Do any of these scenarios sound familiar? 1) Dashing through the airport, looking for breakfast but ending up with airplane pretzels. 2) Driving on an unfamiliar highway debating the merits of lunch at Cinnabon or Roy Rogers. 3) Eating a somewhat unidentifiable meal in a foreign country and going to bed hungry.
We've been there! Out of our element and in need of a healthy, wholesome snack to power us through the day. Which is why we're constantly searching for new foods to stash in our back pockets.
This week, Team Fathom sampled snacks from new "real food" brands and picked our favorites. These are the Fathom-approved bars, mushroom tonics, and roasted bean snacks we'll be toting in our carry-ons.
Start your adventure with a beautifully packaged, nutrient-dense, whole-food bar. The ingredients are so fresh that they only last a week after delivery, so plan accordingly.
This protein snack will set you back a pretty penny, but we think it's worth it. A traditional Filipino-style marinade is mixed with a Mexican-inspired chipotle glaze to create an elevated (and worldly) beef jerky.
It's hard to believe that the delicious silky, dark milk chocolate truffles are made with just seven ingredients. Added bonus: You can feel good about the individual packaging because they come in compostable wrappers.
Indulge your sweet tooth with a non-dairy alternative to the chocolate pudding cup you packed in your grade school lunch bag. The unusual texture can take a little getting used to, but you'll get so much pleasure from a sinless treat.
