EVERYDAY LIVING, Fitness, TRAVEL

BEST Travel Snacks!

 

I love to travel.  PERIOD.  Cannot get enough of it but, I really, really hate the food on board.  So, I’ve started to pack a few things in my gianormous tote to get me through even the longest flights!  There is also the “gym” option at quite a few big airports these days……

Not only is airport food painfully pricey, it’s usually absolute garbage for you.  Apologies to those shiny, new restaurants and kiosks who are attempting to serve/sell better food.

After a few months of trial and error, I got pretty good at padding my luggage full of decent snacks that met my high criteria; my snacks have to be as minimally processed as possible, require little to no refrigeration, contain very little added sugar, and couldn’t take up any space or weigh hardly anything. Definitely not an easy set of standards. Yeah, trail mix is great, but I can’t be dragging around 10 lbs of almonds in my already heavy luggage (not that I haven’t done this in the past….). Here’s how I go between meals while flying over 10 hours

 

Noka Superfood Blends Pouches

I desperately wanted to refrain from what I call the “baby food fad” — but these Noka pouches have saved my life on the airplane too many times to count. The mango coconut flavor with Camu Camu fruit is tops.

Justin’s Classic Almond Butter Packet

Almond butter is packed with healthy fat and also sticks to your ribs, and you can opt for some of Justin’s flavored options if you don’t mind the added sugar. These never leave my Amazon shopping cart because they are that important to my sanity while flying!

Hard Boiled Eggs

I prep for every 5 am flight by boiling a couple eggs the night before so I can have a protein-packed breakfast on my way to the airport. I leave the shells on and throw them into a plastic baggie with dry seasoning so that I can remove the shells and dip the eggs into the seasoning when I’m ready to eat them. Lately, my seasoning of choice has been Trader Joe’s Everything But the Bagel Sesame Seasoning Blend… which is honestly life-changing for those of us who love bagels but also need to fit in our travel wear.

StarKist Tuna Creations Pouches

Tuna is the easiest protein and omega-3-dense food to travel with since it doesn’t require refrigeration. Thankfully, there are plenty of StarKist Creations flavors to keep me from getting bored of this perfect on-the-run meal. The Buffalo and Lemon Pepper flavors are definitely my favorites.

Emerald Salt + Pepper Cashews 100 Calorie Packs

Thankfully these babies are packaged in 100 calorie increments or else I would be dumping the entire bag into my mouth at one time. This is one snack that I get so excited to eat every time I know it’s waiting for me, which helps keep me from spending money on overpriced airport trail mixes or, those burnt nuts they serve.

That’s It Bars

They’re called That’s It because the two ingredients you see on the front label are all of the ingredients they contain — that’s it! The fruit duo bars are delicious, non-GMO, and have no added sugar, which makes for a perfect sweet pick-me-up when those mid-flight sugar cravings kick in.

Crystal Light Lemon or Peach Tea

There really is no such thing as being too hydrated while flying, but constantly drinking water does get old. This tea is one of my favorites, but any tea will work as long as it’s caffeine free and you look forward to drinking it. Just ask your flight attendant for a bottle of water.  Now, I have run into the super stingy stewardess who will balk at a “bottle” request.  Be persistent.  They must get points or something for coming in with the most full bottles of water! heehee

Babybel Cheese Wheels or Sorento Low-Fat Mozzarella Sticks

Babybel cheeses will stay good for up to four hours without refrigeration thanks to their heavy wax rinds and are an excellent mid-morning snack or before dinner snack. Cheese is packed with protein and helps stave off hunger in between flights so you’re not tempted to overspend or overindulge at the airport.

 

What snacks do you take when flying?  Does it work or are you tempted by the infamous Ice Cream Sundae Cart???!!!
