Typically when people travel they may grab something from a convenience store or fast food which can be toxic to our bodies. By being more prepared with these healthy snacks you can satisfy our hunger until you get to a healthier meal option.
1. Fruit and Nut Bars
-Be sure to check the ingredients to ensure they are all natural (whole nuts and fruits) that way you know exactly what it is you’re eating. There are even some that have chocolate so you can satisfy your sweet tooth for only around 5g of sugar.
2. Organic Ground Flaxseed
-Flaxseeds are full of good nutrients, like omega-3 fatty acids, fiber and antioxidants that’ll fill you up. All you have to do is throw some into your salad, smoothie or yogurt.
3. Dried Fruit
-Dried fruit is a great option because it’s very easy to carry around, they won’t go bad and they’re sweet. In small quantities dried fruit is an excellent snack when traveling; just be sure they aren’t packed full of sugar!
4. Raw Nuts
-Raw nuts, such as almonds, cashews and walnuts are easily portable and don’t go bad either. Not only do you get a mood boost from them but they are also rich in protein and can curb your appetite.
5. Rice Chips
– Rice chips are full of flavor and pair well with lots of dips and spreads. This is a great option for those who have wheat/gluten sensitivities or have celiac disease.
6. Sparkling Water
-A healthier option than soda, sparkling water will give you that fizz that you may crave without all the calories and sugars. There’s various flavors out on the market now with natural flavors and free of sugar & sweeteners.
7. Nut Butter
-Nut butter has a ton of protein and nutrients so it’s a great way to re-energize after travel or even while you are out sightseeing. Now you can find portable packets of nut butter that make it even easier for you to bring along with you. Pair your nut butter with your favorite fruit or rice cracker for an even more nutritious snack.
8. Trail Mix
-This is the classic traveler’s food with a great nutrition boost. With all the options out there you are sure to find one that will satisfy your taste buds.
-Apples seem to be the best option when it comes to traveling with fruit. Bananas, pears, strawberries and other soft fruits all seem to get crushed and bruised. Apples have high water content and are filled with fiber so you can stay hydrated and regular while on the go.
10. Fresh Cut Veggies
-Slice up some veggies the night before you travel to ensure a healthy nutritious snack on the go. Veggies like green bell peppers, cucumbers, carrots or celery are all fantastic options.
