Thanks for the ideas Patricia, but those type of appliances really aren't practical for me to travel with.  I don't mind the "cold" meals, but it does limit my options for food.

Love the good ideas in this group. Thanks

Daniel, your potatoes, sausage, egg combo is sort of a staple for me. I do the tortilla wrap also. Sounds like tonight's supper!

Yes, welcome Deidre.  We've had many wonderful conversations here about food.  Enjoy yourself.

Sounds good, Daniel.  I try to bring food with me to work, but I don't do it as much as I would like.  As I am usually traveling for a few days at a time, I have to constantly make sure my insulated food bag stays chilled and my cold packs are kept cold with dry ice.  Most hotel rooms do not have refrigerators.  Some do, which is always a luxury. 

Because I don't have microwave ovens readily available, all my food must be cold.  But I do quite well with stuffing some meat, cheese and mustard/mayo into the pocket of pita bread.  That always travels well.  Tuna or chicken salad with saltines is also a good option that I use. 

I like to bring fresh fruit when I can, but apples and oranges tend to take up a lot of space, and I have limited room.  Some hotels have a bowl of apples or oranges available at the front desk which is nice,  Grapes are good because they are smaller and more compact.  More bang for the buck.  I'll take potato salad or cole slaw out of the plastic container and put it into a zip-lock bag.  That saves a lot of space.  I'm loaded down with enough baggage as it is, so traveling as light as possible is always the main goal.

Lunch tomorrow:  Egg burritos.  Not much to them.

I scrambled some eggs, fried up some hash browns in olive oil, fried up some vegetarian sausage links thinly sliced.  Heated the tortillas in a skillet.  Placed some egg, hash browns, sun dried tomatoes, and veg sausage with a sliver of pepper jack, rolled them up.  At work, a minute in the microwave and it's a nice snack / meal.

Welcome Deidre. Glad to see you here. We all swap recipes, talk about various cooking methods, and a lot of us have diet restrictions that make us, by necessity, very creative. You can pick up some great tips here. I know, I have.

After all your comments and recommendations, I feel like rushing out in search of healthy crackers! Those Snyder's look plenty salted however. But I am going to intensify my search. Either that or do what's been suggested: substitute rice cakes or do without. I suppose at my age (71) it really doesn't matter!

Felaine and Randall, on my way back from Court today, I stopped at a little Amish country store in a rural area. The minute I saw this on the shelf, I had to take a picture. I think the Amish lady thought I was nuts. Needless to say, I didn't tell her I was planning on posting the photo, from her store, on an atheist website. I'd like to go back, as they have some incredible stuff.

Joan, this looks like the dual-dome house I remember:
