Good, Better, Best Travel Snacks
These are some of my favorite to-go snacks. What are your favorites? Which of those listed do you think will work for best for you and your traveling companions? The more prepared you are, the easier it will be to stick to your goals and feel your best on vacation!
• Chia and/or flax seeds. It’s a good idea to have some extra fiber on your travels, in case your “regularity” goes on vacation! Pack in re-sealable bags (and don’t forget to pack a teaspoon or scoop.) Sprinkle seeds into your cooked oatmeal or your smoothie once a day. • Fresh fruit that’s easy to eat on the road, such as grapes, berries, oranges, sliced apple, bananas. • Mary’s Gone Crackers and/or Suzie’s Thin Rice Cakes. These are some of my favorite travel crackers and crisps; gluten-free options available. • Nut butter single packs. Delicious spread on an apple or the crackers/crisps above. • Oatmeal. Put a few servings into a reusable container or re-sealable bag. See the recipe below for oatmeal on the go. • Protein powder. You can find lots of choices in single-serving packets, or scoop some into a reusable container or re-sealable bag. (See my blog about protein powders). Don’t forget to bring a scooper or spoon! • Trail mix. Combine walnuts, almonds, pumpkin seeds, oats, Goji berries – whatever you like best! Store in small serving containers or re-sealable bags. • Protein bars. Choose those with the least amount of sugar, such as 2 Mom’s in the Raw Nut Bars, Rx Bars, Raw Revolution, or GoMacro Minis. • Single serving hummus with raw baby carrots and/or apple slices.
