Challenge #23 - Improvising while Traveling

How do you eat while traveling when you have restrictions?  I went on a short trip this week (left Wed. morning,came home Thurs. evening) and needed to get a little creative.  I wasn't checking any luggage because of the length of the trip, but I did bring apples, pears, bananas, and a bag of dried fruit/nuts in my carry-on.  This worked for snacks and breakfast.  Here's what I did for lunches:
There was a super Walmart where I was, so I purchased organic arugala/spinach, pre-washed ready to go veggies, tomatoes, and guacamole.  I throw it all in the arugala/spinach container and lunch.  I remembered to take a photo half way throw finishing (empty guacamole container)but I think you get the idea.
Improv Salad
On my way home, I wanted to have lunch while sitting at the airport. So I found a place to make salads and got a large container of mixed greens with a few veggies.  I then found a magazine/snack place and was able to get organic unsulfered dried fruit and raw almonds.  Mix them all together and you have a beautiful salad.  I also bought a banana to have after my salad.  Below is what I purchased to make a little meal.  Much better than airplane food!
