    I must say that I love them all, Amy. Well, if I absolutely had to choose I’d go for the carrot cake bites and the berry salad. Hard boiled eggs are also one of my favorite snacks. Yum!

    These chewy granola bars are easy to make and easy to transport. I make them once a week!

    speaking of eggs; amy what brand of eggs do you prefer? i buy organic but realized not all organic eggs are the same and some have made me sick. i’m sure it’s due to what the chickens were fed…we bought farm fresh eggs locally but i had terrible stomach pains after eating them-hubby called the lady all the chickens were fed was leftover mrs. bairds bread. just wondering how you can know if the chickens were fed gluten and if that effects you at all? i’ve never seen strictly grass fed eggs.

    @robyn, I get my organic, free range eggs from Costco…I don’t have time to get them from a local farmer nor do I have the time to research the farming practices they use. I’ve tried several times and it’s just never worked for my busy life. I’ve never had any problems with the organic, free range eggs from Costco. I’m thinking leftover Mrs. Baird’s Bread isn’t quite what chickens should be eating, huh? Too bad.

    I LOVE quinoa with fruit! It really is a perfect cold snack for summer time. Great round up of summer treats!

    Amy,
    Thank you for such a thorough list. It’s always great to be reminded that you don’t have to stick to only one or two snacks, even if you follow a restricted. diet. There is so much wonderful food that’s available.

    I hope that your readers will consider sticking with some of the non-nut snacks when traveling on an airplane as that can make air travel unnecessarily dangerous to people living with a severe allergy.

    Thank you for always keeping such sunny energy in presenting options for healthy eating and living!!

    @Kim @ Welcoming Kitchen, I always take nuts on the plane with me because they’re a simple, nutritious snack to pack and they take no time at all to prepare. Plus, they travel so well.

    If you’re asking people to consider not taking nut snacks on a place, can you provide some simple alternatives?

    Thanks!
    Amy

    Hi Amy,
    Some of your other ideas work great. You could bring pumpkin or sunflower seeds; a trail mix using pepitas, dried fruit, and sunflower seeds; dried fruit; fresh fruit; a sandwich; nut-free granola; gluten-free pretzels. There are lots of other ideas, too. Although folks can be allergic to almost anything, folks with severe nut allergies can be affected by even the dust of nuts, so it’s great if those of us without nut allergies can come up with alternatives to protect our neighbors!
