    Thermos food flask! Make your Pasta n Sauce/Batchelors Savoury Rice/Ainsley Harriot Couscous before you set off!! Alternatively, rice salad and cous cous salad cold. Buying food on the run is a nightmare - haven't found any good grab and run options.

    I really wouldn't make up a P&S in advance - I tried it once and it turned out a slimey, inedible mess.

    I agree, it would be far tastier to make up your own pasta, with some nice homeade sauce and added veggies, same goes for rice etc.

    I agree with circles on the pasta n sauce held in a flask - the pasta becomes so soft you could eat the lot through a straw!!! v yuckky!!!

    However, as a regular traveller I recommend a mini cool bag / box for yogurts, laughing cow, fruit and a food flask for curry, chilli, jacket pot etc. I am also a huge fan of cottage cheese quiche - filling and totally portable!!

    The good food flasks keep food warm for up to 6 hours. You get better results with foods that come in a sauce or liquid as this helps keep it hot.

    You can also get kettles that plug into your car cigarette lighter socket
    12 volt IN CAR KETTLE travel camping boating kettle: Amazon.co.uk: Car & Motorbike

    I've done pasta and sauce in the flask with less water than recommended and it's been ready to eat about 10 minutes later. You need to experiment a bit on quantities and timings to get it right though.

    Cous cous works well though, just put it in a tupperware type box, add boiling water and leave for 5 minutes.

    And with cereal bars and a coolbox for fruit & veggies, drinks, yoghurts etc you'll be good to go!
