Good easy to travel snacks that are not nightshades!

Hi all,

I am about a month into a mostly paleo diet and in need of some snacks for work (I teach gymnastics so it is an active job, I am working out on the job for up to 5 hours a day) and hiking trips.I do not have a gallbladder so to much fat of any kind without a balance of protein and some starch is really hard on my stomach. I also have an autoimmune disorder and am trying to work towards being more nightshade free. I have been WAY overdoing it on the nuts (also a night shade no-no) and dried fruit! My body really requires a lot of protein, as I have always had a high metabolism that Paleo sent into overdrive! I got a stomach virus and lost almost 8lbs in 3 days, just to put it into perspective. Took a week of stuffing my face full of every paleo food in sight to put it back on. So now that you have the background I need some good easy to travel, stable snacks that will keep me full and don't require any heating/refrigeration.

Also thoughts on homemade, no sugar or low sugar jello from grass fed gelatin sources?

Pemmican could be just what you're looking for. Bile salts too.

Great thanks for all the suggestions! Unfortunately I can't stand the "fishy" taste of tuna or sardines out of a can. Haven't tried oysters that might work :)

Why do you say that nuts are a nightshade no-no?

I get jerky from gourmet grassfed (http://gourmetgrassfedmeat.com/). It's pricey but the cows are treated well and totally grassfed and no sugar in the original flavor.

Depending on how long you're out for, hard boiled eggs can work. I know someone who dices hard boiled eggs and tosses it with frozen blueberries then tops with slivered almonds. I never tried it but she says the blueberries refrigerate the eggs and that it all tastes yummy together.

You could probably do something similar by roasting a chicken, stripping the meat, cutting it into chunks, then freezing it. It would be thawed but still cool several hours later.

Trader Joe's has smoked oysters (and maybe sardines?) packed in olive oil, so you don't have to eat nasty seed oils with it.

When I was travelling and needed an emergency meal on hand, I brought a can of chicken, a can of beets, some slivered almonds, and a little container of olive oil and balsamic vinegar. I opened all the packages and mixed it all together. It was a little weird tasting, but not bad. And when there was nothing else available, I was really glad to have it!

If you can do coconut, coconut chips from Tropical Traditions (mix with jerky for nut free trail mix): http://www.tropicaltraditions.com/organic_dried_coconut.htm

Snack Sticks from US Wellness (they also have a pemmican bar I haven't tried): http://www.grasslandbeef.com/Categories.bok?category=Grassland+Beef%3ASnack+Sticks

I love a piece of turkey layered with butter, pepperoni, and pickles, rolled up.

I have this on my list of recipes to try: homemade fruit snacks from gelatin & honey: http://thankyourbody.com/homemade-healthy-fruit-snacks/

I also like to make this carrot salad and take it with me: http://kennedycircusunleashed.blogspot.com/2011/04/curry-carrots.html

I would second jerky or any sort of preserved meat, by far the best type of snack would be to get some protein in.

Also, you could make some "energy bites" out of coconut flakes, coconut oil, and a little honey. Paleo Parents has a nice recipe here: http://paleoparents.com/featured/apple-pie-balls-nut-free-larabar-wannabes/

Snacks are pretty difficult on the autoimmune protocol if you aren't doing dried fruit. Have you tried eating more at mealtimes so that you don't need snacks? That is how I have fixed the snack problem since going AIP.

Beef or turkey jerky are nice grab and go snacks. Bone broth in a thermos might carry you a ways too. A baggie of carrot and celery sticks makes a great snack. Canned sardines, tuna, or salmon travel well and taste good right out of the can.
