Sharing is caring!

Last Updated on October 23, 2020 by Renee’

I was talking to a friend last week & she was trying to figure out what she could pack healthy for their upcoming vacation. She said, “you need to write a post about this”.  I told her I would do that.

Packing for vacation can be stressful enough, but when you are on a special diet like the AIP diet it can be very overwhelming. I am pretty much back to full Paleo now so it’s a little easier.

I have found that traveling while AIP is easier if you plan ahead. I try to take snacks that my whole family can eat that is healthy for all of us. 

Here is a list of some of the items I pack:

  • Honest Jackson Sweet Potato Chips (my favorite) (AIP)
  • Honest Jackson Purple Potato Chips (my daughters favorite)
  • Epic Bars
  • Primal Grass-Fed Beef,  & Turkey Jerky
  • Tanka Bar Buffalo Bites
  • Epic Bites (different kinds)
  • Lara Bars
  • Coco Roons
  • Primal Grass-Fed Beef Sticks
  • Primal Free-Range Turkey Sticks
  • Coconut Chips (AIP)
  • PaleoNola (grain-free granola)
  • Primal Kitchen Dark Chocolate Almond Bars (my husbands favorite)
  • Epic Salmon bites (haven’t tried this yet, just saw it on the website) (ordering now, so excited) (AIP)
  • Medjool Dates (AIP)
  • Organic Black Mission Figs (AIP)
  • Navitas Naturals Trail Mix
  • Go Raw Snacks
  • EXO bars
  • Paleo Diet Bars
  • Bricks Bars
  • Sea Snacks (AIP)
  • Raw Almonds
  • Sunflower Seeds
  • Justin’s Almond Butter Squeeze Packs (Amazon)
  • Simple Mills Paleo Products! Muffins, crackers, pizza crusts, etc…
  • & much much more!

Most of these are paleo, but some are AIP. That way you know you are getting the perfect snack. 

Make sure you plan ahead & research online restaurants & local grocery stores.

If you have a kitchen where you are going & have more room to pack items here are a few suggestions:

  • And don’t forget to pack your Instant Pot! Perfect for making Chicken Salad! My favorite quick lunch at the beach!


Here is a list of some personal Items that I pack:



Maybe you are lucky and have a Whole Foods near you & can get most of these items there.  I’m not, so  Amazon is my best friend.  Plus, who doesn’t like shopping in their pajamas!accessories-84528_640

And don’t forget, a big hat, flip-flops, sunglasses, a good book to read & maybe a refreshing drink with the little umbrella!
