This is important for anyone living with any type of food restriction. Always have food you can safely eat on hand (or in your pocket, purse or car). You never know when you might get caught out where there is nothing available that you can eat.
I carry trail mix or almonds. These are purchased in bulk and repackaged in single serving snack bags or cups. We also keep a jar of unsalted dry roasted peanuts in the car. For me it is important to have snacks rich in protein available. Whatever snacks you choose remember to try to keep it healthy.
If you know you are going to be out over a meal time it is a good idea to pack at least a light lunch. Sometime food will be available you can eat, but don’t count on it. Learning to take care of ourselves sometimes involves lessons learned the hard way. Get caught without food and this is one lesson you will learn quickly.
