20 Best Travel Snacks and Portable Meals

(Image credit: Apartment Therapy)

We are a bunch of eaters on the go — not only during the busy holiday travel season, but also during the rest of the year as we rushing off to classes, meetings, and who knows what else. Our schedules don’t have to mean resorting to take-out or scarfing handfuls of trail mix every day. Here are all our best recipes from 2012 that can be made ahead, packed up, and eaten on your schedule.

All of these recipes will be fine out of the fridge for a few hours and don’t need to be reheated. Pack the salads in lightweight containers and don’t forget a fork!

Welcome to The Kitchn’s Best of 2012 roundup!
From December 17 through January 1 we are rounding up some of our favorite (and your favorite) posts from the past year.
