Traveling with dietary restrictions or with fussy companions can be a challenge — it can be especially taxing to find the appropriate nourishment in airports or on long road trips. GoPicnic created a line of shelf-stable, wholesome meals and that will get through airport security and ensure travelers feel satisfied when dining options are limited. Since 2006, GoPicnic has expanded to include gluten-free and vegan meals. Each meal or snack comes in a small cardboard box and features individually wrapped components.

The Sunbutter & Crackers meal is an ideal vegan, gluten-free, kosher option for children and nut butter lovers. Unlike other nut butters, Sunbutter is less likely to provoke allergies and provides a welcome change of pace from the classic PB&J. The meal includes a Sunbutter Creamy Sunflower Seed Spread, Crunchmaster Multi-Grain Crackers, Enjoy Life Mountain Mambo Seed & Fruit Trail Mix, Sweet Perry Orchards Tropical 100% Fruit Peel-a-Part and two Lucy’s Chocolate Chip Cookies. The entire meal is less than 500 calories, free of trans-fats and contains 12 grams of protein.

For a more savory option, choose the Edamame Kale & Plantain Chip Meal. These flavors are be a bit more complex and best suited for lunch or a savory snack. This meal includes GoPicnic’s own Garden Edamame Kale Dip, Sweet Perry Orchards Crispy Roasted Plantain Chips, Sweet Perry Orchards Ginger Zip Fruit & Nut Mix, Sweet Perry Orchards Tropical 100% Fruit Peel-a-Part and Lucy’s Chocolate Chip Cookies. The Ginger Zip Fruit and Nut Mix is the stand-out item in this meal; it has the perfect balance of sweet, spicy and crunchy.

 

The beauty of these GoPicnic meals is their extensive menu and portability. The company recently introduced a line of breakfasts — Chocolate Almond Butter & Croissant, Creamy Vegetable Spread & Multigrain Crackers, Maple Turkey Sausage, Fruit & Nut Mix — and offers subscriptions and variety packs via their website. Grab a few and travel without worrying about dining options!

What is CBD?

Quietly on the rise is the cousin of tetrahydrocannabinol, or THC, known as cannabidiol, or CBD. THC is the more well-known component of cannabis; however, it is illegal in many states, so CBD has risen in popularity as a legal option. Stores selling CBD continue to pop up in major cities and towns.
