Travel snacks. No one likes a hangry friend….
Whether you’re hanging at the beach, road trippin’ or flying around the world, bringing healthy snacks is the KEY to keeping you feeling good during your trip and post-vacation. There are a lot of choices out there to grab on the go, most of them super unhealthy, but these are the best travel snacks so you can pack up and feel confident all summer long. Believe me… everyone on your trip will appreciate it too!
The goal is to get some healthy fats and proteins in your system that will eliminate the urge to grab chips, candy bars and other not so pleasant snacks. Otherwise, your blood sugar can start to spike, with most snacks offering little to no nutritional value.
Nuts to You!
I have nuts with me at all times. I’ve literally brought extra carryon luggage just to hold snacks when I travel! They’re in my car, purse, gym and beach bags ALWAYS!
Last fall I told you guys about the Orchard Valley Harvest Omega-3 Wellness Mixes and I just tried their Cranberry Almond Cashew trail mix this week. Those are literally my two favorite nuts and who doesn’t like cranberries?
The mix of almonds and cashews is a great source of HEALTHY fat, protein, fiber and magnesium (good for sore muscles!). Why are they the best snack to travel with? They come in perfectly portioned little pouches so you can take it on the go without over doing it. Too much of a good thing can be a bad thing.
Besides nuts, when I travel I always pack up some homemade protein balls. They’re easy to make and are a perfect snack to give you a little boost of energy on the go. They’re like little balls of heaven, super sweet and basically a dessert.
There are a million different ways to make them and I have several recipes here and on YouTube. *Super important to note: If you’re taking them on the road, don’t soak your dates. They will last longer with dry dates in an airtight container or bag.
Turkey Jerky is another amazing travel snack. Since it’s dried it will last for weeks in your bag. It’s a great snack when you are trying to keep it lean because turkey jerky is packed with protein, plus a healthy amount of fat and carbs. Make sure you read the labels though! Not all jerky is created equal! Look for brands with low sodium and sugar to keep it nice and healthy.
These three snacks together and you can’t go wrong while on the road. Especially since Orchard Valley Harvest has tons of different mixes, it gives you a good variety to always switch up your snack game. Since I love them so much, I have a special giveaway for Team LSF!
