How Do You Snack Healthy While Traveling?
BY BEING PREPARED!
The easiest way to make bad nutritional decisions while on the road is by not being prepared and giving into temptation by the airport or gas station snack options. This applies to a day trip or a month long journey. Vacation is a good time to splurge, but only in moderation and only when it is really worth it.
Traveling Gals Tip: Prepare snacks in advance of any trip. It may take extra time beforehand, but is well worth the effort!
Start by determining the amount of days you will be away from home and figuring out three healthy snack options per day. They must be portable and not require refrigeration. The following are some ideas:
- Homemade Granola
- Seaweed Snacks
- Raisins & Seeds
- Homemade Date/Nut Bars
- Baked tortilla chips
- Vegan Jerky
- Popcorn (not the movie theater butter kind!)
Each of your snack selections should be separated into individual single serving bags. This way you can just grab a few on your way out in the morning. By always having a few snacks on hand you are never stuck choosing not only unhealthy food, but food you may not even fancy. Happy hunger-free Travels!
We will be adding to this list as we come up with more snack ideas!
