We are looking for shelf-stable, packaged proteins and veggies that are gluten free to go in lunches. We know about GoPicnic already, but we'd like some more variety and real vegetables of some sort! Proteins are mostly easy (spreads, dips, cheeses, jerkies), but finding the individual packed shelf stable ones are tough. We have found no veggies that fit the bill at all- we were thinking freeze dried veggies, but that sounds unappetizing and looks really expensive (also not individually packaged).

OrganicFoodFilter: I'm looking for some information sources and populated forums discussing local farming options, organic food, pasture-raised meats, humane meat animal treatment, etc. Do such forums exist? Do such forums with a decent sized Los Angeles community exist? [more inside]
