Travel snacks: blueberry pomegranate butter bites

When I travel I always keep snacks in my room- in order to ensure I am able to find healthy snacks in a world that supports convenience foods.
This was my breakfast:

1 TBSP soaked flax seeds from the evening before (in water)

Raw crackers or gluten free crackers
Fresh blueberries and pomegranate
Sunflower seed spread
Dash of sea salt

Delicious and filling. Gives me iron, protein, healthy data and antioxidants.
