When traveling, it’s important to keep your energy level up and cravings at bay throughout your journey. The airport, gas station and convenience stores are chock-full of processed snacks that may be calling your name. Plus, if you’re on a long trip the desire to eat out of boredom may become overwhelming. Therefore, be sure to arm yourself with healthy snack options.
Nuts or trail mix.
You can easily buy individual packets of your favorite nuts and trail mix or make your favorite combination at home and pack it in individual 1/4 cup servings in ziplock bags.
Justin’s almond butter packets.
These individual-sized servings of almond butter are available at most grocery stores and convenience stores. They are delicious on their own or paired with an apple, banana, carrots, celery, whole-grain crackers or a brown rice cake.
Your go-to bar is a perfect portable snack. A few of my favorites are: Kind Bars, Bulletproof Bars, RX Bars, Perfect Bar, Lara Bars and Think Thin Bars. In a travel jam this can even serve as a meal replacement.
Protein powder and green powder.
If you’re a smoothie enthusiast, packing your routine protein powder and powdered greens in a Blender Bottle makes a perfect snack or breakfast on the go, just add water or almond milk.
String cheese, Greek yogurt or hardboiled egg.
These protein sources are easily available at most airports, Starbucks, and convenience stores. You can pair one with some vegetables, a piece of fruit or whole-grain crackers.
Hummus and vegetables.
Another great protein option that I frequently encounter. When hummus is paired with vegetables it makes for a filling fiber-rich snack.
