{guest post} - the boot.

marissa from the boot, is one of the sweetest bloggers i have been fortunate enough to  meet. she is living the dream, overseas in italy with her fiance, teaching young children and cooking up some tasty meals. every time i go onto her blog i smile... and then get hungry.
I'm always on the go - car trips exploring towns in Puglia, train rides to new cities in Italy, transatlantic flights to visit home and family in the summer time - so I'm pretty much an expert in travel snacking. In Italy, I'm what they call "a good fork" meaning I like to eat a lot, so I'm always prepared to be hungry, even when I'm in transit! :) What are your favorite travel snacks?

1) Trader Joe's Swiss Dark Chocolate with Hazelnuts - delicious and good for you because it's dark! 
2) Dean & DeLuca Granola - super satisfying and full of flavor. i like to crunch on it during those in-flight movies.  
3) Peanut M&M's - this is my guilty pleasure candy. there's a nut/chocolate trend happening in this list!
4) Carrot Sticks and Hummus - when you feel like something more substantial that candy, this is healthy and easy to pack!
5) Vita Coco - on long flights, to keep your jet lag at bay you need to stay hydrated. not only is coconut water super tasty but it's more hydrating than water alone. win win!
6) Snyder's Soudough Specials - i love a good, hard pretzel anytime, but while traveling they're perfect because they don't break in your bag!

Thanks so much for having me today Jill! If you're hungry for more of my musings and recipes, come by the boot sometime!
