While traveling, most people are stuck between abandoning their healthy eating plans or not traveling at all. It can be tricky to eat healthy while traveling. With a little planning ahead and smart choices, you can stick to a healthy eating plan while traveling.
Let’s talk about snacks for the road and what to take. If you have a long road trip coming up and you are the type that doesn’t like to eat on the road or doesn’t really like the unhealthy options on the road then you will find this travel snacking tips very useful.
Here are some healthy snacks I pack when I am traveling with my family:
• Some hard-boiled eggs.
• Turkey and wraps to make some turkey roll-ups with hummus.
• Protein bars
• Meal replacement shakes for breakfast.
• Beverage mix, it’s got protein in it and it counts as a snack.
• Bananas that are getting a little ripe to make some healthy muffins.
Whenever I travel with my family we like to stay in an Airbnb because we are in and out of meetings the whole weekend. I also love having a kitchen because I can make my own breakfast and dinner, and I can just come down to the refrigerator if I need a midnight snack. I can keep some yogurt, or some eggs in there, and I can just have a snack before bed if I want.
So if you will be staying in a hotel or in a rented Airbnb, try to take things that will be easy for you to put together to make a quick snack or meal and that way you won’t be tempted to snack unhealthily. Some other things that I take along with me are jerky, and cut veggies. I also put either hummus or peanut butter in a mason jar, and cut up celery sticks and just stick them in there. And, that way they’ll just be ready to go.
