I'm doing a fair bit of traveling this summer (vacation and business, which for me is fun), so I'm on the prowl for things I can take along that provide nutrients and won't get confiscated by airport security. (Like the little carton of yogurt that my mom tried to take onboard a couple weeks ago. Who knew that yogurt was considered a gel??) Lately, I got some cookies and brownies from The Protein Bakery, an East-Coast outfit that makes high-protein, high-fiber, wheat free, trans-fat-free, low-sodium goodies that are easy to tuck into my bag. I'm especially impressed by their new Oatmeal White Chocolate Blueberry Cranberry Cookie (also called the Red, White, and Blue Cookie): YUMMY, 4g protein per cookie, and studded with dried berries to boot. I'd eat these for dessert, let alone a nutrient-rich snack.
And I'd be remiss as DL's food editor not to remind you of our Oat-Date Bars, a delicious take-along treat that's easy to make.
