Hi all,

I am just starting OWL and in need of meals/snacks that do not require refrigeration. I would prefer real/whole foods, not bars or shakes and no nuts (a trigger food for me). Any suggestions?

So far all I've thought of are fax meal crackers, kale chips, cherry/grape tomatoes, radishes, baby carrots, celery, etc., cans/pouches of tuna or chicken (but would require can opener or scissors and fork), pork rinds (not interested). Looks like I'll probably have to break down and eat the Atkins bars once in a while. Let me know if you think of anything.

Thanks Vicki, yes I thought of those and just posted them as well as a few other items, but the post hasn't shown up yet.

thanks everyone. I just looked in the store and the tuna comes in the foil pouches, that would work great w/o the can opener.

Vanci,
What is the brand or store to get the flax crackers, I am dying for something to crunch other than celery???

drivingmom,

I haven't tried the flax crackers yet, but several recipes on the web (just google flax crackers). Here are a couple;

The individually wrapped cheddar cheese sticks and Babybell cheese rounds don't need refrigeration for the course of a day. Just don't leave them in a hot car. I buy Beef & Cheese snacks for my son to keep in his backpack at school and they aren't refrigerated at the store. They have a beef stick and a cheese stick, packaged together.

In the tuna section, you can get little packs of premixed tuna salad (pull top) and crackers. You could ditch the crackers and eat it with raw veggies.

You can also get little purse sized packs of peanut butter. Our store has them in the regular PB section and the all natural kind in the organic section. It's good on celery, apple slices, and probably low carb crackers, too. If you can find the little almond butter packs, it is even lower in carbs.

I just thought of something else that might help. I have a 3 hour art class on Fridays and we bring a lunch. I got a cute little neoprene zippered lunch bag from Target and in the same section, a square plastic container (about sandwich size) that has a little freezer thing that fits in the lid. I just put my lunch in there and the freezer pack inside the thermal lunch bag has kept everything safely chilled so far. They are in the sporting goods section.

If you use the lunch bag with the freezer container in it, you could have meat/cheese roll ups and veggies w/dip or dressing. I have that often for on the go lunches.
