from Holland and Barrett.
Let me know what your favourite snacks and drinks are to take away with you. I’m away again in January so would love to hear some more ideas.
Have a fantastic festive period.
