    Great episode… so many terrific tips for travel. I am gluten-free and get migraines, so I have to be extra careful. I hadn’t thought about bringing tuna and sardines with me. Protein is always the hardest because I can’t eat bars like Epic because they trigger migraines.

    Hi, great episode. Not sure if my comment posted. Loved your tips about taking tuna and sardines. I had never thought of that. I assume you take the pop-top cans? I have migraine and am gluten-free, so protein is hardest to get when I travel. I love the taste of Epic Bars but they definitely trigger migraines for me so I can’t use them.

      Thanks Stephanie! Yes, definitely pop top cans for convenience. I agree with you that protein can be the most difficult to make portable whereas carbs and processed snack foods are absolutely everywhere. Thanks for listening and sharing your thoughts!
