Cooking on the cheap shouldn't mean minute rice and buttered pasta every night. With a little creativity and a little planning, Gabriella Paiella shows us how to make the most of a tight budget -- without sacrificing flavor or variety. 

Today: Here are the snacks you should pack to make holiday travel a little more tolerable. 


Whether by land, sea (hey, who knows?), or air, holiday travel is notoriously hellish. We can all look forward to being subjected to gridlocked traffic, overcrowded buses, or handsy TSA pat-downs before we make it to our final destinations. 

But perhaps the worst part is that in the midst of holiday shopping and packing, we typically forget to bring a snack. Being forced to eat airline food or shell out exorbitant amounts of money for mediocre trail mix is enough to make even the most patient holiday traveler hangry. 

So, here are an assortment of easy, cheap, packable meals that you can prep in advance to make your journey a little less unpleasant.
