Portable fat sources?
So I'll be graduating college this May (guess I'll have to upgrade from PrimalStudent to Primal...RealLifeHumanBeing?) and already have a great job set in stone. For my first 3 months, though, I'll be getting trained in another city, and living in a hotel. I'm already trying to think of good food options that I can keep with me in the hotel, or keep in my bag while I'm at training all day.
I love Steve's Jerky: [url=http://www.stevespaleogoods.com/ProductDetails.asp?ProductCode=Paleo-Jerky-Orig]PaleoJerky (Original)[/url]
That'll keep me covered on protein, but I'm at a bit of a loss in terms of fat. I don't tend to do nuts or dairy, so are there any other portable fat sources that you guys can think of?
As a side note, I'll be experimenting during the next few weeks with all-protein meals, to see whether the fat component is really necessary at all to satiate me. Does anybody have experience in regards to the ability of protein to satiate in the absence of carbs or fat?

Let's Do Organic creamed coconut--snip one corner of the bag and squeeze it like go-gurt!
Also toasted coconut chips, olives, or maybe guacamole with proper packaging
Well I do nuts and a small carton of heavy cream when traveling, but you already vetoed those.
Do you consider coconuts...nuts? If you don't, a few jars of coconut oil will last you quite some time.
Pemmican, coconut butter, chocolate, coconut oil.
Nuts and seeds work for me all the time..... woops just read "no nuts or dairy"
Well when I take long car trips I almost always get some sunflower seeds to keep me busy. Those are good. Nothing else is really coming to mind that hasn't been mentioned though.
Portable fat source ? mmm, yourself maybe ? :)
Seriously, some high quality chocolate would do!
Chocolate, canned coconut milk, and avocados.

You beat me to it! I ate a lot of that when I did a section hike on the AT this summer. After the hike I discovered Tropical Traditions coconut butter (I think they call it coconut cream concentrate) and it is even more delicious. It is smoother in texture than Let's Do Organic's. One thing to keep in mind is that it is a very concentrated source of insoluble fiber (35g on total fiber in one packet of coconut cream).
Thanks, everyone. I'm going to order some 98% chocolate and raw cocoa butter chips in bulk before I leave, and keep some olives and avocados in my hotel room. I might even try some of the coconut suggestions, although I haven't been a huge fan in the past -- but tastes change!
I appreciate all the suggestions!
