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!
I partnered with Orchard Valley Harvest to give one of you girls a $50 visa cash card and get hooked up with some of their on the go wellness mixes! All you have to do is comment below with one thing that will help you stay on track & healthy this summer! My key to staying on track is the Hot Body Sweat Guide and Meal Plan. What’s yours?

I purchased the hot body sweat guide a few weeks ago, and I got the meal plan companion last night; I feel like those will keep me on track this summer! Oh and the new LSF pineapple leggings will be a good motivation. Who doesn’t get motivated by cute workout clothes? 🙂
It is too easy for me to give in to temptations. This summer to stay on track I’m going to communicate my goals with those around me so they will support me when I don’t want junk food in the house or go out for drinks and food after work.
The thing that will help me stay on track this summer is good meal planning, continue exercising and holding myself accountable
Having a routine and sticking to it on the weekend!
My plan to stay healthy and on track this summer is to plan out my workouts, meals and obviously me time (gotta keep that me-time as a priority too?). I’ll also follow your workouts on YouTube!!
My key is not buying junk food – I am not someone who has a strong sense of self-discipline, so if I can keep the junk food out, I’m less likely to eat junk food 🙂
With all the summer barbecues and pool parties coming up I plan to stay on track by bringing a healthy dish with me to make sure I have NO excuses to fill up on unhealthy stuff. I brought a big salad with different dressings on the side to a memorial day barbecue and a few ladies were so thankful there was a yummy healthy addition!
My fun mermaid water bottle and the challenge calendars!
Staying on track with more fiber goods and healthy fats like almonds!
i meant fiber FOODS! 🙂
Fly wheel will keep me on track!!
I’ll stay on track this summer by having a plan. Having a plan starts with grocery shopping for the right ingredients, meal prepping for every meal and snack, and mentally preparing for unplannable things, like random BBQs and going out to eat. I can still stick to my plan to the best of my ability by suggesting restaurants with healthy options and picking only clean food at a family event.
Every time I start to get dehydrated or hungry I reach for a bottle of water first. Not a sugary drink or binge on food.
Tracking my workouts on my calendar so I can visualize my progress.
I’m tying to drink close to a gallon of water a day! And always drink a glass when I wake up in the morning! ??
The one thing that has kept me on my plan thus far is the hot body meal plan, I love that I can pull it up on my phone when we are traveling or when I’m out and about, so I can stick to the guide as much as possible! I can’t wait to see what recipes and guidance the guiltless nutrition guide and recipe book will have, but I know it will be delish! If anyone doesn’t have it try Katie’s YouTube &obligation recipes and you will see they are tasty which is why I like the Hot Body… Read more »
A food diary!
Trying to track my food, water intake, and steps with my Fitbit app so I can stay healthy this summer!
For me it’s water water water! It’s so key to me staying healthy. If I don’t remind myself to drink water I could go all day without anything. But then I eat like a psychopath because I’m trying to satisfy my THIRST! For me to make healthy food decisions I have to be hydrated!
I am currently on Weight Watchers but I’m thinking about getting the LSF Hot Body Meal Plan. I am also doing bootcamp classes at my gym 3x’s a week and running 2-3x’s a week as well.
I plan to use the meal guide & find new videos each day to change up my work out routine! Thank you for this post! I’m doing some traveling the next few months to Disney World & needed some healthier snack options to have with me on the plane & while I’m in the park!
I’m staying on track with outdoor activities! Now that the weather is nice I can run, do the sweat guide, kayak, yoga and everything else where I love to be: Outdoors! ?
I stay on track by journaling my meals. It’s somewhat archaic in the digital age but it helps me out a lot to see what I’m eating in a day.
My new energetic dog will keep me on track. I’m going to start taking him on runs?
My go to this summer is the Meal Plan! Already doing Sweat Guide, but as a teacher I needed the summer to get in the habit of prepping my meals. Can’t wait for more amazing results!
One thing that’ll help me stay on track is taking snacks with me wherever I go. I’m always getting hungry when I’m out and it’s so convenient to stop at a fast food place but I always feel sick after I eat it.
It’s gotta be portion control for me, especially with all the summer treats. So either proportioned snacks/meals or sharing with the kids so I don’t eat a whole serving of all the sweets
One thing that keeps me on track is the feeling after working out I always feel rejuvenated!
