I have food allergies, so even when I am not traveling, I must be careful with what I eat. I like to take some food with me, because I may not be able to find anything I can eat in an airport or bus station.
I went on a trip for work in June. My bus left very early in the morning before I would normally eat breakfast. I had made up ham sandwiches the night before and put them in Ziploc bags. I also had a couple of those blue freezer things. I packed the sandwiches and freezer things in a pocket of my bag. I also bought a bottled water, my travel mug, some tea bags, stevia, 4 Larabars, and an apple.
For cleanup in between stops and getting rid of trash, I took along a package of hand wipes and a large Ziploc bag. When I got to my destination, I went to a nearby grocery store and bought a box of cereal, almond milk, several pieces of fresh fruit, lunchmeat, and gluten free bread. In the end, I not only ate well and avoided any allergy disasters, I also saved a lot of money by not buying very much food on the road.

Tips for traveling with allergies. Post your ideas.
When traveling and you have allergies, take your own pillow case. I went to visit friends in Florida this weekend and they have cats. I took my own pillow case because the cats are allowed all over the house. I kept my door shut and didn't touch the cats. I did pretty good.
