One of the best things about the online food allergy community is how incredibly supportive people can be. One of my online pals, Natalie, produced a film called Risk At First Bite, about living with food allergies. And after a long period of waiting the premier weekend is finally here! How could I miss it? I had to fly down from Toronto for the occasion. It's so rare to see food allergies in the spotlight in this capacity. And also a great excuse for my friend Karrie and I to get to sunny LA.
I never eat airplane food and always bring my own snacks with me as you know from my previous travel posts. This time I brought a banana, an orange, and a pack of MadeGood Apple Cinnamon Granola Mini's. I often tire of eating safe snacks that are full of empty calories when I travel, so I love that these have the nutrients from a full serving of vegetables in every bag. I also kept them with me for a sweet treat when we hit the beach, and for a nutritious snack when we went for an afternoon hike. Having safe snacks in my purse lets me relax, and when they're both healthy and delicious too, I'm one happy traveler!
