7 Safe Travel Foods

 

Here’s a list of foods I always recommend traveling with when visiting a place with native cuisine. Because let’s face it, not everyone destination will have a Mc Donald’s, or KFC. Warning, not everything on this list will be healthy, organic, and GMO-free, but it will guarantee you make it back home safe and when your supposed to.
