Travel Eats

October 18, 2013
While traveling to and from, I like to eat things from home rather than fast-food or gas station eats that others find are their only options. I'm off to Chicago this weekend so these will definitely come in handy for my trip!
Here are some ideas for eating while in the car or high in the sky...

Fruit. It's super easy to toss in a bag and eat on the go. I prefer apple or orange slices, a banana or grapes. Bring along a Ziploc bag for the peel or core so you're not left with a mess.  You can also add some peanut butter to help your snack last! Justin's PB packs are great for travel!

Trail Mix or Nuts. Make your own or portion out some store bought mix into a snack size baggie. Watch your portion here because nuts and dried fruit are healthy for us, but high in calories. Moderation is key.

String Cheese. I LOVE string cheese. It travels well and tastes delicious. Enough said, right?

Energy Bars. These are great because they're so portable. I prefer Larabars but any energy bar will do. Just make sure you read the nutrition label because some of these have waaaay too many calories to be considered a snack. Some may also contain hydrogenated oils (aka trans fats) which you want to avoid.

Vegetables. Celery sticks, carrots, peppers, cucumbers...the list goes on. All of these, when cut up, are great on the go snacks. Throw in a hummus cup and you're all set!

Water. This one is obvious. We need to stay hydrated while we travel. Don't be afraid that you'll have to make a pit-stop. You don't want to feel tired and sluggish once you get to your final destination.
