Be prepared- always have food and water with you so that you aren’t quick to make a bad choice. Some of Julie’s favorite foods to travel with are salads, saving the plastic containers that your lettuce come in or put your salad in a gallon ziplock bag. Remember to keep your salad dressing separate so that your lettuce doesn’t get mushy and gross. The small to go ramekins can be bought in the section of the store where you get your sandwich bags or aluminum foil.
For protein, wild caught tuna is the best (wild planet or safe catch), leftover chicken is great, for a plant-based protein, chickpeas, lentils, quinoa, or hemp seed are all good options.
Keeping a small bottle of olive oil in your purse and ask for lemon at a restaurant will help you to make good choices as far as dressing for a salad.
Using the to go ramekins are a great way to store snacks like nut butter or even plain nuts.
Fruit that is easy to keep with you like apples, oranges, peaches or bananas is another great traveling snack.
Veggies like mini carrots and peppers are good to snack with hummus or guacamole.
Crackers are good to eat as well to eat with your salad, hummus or guacamole.
Homemade trail mix – raisins or craisins, mixed nuts, and some dark chocolate
If you are taking a cooler, freeze some yogurt pops, Stonyfield is a brand that we love. But we also recommend siggis for a traditional dairy and Kitehill for dairy free. Make sure that you also have water bottles in the cooler.
If you are going on a long road trip and you are trying to make good choices, we recommend putting your snacks out of arms reach so that you are not just snacking to snack.
For hotel travel, we take a small cooler and take advantage of the mini-fridge and free ice. As far as the continental breakfast the boiled egg with some Everything But the Bagel seasoning sprinkled on top. Yogurt and fruit from the breakfast bar is also another great option.
For air travel, make sure that you have a stainless steel water bottle and your favorite citrus essential oils.
