So I leave in 2 days for the Tinker Bell Half Marathon and I have yet to really pack. I’ve pulled things aside, mainly clothes. The plan was to start packing a few days ago, but I’ve been working late hours and am tired. I did take the time to pack my snack/food bag. Yup, a whole bag just for snack and food! Not only will I be down in Anaheim for the Tinker Bell Half Marathon Weekend, but I’ll be staying for a whole week for a little Disney vacation and hanging out with friends and family.
So what’s in my snack/food bag?
Go Picnic food packs- my friend Lianna posted that she bought some of these for her WDW Marathon trip last weekend and they looked pretty cool. I went on their website to find out more info about these Go Picnic boxes and immediately liked that they had so many varieties to choose from. They are basically a picnic in a box that contain individual portions of different snacks that are individually wrapped. They even have gluten-free and vegan options. I found them at Target and they were on sale, 2 for $7. I think I may have bought each of the variety’s that they had.
I was planning on buying my favorite Emerald cocoa roasted almonds, but when I went to the “nuts” section, I saw that Planter’s had their own version of mixed nuts in individual portions, NUT-rition energy mixes. I got the Chocolate Nut mix and look forward to trying it. I also bought some Clif Z bars in Chocolate Chip and Ice Oatmeal Cookie.
I also packed some Clif bars and of course my GU Chomps (for the actual race). Shakeology and my new Hamilton Beach personal-sized blender was a MUST. And I threw in a bar of Ghirardelli chocolate since I love my sweets.
Considering that I’ll be on the go for 2 days prior to the Tink Half roaming the Expo and the Parks, and then I’ll be on vacation for the week post Tink, I wanted to make sure to pack some snacks that would keep me sustained between main meals and not something that was totally junky. PLUS my snacks help keep my budget in control as we all know that food at the Disneyland Resort can add up.
Do you bring your own snacks when you travel or do you just wing all of your meals and snacks? What are your favorite snacks to bring when traveling?
