Recently, we were on a trip from home from North Carolina to California. Usually, when I am preparing to fly, I have a bunch of snacks with me, and I can keep myself happily fed with my stash. But this time, since we were on our way home, I didn't have a chance to load up on flight snacks. Plus, we had to wake up at 4 am, and I am just not really thinking about snacks at 4 am. "I'll just grab something at the airport," I thought. Well, as soon as we arrived, the plane was already boarding. My tummy began growling.
When I get super hungry, I do get irritable, but most of all I get super weirdo spacey and indecisive. Mr. Vegan Eats & Treats calls it "Food Disease." So maybe my doodle is not quite right.
Imagine my DELIGHT when I found these Go Picnic treats at our layover. Right when I was preparing to curl up and die. Not all the Go Picnic meals are vegan, but TWO of them are (actual choices!!!!): Hummus + Crackers, and Sunbutter + Crackers. PLUS they are gluten free. AND peanut-free. Seriously.
For the sake of vegans everywhere, I got both - so I could check them out and tell you all about it. The treats inside cover the gamut of a vegan's food needs: savory, fruity, nutty, proteiny, and sweeties. I'm sorry I don't have a picture for you... I was too busy chowing down like a ravenous beast. But I'll tell you about it:
Hummus + Crackers: hummus packet, crackers, trail mix, dry roasted edamame & an Endangered Species chocolate square
25 grams of protein!
Sunbutter + Crackers: Sunflower Seed butter, crackers (xgfx), trailmix, dried fruit snax, Enjoy Life chocolate chip cookie. (this one is all nut free)
12 grams of protein!
I was really stoked on these meals, and I will definitely buy them again next time I see them in an airport. Plus, it's really cute - on the inside of the box there are little puzzles and things to read and stuff. Really, I gotta say, I loved these so much - and I was SO grateful to find a nutritious, yummy, and satisfying vegan option in an airport snack shop. I went in hoping for a Clif Bar & came out with TWO vegan meals! It looks like you can buy these online, and I'll definitely consider it before my next flight. That's a way better plan than taking my chances with random airport food!