It is SUPER hard to stay on track while traveling, but these are great tips! I find that having a trip or two to look forward to (particularly ones that involve a bikini or two) help keep me really motivated! I also love finding positive and motivational people to follow on social media. Awesome giveaway!!
I will stay on track this summer by never going three days in a row without working out. I will not feel guilty when I indulge a little bit – I will get right back on track with my workouts and healthy eating. I will do a lot of outdoor activities (tennis, hiking, running etc.). I also just joined a volleyball team for the first time in four years so that’ll keep me active for sure ☺️
I’m going to track my water to make sure I get enough!
The one thing that will help me stay on track this summer is meal prepping on Sundays for the week ahead! And that includes healthy snacks 🙂
I’m doing a combination of things to stay on track this summer for my wedding in September!! ?Routine routine routine being number one! Keeping my daily routine consistent and healthy makes it effective and keeps me on track over all (meeting water goals everyday, daily sweat session, clean meals and a good rest every night) oh! And of course the LSF sweat guide for sure ☺️??
My daughter helps me stay on track and healthy! It’s so important to me that I can keep up with her and do the things she wants. (She’s two so she’s a handful <3.)
Staying on track is a little hard, but having an 8 year old daughter helps a lot! I want her to see me eating and exercising. That way she will follow in my steps. When it comes down to it, it’s my daughter that helps me stay on track!
The hot body sweat guide will help keep me on track this summer. I was on vacation all last week and while my eating wasn’t great, it wasn’t as bad as normal for a vacation. I was also able to keep up with 4 days of the workouts in our beach condo which made it super easy. Thanks Katie!
There is a new bikini I haven’t wear yet, and having a little extra time to workout and rock it off in the beach is really my motivation this summer
In Australia it is going into winter but lucky for me I live in the most tropical part of the country so it’s never cold. I am new to all of this and I am planning on starting my LSF JOURNEY today by staying hydrated and swapping bad snacking habits for healthier ones-ie having an apple instead of biscuits for my afternoon tea. Thanks for the ideas.
Keeping hydrated will help me stay on track! I’ve always struggled with my water intake but realized that drinking water has so many benefits ?
Being prepared will help me stay on track this summer!
I am getting married next year and agreed to go dress shopping in June! So my fiancé and all my bridesmaids are holding me accountable! They literally text me daily and I send pictures throughout the day of my food and workouts. Being held accountable has really made a difference in my consistency!
My key to staying healthy and on track this summer is to consistently live by the hot body sweat guide. I have three kiddos and my body has changed so much, I’m super motivated and definitely want to get in shape this summer. You are definitely my thinspiration and that will also keep me motivated and on track along with eating healthy meals and snacks. Xo leilani
Since the begin of this year I wish to start a diet to have a beautiful body because since I was a little girl I suffer with the way my body looks and I was victim of body shaming and bullying so I wast determinate to change that, in January I went to see a Nutritionist for my meal plan, at the begin my only purpose was to look skinny to stop the bullying and body shaming I was suffering but then I realized that I was feeling happier, healthier and with a lot of energy; so I stop and… Read more »
Planning ahead of time!!! It’s the only way with three small children to keep on track with my goals and make healthy decisions. On the go running around with them we always have to have snacks. Prepping snacks before saves us.
Doing yoga with my friends and taking time to meal prep keeps me motivated.
I just bought a fitness and nutrition planner that keeps me accountable and on track to meet my goals this summer as well as attaining a balanced and healthy lifestyle. I also stock my fridge with plenty of fresh veggies, fruits, and healthy carbs/fats. With the beautiful summer weather approaching I love grabbing my headphones and walking/running outdoors. Then, I come inside and tone up by working out to your Lovesweatfitness YouTube videos. ????? #strongissexy
One thing that has kept me on track so far is the hot body meal plan food prep. Omg good prepping is key. Especially the snacking meals. Meal #2 and Meal #4. If I have everything to go, I’m less likely to grab unhealthy food.
Meal prepping is huge for me to stay on track!
One thing that will help me stay on track this summer is making as many meals at home with fresh groceries as possible.
The one thing that helps me stay in track this summer is knowing that I am going on vacation in 11 weeks! ?
Accountability is key! I’ve convinced (not that it took much effort) my friends to join in on the lsf fun! Although I’m super happy with my results (I’ve gone down 3 pants sizes!!!?) I know I’ve still got ways to go and accountability & the lsf community are what’s gonna get me going this summer!!
