Eating Healthy on the Road

Traveling can be challenging when making healthy food choices. You don’t have to compromise your health by settling for unhealthy snacks.

Healthy snacks are important for those in-between meal moments because they sustain your energy from meal to meal, stabilize your blood sugar and keep your mood steady and focus sharp.

Some healthy on the go snacks include:

  • Nuts and Seeds and Trail Mix: An excellent source of high protein. Avoid nuts with additives like vegetable oil and salt.
  • Fruit: If eating at a hotel, grab an extra apple or banana for a snack later in the day.
  • Yogurt: High in protein and good source of healthy fats. Look for full-fat, organic yogurt or one that does not contain artificial flavors or sweeteners like corn syrup.
  • Energy bars: A much healthier and nutritious alternative to chocolate bars. Avoid brands with soy protein isolate, instead choose those containing over 10 grams of whey protein, hemp protein or pea protein.
  • Dark chocolate: High in natural caffeine that can give you that energy boost. Look for brands that list cacao as the first ingredient, not sugar.
