I'll be out of town for 5 days, living in a hotel room betwee nconference sessions. What ideas have you for packing food that will travel well, besides fruit, which is a given. I'm planning to make some breakfast patties, some carob confectins from The Raw Gourmet, and I already have made some flax crackers. 'any other ideas out there?:rolleyes:

Hey yeah, like the Tribest? You could do green smoothies, or fruit smoothies.

are you flying to your conference or driving there?
I'm just discovering how yummy and easy it is to make buckwheat cereals so you could make a bunch of that in advance if you have a dehydrator at home and make some almond milk to take with you if you will have a refrigerator in your room that way you could have cereal on the road. The cocoa crispies from "raw food real world" are delicious!

i recently had business trip to take and i brought power packed granola bars i made up...they were soooo gooood and fruit and crackers.
sorry, not good on the meaurements just the ingredients..
i soaked the oats in the apple juice and then combined everything in a bowl and mixed, put it on wax paper and in the freezer so i could cut it into bars. Then into the dehydrator for overnite on low setting. i think that's it, they travel well anyway hehe. They got me through my trip, very filling and satisfying

I’d get a variety pack of Lara Bars (https://www.larabar.com/secure/index_.php).....if I wasn't a Liquidarian. ;)

I found a fantastic site giving awesome ideas as to what food to bring when going hiking, but these would also be perfect for your trip.
Aside from granola bars and crackers, it also explains how to even enjoy pizza and wonderful, soft veggie wraps.
Check it out here (http://www.rawhike.com/foodplan.shtml)!

I'm on my second full day of a four-day business trip and I've found it pretty easy so far. I packed up some food prep tools and 12 home-made energy bars, plus 2 lara bars and some goji berries. I'm lucky that my hotel room has a mini-fridge; I picked up some groceries and have been able to make most of my meals myself. The one meal I've had at a restaurant so far was just raw veggies with salad dressing for dip.
If there's one thing I wish I had brought, it would be my own salad dressing. I'm writing about my trip on my blog, the link should be in my signature.
