Packing makes me happy. It means I'm off to the next adventure. Packing for a trip or, what I'm doing right now is boxing everything up for a move. When you are packing, think ahead to how you will get food. If you are packing your home up, will you keep a pot out for making breakfast before you leave? Where will you get lunch? Snacks? Water is often the only good option on a plane or in a train station.
I will toast some seeds ahead of time, sprinkled with ume vinegar or Tamari and have them in my backpack or purse. I'll usually also bring a little dried fruit or an apple and a sandwich. Because the last day before moving or leaving for a trip involves cleaning out the fridge, I most likely purchase a wrap or sandwich from a local restaurant or health food store. Unless I've managed to keep just what I need to make myself something. Don't assume you will be able to find something along the way. That might leave you no options between starving and eating oreos for a meal. I've had my share of french fry meals and that leaves your immunity low and not feeling so great. A few minutes of planning for yourself and your family, can make your journey that much happier.
